I love Episodes. So well written. The Comedy was done very well.I just watched Episodes (a showtime series) that has ended and now available in full on netflix.
It's about two british writers (married) that have a hit show in england and move to LA to recreate the series for an american audience.
This was really great. Some of the laughs that I got out of this show were extraordinarily loud. aka the funny moments were really damn funny.
Also I want to give some special attention to the actress Tamsin Greig
She is the floating head at the bottom of the picture and sometimes plays the disagreeable wife in the show.
I have never seen a disagreeable heel of a wife character be played so likable and funny.
Usually those types of characters are a bit grating to the audience but I liked her the whole time so bravo to her, i know that wasnt an easy performance to succeed at.
I've been enjoying The Amazing Mrs. Maisel a lot. Like, a lot. I'm on Season Two now. Not flawless, but gosh, it's still been soooo good for the most part. Gets a strong recommend from me based on what I've seen so far.
this is like creating a show about someone that goes to the gym one day, and then accidentally walks out looking like prime time arnold.
that shit doesnt happen lol. it takes soooo much work.
I tried to watch that and im just too cynical about standup. She does one set and suddenly she has someone believing in her and following her around lmao. If you want a look into the REALITY of standup comedy...
If every story relied on being 100% technically accurate, we’d have a lot of long and boring storytelling out there. Sometimes abbreviation makes for a stronger story, because less can be more.
Also, take into account that Maisel takes place in a different era where standup was more underground than mainstream. Even at that, it’s just storytelling. There are so many things that are caricatured in that series, and that’s part of what makes it great.
“Who Framed Roger Rabbit?” is a fun ride. There’s no way a police detective would actually get pulled into a caper with an animated rabbit, but that doesn’t take me out of enjoying the story.
