TV Reviews: Mom, Brooklyn Nine-Nine & We Are Men
The reason I actually even wanted to watch this series was because of Allison Janney, who I loved from The West Wing. But it also stars Anna Faris who I find very funny. I've seen two episodes so far and it's funny, it's not "must see" funny but I laughed out loud several times during the show. It's not a role I could ever imagine Allison doing as I'm use to seeing her in the more serious drama roles but she is funny. If times gets restricted this series would probably fall to the waste side but for now I'll continue to watch and laugh at Mom.
Another new comedy that I watched is called Brooklyn Nine-Nine, this series is an ensemble comedy about what happens when a talented, but carefree, detective and his diverse group of colleagues get a new captain with a lot to prove.
It stars Adam Samberg who is hilarious in Saturday Night Live. I missed the pilot as I wasn't really that interested in this but I do watch Dads and this series airs after and my DVR captured a few minutes of the first episode and it caught my attention so I recorded the next episode and just watched it. It's funny but like with most comedies this TV season, it's not a "must see" TV for me. I'll continue to watch but if I need to drop any TV this year this would go first.
I wanted to watch this one because it stars Jerry O'Connell but I have to say I wasn't impressed with the pilot. I liked all the male bonding and all the bros stuff but I didn't think it was funny. As with most new series I'll give them three or four episodes before I decide to drop it or not.. but as of right now the jury is still out on We Are Men.
