Becker, on CBS

This was about a doctor named John Becker (Ted Danson), who hates pretty much everything and everyone. He runs a small clinic, with a couple of assistants: a nurse named Margaret Wyborn (Hattie Winston), and a nurse's aide, Linda (Shawnee Smith). But mostly we see him hanging out at a little diner, run by a woman named Reggie Kostas (Terry Farrell), and within the diner there's a newsstand, run by a blind guy named Jake Malinak (Alex Désert). They're both sorta friends of Becker's, though of course he's always very grumpy and doesn't get along well with them... but better than he does most people, anyway. There's also a kind of weasly guy named Bob (who refers to himself in the third person), who Becker and everyone especially dislikes, but he comes into the diner a lot, so... he's sort of part of their circle, I guess. And he's not all bad. Exactly. He's pretty funny, anyway.

In later seasons, there was a character named Chris Connor (Nancy Travis). She eventually started a relationship with Becker, but by this point I wasn't watching the series that much anymore. And I'm not sure what else to say. The show was funny and kind of quirky, I guess. ...That's all.
