Coolest! I Hate Being Single is now listed under “Funny” on the Tumblr Directory along side the best and brightest comedians and blogs I’ve ever heard of. For example Aziz Ansari, Rob Delaney, Hodgman, Charlie Todd and more. I’m honored to be placed here! Thank you tumblr staffers and followers of the show! The ihbs family is growing by the minute and just in time for the big finale tomorrow. Catch up on all the episodes if you haven’t yet… http://ihatebeingsingleseries.com
I recently caught this documentary on HBO. I’d heard a lot about it through interviews on podcasts earlier this year . It was realllly interesting. If you’re a fan of TV, comedy, sitcoms, writing, directing, communication, culture shock, social behavior, etc it’s worth seeing.
It’s funny that I never considered Everybody Loves Raymond to be very high on the scale of relatable, realistic, naturalistic, or anything other than a big broad family sitcom. I don’t think I’ve ever watched a whole episode. Probably because I stopped watching family sitcoms when I became a teenager and didn’t relate to the premise, but Phil Rosenthal, the creator has to convince Russian TV producers/directors/actors that being truthful, realistic, and honest is at the core of the comedy of the show, and I find that very relatable!
Sometimes Phil is a little hammy for the cameras, but really it’s amazing to see how much resistance and how hard it is to communicate/translate the ideas of comedy, especially across the world.
