Oh NBC. I want to love you. For the most part, you have awesome Awesome AWESOME taste in comedies. That means a lot coming from me. I'm REALLY picky about comedies. When it comes to drama, I'll kind of watch a range of quality. I'm aware some of the things I love are actually horrible, but I can enjoy them. When it comes to comedy, however, you better bring it. Usually, NBC, you do. You're home to Community! 30 Rock! And my most recent I-should-have-watched-this-forever-ago-but-I'm-just-now-getting-into-it show, Parks and Rec. With that, I was really excited to see what you had to offer. And, well, I'm not gonna lie...I was a little disappointed. I expected more from you, NBC. I really did.
Ok, fine. I can't complain TOO much. You were the one network to deliver the ONLY pilot trailer that actually made me laugh out loud. Are you ready for the only comedy that I'm remotely excited about this fall? WELL HERE YOU GO!
The New Normal
Now, I know, I know. Ryan Murphy. But! You guys! His first seasons are FANTASTIC. Popular, Nip/Tuck, Glee, American Horror Story: all had terrific beginnings. This show looks quirky, funny, charming, and heartwarming with a touch of the irreverent humor I love. At the very least we'll get 13 great episodes, and isn't 13 better than nothing?
Plus! Ellen Barkin!!! And a reference to Alicia Florrick! Come on, check it out with me!
Why should you watch it? Three reasons: Eric Kripke (Supernatural), Jon Favreau (Ironman, SWINGERS!!), J.J. Abrams (seriously? I have to link you? you don't know who he is? Fine.). Here's the deal, though. I really want it to do well because you know I'm a big nerd and I love the whole genre, but I don't think it will last. So check it out while it's on! It looks like it'll be a fun ride! Post-apocalyptic world! Archery! Intrigue! Mystery! It'll be fun while it lasts. And hey, maybe if enough of us watch it'll get to stay on air!
Ok, i'll be honest. I....probably won't watch this one. Well, no, that's not true. I'll probably watch the pilot because I try to watch all of the fall pilots if I'm able. However, I can't promise I'll stick with it. I'm sure it will be fine, just not my cup of tea. I just had to post the trailer on here because I'm pervy and like looking at Taylor Kinney with his shirt off. Jesse Spencer is fairly attractive as well (even if he's cuter with his real accent).
Till next time! <3
