|Ted Danson||Dr. John Becker|
|Terry Farrell||Regina "Reggie" Kostas|
Ted Danson is hilarious as John Becker, the grumpy, penny-pinching doctor with a well-hidden heart of gold. If you are a Becker fan, you will chuckle at the mention of some of the episodes contained in this newest release. If this is your first introduction to the crusty-but-loveable doctor, you may become a Becker fan! Season Three episodes include milestones in the series: annoying but loveable Bob (Saverio Guerra) becomes the Building Super for Becker's apartment building. Medical Secretary Linda (Shawnee Smith) arranges an unforgettable cruise for Becker. Nurse Margaret (Hattie Winston) gets a long-overdue raise, amid great confusion caused by (who else?) Linda. Reggie (Terry Farrell), the model-turned-frycook continues her date-a-loser streak of luck while lobbing counter-insults to Becker. Jake (Alex Desert), Becker's best friend, provides his usual good-natured balance to the crankiness. Becker's long-lost love, Megan (Jaclyn Smith), resurfaces and causes hilarious calamity in two episodes. The season closes with a three-part episode in which suspense mingles with biting comedy as Becker is sued for malpractice. Guest stars of note are Mariel Hemmingway and Kenneth Mars. If most Becker fans are like me, they are eagerly awaiting Season 4!
and I'm waiting for the last two seasons to come out. It's demented but funny, and we can all use more laughter in our lives.
