Johnny and Dr. Jackson discuss the medical accuracy of the first
two episodes of Cobra Kai Season Three, talking about spinal cord
injuries, blood in your urine, and what happens when a med student
misplaces their white coat and badge.
Doctors talk about what Hollywood gets right and wrong about medicine and how the body works. Each week we discuss how a film or episode of television depicts illnesses, injuries, and the lives of medical professionals.
As we wrap up each episode, the film or show being discussed is graded for its medical accuracy in comparison to 2010’s The Human Centipede, which marketed itself as “100% medically accurate.” Rian Johnson’s Knives Out, for example, is considered “140% medically accurate” when compared to The Human Centipede. Luc Besson’s Lucy, meanwhile, was awarded a 10%. Midsommar earned our highest rank yet, at 400% - which means it's roughly four times more medically accurate than The Human Centipede.
New episodes Tuesdays!
