We got an email yesterday about a hot new sitcom hitting the airwaves this fall, and we didn’t think to post it because – why would we? The only television I ever watch is the closed circuit feed from a apartment lobby somewhere that accidentally got rewired to my television set. When will Bald Guy from 3B finally admit his feelings for Lady with Sunglasses from 5D? When!
Luckily, /film was smart enough to actually look at the promo materials which turned out to be a really solid viral campaign from Judd Apatow’s upcoming Funny People involving Jason Schwartzman’s character Mark Taylor Jackson returning for a second season on the show “Yo Teach!” The show is a pitch-perfect parody of basically all other classroom sitcoms that makes me long for the hilarious work of Howard Hesseman.
As you can see, the English language is Bo’s biggest rival. It doesn’t get anymore averagely funny than that, folks. The show also has its own fake page on NBC which makes me wonder why they don’t go ahead and just make the show – it’s not like NBC didn’t finish fourth among all the networks and needs a winner this fall season.
Stay tuned – we’ll probably be covering Funny People more and possibly even reading our email from time to time.
What do you think?
