Storyline

Trivia

In his memoir Love Life, Rob Lowe says that he lobbied for Tom Sizemore to be cast as Vic Moore despite his reputation for erratic behavior and drug issues. However, despite Lowe vouching for him (and paying a portion of Sizemore's salary out of his own pocket), Sizemore did prove to be unreliable in the role. In the book, Lowe recounts getting a phone call from Sizemore at 3:45 a.m. in which he started screaming and wailing about how his girlfriend had been decapitated, parts of her were pitched in a dumpster, and he was currently searching for her missing torso - and that was why he would be unable to make it to that day's shoot. Lowe recognized it as an excuse for skipping work rather than an actual sign that any girlfriend of Sizemore's really had met a grisly and partitioned end, hung up, and went back to sleep.

I liked this show and one of my favorite TV-shows of 2004!
29 December 2004 | by (Kansas City, MO) – See all my reviews

I think Dr. Vegas is a really good show! Especially since the show has Rob Lowe and Joe Pantoliano and they make a really good team! Rob Lowe was also one of NBC's hit shows "The West Wing" and Joe Pantoliano was on a few drama shows himself like HBO's "The Sopranos" and both Rob Lowe and Joe Pantoliano have also been on local network drama shows that only lasted one season. The show takes place in Las Vegas about a guy named Billy Grant who attends to the round-the-clock medical needs of guests, employees and their families amid the lures of Sin City. The doctor's always in when it comes to catering to the often frivolous medical requests of his good friend and boss, Tommy Danko the hotel's general manager. Tommy's priority is the well-being of his high rollers and the casino's bottom line, while Billy's committed to upholding the Hippocratic Oath, often putting them at odds. This show premiered on CBS September 2004 and then after airing only 5 episodes CBS immediately put on hiatus and then CBS just decided to pull the plug on this good show with two good actors like Rob Lowe and Joe Pantoliano! Damn CBS! This show would have better off if it was on TNT because that network knows drama. But even though this show didn't last really long I still liked it.

User Rating: 9/10

BOTTOM LINE: THIS SHOW SHOULD HAVE GONE LONGER ESPECIALLY IF IT IS A SHOW WITH ROB LOWE AND JOE PANTOLIANO!
