[ # ] Ken Jeong’s wife inspired his Dr Ken Halloween costume!
October 30th, 2015 under Halloween, Ken Jeong
It is time for Dr Ken‘s first Halloween episode tonight at 8:30p on ABC and it is a real treat!
Dr Ken and his wife got engaged on Halloween back in 1995, but it didn’t go as he planned. He decides to make it up to her by proposing at the same place where it all went down 20 years ago. When he goes to buy her the ring, Alison (Suzy Nakamura) gets a call from the credit card company about a possible fraudulent purchase. She calls him to find out what is going on and they get in a fight. Is his perfect proposal a bust again or will it finally work out this time for the not-so-happily married couple at the moment?
Meanwhile, his kids are having their own problems. Molly (Krista Marie Yu) takes her father’s favorite skeleton to a Halloween party; but when she stops short, Gary breaks in to 206 pieces. Now, Dave (Albert Tsai) and her have to put him back together before their dad finds out. Which gets really complicated when they discover that one of the bones is missing. What will they do?
As bad as all of that is, things are about to get a whole lot worse at the Welltopia Medical Group office. As Julie (Kate Simses) is talking to her boss Pat (Dave Foley), she doesn’t realize that he took one of her lollipops. What is so bad about that? It was a pharmaceutical sample and the lollipop is made of Fentanyl. Now their uptight boss is higher than kite. Damona (Tisha Campbell-Martin) and Julie have to keep an eye out on him, but when they lose track of him the unthinkable happens. What? You just have to tune in to find out.
All of that is a true treat, but the best part about the episode is Dr Ken’s costume. He goes to work dressed up at the Grim Reaper. Imagine what it would be like if your doctor walks in to your appointment dressed up as Death? Yeah, he had better have the paddles on standby. As we know, Ken Jeong was a doctor in real life and some of his real life experiences are making their way on to the show. This is one of them. About 10 years ago, his wife made a joke to him and it inspired the costume. Recently at a press day for the show, he told us “She would say, ‘Why don’t you dress as the Grim Reaper at the HMOs?'” While the two of them have been joking about since then, neither one of them did it until now. And they chose the safest place to do it, television.
There is a reason why Dr Ken was the first new comedy of the fall to get a full season pickup. It is the best one of the bunch and it gets better with each episode. So tune in tonight for an episode that will make you feel as happy as you did when you would come home with a full bag of candy as kid on Halloween. The best part is you won’t have a sugar hangover the next day, just memories of a great episode that made you laugh a lot.
