In all my life, and from among the too-many-to-count hours I've watched television, very few shows have resulted in a many-instances-per-episode "laugh frequency", let alone of the 'kind' that Head Case triggers -- i.e. an oh-so-tickled funny bone, along with much of each episode involving 'residual smiles' that one often experiences in the wake of laughter -- and in this case, the smiles end up being 'reinforced' by additional waves of smiling that cannot help but occur in response to the seemingly neverending comical brilliance of this show.

Honestly, I don't know that I ever watched this show with a straight face (for even part of any episode), and certainly didn't watch it with a serious demeanor -- doing either would have been all but impossible with this show.

Additionally, the laughs that this show triggers from me are often of the kind for which an accompanying additional physical response of sorts occurs -- often involving my upper body moving/tipping forward, or just my head (tipping back (and with eyes closed, sometimes)), and sometimes my arms (when I laugh hard, sometimes my hands are suddenly placed just below my neck, with one hand atop the other, as though I'm about to strangle myself (lol)).

This show was/is hilarious, and highly original... and there is so much of the comedy that involves a physical expression -based 'accompaniment' to what is said, and the actors delivered 'comedy gold' (and when it comes to the countless interactions and lines that involved deadpan delivery, how any of them could ever keep from breaking character, and cracking up, I'll never know :) ).

What these actors pull off in this show is so fantastic, and so funny, that I cannot imagine anyone else in these roles...

Season 2 of Head Case has two DVD discs so I was expecting a few more episodes after the fourth show on disc 2. I thought the Freud Liberation Army would be much funnier, but I might know too much about Freud already. One of the best lines:

I don't like made up religions.

People have been trying to figure out how to worship for thousands of years, competing with various local customs. Head Case is not usually about religion. The significance of marriage and anxiety attacks dominate season 2. My real life has been devoid of comedy at this level, so I was vulnerable to becoming a fan that laughs at things other people hardly ever read about. My attempts to put a literary life together for myself are piffle compared to the final episode of Head Case. Random House is not as interested in an author as in a subject like how celebrity has become such a dominating entertainment value for people who wonder what is going on. I did not know the actors in most of the shows, but the shrink who falls asleep and the therapist passing out after drinking resonate with what my brain does so frequently that I must have struggled to stay awake to see this season.

My DVD of Head Case Season 1 has another fan in Saint Paul so I found out (from her) more about some of the people involved. I can understand why Andy Dick is almost a regular character playing himself. I like to make comparisons with rock and roll. I can't think of a single hit song about a psychotic shrink.

Season one is the stronger of the two seasons on DVD. Maybe it's the guest stars, the fresh ideas, storylines, etc. I personally found myself wanting to see more of Dr. Myron Finkelstein (Fred Landedberg) I think he was really underused. Overall the show is entertaining but it's best to watch one episode at a time (small doses) and the improv is only as good as the subject and actors, it's no Curb. IMDB has it listed as three seasons but the DVD Complete set is two seasons. I think this show had some webisodes too bad they aren't included on the DVD. I would suggest viewing some clips on the web, Netflix it, or rent first. If you find yourself laughing at the dialogue it's probably worth adding to your collection. Get the full set though unless you already own season one.

This is a very funny series. I can't believe they didn't continue it although it did seem that they had exhausted themes for continuing for a new season. It holds up for view our absurdities and overwhelming need for love and contact regardless of what's obviously not good for us. One of my favorites.

We stumbled upon this show and it's crazy funny! I wish there were more episodes. You need to know that everything is improvised on Head Case and there are some wacky performances by the guest stars but Dr. Goode is the absolute best.
