    I think there were about 4 episodes of this show where they actually explained medical stuff in an interesting and relevant way, and then it became all product placement, celebrity gossip and scare tactics. Their demonstrations are always so low rent too.
    Travis (did you guys know he was The Bachelor? But he's now married to a paediatrician) at least has the good grace to look embarrassed by some of the stuff they do, the paed is ok too. The original female doctor was good but the new ones are awful - especially the shrill one with the glasses.

    It is all pseudo science and oversimplification and they promote crap like hand sanitiser as being essential - bah.

    The Doctors all seem like narcissistic sociopaths.

    And Dr Phil is SO DEPRESSING! Who watches it?!

    Why is daytime tv so bad? And to think I spent so much of my university days procrastinating by watching it.

    He is a psychologist. Of course he is not going to be chatting with people who are all happy as Larry with perfect lives...

    I doubt that was the intention. Might have been a by-product but not the intention. Glass half full here!

    VP loves her some Dr. Phil!

    I haven't watched the doctors for years, I find it boring.

    Ellen on the other hand, I heart her. She should run for president. Alas, they don't air her in the UK so I have been Ellenless since October. I miss her.

    I don't mind a bit of Dr Phil but that Robyn segment was terrible. Something is up with Robyn's skin. It keeps getting whiter and whiter.
    The Doctors is up there with Dr Oz - just utter crap. Does anyone seriously take their 'advice'? I saw something on the news the other day about Dr Oz being questioned about some diet pills he was raving about by a politician. I think it said he admitted that they didn't work they way he said or something like that.

    So if we don't agree with you we're dumb? How about if you don't agree with me you're a pessimist?
