Laugh out Loud funny... poor Brockmire and all his baggage trying to find some diversion from his inner demons. (Titanium Kid is in there too). Been a while since i've laughed this much.

I started watching this show on a lark and boy am I glad I did. I don't belly laugh very often but this show had me in stitches. I'm just sad there are only 8 episodes. Looking forward to next season.

It's a very good show. I would have to agree with a previous reviewer. Most comedies don't do it for me as far as being laugh out loud funny. Not this one. I find myself laughing quite often. Of course this is full of tragic characters, but don't we all have tragedy in our lives at one point or another?I for one find it much easier to cope with the troubles by making light of them. Not to mention the fact that Hank Azaria is pretty much a comedy genius with his arsenal of impressions and long track record in show business.

About Me

I am Sophie and this is my website.

A little about me ๐Ÿ‘‹ I am a marketing student in Paris. I love spending afternoons with friends in a cafe or a park.

But more than anything else, I love watching (.. bingingโ€ฆ) series on my computer on rainy Sundays or any sunny day for that matter ๐Ÿ™ˆ

I must have watched hundreds of shows by now, from romance to science-fiction series. Often I like to go back to a show I enjoyed. But I donโ€™t feel like watching it all over againโ€ฆ

I created this website so myself and others could find the best episodes of our favourite shows. As of today, I have about 1,000 shows on the website with votes and rating coming from fans.

Hopefully, you can join me from your sofa and enjoy some nice TV!
