The Complete Series
Multiple Emmy Award winner Ted Danson (“Cheers”) stars in the fan-favourite series BECKER, now available in a newly packaged complete series collection from Paramount Home DVD.
The comedy follows Dr. John Becker (Danson), a dedicated and talented physician who’s extremely devoted to his Bronx medical practice. However, because Dr. Becker looks at the world around him and sees a society gone mad, he has no qualms about saying anything that comes to his mind – anything. Becker often unleashes his views on his friends: Jake (Alex Désert), the blind proprietor of the local newsstand; Bob (Saverio Guerra), the annoying but somehow likable super of Becker’s apartment building; Margaret (Hattie Winston), his head nurse; and Linda (Shawnee Smith), his slightly ditzy nurse’s aide. He also has to deal with his neighbour – and on-again, off-again love interest – Chris (Nancy Travis). Even though he seems to be insulting them at every turn, the people in his life persist in trying to connect with him to find the nice they know is in there somewhere.
Becker ran from 1998 until 2004, back in the days when sitcoms were plentiful and everywhere. I miss the days of good quality sitcoms like Becker. I’ve been a fan of Ted Danson since Cheers, and I enjoyed watching this character pushing the envelope and tackling the tough issues that were not always shows on TV in years past. Becker employed a talented cast of actors who worked well together, and I felt a connection with them.
This was also one of my Dad’s favourite shows of all-time. Certain shows bring back those memories of my Dad, either watching TV with him or talking about what happened on the last episode. It may seem silly to some, but TV and movies were bonding moments for my Dad and I, and the shows we watched together in the late 90s/early to mid 2000s are special to me and take me back to the times before my Dad was sick.
Featuring all 129 episodes of the hilarious show, BECKER: THE COMPLETE SERIES DVD collection also features interviews with the cast and a gag reel.
Run time: Approx. 46 hours, 9 minutes
