@2many2no Yeah I REALLY hate sitcoms and normal comedies. I can’t recommend this enough. From the innuendo to the comedy aspects of it. It’s a McFarlane show that I hope keeps going. I feel like it takes the best parts of Star Trek and makes it’s own great twist on it.
@llangley I’d vote for that as long as you throw in all 24 hr news (CNN, MSNBC, Fox News etc.) as hilarious mockery of what used to be considered journalism! Remember that time that they put on a performance for two years trying to convince everyone that Russia was responsible for Trump? Man, talk about a long build up for a punch line of “Just Kidding, Folks”…
I wasn’t sure what to think about it until I started watching it on Amazon, but “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” is well written, well acted, and that which is supposed to be funny (& there is a lot of comedy), is absolutely HILARIOUS!!!
@ruouttaurmind@transplant I watch it while doing something else. You don’t really need to pay attention. It’s a warm fuzzy comedy. Unlike Happy! which I find incredibly funny, but I feel like only a terrible person would laugh at.
South Park is always clutch, though I have been splitting my sides laughing at Big Mouth on Netflix lately. Marvelous Mrs Maisel is very solid when you feel like watching a show that you wouldnt be slightly embarrassed to have on with company over… Oh yeah, The “Three Robot” episode of Love, Death and Robots also had me chuckling pretty good for 12 minutes of randomness…
Santa Clarita Diet is high on my list because I have a completely warped sense of humor. The other is probably technically a drama: Killing Eve - which is funnier than a lot of the sitcoms, for those of us with the aforementioned warped sense of humor.
I came back here for the simple purpose of expressing my disappointment in anyone who said the last man standing was funny. If you love simpleton Jay Leno tonight show rim shot one liners, you found your mind numbing "comedy."it’s just about as entertaining as saying, “that’s what she said” after every other comment. I hate humanity a little more tonight. Bring it on climate change/rapture. We deserve it.
@goldnectar I know PhD mathematicians who like reality TV. If you’re seriously taxing your mind all day, every day, you may want to go for the “dumb” comedy when it’s time to relax.
Entertainment decisions are personal and inconsequential. There’s not much point in being elitist about them.
@goldnectar I feel the same way about a few of the shows mentioned here and a few of some of the most popular recent comedies not mentioned here.
However, I have (finally?) learned that people really don’t like to be told that you hate the thing that they love - or even dislike the thing they like, for that matter.
Who’d a thunk it?
