TV Show Reviews
On" review by Suzanne
September 11, Tuesdays, 9/8c on NBC
This is a pretty funny show, and I hope it's a big hit! I
love Matthew Perry. His last show, "Mr. Sunshine", was fun,
but it was a little too weird and not quite funny enough to
be a hit. I think this new one is much funnier.
Perry plays a successful radio sports DJ who tries to
come back to work after the loss of his wife (a month
before). His boss (John Cho) makes him go to a therapy
group. There are lots of characters in the show, between his
work and the therapy group. You will notice some famliar
faces, I'm sure.
The beginning of the episode started slowly and not that
funny (the part where he goes into his office), but after he
left the office and went to therapy, it really picked up and
made me laugh quite a bit. Note that the only job a comedy
has is to be funny. It's nice if the characters are likable,
too, but the main thing is to be funny. It doesn't matter if
it has dramatic moments, or it's heart-warming, or it makes
you think, or anything else.
So many comedies today are not that funny, but this one
is. At least, the first episode was. Sometimes it's a fine
line, with quirky characters in comedy. They can be either
very funny or annoy you. They seem to be funny in this show.
Check it out !

Following the sudden death of his wife, sports radio personality
Ryan King (Matthew Perry ,"Friends," "Mr. Sunshine") is forced
to attend grief counseling. Feeling it unnecessary, he does so
reluctantly, and with minimal participation, until it becomes
clear that this may actually help him in unexpected ways.
