Liz Lemon, head writer of the sketch comedy show "TGS with Tracy Jordan", must deal with an arrogant new boss and a crazy new star, all while trying to run a successful TV show without losing her mind.
Sarah Silverman stars as Sarah Silverman, an unemployed single woman who still behaves like a child. Sarah depends in everything on her sister (played by her real sister Laura). Sarah is petty, self centered, childish, sometimes dumb and always Jewish. Other characters are her two gay neighbors (or gaybors as she calls them) and Laura's boyfriend who is a police officer.

I've only just seen Season 1, and I think it is absolutely hilarious. In the 'tab' episode, I at one point thought my eyes were going to pop out of their sockets I was laughing so hard, which is why I was quite shocked to see this get quite a low rating. Does America never know when it has a good thing? I'm not for one minute comparing her to Hendrix and Hicks, but you have to question how such comedy brilliance seems to go largely under the radar. But then again, we have pretty much the same thing in the U.K. with people like Julia Davis and Mark Heap who are two of the finest comedy actors on these shores, seemingly sitting around twiddling their thumbs - when they could be making ME laugh. She strangely reminds me of Julia Davis too, just with a cheeky sexy Jew face and an American accent that could possibly drive me to insanity.
Sarah Silverman makes me laugh, makes me want to hug and kiss her, and also to tell her that she's a very naughty girl!.. Who makes me laugh, and hard. And I would really love her to come to the U.K. and make something over here, preferably teaming up with Chris Morris and other men and women of his ilk.
I gave the show a clear ten, although I would have maybe said nine, but the criminally low score swayed it.
