Seinfeld Meets Sex In The City
On the surface The Shady Bunch looks like the usual story of three young professional women trying to make it in the Big City. But once you start watching you can see that there is so much more happening.
I consider it a cross between Sex In The City and Seinfeld. The comedy and timing are that good. The series starts off with Zoey (played by Callie Hopkins), a struggling actress, picturing her big break. Hopkins does an excellent job not only with the punchlines but also with the subtle elements of comedy.
The whole cast really works well together with Kelsey (Shanna Malcolm) and Sabrina (Rebekah Kochan) playing off each other with perfect timing.
The Shady Bunch is about three good friends who just can't help talking behind each other's backs and making their lives just a little bit harder. Not unlike the characters of Seinfeld.
The writing is very smart and the dialog sounds natural. The jokes come out organically and don't seem forced like too many sitcoms. The director, Q. Allan Brocka, keeps the story moving and frames the entire well. Brocka is an experienced comedic director and really shines in this series.
So, if you are looking for a new favorite show, The Shady Bunch might be just what you are looking for. Highly recommended.
