Becker > Wiki


This TV sitcom offers a forum for the brash and belligerent Bronx Becker (Ted Danson), an opinionated doctor who not only holds forth in his office but also in the local diner run by Regina Costa, aka Reggie (Terry Farrell) where his pessimistic rant ranges over such topics as talkshows, "white trash," used cars, and "parasitic car salesmen." "If you care about your wife and kids," Becker tells one overweight patient, "I want you to remember this one word: salad." But there's also a soft side to Dr. John Becker, as revealed in his treatment of an HIV-positive boy, M.J. Johnson (Robert Bailey Jr.). Filmed in Los Angeles, the series premiered November 2, 1998 on CBS. ~ Bhob Stewart, All Movie Guide

God, I miss this show so much. Becker may be an unethical douche, but he has his moments of clarity.
