As season three concludes it is, now, time to reflect on the show called Girls. That is, now that all the exultation and wonder and merriment about this groundbreaking show has subsided. After all, it has been three seasons and there are newer, au courant (look it up) shows to call irreverent, revolutionary and the good ole ditty; “can’t miss.”
A few years ago a somewhat fresh new show came along with a diverse take on the “Family” comedy genre. Three separate but connected families showed that different family dynamics all make for great comedy. Modern Family has been on for five seasons and it has won four Emmys. I watched it from the beginning and it was funny… for the first half of that first season. The problem is that for some reason the last episodes of that season were absolutely unwatchable. I stopped watching and was flabbergasted to learn that the folks who vote for the Emmys not only nominated it but gave Modern Family the award for best Comedy. I almost fell out of my lazy-boy chair. I mean, what were you thinking!
