I go through spurts with t.v.
Sometimes I watch it a lot.
Sometimes I don't watch it at all.
I'm fickle, I know. But I think the main problem is that so many of the shows that I love get canceled. Abruptly, without warning, without any . . . what's that stupid-ass therapy word? Ah! Without any closure.
So here is a review of a show I loved that got canceled. Check it out on DVD and then join me in railing at the fates and stupid programming execs who think that reality t.v. is a winner. Fuck you, programmers.
Better off Ted.
|Oh, how I miss you all.|
To say that this is a workplace comedy does it a disservice. The show pushes every moral envelope you have, and you [o.k., I] suddenly find yourself [myself] rooting for the evil Veridian Dynamics. [link's video starts immediately]
The show crafts episodes that are biting and funny and delicious. Like the episode where the new automatic sensors couldn't read the African American workers. Yeah. That worked out great:
|They finally fixed it.|
|Why no, she's not evil.|
|Or sometimes she accidentally inappropriately touches a co-worker. Yeah. That starts something.|
|Veronica and Ted.|
|Yeah. Linda should just listen.|
|They know what's up.|
|That's gotta hurt.|
|Sometimes things don't go right.|
|Yes, Veridian, you do make life. better.|
Seriously, watch this show if you have not. I can't stress enough how funny it is. If you loved Arrested Development, then watch this show. If you love to laugh, watch this show. It's genius.
And fuck you, ABC, for getting rid of this but keeping Wipeout.
