Favorites Episodes: Doogie Howser, M.D.

by Amy K. Bredemeyer

This is turning out to be a really fun series to write. I've even started writing my Frasier one, which won't be posted for several weeks, as I'm currently in Season 8 of making my way through from start to finish. Today, I chose Doogie Howser, M.D. to write about, which is intriguing to me because I didn't see it in first-run at all. I watched the entire series on Hulu during the week after my surgery in 2008. I'm kinda glad I waited to watch it, since I have such admiration for Neil Patrick Harris after his work in Assassins, How I Met Your Mother, and Dr. Horrible, for starters.

I chose today to do this specific entry because I "called" NPH last night during the Super Bowl. Twice. Yes, I got a Barney Stinson message, and I allegedly have a date with him at 3:45am on Monday, October 12th, 2016 at MacLaren's. I have no idea how many people called in, and I do look forward to a joke about it showing up on tonight's How I Met Your Mother (even though it's apparently a Valentine's Day episode). It was a fun little thing to do, and very Barney, haha.

Anyway, back to Doogie. Season 4 is easily my favorite, even if it contains those really strange literary/historical episodes that are just plain weird. The pilot episode is an interesting start, as is the premise of a child prodigy doctor who eventually ends up wondering if medicine was actually his calling. Here we go:

Season 1: Use a Slurpy. Go to Jail. Doogie and Vinnie are held hostage in a convenience store. Link to Hulu ep.

Season 2: Car Wars. Doogie wants to buy a '57 Chevy, but his dad doesn't think its a good idea. Link to Hulu ep.

Season 3: Doogstruck. Vinnie and Doogie are driving through the desert to visit Wanda. But the car breaks down and Doogie meets a new woman. Link to Hulu ep.

Season 4: Doogie Doesn't Live Here Anymore. Doogie moves into an old, crappy loft instead of a nice condo. Vinnie's parents are divorcing. Link to Hulu ep.
