Bernie Cates requests the services of the most absent-minded waiter he's ever seen, who pours water before setting the glasses, endlessly repeats questions, brings wrong orders, and ruins everything- but the bill.
Joe Bogert was an older, kind-hearted New York City general practitioner who genuinely cared about his patients--whether or not they could afford to pay him. While loving his longtime wife Annie and married daughter Laurie, tossing mean-spirited barbs at his fussy son-in-law Fred and hanging out with pals Happy and Ben, Joe got involved with the lives of his patients the old-fashioned way. Later Joe started seeing patients at the Westside Clinic, dumped his family and began spending more time with the wacky clinic employees. Written by

Though this doesn't seem to be the logical choice of a 11 year old boy, I remember catching the series while it was on the air. The first batch of shows in 1975, with Doc's office featured in the basement ground floor of his townhouse, were the better of the series. For some reason I still recall the episode with Moosie Drier and the wonderful interaction Hughes had with the child actor. Like others, my interest faded when the focus of the series moved from the home office to the clinic. Too bad this series didn't do more for Hughes, as there must have been something to his performance to keep a young boy such as myself coming back. His performance in Doc Hollywood reminded me of his role in Doc.
