Does anyone remember when Jay Mohr was semi on the verge of becoming a relevant actor? I do. And I’m not even kidding. He was great in Jerry McGuire, Suicide Kings, and I even liked him in Pay it Forward. But clearly Mohr was never really meant to be a movie star.
And that brings us to the abomination of a show they call “Gary Unmarried.” I’m not even going to delve into the specifics of the show because I don’t care. I just know that I saw half of an episode about a month ago. As soon as a I saw Matt Lillard acting like someone trying to make the crowd laugh in a Hawaiian Punch ad I knew it sucked.
I mean this show is literally one step away from “The Life of Jim” or whatever that Jim Belushi show was/is. How are people laughing at this show? Is it even possible? The actors literally act how someone on a silly commercial would act. Way over the top, horrible punchlines (if you call them punchlines) and just overall “dumbness.”
It’s kind of like the same mentality as people actually enjoying the show “Reba” or “The Jeff Ingvall Show.” I guess it stands to reason that I am not America and America is not me. If shows like this remain in existence then perhaps I’m the one who should be offed.
Am I alone on this one? God I hope not. The only redeeming thing about this show is the older chick who got naked on Californication last season (Paula Marshall) who consequently starred on one of my favorite canceled shows, “Hidden Hills.” She’s also the reporter on Seinfeld’s “Not that there’s anything wrong with that” episode.
Jay Mohr. Kill yourself buddy. This show really really sucks.
