So Whitney was one of those shows that just looked god-awful in previews and early runs. I just thought it looked horrible. And nothing against creator and co-star Whitney Cummings, but I think of her as someone who plays it blue. Network television is not something this works as well for, but alas, 2 Broke Girls was one of the funniest shows that has premiered, and honestly, the best,and it was co-written by Cummings, so it can’t be that bad, right?
Well it wasn’t exactly whistlin’ dixie either.
But the show isn’t as bad as I make it out, it just wasn’t my cup of tea, although it was much better than both Up All Night and Free Agents. Personally, the show did make me chuckle outloud twice, surprisingly, but the general premise is just the day in the life between Whitney and her boyfriend of three-years Alex (Chris D’Elia). Honestly, imagine the set-up in He’s Just Not That Into You with Ben Affleck and Jennifer Anniston regarding a couple who are happy where they are with each other, but still dealing with the definition of marriage by society at large. As that is largely what the pilot was about; Whitney begins to question why her and Alex aren’t as frequent in bed as they used to be, maybe they need to be married despite she dislikes marriage (and for good reason, considering both parents have been married and divorced three times each).
Via peer pressure, Whitney continues to freak out until her friends take her to a sex shop where she buys sexy outfits and uses them to entice Alex. Now, this was comical, for sure, when she really goes all in to the sexy nurse concept by making Alex fill out insurance information. While I don’t go where the episode goes next (it doesn’t go where you think it will) the show was just ‘okay’. I will give the show a few more episodes to get a better grasp of the series, but it’s nothing special to right home about, at least,as of yet.
But what do YOU think, examiners?
