Trivia

In August 2017, NBC folded Seeso, their digital video and content site, bringing a lot of their forthcoming series to a halt, including Season 2 of Take My Wife, which had already been shot and edited at that moment. Eventually, seasons 1 and 2 became available on iTunes on March 2018, and were also buy by Starz to lunch on their app on May 1. See more »

Snore

I'm not sure how this ended up on iTunes since it seems like a web series. I'd be more forgiving if I ran across this on YouTube, but since it's slotted next to TV shows I'm going to grade it the same. Following two women's real lives while may seem interesting to some...well, actually, is it interesting to anyone? This isn't Kanye and Kim, and even I don't want to follow those two. The premise is boring. Following the real lives of a comedian and a graphic artist who wants to be a comedian is not interesting, and this isn't a reality show. This is supposed to be a comedic interpretation of their real lives. Snore.

First off, they're not funny. I've been informed that Cameron is a real comedian and funny. Fine, but standup comedy and comedic acting are NOT the same thing. You can be funny at one and not the other. Cameron is watchable and does have some likable comedic timing, I'll give her that, but her show jokes do not land. But this is still a vast improvement from Rhea who is neither funny nor can she act...at all. Cameron seems like she has some potential for a future of acting, so long as someone else writes her material. Her hair is weird and interesting and she has a likability factor. Rhea...I'm sure will make a great wife. She should stick to that and stay faaar away from acting. They both seem like they would be likable in real life but that does not make for a sitcom.

Watching lesbian material just makes me sad at how little there is and how bad most of what's out there is. There's no Brokeback Mountain or Will and Grace for women. There's the L Word and a few good movies...oh, and San Junipero, which is brilliant. This is just your typical cliche lesbian material that's poorly thought out, poorly strung together, and think women are so desperate will just gobble up anything served. Nope. With all the competition vying for our eyes, this just has to be better.
