Throwback Thursday-Doogie Howser, M.D. (1989-1993)

Being a teenager is hard enough. But adding something else to that plate makes life twice as hard and twice as interesting.

Doogie Howser, M.D. was on the air from 1989-1993. Doogie Howser (Neil Patrick Harris) is much more than the average teenage boy. He has the academic intellect of someone far older than he. This leads him to an early career in medicine. While delving in the adult world of medicine, he is also dealing with the emotional pitfalls of being a teenager.

This show, as I remember it, was interesting. The basic premise of the program is a fish out of water story meets a coming of age tale. Though the program is very much a part of its time, there is also a universal quality to the narrative.

Do I recommend it? I am leaning toward yes.
