It's really hard for me to pick a favorite...But if I had to, I'd say Ep 22: Cross talk, Ep 21: Sight Unseen, and Ep 15: All the Rage.
I just hope they continue to release the rest of the seasons..."
Deep down inside he has a heart.

"In this funny series we continue to follow Dr. John Becker as he continues to bitch and moan about everything but deep down inside he has a heart.
We get the second season on dvd containing all 24 episodes Staring the funny as always Ted Danson(tv's Cheers)and we see him in his daily life from being a doctor, eating at his favorite diner and other situations while he hates life and everything all around him.
John has two assistants, Magaret (Hattie Winston) the one who makes sure everything is in order and make sure becker lands on his feet and the incapable Linda (Shawnee Smith) who is only kept cause no one else can stand Becker and vice versa.
Becker's favorite Diner is run by Reggie (Terry Ferrell) who loaths and sometimes is attracted to.
This second season is hillarious and comes HIGHLY RECOMENDED!"
Gotta Love Becker!

"Ted Danson is brilliant as the edgey Dr. Becker, who would rather rant and rave about EVERYTHING in his world than see the good all around him. Ya just gotta love Becker.... he's all the crabby people in your life rolled into one character and you can laugh yourself silly as you listen to his continual tirades..... but, then there are those endearing moments when he lets his softer side show, but only when no one else is looking but the audience.... just brilliantly portrayed by Danson and kudos to all the rest of the cast too!"
Just love it!
