    I think this is a new genre that they're all sort of working their way through it and haven't got all the kinks worked out yet but it's a genre that works for me.

    Touches You

    Exactly the movie you think it is, but not the movie you want it to be.

    I only recently saw this show for the first time when Antenna TV started to show it in reruns. After a few times, I was eventually able to get past the opening theme song, which sounds a lot like a generic ring-tone on a cheap cell phone.Once past that hurdle, I watched an episode. I thought at first, due to the raving reviews, that maybe it was just a bad episode. So I tried to watch it again.I guess the problem for me is "suspension of disbelief" which is critical for enjoying any play, movie or TV show. I find it impossible to suspend disbelief and enjoy this show. First of all is the premise that some young skinny kid is accepted as a doctor in a hospital. It might be more believable if at least the patients were in disbelief, or at least pretended to be a bit surprised.But even if that were the case, there's Max Casella playing the role of "Vinnie Delpino". I was born and raised in New Jersey. Maybe people that aren't from the area can buy into his extremely fake Italian-American accent, but when if you grew up here, you too would also be a little sickened by how extremely fake he sounds. Turns out, Max Casella is from Washington DC. So it's no wonder his accent sounds almost like a stereotyped mockery of New Jersey Italians.For this reason alone, his "Vinnie" character is extremely annoying. And "Vinnie"? Really? Why not go for the gold and use the name "Antney"? I can see how the people who wrote and directed this abomination would completely miss the fact that "Vinnie" is like nails on a chalkboard every time he appears. They live in California and most likely think people from New Jersey actually say "New Joisey". Truth is, they don't. In fact, I've yet to meet somebody who says "Fah get abowt it". And so far the only person from New Jersey I know of that says "How ya doin?" is Wendy Williams.Sorry to go against all the positive accolades of the other reviews, but this show is not unlike smelling fresh vomit in that it makes you want to vomit too.

    Doogie Howser, M.D. is an American comedy-drama television series that ran for four seasons at ABC.It stars Neil Patrick Harris in the title role together with Max Casella,Belinda Montgomery,Lawrence Pressman,Mitchell Anderson,Kathryn Layng,Lisa Dean Ryan,Lucy Boryer, Markus Redmond and James B. Sikking. This 97-episode TV series showed the coming of age of a teen-age genius in Doogie Howser,who became a board certified surgeon when he was sixteen years old. At such a tender age,he tries to balance work and life as well as learning about the real world as he grows into maturity.He gets those lesson from his parents,his bestfriend Vinnie and his girlfriend,Wanda.We witness his growth into maturity during its four year run on air.This is definitely one of the best shows during the 90's. No question about it.It manages to combine humor and drama in good way that keeps the viewer interested and entertained.Despite the fact that it maybe somewhat melodramatic in a few episodes,it still provides numerous lessons about life and the real world.Credit also should be given to Neil Patrick Harris and Max Cassella as Doogie and Vinnie respectively as they managed to carry the show during its entire run.Despite the fact that the show was ended abruptly,the episodes are definitely memorable and still worth watching at present time.

    I suppose it must be different when you first watched this, but I only started watching this in 2013 when there were suddenly a few cultural references to Doogie Howser on TV and in the movies.It was fun watching it at first - a boy genius who is a doctor. It's a show about growing up pains, with the quirk that the growing boy is smarter than his father and is an accomplished and respected doctor. I enjoyed the episodes where he is saving lives and learning adult perspectives in a medical setting, but the normal growing pains part are too normal to be interesting. I actually liked Vinny better as the normal kid with the genius friend - if you think it is easy being a genius, try being his friend!By the second half of the second season, the show did not interest me as much as it initially did. I would have given it a 5, but thought 6 was more appropriate for the excellent first season.

    i love this show, even though i was born after it ended, and now its only on at two a.m. but i still love it!the plot is great because it combines a normal teenage life with the life of a hospital worker, both lines sticking extremely close to the truth.oh, and of course, i love the characters! my favorite is Vinnie Delpino, Doogie's best friend and neighbor. he is the more typical teen, who is obsessed with girls, sex, and other more normal... hobbies, i guess? he brings a sense of balance to Doogie's hectic life, though he succeeds at getting the both of them in trouble on numerous occasions.i was disappointed how the last season came to a end the way it did, but otherwise, i give this series a 10. *Racetrack*(abby)
