3rd Rock From The Sun

For me personally, 3rd Rock from the Sun is the last high concept sitcom. That is not to say there have not been any since, but when you look back at the history of television there have been so many incredibly over-the-top series that lasted for years and years, like Gilligan’s Island, Mork and Mindy, and Green Acres. Often very […]

Flight Of The Conchords

This is basically a FBF at this point, sorry for the tardiness you guys! This week has been a little nuts with some awesome life changes and new writing opportunities. So excited but for now let’s get back to breakdowns! Since TV Writers posted my WCW for Kristen Schaal, and I focused on LAST MAN […]

Last Man On Earth

Oh shit, is it an hour ’til midnight already? I wrote out this blog at noon and have yet to actually type up and post the damn thing. Shoot! Last season, one of my favorite surprise hits was LAST MAN ON EARTH. If you have not seen the show, do not read after the break. […]

Wings

After breaking down MADAM SECRETARY, I found myself going down an early 90’s sitcom path and wound up craving one of my favorite sitcoms from growing up: WINGS.

They are joined by each of their best friends, Jimmy’s roommate and former […]

Do you guys play video games? I definitely do not, at least not since I was nine and we had Donkey Kong for Super Nintendo. I could not beat that game, nor could I figure out how to operate any other game we bought for the system. I also once was on medieval/fantasy withdrawal late […]

Community

COMMUNITY is one of my favorite shows and is definitely one of the best written. They are so incredibly economical with their beats. If you watch the show, you can see that when they do their genre episodes there is typically one (maybe two) clear storylines but the more “traditional” stories (as traditional as COMMUNITY […]

Weird Loners

I typically walk away from a single friends comedy premieres that immediately implies two members of the group will end up together. When HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER first aired, I could not stand that the pilot was forcing Robin and Ted on the viewers but the ending of the pilot remedied this issue in […]

FRESH OFF THE BOAT, Season One, “Fajita Man” FRESH OFF THE BOAT on ABC is new this year, telling the story of Eddie Huang and his Asian immigrant family as they move from Chinatown, D.C. to Orlando, FL in the ’90s. The show fits nicely alongside two other ABC Comedies: THE GOLDBERGS, which shares “Boat’s” […]
