doctor help this show is good
I haven't seen this show in years, but i remember it being great. Maybe I might change my mind the next time i see it but who knows the next time ill see this on TV. I remember liking that blind black guy i think his name was Jake, and i also liked that greasy Italian guy Bob, and of course i liked the main character Becker, he was an A hole just like my old doctor and probably like most other peoples doctors, probably one of the reasons this show was a hit, finally 100 words no more rambling.moreless
Some things about the TV Show Becker....
Being from the Bronx and actually being in that office made this a personal TV Show. I loved it. And still watch it on from time to time. I would have given the show a 10 however there were a few things I didn't like. Main thing was Hatty Wilson part as a Christian. They made her a Hypocrite. And her parts were not funny. Like when Becker told her that He found Santa under the tree unwrapping his wife. Hatty over laughed. It wasn't that funny and I thought either her performance wasn't good or poorly written for her. There was a few other quirky moments in the show that needed work. But over all it was well written. I know they had a problem with Reggie, sadly she was a huge part of the shows success and they should have listened to her instead they didn't and she left the show. All they had to do was give a little more money and royalties. That's what I read. I think that Reggie replacement Chris was OK but didn't come close to Reggie. And it was only good if you totally looked at her as someone totally different but not as a replacement for Reggie. Reggie was beautiful and funny. The other thing was that Jake was a little to arrogant at times. Most blind people are humble people. And the relationship with the Blind woman didn't need to be in the show if she was going to judge Jake for being black and she can't even see that made for stupid writing. At least I think it did. Anyways the show was a success and very funny and I wish it was still on the air. Until then take care.moreless
I just started watching this show just a year ago, and I simply love it. My wife gave me the DVD Collection of this show as a birthday gift which she purchased at MemorylaneDVD .com and since then I got hooked with this show. I didn't knew this kind of show ever existed! Ted Danson is magnificent as the main character, and I think he is refreshingly hilarious and talented actor. Shawnee Smith also makes a awesome idealist in portraying the character Linda. BECKER would be simply described as keen humor, smart and idealistic lessons in life which are very realistic and, perfect storylines, need I say more?!moreless
Can you say "sarcasm"?
This show is one of the most bitter and sarcastic shows on TV. So many great one liners and comebacks. Not to mention all of the killer irony. This is a series that I have just been getting into lately, biut is is seriusly amazing. I LOVE Shawnee Smith; and her character on here is no exception. I actualy had no idea that she was on this show until I started watching, and I was really surprised, because I was mainlt familiar to her work in the Saw series. This show is great, and comes with tons of great comebacks and quotes. Surprisingly not as popular as it should be though.moreless
I watch it...but don't know why...
I tend to watch this show once a day, because it is on so dang much on all the channels...but i don't know why. It really is not that funny, sure, it has it's moments, but even the worst shows do...have you ever seen Yes, Dear?
Sure, Ted could carry any show, i just believe that, but this one just got to be too much...i don't really know why it was canceled, it did well...but then again, i don't know why it did well...
If you like run of the mill, middle of the road shows, go ahead watch and enjoy.moreless
Becker's a smoker? Since when?
I love this show, and wish I'd started watching it sooner.
But I was very disappointed to see Becker smoking in a recent Christmas episode. What kind of message is that to send? It didn't even have a point; there was no dialog to go along with it. He just lit up (in a restaurant, ew!) and started puffing away. Very, very strange.
One of TV's best ever. I still watch daily on WGN and Universal HD. I am in search of aDVD set!
The scripts wrer incredible, considering only three regular sets. Reminds of another Danson was in. You get to know the entite cast, personally. I trully believe this will be one of those to always on TV somewhere each and everyday. It seemed to so real. All of the characters certainly had their own personality. And just when you thought you had seen it all, here comes Chris.This happens to one of TV shows that I never watched during it's regular broadcasts. I only became addicted to it after syndication. Maybe because of fans like me is one of the true reasons that we lost it far to early. Come Ted Danson, I know that you have a couple more left!moreless
I have to say that a show like Becker is underrated. It had some funny bits here and there that were actually original bits. I liked the characters and the storylines most of the time. But I thought that the last couple seasons were a bit tired and unoriginal. I liked the chemistry in the show, but it seemed like it was lost after certain actors and actresses left, such as Teri Farrell. I think for the most part the show did a decent job of staying to script and not trying to emulate other sitcoms. Overall, this show was quite decent. Thank you.moreless
Becker was a great show that unfortunately not many people seem to understand. At a passing glance, the show seemed like a pretty lame idea, but if you really pay attention. The show is wonderfully written and the cast really plays well off of each other.
To fully understand this show, I think you have to be a little more open minded. The idea of this show and how it revolves around a complaining doctor doesn't seem like much of a show, but I urge anyone who dismissed it to give it another chance. It has some really great writing and also deals with some moral issues as well. Deep down, Becker is a good person who cares about people, especially the ones that are closest to him.
If you like Everybody Loves Raymond, Seinfeld, Wings, Fraiser, etc., then I think you would like this show too.
This is a great sitcom that deserves to be watched. One of my all-time favorites.moreless
