Thoughts on 4 New Television Shows
2. 1600 Penn - One of the most painful comedies I have seen in a while (granted I haven't watched many of the new comedies, because they all looked painful - but this one actually seemed promising). I'm going to blame it all on Josh Gad, since he is one of the creators and the least funny character on the show. None of the actors are used to their full potential. I watched 3 episodes and didn't laugh at all...not even once! I think that 3 episodes is more than enough time to establish humor for a television series. I could see if there are other kinks to work out, but the first thing that a comedy sitcom needs to be is FUNNY. Also, I never hear anyone talking about the series, which can't be a good sign. It's like it doesn't even exist.
