    A gaspingly funny show that you ought to watch early and often.
  2. 70
    The Practice should have been this much fun.
  3. 63
    A show with a promising premise that could be a winner.
  4. 40
    The marriage of opposites is a simplistic and overused premise for a TV series, and ''Head Cases" doesn't travel very far beyond it.
  5. Had "Boston Legal" not perfected the art of office insanity, "Head Cases" ... actually, nope, can't even say it would have a shot in that circumstance.
  6. The show is neither funny enough to be a comedy nor dramatic enough to be an engaging drama.
  7. 0
    Most of the shows now on network television, whether repugnant or tolerable or actually worthwhile, are competently and professionally directed, edited and photographed, but "Head Cases" is a mess even as a piece of storytelling.

    This was a nice light change from all the blood, gore and rape of the overload of violence on TV.
