Serious Jest: (Casual Watch) There is no way I would ever have watched this show without the strong endorsement of someone whose opinion I respect; but after my friend Jon from I Need Another Drink put it in the “Always Worth Watching” tier of his Television Power Rankings, I decided to give it a chance. I’m sure he originally agreed to watch this show as part of some type of compromise with his wife…I hope it gained him permission to start watching The Walking Dead. My excuse is that I had already watched every other show in my HBO On-Demand queue.
At first, I thought that I would never hang out with any of these chicks (except Williams’s character, who can also be annoying sometimes). However, the show is undeniably raw, interesting, and hilarious. In particular, Driver and Alex Karpovsky keep me cracking up. While I don’t relate to most of the characters on the show, they are seriously entertaining. Now I’ll just have to find a lady to “force” me to watch Season 2 with her.
