Storyline

This FOX comedy show starred Herman, a young fact checker. Whenever Herman had a thought, various conflicting aspects of his psyche were personified and interacted in a cluttered, attic-like room, meant to represent his mind. Predictably, the sophomoric humor was not subtle. Written by Tad Dibbern <DIBBERN_D@a1.mscf.upenn.edu>

The high point of Fox's Experimental phase
19 July 2000 | by (Hollywood, ca) – See all my reviews

When the Fox Network went on the air, it seemed like it was trying to attract viewers with "something different". The result was shows like "Herman's Head".

Although it featured a "Dobie Gillis" like situation--an ambitious bombshell who was "unattainable" and an "ordinary" girl who was sweet, but really loved him, this show added something way out of the ordinary: A "Greek chorus" that revealed his "true" thoughts, instead of Herman giving asides to the camera.

A nice touch was including in the chorus a female to give his "feminine" side.

This nice touch pulled this rather ordinary sitcom out of the muck and gave it a nice spin that worked most of the time.

Its too bad Fox did not keep up this phase, because I believe television would have been much the better for it.
