The best TV show in CBS' Witness Protection Program, 7 October 2003
Author: pentax12101

CBS has been the number three network for a long time and a major reason for that is their poor use of excellent shows. Doctor, Doctor is a prime example of that. This sitcom was hidden at 10 o'clock on (I think) wednesday night after a full night of bad programming. This was however the funniest sitcom ever. Where shows like Friends entertain me and make me laugh out loud, this was the only show to ever make me laugh so hard that tears ran down my face. This show was taken off the air after only a short time in CBS' Witness Protection Program, so I never saw a rerun of any of the episodes, but I can still remember whole scenes. Matt Frewer came to do this show shortly after the Max Headroom craze he started and this was where his comedic skill really showed through. This show will never be on DVD and I will never get to see any of these episodes again, because the same genius that took this show off the air has thrown these tapes all the way to the back of the vault, where they will never be found; but I will never forget the scene where Matt Frewer's character was on the news explaining what happens in an accident that causes whiplash. He had this little girls' doll and was showing how the accident makes the head go back and then forward which is what causes the injury. The thing is that the dolls head came off in his hand. With a news anchor sitting next to him wondering how to get him to just shut up and the cameras on him he proceeded to try to put the head back on and "professionally" finish his segment. It didn't work. The next segment (when I finally was able to control my laughing) showed him in his office with the doll trying to figure out how to put the head back on and obviously feeling like an idiot because of what he had done on live TV. He then gets too frustrated with the doll and drops the head on the table, and next he uses the doll to kick the head off the other side of the table. It is of course impossible to explain a visual joke well, but the tears started coming down again.

I'm remembering all of this after seeing this scene once 14 years ago. It says something either about the quality of the show or the state of my mind. I think it's the show. My dream DVD list includes this series, but I guess I'll only keep the part that's in my head.
