apols for the double post, i only came in here to suggest arrested development
i watched the first episode of the second season of eastbound & douwn, and didn't really like it at all. didn't seem to work when it was just kenny. does it improve?
but there's nothing likeable about kenny powers.
where as there usually is something endearing about other comedy wankers.
i should say i loved the first series, i guess when he's got loads of likeable foils around him, it's works a bit better.
Not sure why. I just didn't find it HILARIOUS.
it's strange w/ that and other HBO comedy, Bored to Death (which maybe ehwhat) should check too, they have these absurdly high budget/high concept shows w/ these weird, full-front nudity scenes. they're enjoyable and watchable but (maybe thru being used to Curb's film quickly style, or British comedies rip-off the office-mockumentary style) it's just really odd watching comedies that are sooo removed from real life.
in your face kind of comedies. I'm not too keen on those. I may just not like it because the main guy irritates the fuck out of me.
Parks & Rec is far better....better than any comedy mentioned in this thread actually.
It's the worst episode of that series. It's not as good as the first series though but Stevie is in it.
I also find Kenny slightly endearing.
I don't find him endearing in the slightest. I've watched about 4 episodes so maybe he changes? I don't know.
not as endearing as Stevie but still endearing enough.
as I thought he was just a character you were supposed to hate.
*I probably won't though.
Well worth checking out.
and eastbound and down
Slightly mental Scottish man makes show a bit like the more coherent bits of Tim and Eric Awesome Show Great Job but not really like that at all.
Episodes 1-5 of current series on iPlayer. I reckon episode 3 is the best, but 2 has one of the funniest sketches for years :
I'M NOT FAE YOKER!!
Also check out Burnistoun
Another really funny Scottish sketch comedy show on BBC Iplayer (probably).
but that's not technically a 'new comedy' so idk what i'm doing in this thread.
I love it so much
can't get the scene at the morgue (where they're deciding what body to eat) out of my head :'D
His breakdown in the mailroom in Sweet Dee Has a Heart Attack is one of the all-time high points for mankind
I'VE GOT BOXES OF PEPE!
It already got cancelled last year though : (
I think I watched about 3 episodes before I got a bit bored with the whole thing.
