Literally cried I laughed so hard. Ridiculously extraordinary.
6 October 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Literally cried I laughed so hard. Ridiculously extraordinary. My daughter came home from college and we watched this together at her suggestion. If I ever make the effort to actually sit in front of the TV, I will surrender to watch John Stewart, Steven Colbert,Cash Cab,Curb Your Enthusiasm, or Flight of the Conchords. That is it. I usually do this to make an effort at participating with other family members. I must admit though, these shows are good and I do enjoy them. The rest of TV is an insulting bore. I know that sounds harsh but it is the truth. Raising Hope is hysterical. I actually searched the internet for more episodes last night when I could not sleep. Almost worth purchasing that absurdly large flat screen for. Bravo!
