Pointless Nonsense

Posted in tv by Bill on August 4, 2017

The Guest Book seems like the TBS sitcom version of the HBO anthology Room 104. The framing device is the guest book in a cabin, and the stories people wrote down in said guest book. This has recurring side characters, though, and seems like it might have stories kinda unfolding in the background. It’s from Greg Garcia, the My Name is Earl/Raising Hope guy, and it has that same kind of small down idiot sense about it.

It’s not great, but the second episode was better than the first, and I feel like it’ll only improve as it builds up the stories of the town around the cabin. So I’m on board, I guess.

Even just through two episodes, it has a ton of familiar faces. Mac from Night Court, the nurse who died on Scrubs, Lauren Lapkus (that suddenly-everywhere comedic actress who kinda looks like she could be DJ Qualls’ sister), Abed, Stockard Channing, Mary Lynn Rajskub, Garrett Dillahunt, the Crab Man, Kellie Martin, Michaela Watkins, and Batista from Dexter. The commercials indicate Jenna Fischer, Michael Rappaport, some hot hispanic girl, character actress Margo Martindale, Kate Micucci, and Jaime Pressley will be showing up in subsequent episode.
