Great Character Dynamics, Yet Ruined By a Laugh Track
I stumbled upon Friends with Better Lives accidentally one night while my Netflix was not working and instantly fell in love. The character dynamics are phenomenal and the sense of humour is on point with the emerging adult generation. The show tends to get away with saying and showing things that are not often found on network television, which is off-putting in the best way. Pop culture references, such as The Good Wife and Fruit Roll-Ups filled me with joy. However, a lot of the jokes and scenes are actually lessened by the featured laugh track. While writers and producers probably assume that the laugh track would intensify the humour, it did the opposite, which is quite disappointing.
All in all, I love this show, and it's very disappointing to find out it was cancelled after just 5 episodes.
