I was feeling a little down today, so I decided to cut that crap and put on some
I laugh thinking about this show. I laugh in anticipation of the show starting. I laugh at the opening credits, throughout the show and I have aftershock residual laughs. The show = giggle kingdom.
So then, if you’re feeling stressed, are carrying a heavy sack of the winter blues, or need something to make you a bit more buoyant, turn to this NBC monolith of comedy.
It’s so random and so well-scripted. The cadence of the actor’s lines are spot-on. The comedy is quirky and weird, awkward, candid, asinine. Amazingggggggggg. It’s also so so lovely to see Jane Krakoski, of Allie McBeal fame in a more outrageous role than she was given in AMB. She was more subdued, more calculated, now she’s unhinged, fiery, ridiculous, wide-eyed, and lunatic.
Tracey Morgan. I had no idea. You’re like eleven years old trapped in a 40’s temple of doom.
Alec Baldwin, I think this is your best role ever. Ever. You’re incredibly funny and so well-timed. If I could spent eleven minutes with you in this character, I think I would be in a good mood for two months afterwards.

“You know why my place is so big? When I was first married to my ex-wife, we were in the basement over the years i kept buying the floors above me to make room for the family I thought we’d have would never have. Well now I have something better than a family–a walk-in humidor, a lap pool, and a replica of the Irish pub where my grandmother was born. ”
This shit makes me watch the television I have been avoiding since the mid 2000’s.
