A pretty good show based on a very young Dr. that has his licence at a very young age because he is brilliant and got through school very quickly. Neil Patrick Harris had the starring role as Douglas "Doogie" Howser. He was fantastic and perfect for this role. His best friend was Max Casella as Vinnie Delpino. Max can now be seen on "The Sopranos". The rest of the cast was pretty good. They included Belinda Montgomery as Katherine O'Brien Howser, Robyn Lively as Michele Faber, Kathryn Layng as Nurse Curly Spaulding, Lucy Boryer as Janine Stewart, Lisa Dean Ryan as Wanda Plenn,
Mitchell Anderson as Dr. Jack McGuire, James Sikking as Dr. David Howser, Lawrence Pressman as Dr. Benjamin Canfield and Darkus Redmond as Raymond Alexander. the show alway ended with Doogie type notes on his computer. The girls from sex and the city stole this a few years later for their show.
