While he offend those around him who try to get close, he's extremely dedicated to his medical practice in the Bronx where he always went the extra mile to help those in need.Becker looked at the world around him and saw a society gone mad, full of incongruities and had no problem about saying anything that came to his mind. Becker often unleashed his views at the local diner run by Reggie (Terry Farrell, Star Trek Deep Space Nine). Jake (Alex Desert, The Heights) is the blind proprietor of the local newsstand.

    There seems to be little here in the way of memorable characters outside of Danson's angry doctor, and even his misanthropic outlook (leavened, of course, by a heart, which is mandatory in formulaic comedy) gets tiring. Still, when he's on, Danson is good.
