The Comeback

The creators Michael Patrick King and Lisa Kudrow is deriving from an already established formula few steps ahead only to not end up with a definite answer. This Eric Rohmer-ness part of the series is what I adore. The rickety chair that this world hinges upon is, against all odds, balanced. Not fair, not sugar-coated, nor surrounded in the pathology that its characters tries to suppress, it is an adequate justice sentenced. The mockumentary theme has been around for a while and reasoning its way in, to the window that is framed as a part of narrative has to be and is pragmatic in here. Addition to that, the writing, the conversations, the small talks, is something that swoops us from the very beginning of the show.

It remains a reality show from head to toe for sure. Every last bit of its cookiness is sprinkled in the sneak peek of show business as an excuse of the character's nature and remains true to its tone throughout this exhaustive journey. It is exhausting, because it is intended to, plus following a character- literally- for this long ought to wear out the formulaic structure it bases the entire series upon. Enters Lisa Kudrow. Her overly hyped narcissistic version of attention seeking celebrity is a gold mine for any actor.

And carving out this character herself, she lives up to the vision she and her co-workers have imagined exceedingly making her the best asset of this show. And if the first season suffered the cliched diseases of such genre, the second one is a polished reboot that overcomes the limitation by first and foremostly dividing the perspective of her journey. Where actually then, supporting characters come under the limelight they deserved completing the series in a whole; The Comeback title stays meta.

Valerie Gets What She Really Wants

The title might denote to the character but it signifies the audience. One of the rare finales that serves the purpose teased from the very beginning and as a result the viewers tear up for more as they are led to this emotional taxi ride. What's fascinating is how mythological these characters are treated and how someone's uttered words are echoed so gracefully in those last moments.
