Did anyone else catch the Stella series premier on Comedy Central this week?
Stella features the comedic trio of Michael Ian Black, Michael Showalter and David Wain as three characters whose travels through everyday life are unlike anything else on television. With a perfect blend of cleverness and absurdity, Stella satirizes everyday experiences like finding an apartment, hanging out at a coffee shop, going camping and trying to meet women. What are common, normal situations for most people quickly end up in the most unexpected realms when these guys are at the helm.
Even though they're always dressed in suits, their maturity level doesn't always fit their attire. These modern day Marx Brothers spread their non-sensical comedy to everyone they meet and everywhere they go. Their sensibilities are tinged with both sarcasm and wit; the characters, and the show in general, find a way to be both smart and sophomoric.
I have been anxiously awaiting this show for ages- I was a huge fan of The State back in the day and will basically watch anything featuring former castmembers.
The show wasn't exactly what I expected, but I've watched the pilot episode twice now, and it's really growing on me. There were definitely some hilarious moments, and frankly I'm just really happy to see these guys all together, and on my TV.
