Joke… I actually like the show. Pero shet sila!
Make fun of us for our many idiosyncracies — fine. But to slaughter our integrity like that, especially of our medical professionals, is just foul. I’m one with all the Filipino nurses, doctors, medical practitioners not just in America but all over the world in condemning the show’s producers and writers for this unfortunate show of insensitivity and discrimination.
ABC Studios and the show’s producers have just issued a statement:
“We offer our sincere apologies for any offense caused by the brief reference in the season premiere. There was no intent to disparage the integrity of any aspect of the medical community in the Philippines.“
REALLY NOW! And I quote…
“Okay, before we go any further, can I check those diplomas? Because I would just like to make sure they are not from some med school in the Philippines.” – Susan (Teri Hatcher’s character on DH)
