    Absolutely brilliant. I saw the British version and then the American version, but the zdoggMD version is the best!

    Love it! I’m binge-watching H of C these days while recovering from surgery, and he’s nailed the show’s approach! He needs to do pertussis next. We have a new grandchild, and a lot of folks who our kids asked to be vaccinated thought they were being very unreasonable.

    We were quite aware of the need, since my husband was one of the first baby-boom rebound cases several years ago. We had to rack our brains and go over every infant he could have possible infected n the weeks before he got sick.

    This is even more hilarious if one turns on the “closed captioning” option and view how many words/phrases are misrepresented!

    Ironically, I had to turn down Dora the explorer to watch this…. Sigh…

    When the wife became pregnant we searched for all of the potential ailments a child could have from parents over 40. There’s a lot out there and the vaccine conspiracies abounded. Luckily, and in contrast to so many who only look for info that supports their fears/conclusions, I read both sides of the debate. Come to find out, there’s no real debate, just common sense. Don’t bring your kid in for shots when sick and watch closely for any negative reaction.

    Fear sells! I won’t even get into the fear being sold when you are over 40 and pregnant.

    Good one! I love the passive-aggressive approach.
