There’s a time and a place for most things and I think I speak for everyone when I say Anna Faris’s place was about 5 years ago, but good on CBS for giving her another shot.
The jokes were a little predictable, but that’s what made it fit right into the Monday night CBS line-up. I did enjoy the dynamic between Anna Faris’s character, Christy, and her mother, Bonnie, played by Allison Janney.
I wanted to not like Mom so much and possibly I took a lesson from Anna herself in Smiley Face while watching, but I laughed. I laughed more than once while watching this show. I am still laughing at the Christ-y line when I feel like maybe I shouldn’t be. Is this what it feels like to ‘get’ Two and A Half Men?
I liked the show, okay? There’s something there, even if it’s just the pilot episode, that’s worth liking - I think. There are some honest moments and maybe that’s just what Mondays on CBS needs.
Agreed and I laughed at Christ-y too.
