Mr. Sunshine is A-Okay in My Book
I have a confession to make: I like Matthew Perry.
I didn't watch much of friends, but I think that Perry is a boffo dramatic actor; I enjoyed his turn in "Studio 60 On The Sunset Strip a lot, as well as other shots on other shows.
Finding out he's a self-deprecating abstinent drunk made him just that much better in my book.
But if he were doing a shit show, I'd admit it.
Mr. Sunshine, Wed. at 9:30 on ABC, ain't no shit show.
No laugh track. Some larger-than-life characters, but no "ovber-the-top" feel.
Funny, but not too.
I dig it.
Oh, yeah -- Perry created the show [or the idea] and exec produces. So he's invested.
