Following the second season of her acclaimed HBO Series The Comeback, Lisa Kudrow has been asked to host the Writers Guild Awards West Coast Show.
“One of my most proud professional moments was when I qualified to join the Writers Guild,” said Kudrow, a WGAW member since 2005. “Now, I’m truly honored to be asked to host the WGAW awards show this year.”
Well THAT was awkward. And by “that” I mean probably 60 percent of this episode of The Comeback. Things haven’t exactly been easy for Valerie Cherish during the entirety of The Comeback, but we may have hit a low point in humiliation on this latest episode. I’m not a squeamish fella typically, but I would argue that some of the cringe-inducing comedy of this episode rivals any of the gore on The Knick’s surgical scenes. I mean that final image of Val’s head in Seth Rogen’s lap? I almost had to turn away. But at the same time I was howling.
Is The Comeback’s comeback even better than the first season? Hello. Hello. Hello. Definitely. This week’s second installment just cemented the fact that this series was ahead of its time during the initial run and feels even more timely and relevant now. It also just feels sooooooo funny. I watched this week’s episode in my office and laughed out loud. Granted, I’m an incredibly loud fella, especially given my diminutive size, but still. Valerie be funny.
Well, she got it.
By “she,” of course, I’m referring to the one and only Valerie Cherish—and by “it,” I mean a second second chance. (A fourth chance?)
As a TV critic, I often feel that good shows don’t have a big effect on me. Obviously, the great ones do. But I also find that the ones that I initially dislike are also the ones that I end up thinking about the most, long after they’re over, wondering why they touched a nerve for me in the first place. How can something that inspires such a strong opinion possibly be all that bad?
