There’s a little bit of everything on tonight, including some series premieres and finales. It may be hump day, but it’s also the start of a busy but fun week for me. Today, I’ll be heading into the office for the first time in a long time, as they are having a Casino Night after work – I only go in for the important stuff. 🙂 Then tomorrow night, I plan to head into Cambridge to the Microsoft NERD Center for the annual Made in Massachusetts gaming industry party, and on Friday, I head back into Boston for the start of the PAX East gaming convention, where my brother will be hosting a panel. So while I’m trying to figure out when I’m actually going to watch all these new TV shows, here’s what we recommend you check out tonight.
Tonight, NBC kicks off yet another new comedy, Best Friends Forever. This sitcom follows soon-to-be-divorced Jessica (Jessica St. Clair), who moves back to Brooklyn looking for a new start. She moves in with her best friend Lennon (Lennon Parham) and Lennon’s boyfriend Joe (Luka Jones). The pilot has been available for a couple weeks online, including iTunes, Amazon, and Hulu. I really enjoyed the first episode. It had a lot of funny moments, and more importantly, I actually liked the characters and found myself invested in them. I think this small cast works really well together.
Like Bent, this could just be another 6-episode burn off show. I have slightly higher hopes, since NBC is only airing one episode a week of this one, pairing it with the new Betty White hidden camera show. However, it looks like Adam Pally (who plays Max on Happy Endings) was in the original version of the pilot, which means NBC has probably had this show sitting on the shelf for a while. I look forward to watching more of Best Friends Forever, even if we ultimately only get six episodes.
In tonight’s pilot, after being served with divorce papers, Jessica’s best friend, Lennon, persuades her to move back home to Brooklyn and into the apartment they used to share. The gals easily fall back into old habits, much to the dismay of Lennon’s live-in boyfriend, Joe.
Check it out tonight on NBC at 8:30/7:30c. Learn where to find episodes online of Best Friends Forever @ Clicker.
