Thanks to my DVR never getting cleared out of old recording prompts, I suddenly found myself with a series of episodes of ‘The Mindy Project’, allowing me to finally see the last season of Dr. Lahiri’s life.  I gotta tell ya, if I had to be a fictional doctor, it’d be a toss-up between her, JD from ‘Scrubs’ and Leonard “Bones” McCoy, and frankly, Mindy’s wardrobe might make all the difference in the world.  She also doesn’t seem to do much actual doctor stuff, which means I wouldn’t be hanging out all the time in hospitals and junk, leading us to today’s frivolous-but-fabulous query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) really wouldn’t want to be any superhero Doctor, as they tend to get blown up and disrespected on a regular basis, asking: Which fictional doctor would you most want to BE, regardless of whether you’d ever want them to be your caregiver?

Once upon a time, there was a young nerd from the Midwest, who loved Matter-Eater Lad and the McKenzie Brothers... If pop culture were a maze, Matthew would be the Minotaur at its center. Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture! And a nice red uniform.


  1. Despite being part of my least favorite Trek series, Doctor Phlox. I envy his opportunity to have a front row seat to new discoveries (both horrific and amazing, sometimes simultaneously) while making do treating a crew stumbling through space with relatively limited medical supplies compared to the fancy sickbays of the future ships.

    Ratchet, from various versions of the Transformers mythos. Think about how much a doctor who has a lifespan of millions of years can do?
