Pointless Nonsense

Posted in tv by Bill on June 24, 2015

anotherperiodAnother Period is a new Comedy Central show that seems to be sort of a Downton Abbey parody, with kind of a ridiculous cast. Riki Lindhome and Natasha Leggero are the co-creators and star as the daughters of a crazy rich family in gilded age Newport, with husbands David Wain and the guy from the Sonic commercials, parents David Koechner and Paget Brewster, brother Jason Ritter, sister Artemis from It’s Always Sunny, servants including Christina Hendricks, Michael Ian Black, and that bearded guy that’s in a lot of comedies now where he plays the crazy bearded guy. It’s honestly not very good, there are only a couple of jokes I actually laughed at, but I feel like there’s some potential? Certainly with the cast. Enough to try a second episode, which hopefully will be funnier.
