Pointless Nonsense

Posted in tv by Bill on January 18, 2016

angie-tribecaAngie Tribeca is TBS’s new procedural spoof show created by Steve and Nancy Carell, starring Rashida Jones. It’s familiar Police Squad, Naked Gun, A Touch of Cloth territory, but not executed as well. The spoof works best when it’s generally played straight. The actors perform as if they were actually in a real show, but their words and actions are ridiculous. Here, Rashida Jones does ok at that, but a lot of the supporting characters ham it up, and the result is pretty unfunny.
