I know that the Writers Strike is almost, allegedly, over. And I know that’s a good thing for this tired nation. Why? Welcome to The Captain.
I had the misfortune of watching about, ah, 5 minutes of this show last week. The premise: somewhat snarky, somewhat hip white guy writer is down on his luck and gets to move into The Captain, an apartment building with (ready?) a bunch of wacky neighbors! Or as the CBS site says, “WELCOME TO THE CAPTAIN is a comedy about a wildly eclectic group of people whose lives are intertwined through the place they all call home, a fabled Hollywood apartment building.”
I’ve got to say that with a show like this, it’s like the writers weren’t even trying. What works better on sitcoms than the wacky neighbor? Try dozens of them. Imagine! Unlimited scripts! Amazing!
I really can’t decide if a bad reality show is worse than a bad sitcom.
