Did You Know?


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.

"Las Vegas" this ain't
9 October 2004 | by See all my reviews

"Dr. Vegas" is a show that ultimately plays second fiddle to "Las Vegas" (in itself a "Love Boat"/"Baywatch" knockoff). There are good actors like Joe Pantoliano and Tom Sizemore, an intriguing character and story line, and a great location. But this isn't as daring or as challenging as it wants to be. Unfortunately, it really does feel like it's second fiddle to "Las Vegas", which did come first.

Here are some things I've noticed in watching:

Rob Lowe is affable enough to play the lead. He should've stuck with "The West Wing". "The Lyon's Den" and "Salem's Lot" flopped.

Again, the cast. Had Joe Pantoliano not been in it, then this show would go downhill fast.

Tom Sizemore, despite his recent court troubles, is a welcome presence. Although it seems like his character isn't fleshed out as strongly as it should be.

The show doesn't maneuver the nifty camera and editing tricks "Las Vegas" pulled.

This is a "Baywatch" esque show that is funny and dramatic.

All in all, I would watch this show out of curiosity, but it's not enough to warrant a second viewing. But this show hasn't proved itself yet so only time will tell if it has legs.
