  • Starring: Michael Boatman
  • Summary: Based on the book Home Before Morning, this acclaimed (but low-rated) Vietnam War drama was set mainly at an Army hospital near the conflict and focused on the women impacted by the fighting, including nurses at the hospital, USO workers, and local Vietnamese citizens. The series picked up numerous awards and nominations over its four seasons, including five Emmy wins (with two going to star Dana Delany). This final season was interrupted by a long hiatus (and eventual cancelation). Expand
