LARRY! DON’T FORGET TOOTHPASTE! WE’RE ALMOST OUT!
This show. This show just gets me. It kills me right here in the heart. I’ve only watched almost 2 episodes and I’ve almost cried like 5 times.
And I love the way the show portrays Deb/Jane’s relationship with Stacy. I like how it touches on the fears women with either character’s body type have to deal with in life and how these almost seem to be the only 2 options. But the show reinforces that women can be far more than their body type and that there is greater complexity beneath it.
For a show that markets itself as more of a joke than anything else, it has some meaningful commentary that I think most people can actually relate to, especially women. It’s shows like this, like Drop Dead Diva, that end up garnering my interest and keeping my loyalty. Shows like Ugly Betty, which portray themselves as comedy but belie a far more insightful nature beneath the humor.
It’s shows like this that speak to me because, at my heart, I love comedy. Many people who know me don’t think I have a sense of humor, but it’s just that I have a very specific sense of humor. I like humor that makes me think. I’m just not really a fan of stupid humor, which is what’s pretty popular right now in mass media. So it ends up looking like I don’t have much of a sense of humor, but, in reality, it’s more that there isn’t as much that caters to my sense of humor right now. This show caters to that in little ways. It isn’t the most brainy show ever, or the most philosophical, or the most intellectual, but it makes me think when I laugh and I love a show that can do that for me. I love shows that make me enjoy them and make me think while doing so. This show delivers, and it slays my heart simultaneously.
