Show Summary

Ted Danson (Cheers) stars as Dr. John Becker, a dedicated and talented physician with a gruff exterior. Unfortunately, his interior isn't warm and fuzzy either. While he offend those around him who try to get close, he's extremely dedicated to his medical practice in the Bronx where he always went the extra mile to help those in need.

Becker looked at the world around him and saw a society gone mad, full of incongruities and had no problem about saying anything that came to his mind. Becker often unleashed his views at the local diner run by Reggie (Terry Farrell, Star Trek Deep Space Nine). Jake (Alex Desert, The Heights) is the blind proprietor of the local newsstand. He's used to John and did his best to explain the "Becker phenomenon" to others, including Bob (Saverio Guerra, Temporarily Yours).

His head nurse, Margaret (Hattie Winston, Homefront), made order out of his chaotic office and deals with both Becker and Linda (Shawnee Smith, Arsenio.moreless

  • Some things about the TV Show Becker....

    9.0
    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"?

    8.0
    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
  • doctor help this show is good

    9.0
    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
