I was wondering about something and thought I should share it on the blogosphere. The recent (minor) fuss about actor Neil Patrick Harris being gay made me realize something about childhood TV shows and memories. One of my friends remembered the show Doogie Howser, MD, and he considers it a decisive factor in his having wanted, at some point, to become a doctor. To most others, the show rang no bells. How many of you remember this show? How about other shows that “shaped your minds” or had an effect on you? I can easily think of Quantum Leap, Mission Impossible, and Sliders. How about Road to Avonlea with Felicity King?
