Out of Practice

Out of Practice


One person in the family isn’t a doctor. One’s a plastic surgeon, one’s an ER doctor, one’s a gastroenterologist, one is a cardiologist, and one is a couples’ counselor.

But the lesbian? She’s the ER doc.

The show lasted less than one season (eight episodes went unaired), but it was your traditional sitcom. If you can catch it (maybe Netflix has it sometimes), it’s worth the eye-rolling laugh, as they actually handled a lesbian main character pretty well. She thinks her mother disapproves of her being a lesbian, but it’s really because she’s an ER doctor.

Oh, sitcoms.

As an amusing anecdote, Paula Marshall is known as “Back, Show Killer!” because many shows she guests on end up canceled shortly there after. She plays the lesbian.
