A teenaged genius deals with the usual problems of growing up: having a girlfriend, going to parties, hanging out with his best friend, all of this on top of being a licensed physician in a difficult residency program.Written by
This could have been an outstanding show had it not been designed to be some sort of "example" of how to still live the normal society expected lifestyle while still being a genius.
A kid with this level of mind would not function at home with parents telling him what to do. He was able to work as a doctor with a healthy income and should have left home soon as he started working as a doctor. It was a joke seeing his parents trying to help guide his life. Most parents suck with that part of the job in the first place. Parents always try and hold their kids back based on their own generational and society expectations from 30 years ago when they were kids. Parents have no damn clue how to raise kids in the current time period. Doogie would have better off on his own, but they just had to find a way to restrain him and make him some society expected kid who obeyed his parents and restrained his lifestyle even though he was wealthy and extremely capable of handling his own life. They had him make all the normal mistakes any kid would make when we know that wouldn't be the case being he is above his years in his thought process.
The show just had too much sugar, not enough spice.
