It's not a secret that I love the TV series Friends, afterall I do have all ten seasons on DVDs. I love all the characters on Friends but when it comes to making me laugh, Lisa Kudrow gets my vote. I didn't pay much attention to her post-Friends career until, in Austin last November, Marv introduced me to this series called The Comeback.
The show only lasted a short season of 13 episodes on HBO, but boy it was good! It was about a has-been TV star, Valerie Cherish, trying to make it big again by taking on a minor (and terrible) role in a new sit-com while making a reality TV show on the side called "The Comeback", hence the name of this series. We, the viewer, actually watch the "raw footage" of this fictional reality TV show and see what really is going on in Valerie Cherish's life. The series was funny, intended awkward and, like many Lisa Kudrow's post-Friends project I found after watching this show, heavily improved. At times, it's even hard to watch because you just feel for Valerie!
I also like how tough Valerie Cherish was in the show. She was vunlerable but she fight through a lot of difficult moments. She was a survivor!
It makes me laugh, so therefore... it is happiness.
