Takes me back to family TV night when I was a kid
I loved Boy Meets World, Full House, Growing Pains, etc., when I was a kid, and sitcoms remain my favorite genre. Always an easy story to wade through, never too heavy, just lighthearted, WHOLESOME, fun, funny. Exactly what I need when I'm trying to decompress. So it's no surprise I thoroughly enjoyed Country Comfort! The show is a good mix of funny but also heart. Very much like the shows from my childhood. And even the recent reboot of One Day at a Time, where there's funny moments but they don't shy away from the real emotions of life either. I really appreciate that. Doesn't always have to be joke on joke on joke. While it's pretty clear some of the young actors are quite new, they grow more and more charming as the episodes progress. I heard in interviews that behind the scenes they dealt with Covid interrupting their season, so when they got back into production there was no live audience. That explains the laugh track, but it didn't bother me. Then again, I genuinely enjoy sitcoms. And the music is fantastic. Katharine McPhee can SIIIING! I hope Netflix will give it a second season so we can see where the story goes now that they've found their way to being a concrete family unit. We need shows we can watch as families, not just shows the parents watch while the kids watch something separately. Bring back TGIF!
