I thought this might just be the worst disease-of-the-week movie ever, but I was wrong. There's a worse one the next night. Here, Cheryl Ladd plays a nurse who drinks and drugs herself to the brink, almost killing herself and a couple of patients. "They give us awesome responsibility and no power. They hand us a human life and say, Take care of it,' " Ladd moans. Another nurse advises: "Take a Valium." Ladd says: "I did." And the friend advises: "Take another." Or watch this show—the effect is the same.
