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>

Trivia

One of the show's writers used to hang out on a BBS forum for Fox shows when this was still on the air. He said that if the show had survived into a fourth season, there was going to be a second set of head characters introduced, this time for the "Heddy" character. This obviously never happened, as the show was canceled after its third season. See more »

A great show,and very unique.
28 June 2003 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

An excellent comedy that I watched religiously.I think I saw every episode.The tension between Heddy and Herman was so thick.....and the occasional interruption by know it all Bracken was a good "break".The ever so Lisa Simpson-ish Louise was a very unique charmer,in her own way....but those 4 people in Hermans Head.....you always looked forward to seeing them pop up...There has been no program like it....before or after.The opening segment was much better in the early episodes,it was more an upbeat,alive music...sorta got you jumping..
