2. What did you think of Schitt's Creek?

Last edited Thu Oct 29, 2020, 07:39 PM - Edit history (1)

Is it worth the time?

In this day and age of streaming, there's far more programs than I have time.

Thx

39. No, then youd miss David going to live with the Amish - I still laugh when I

think about that.

I would suggest just getting beyond those first 2 or 3 or 4 episodess - it will grow on you!

10. Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt,

Portlandia--disturbing, too
Marvelous Mrs. Maisel

The Queen's Gambit is not a comedy, but it is a great mini series.

21. Second Kimmy Schmidt.

Jane the Virgin also has a lot of comedy in addition to the wild twisty novela plot and quite a few touching moments.

ETA: The Good Place was very enjoyable, too. Downright philosophical at times.

12. I was going to recommend Becker starring Ted Danson but just looked

and I didnít see it on Netflix or Prime.

I bought the DVDs a while back and recently started watching them and have been laughing a lot 🙂

Iíd suggest you do a google search for it in America.

and turns out that show is called "Bess of Both Worlds" in the US. BUT, happy days, I can watch it! Yay!

17. I am watching Chuck, now. cheesy but fun. Another fun one that is Australian, Offspring on Netflix.

Also there is Portlandia, The Office, and Arrested Development. I enjoyed Lucifer. Grace and Frankie is good. And disjointed is odd, but I liked it. Politician was good the couple seasons, I haven't seen the new one. Good Omen is fun in its different odd way. One more.... what was it. Oh and watched How I met your mother series the other day. That is a fun one.

I love that cartoon, but it's apparently too weird for others who tried to watch it upon my recommendation.

34. Crime Scene Cleaner is the funniest and smartest show--at least for my taste...

It's a German show with English subtitles. Short 25 minute episodes. It's on amazon.

36. Netflix "Lilyhammer"

A comedy about a mob boss living under protective custody in Norway. E Street's "Little Steven" Van Zandt is an on the run mafioso in a very funny "fish out of water" comedy with a twist. I highly recommend it-some dialogue is Norwegian with subtitles but mainly in English.

37. Try Outrageous Fortune

Have been watching 1 to 4 episodes a day recently and now in the middle of the 6th and final season.

Some ways similar to Schitt's Creek in that about a dysfunctional family. Not that new and from New Zealand.

41. "Corner Gas"

It's a Canadian comedy about a little town in the middle of nowhere. No crude vulgar humor like Trailer Park Boys, but more of the dry wit kind of funny. It's on Amazon and IMDB with commercials

TPB is hilarious

I started watching The Ranch. Almost stopped after a few episodes, but I'm glad I didn't. It's pretty good. Although, considering the number of former That 70's Show people, well, it's not as good as it should be.

There's nowhere to stream this, but Duckman is great, and has stood the test of time. You'd have to get the discs from Netflix.

Married . . .with Children is still funny.
