A delightful, playful puppy of a comedy
on 18 March 2018
My speciality is missing out on brilliant series and then writing reviews about them once everyone has seen them.
If, however, you are lucky enough NOT to have caught this yet then cheer up for you have such a treat in store.
It is hilarious and its funniness is down to tons of things; direction, acting, plot, script, its lead, its perfect casting and on we go. Chuck in the casts' awareness that the camera is documenting their every move in a reality TV show format then sit back and enjoy. The lead is wonderfully and deftly played by Amy Poehler who is that funniest of characters, someone who takes herself seriously all the time but is never ever conscious of it.
No spoilers about the series (for hanging is too good for people who give them) but the nearest equivalent is the UK's "The Office" but without the cruel edge that you find sometimes there.
If you think that the Library Department in City Hall could be described in bitter, tight-lipped seriousness as 'an evil empire' then I think you might just enjoy this exquisite, delightful, playful puppy of a comedy.
