'LAST Comic Standing' Season review: Season 2 (2 episodes) At first it is a somewhat ridiculous and unwelcome change of pace in the otherwise predictable network television industry. But in practice,'LCS' is actually very different and often rather tedious to watch. In fact at times I found myself wishing that the entire show were filmed in slow motion. The acting is so poor and sometimes I felt as if the characters on screen didn't really have a life or a personality of their own.
The concept behind LEADER is that there is a new team every week. Each team contains some combination of an 'expert', a normal person gone bad, and a newly formed group of people who are each trying to help the main character achieve their goal of becoming the leader. The new characters are interesting and intriguing. They are sometimes funny, but mostly annoying, and most of all they're drawn together by their singular goal of taking over the house.
The concept of the comic is that there is a kind of magic involved. Each character has an inherent power that is different than the rest. The team is divided up into two teams each with a specific 'expert' on that topic. One expert is usually male and the other female. So for example there can be a male magician, a male hypnotist, a female FBI agent and a male psychologist among other possibilities.
The comic itself follows a predictable plotline, with each episode focused around one member of the team. There's Jim, played by Jason Priestley, a war obsessive who wants to win a war. He's obsessed with getting the score on his favorite college football team. Then there's Jill, played by Jennifer Aniston, a loner who wants to get out of her marriage. Finally, there's Kevin, played by Edward Barbanell, a geek who barely fits in with his friends.
The series follows their quest in search of a mythical object called the Golden Apple which supposedly resides in an apple tree in California. The only problem is no one can tell where the apple tree is or what it looks like. The series follows this theme well. Except for the final scene in which everyone finds out the location of the mysterious Golden Apple, which was buried under a mountain.
The series is about five friends that become extreme opponents. The conflict revolves around their lack of common ground. The last few episodes have seen them split into two groups, each trying to defeat the others for a prize. This has become the show's signature style.
The writers, Jennifer Aniston and Edward Barbanell, know this and play it brilliantly. However the real strength of the show comes from the fact that the characters are given more depth than most comic protagonist. Yes, the main protagonist always has something good to say. However, there's also an ensemble of supporting actors that provide the viewer with much needed humor and great character development.
The best thing about Friends is how its various characters are given such realistic dialogue. The show's plot constantly keeps viewers entertained through its witty dialogues. Some of the best dialogues come from Rachel Green. Friends has become one of the most successful sitcoms in the history of television.
Its not just a sitcom though. Friends is also set in Washington D.C. The reason being that the U.S. capital is the home of the show. This is the reason why American Presidents are often seen sitting around having coffee while discussing various issues. Yes, it is indeed a sitcom about the American people.
There was a time when Friends was just a TV show that you watched whenever you felt like it. Today, it is much more. It has caught the attention of millions of people around the world. Many consider it one of the most popular television shows ever. It has won awards and numerous acclaims.
Its not wrong to say that Friends is one of the greatest TV shows of all time. It has established a name for itself as one of the greatest U.S. television shows of all time. It has left an indelible impression on people across the globe. That is why I consider Friends the best comedy series ever. So, if you want to be included in that list of the best last Comic Standing of the year, then try out Friends.
