I am generally not a TV watcher. Even during the STUPIDLY COLD WINTER CRAZY WEATHER WE ARE HAVING OH MY GOD, MOTHER NATURE AND GLOBAL WARMING STOP HAVING A CHICKEN FIGHT FOR MY VERY SOUL. Anyway, I watch very little tv, but there are some shows I think you need to start watching, because I like you, and I want to talk to you about them:
Cougar Town. Oh, I know, I know. Dumbest title in the history of titles. And I get that maybe Courtney Cox on a tv show makes you think Friends, and you've seen it all. BUT! BUT! Watch this show, because it is hilarious. Smartly hilarious. Seriously. Smart, witty banter about a grown up group of friends who aren't evil or hateful or solving crimes in their spare time. It's great! Courtney Cox has a giant wine glass she had a funeral for when it broke. This is genius.
Community. Are you watching this? WHY NOT? It's about a douchey lawyer who has to go back to college because he lied about graduating. It's great. Also smart and funny. And Troy and Abed are the most amazing couple on tv since Bert and Ernie. [Their version of Bert and Ernie is brilliant. (YouTube)]
Raising Hope. This is another comedy that I love. A guy has a one night stand with a serial killer, whom he impregnates. She is tried, found guilty, and gets the chair. He gets their kid [originally named Princess Beyonce; yes, they are white] and decides to raise her with help/hindrance from his parents and great-grandma [the brilliant Chloris Leachman, who would give Betty White a run for her money.]. Again, really smart, really funny.
Please watch these shows so I can talk about them with someone during this new Ice Age! What do you recommend? I'll watch if you will.
