Hangin' In

Show Summary

Set in Toronto's fictional "Clark Street Counselling Centre", the series focused around manager Kate Brown and counselor Michael DeFalco plus a rather gruff older woman named Doris Webster who manned the front desk. As one would expect, there were many stories dealing with troubled youth who came to the center needing help. The series lasted for four or five six-to-nine episode seasons on the Canadian Broadcasting Channel in Canada with limited syndication in the USA.

  • Two counselors and a crotchety receptionist with one-liners handle and counsel young adults and people with emotional problems with comedic results.

    I recall this show, but with limited memories. I watched it during the day's block of comedies and liked it enough I kept tuning in. It starred an ensemble of three people and was set in a social services office; the comedy rotated around their clientele of visitors. In one episode, Michael treated his superstitious patient with a book of superstitions; she got so tired following everything in the book that that she was no longer superstitious. In another, he fell attracted to the girl he was helping and debated asking her out by looking to Kate for advice. In another, Doris tried to boost a girl's confidence by switching her award winning recipe for the girl's donation to the contest so she would win and feel better, but she won anyway with the girl's recipe! The humor was like "Newhart," based on one-dimensional eccentric characters and had brief appearances by up-and-coming Canadian actors like Geraint Wyn Davies and a young child-actor named Eric McCormack.moreless
