Great show
6 February 2001 | by delpinoSee all my reviews

This American series influenced me quite a lot, Doogie Howsers best friend is called Vinnie Delpino. I liked his character so much, that i took over his nickname and now call myself in the internet "delpino".

"Doogie Howser" is one of my favourite series. I don't know why, maybe because I can see myself in Doogie and Vinnie, or its the atmosphere it has.

It also sends out a positive message, there is no violence or explicit sex. Its funny, touching, and you can learn something. At the end of each episode Doogie writes a small note into his diary about what he learnt.

I also like the music of the series.
