First of all, dobry dzien, Bielarus, (Welcome,Belarus!) and plyrit, Ukrania! (Welcome, Ukraine!) I know you have your choice of blogs, I just thank you for choosing this fine blog.
Now, I would like to try something different. I now submit for your approval the names of three new sitcoms:
THE GOLDBERGS (ABC)
BACK IN THE GAME (ABC)
TROPHY WIFE (ABC)
And now, imagine those sitcoms were beautiful girls.Which one would I keep around for the long haul, which one would I like to hang out with before I committed, and which one would I just plain steer clear from?
I would marry THE GOLDBERGS, which is NOT an update of the Gertrude Berg classic, but is, rather, a semi-autobiographical comedy created and produced by one Adam Goldberg and set in the 80's. Jeff Garlin, Wendy McLendon Covey, and George Segal turn in hilarious performances as Adam's dad, mom, and granddad, respectively, and, with few exceptions, the hairstyles, wardrobe, and pop culture references have been meticulously researched. If you love the 80's, and sitcom families that reflect yours despite the period references, you'll love THE GOLDBERGS. Wubba wubba wubba! (It's an 80's thing, you wouldn't understand.)
I would date BACK IN THE GAME, starring Maggie Lawson as Terry Gannon,Jr. (Explanation coming up!), an ex-Little Leaguer who dropped out of college, drifted from used car dealership to used car dealership, and lives with her dad, Terry The Cannon Gannon , a minor leaguer who never made it to "The Show" and who insists on referring to himself in the third person (Oh, by the way, he's played by James Caan.). This show would like to think of itself as the millenial version of "The Bad News Bears," and, for the most part, it combines equal parts fun, heart, and baseball, but there are some portions that are clearly unsuitable for children (and some adults).I would recommend staying with this show and seeing whether it can smooth out all its rough spots and become the advertisment for persistence and enjoying what you do while you're doing it "Bears" was. This GAME could win America over if the producers play their cards right.
I would dump TROPHY WIFE, starring Malin Ackerman in the title role, because the concept of three wives in the same family is a one-trick pony they keep riding until it's ready for the glue factory. The Brady Bunch this ain't.
