TV review-The Comedians Episode 1

In a world where Billy Crystal and Josh Gad are very dull and unfunny. Hopefully that world will change, it will just be the case that the first episode was introductory and a one off.

Even thought it’s a satirical comedy, you would expect with the names associated with it, that it would have been at least a bit funny, at the very least a few good jokes.  However, but the end of the episode I came to the sad realization that I had not laughed, not even once during the duration of the show, maybe a couple chuckles at best.

On a positive note, the show seems to execute the documentary-style series quiet well and it feels as if we see what the actors do when they are not actually performing, like being able to get a glimpse of their life. Billy Crystal has a different role to what we are used to, a bit more serious rather than the wacky characters he usually portrays, even though the tv show has a wacky and weird feel to it, it reminds me of the usual weird tv shows on FX, oh wait…

For the sake of the people involved and how good they can be, I hope it gets better. I am confident it will.
