Make sure to save the date with this new doctor in the house. He will fill your prescription with laugher and giggles. Who does not like a good comedy series on cold Friday night? But first let me introduce ”DR. KEN” as well as hilarious videos from the first episode.
Dr. Ken is a cranky but lovable HMO doctor trying to juggle medicine and parenting who realizes that even when he’s right, his unorthodox approach is often wrong. Allison, his wife and a therapist, helps keep him in check while sharing responsibilities their two kids: Dave, their youngest, who keeps life interesting with his quirky attitude, and their teenage daughter, Molly, who keeps them on their toes. Meanwhile at the clinic, Ken’s staff includes his loyal, but oh-so-irritating staff, including a sharp tongued receptionist; a faithful nurse who is a confidante and partner-in-crime; a sweet, naïve resident who’s relentless optimism and quest for romance are a constant source of curiosity and irritation; and his nemesis, the hospital administrator, who never misses a chance to put the screws to Ken and his staff.
“Dr. Ken” stars Ken Jeong as Dr. Ken, Suzy Nakamura as Allison, Tisha Campbell Martin as Damona, Jonathan Slavin as Clark, Kate Simses as Julie, Albert Tsai as Dave, Krista Marie Yu as Molly, and Dave Foley as Pat.
In the first episode, Ken is stressed out at work over his “whining, complaining” patients so he needs a therapy session with Allison; while back at home, Ken is nervous about Molly’s driving test – “What if she doesn’t fail!”
I have watched several videos of ”DR. KEN” ‘s season premiere and I loved the one about teenagers. I can relate to it as my son is in his teen years and some days, I just want to hide in a closet. I giggled all the way when I watched this video. Make sure to watch it for a good laugh.
