We've been watching 18 TO LIFE on CBC. Man, that is a funny, funny show. Brilliantly comic and lovable cast. Extremely well crafted, clever, fresh, sexy character comedy based on entirely believable characters and situations. We keep rolling the DVR back to watch the moments again. Michael Seater is adorable and Stacey Farber is charming and sexy, while Peter Keleghan and Al Goulem are national comic treasures.
I prefer comedy of moments to comedy of jokes. I'm not sure I can explain what I mean by that. Maybe that jokes sort of point to themselves -- hey, dummy, laugh! Moments feel familiar and yet fresh -- you've been there, so you laugh. Maybe -- jokes don't feel lived, moments do. I know, you'll say that good jokes feel lived, or something, so I'll stop now.
I think I like the show so much because I actually like everybody in it, and they're still
Give me 30 ROCK, MODERN FAMILY and 18 TO LIFE, and I'm a happy guy.
