You shoudn’t laugh. You feel yourself verging toward a laugh. You stifle it. You suppress it. But then you can’t help it. You have to laugh. You can’t stop yourself.
There’s a show where you can’t help yourself. You have to laugh. You shouldn’t laugh about a little kid who is terrified and tormented by a doctor dressed as a clown. Doctors are supposed to be calm and caring. Yet on Children’s Hospital the doctors are a breed unto themselves. The Hippocratic Oath? No, I’m sure these dcotors don”t have the foggiest notion about what the oath is. Not sure these guys and gals even went medical school…come to think of it.
[Adult Swim]’s Children’s Hospital has been called “brilliant.” The courageous men and women of Childrens Hospital are known as “brilliant, egotistical, nymphomaniacal doctors.” But saving lives is what they do…whether the patients like it or not. This group of doctors is led by resident clown doctor Blake Downs — Rob Corddry. These doctors do it all “disrobe, do Ecstasy, donate organs (except for the important one), or set up digs in a hospital bathroom.”
The creative mind behind the show is Corddry (The Daily Show with Jon Stewart). The show starts series regulars Malin Akerman (27 Dresses), Lake Bell (Boston Legal), Erinn Hayes (Parenthood), Rob Huebel (The Descendants), Ken Marino (Party Down), Megan Mullally (Will & Grace), and Henry Winkler (Happy Days). As well as a host of celebrity guest stars.
Haven’t caught the show yet? Never fear you can grab the DVD and watch all 14 Season Three episodes of this “outlandishly incorrect, medically dope and seriously short series” — Children’s Hospital.
You can buy the DVD on amazon for around $30. Find the 3rd Season of Children’s Hospital on DVD at WBShop.
