Maybe the worst sitcom of all time
Real-life braniac, Iris Bahr, has created, written, produced, directed, and starred in this new MA- rated TV sitcom titled Svetlana. Bahr takes on this title role. Flipping through channels I came across this show on the HD-NET Channel. It only shows late at night. I tried in vain to give this show my full attention, but my own good taste and intelligence reigned as I was left to scratch my head, yet again, on how people are getting production deals to get the green-light on such irrefutable garbage as is this poor excuse for a show. Apparently this Brown University graduate had spare time to learn all of the various disciplines she attempts to tackle in producing this show. I think she would have been a much more value to society continuing her studies in cancer, brain, and neuropsychology. The show is poorly written, filled with over used clichés, the acting is flat-out horrible and self-aware, none of the characters are developed, likable, or properly staged. Svetlana is a Russian madam bent on being crass and abrasive, arrogant and aloof. I don't get the point or the relevance of this show. Worth a look if only to see something really terrible.
