Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman starring Jane Seymour as a doctor who set up her practice in Colorado in the 1860s. Michaela Quinn was a fictional woman, but the show often tried to address historical issues of the time that were quite controversial. Tackling such subjects as homophobia, race relations, and the government's mishandling of Native Americans, Dr. Quinn was quite a modern woman living in the old west days.
Dr. Quinn is a refined woman doctor from Boston who arrives in a rough pioneer town in Colorado that thinks it is getting a male doctor. Quickly adopting a set of children when a friend passes away, Dr. Quinn sets up practice in the town of Colorado Springs and is shocked to find that the town is not too thrilled to have her. All that changes over time as she becomes an integral and trusted part of the town and even finds love with Joe Lando's character named Sulley.
The show has a large cast of regulars that really develop their characters over the six year span of the series. Much more grown up stories than Little House on the Prairie, but still having that same wonderful way of taking you back to a simpler time, Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman is a popular show with families, though many of the episodes deal with sensitive subjects that will go over the heads of the younger kids.

Such a poplular and high quality show as Dr. Quinn attracted many quality guest stars over the years. Some Include: James Keach, Stacy Keach Sr.,
Johnny Cash, June Carter Cash, Kenny Rogers, Willie Nelson, Travis Tritt, and more! The cast and the guest really were excellent on this series.
I would highly recommend this series for anyone who likes the Old West, Native American, Pioneer times, or medical pioneer stories.
