My Favorite Funny TV Show
Does it feel to anyone else as if you’ve watched every show in streamland? It’s especially hard to find great comedies, which feels like the only counterbalance to doomscrolling. There’s plenty of comedy, but I don’t love awkward, culpable, cringe-at-the-protagonist humor. I have to want to root for at least one of the main players. Schitt’s Creek and The Good Place are my two favorite recent superstar standouts (with Ted Lasso hot on their heels), and I’m holding onto each episode of their respective final seasons like letters from loved ones. But as I fill the gaps, I’ve turned to a lifelong favorite from long before I was born, I Love Lucy.
