A TV show about me!

I’ve recently learned there’s a new TV show on the FOX network that’s all about me! Chris Vance plays Dr. Jack Gallagher in “Mental.” Gallagher runs the psychiatric ward at a hospital in Los Angeles and he gets around almost exclusively by BICYCLE. When he’s in a car it’s because he took a cab.

The show creators took some creative license with my true story, so here’s a guide to the differences between the real life Dr. Jack Gallagher (me) and the fictional me (Dr. Jack Gallagher).


Fiction
Reality
Gallagher commutes to work on one of many bicycles. I commute to work on one of many bicycles.
Gallagher owns several bikes that he hangs inside of his loft I own several bikes that are parked outside on the porch.
One of Gallagher’s bikes is a repainted GMC Yukon road bike. I wouldn’t be caught dead on a GMC Yukon road bike
His twin sister Becky calls him but never says what she’s doing My brothers IM me late at night when I’m asleep
Gallagher runs a psychiatric ward I was once admitted to a psych ward. The doctors there were very kind.
Gallagher works with young, attractive oversexed colleagues who wear tight sweaters. I work with middle aged guys named “Sanjay” who wear sweater vests and talk about their favorite cricket teams.

I hope you enjoy Fox’s “Mental” — I have a lot of myself invested into it!
