I Feel Bad poster 

Review of "I Feel Bad" 9/22/18 by Eva Diaz
airs Thursdays 9:30/8:30pm on NBC

I decided to watch this show because the commercials looked funny. It's basically about an Indian-American family trying to blend their two cultures. The show is from the point of view of the mom, Emet (Sarayu Blue) trying to be the perfect wife, mom, daughter, and friend to everyone in her life.The show is funny, but it has a few problems that need to be fixed, the main one being the show's name doesn't exactly make you want to watch because it doesn't sound like a comedy. The name of the lead character is Emet, which could lead to confusion, but the actress that plays Emet is funny when she narrates in the style of "My Big Fat Greek Wedding." She and her husband David (Paul Adelstein) have good chemistry together. This show is very similar to American Housewife, and one of the two first episodes was very similar to one of the episodes in that show.

I hope the problems that I have pointed out from the show get fixed in future episodes because it would be great if they would add more funny situations arising from the differences between the Indian culture and the American culture, as Emet and David struggle to raise their kids to appreciate both sides of their culture. I give this show 3 out of 5 star,s and I wil keep watching, hoping the show improves because it has a lot of potential.


Emet is the perfect mom, boss, wife, friend and daughter. OK, she’s not perfect. In fact, she’s just figuring it out like the rest of us. Sure, she feels bad when she has a sexy dream about someone other than her husband, or when she pretends not to know her kids when they misbehave in public, or when she uses her staff to help solve personal problems. But that’s OK, right? Nobody can have it all and do it perfectly. From executive producer Amy Poehler comes a modern comedy about being perfectly OK with being imperfect.
The cast includes Sarayu Blue, Paul Adelstein, Madhur Jaffrey, Brian George, James Buckley, Zach Cherry and Johnny Pemberton.
Aseem Batra will write and executive produce. Julie Anne Robinson will direct and executive produce the pilot. Amy Poehler, Dave Becky and Josh Maurer also executive produce. “I Feel Bad” is produced by Universal Television, Paper Kite Productions, CannyLads Productions and 3 Arts Entertainment.
