Fortysomething? Five-something stars.
on May 24, 2014
I could go into a long-winded review of Fortysomething, but, to keep it short and to the point:
Hilariously funny with actors that people know and love, and some that we might not recognize the names of but learn to love from their performance in this TV miniseries. Humour galore, a great deal of it what would be dubbed "inappropriate", but that's what gives it the comedy effect. I don't like comedies, even, and this one made me laugh out loud countless times during each episode.
I wish there would have been more episodes, but if it hadn't ended where this did, we probably wouldn't have ever had shows like "House" or even "Sherlock". Overall, a good comedy instilling the values of family (and sometimes, the lack thereof) and love, with all the snarky attitude of British humour, it's a good investment for the Hugh Laurie, comedy, or British fan.
