Storyline

A comedy about a wealthy plastic surgeon living with his family in Sherman Oaks, California. Dr. Baker, the plastic surgeon and his family are the subject of a documentary being made by a young filmmaker who has moved in with them and tapes their every move. The doctor's wife, a yoga loving, new ager; his daughter, the slutty bimbo; his son who thinks he's black, even though he's not; and his other son who is an NRA card carrying Republican. The show follows their superficial lives as the documentary filmmaker tapes all of it with hilarious results. Written by Joshua Bozeman <JBoze3131@aol.com>

A terrific comedy....
17 December 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was cleaning out old VHS tapes in my storage the other day and came across some tapes I made of the 96' season of this show. After watching a few of the episodes I had taped, and remembering episodes I had seen, I realized what a rare gem this show was for it's time. This was before The Sopranos, Six Feet Under, Sex In The City, etc., etc.. High caliber shows on the pay channels are becoming more and more commonplace now-days, but Sherman Oaks had few competitors at it's time. (At least, none that I remember.) Everyone was so well cast in this series, with the possible exception of Dr. Baker's ditzy daughter. Who was really only eye-candy anyways, so was no big deal. Jason Behr was awesome as Dr. Baker's "wigger" son, and it was really cool seeing Peter Billingsley all grown-up and holding his own in a comedic role. Nick Toth was great as the harried Dr Baker, and Phyllis Katz was Dr Baker's spendaholic, angry wife. It would be great to see all 3 seasons of this show on DVD, but if you can find it in VHS form on the internet, I highly recommend it.
