Review of "I
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.
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
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.
