Allen Gregory serves as both a working title and pun: Allegory, with several significant connotations. The show provides allegories based on contemporary social discourse and commentary. As such, some of the jokes will go over most of the audience's heads. However, for those in the audience aware of the implications of social sitcom scripts, "Allen Gregory" provides subtle (and not so subtle) nudges regarding gay marriage, political dichotomy, gender disaggregation, and other sociological factors. Each joke is smartly written, with close attention paid to both comedic transitions and subtext of material. As a result, Allen Gregory is worth watching for both its simple punchlines and greater sociological implications.
