Dharma & Greg

(4 votes)

Dharma & Greg tv seriesThere could hardly be an odder match, but love knows no reason- assistant DA Greg Montgomery, the golden spoon son of successful businessman Edward Montgomery and his bossy spouse Kitty, the queen of socialite snob-ism, falls madly in love with the utterly unconventional free spirit Dharma Finkelstein, truly the daughter of hippie couple Larry Finkelstein and Abby O'Neil, who never fail to go against whatever even smells like convention.

Even if they can't break the couple up, both in-law families -who never agree on anything else- never cease to stir as much as they are shocked by these incompatible lifestyles. Neither do the best friends help, Greg's lazy and incompetent, parasitic 'colleague' Pete Cavanaugh and Dharma's even more bizarre, bossy Jane, between which two another improbable hate-love chemistry develops.

When Greg, a young attorney from a wealthy family, meets Dharma, a free-spirited young woman, they get married in Reno on their first date. Their love is growing everyday as they get to know each other but their families, hers is a bunch of hippies and his is composed of snob Republicans, despise each other.

Trivia

The Vanity Card at the end of the first episode (the producer has added a long text, visible for only a second, at the end of every episode, called a "vanity card") starts with "Thank you for videotaping "Dharma & Greg" and freeze-framing on my vanity card." Near the end, it says "I believe that when ABC reads this, I'm gonna be in biiiig trouble."

Not only did the producer add a vanity card at the end of episode one, but at the end of every episode (visible for about 2 seconds, readable when freeze-framed). The main tests included various "beliefs" of the producer, as well as various outlooks on life. One in particular simply read "All work and no play makes Chuck a dull boy" over and over, except for the very middle of the screen, where it says "If you have stuck with this and read this far you are an exceptional person". Another said "the meaning of life might be "Sit, UBU, sit"".

Jenna Elfman's real-life husband Bodhi Elfman appeared as performance artist "Terry" in episode 5.8, "Home Is Where the Art Is".

Producer Chuck Lorre ends each episode with what he calls a "vanity card" - At the top of the screen you see "Chuck Lorre Productions" and a different number followed by a big paragraph of quirky remarks. The card appears onscreen for less than 2 seconds, not enough time to read it. Each episode has a different card.

The end of the opening montage for the series has several pairings of word expressing opposites, such as: sun and moon, yin and yang, sugar and spice.

John Amsterdam, a brilliant NYPD homicide detective is immortal. He is 400 years old, but his body structure is that of a 35-year-old. Amsterdam was a Dutch soldier in the year 1642 when he stepped in front of a sword to save the life of a Native American girl during a massacre of her tribe. The girl in turn rescued Amsterdam by weaving an ancient spell that conferred immortality upon him. It was also prophesied that he would not age until he finds his one true love, and only then will he become whole and ready for mortality.
