THE BEST OF MODERN COMEDIC TELEVISION

CRITERIA
ALL SHOWS PREMIERED A NEW EPISODE IN THE PAST 5 YEARS SHOWN CRITICAL ACCLAIM OVER THE YEARS NOTEWORTHY AWARD WINS/NOMINATIONS

THE BEST REPRESENTATIVE OF THE MOKUMENTARY SUBGENRE IN COMEDIC TELEVISION CURRENTLY REMAKE OF A BRITISH TELEVISION SERIES OF THE SAME NAME OBSERVATION COMEDY OF A TYPICAL OFFICE SETTING, ONLY IN A OVER THE TOP FORMAT. STEPING STONE FOR MANY GREAT COMEDIC ACTORS LIKE ED HELMS, RAINN WILSON, AND STEVE CARELL. THE OFFICE RAN ON NBC FOR 9 YEARS UNTIL ITS FINALE IN 2013, IN THAT TIME IT WAS NOMINATED FOR 42 PRIMETIME EMMYS, AND WON 5. THE US VERSION OUTRAN ITS COUNTERPART BY 7 SEASONS, BUT THE BIGGEST FLAW IN THE SERIES IS THE FACT THAT IT WAS ON FOR SO LONG. 9 YEARS OF BEING SET IN THE SAME OFFICE CAUSES THE SITUATIONS AND JOKES TO BECOME A BIT TOO SLOW AND REPETITIVE, AT ITS BEST THE OFFICE WAS FAR FROM ORDINARY AND, EVEN IF ITS MOST-REWARDING DAYS WERE IN THE REAR-VIEW MIRROR, DESERVED TO FINISH ON TOP. BRIAN LOWERY, VARIETY. HTTP://VARIETY.COM/2013/TV/REVIEWS/THE-OFFICE-FINALE1200482413/

THE OFFICE

THE BEST REPRESENTATION OF THE MODERN SITCOM THE SERIES IS A STORY TOLD BY A FATHER TO HIS KIDS ABOUT HIS YOUNG ADULT LIFE AND WHAT WOULD LEAD UP TO THEM BEING BORN. THE SHOWS COMEDY STEMS FROM THE CURRENT GENERATION OF LATE 20 AND EARLY 30 YEAR OLDS, AND THE RIDICULOUS UNWRITTEN RULES OF DATING, I.E. NOT CALLING A GIRL YOU LIKE FOR 3 DAYS AFTER GETTING HER PHONE NUMBER. VERY STRONG IN ITS ABILITY TO PROPER REPRESENT AN ACTUAL INTERACTION BETWEEN LONG-TERM FRIENDS AND HAVING ONE OF THE GREATEST USES OF CONTINUITY IN ALL SITCOM. THE SHOW GAVE US GREAT ACTORS LIKE JASON SEGEL, AND RETURNED NOSTALGIC ACTORS ALYSON HANNIGAN AND NEIL PATRICK HARRIS. HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER RUNS ON CBS SINCE 2005, AND IS PREPARING FOR ITS SERIES FINALE AT THE END OF THIS MONTH. IN ITS 9 YEAR RUN THE SHOW WON 9 EMMYS AND HAS HAD AN AVERAGE NIELSEN RATING BETWEEN 8.21 AND 9.67 MILLION VIEWERS PER SEASON. THE FLAW OF THE SHOW IS ITS OVERUSE OF RUN ON JOKES, CAUSING THE HUMOR TO BECOME A BIT TOO PREDICTABLE FROM TIME TO TIME. THAT SAID THE SERIES STILL HAS BROUGHT MUCH ENJOYMENT AND FUN TO IT.

HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER

THE BEST ANIMATED COMEDY STILL ON TELEVISION NEVER BACKS DOWN FROM A TOPIC AND WILL DO WHATEVER IT CAN TO MAKE SOMETHING FUNNY. THE SHOW IS THE STORY OF 4 YOUNG BOYS LIVING IN COLORADO TRYING TO DEAL WITH THE INSANE WORLD AROUND THEM,. SOUTH PARKS COMEDY IS THE BEST FORM OF OBSERVATIONAL HUMOR, THE Y WILL TAKE ANYTHING THAT IS IN THE NEWS AND MAKE A JOKE ABOUT IT IN THE BEST WAY POSSIBLE. THE CREATORS AND VOICES OF THE SERIES MATT STONE AND TREY PARKER, MAKE EACH EPISODE FROM SCRATCH ONE WEEK BEFORE THEY AIR ALLOWING FOR CONSTANTLY FRESH AND TOPICAL HUMOR

SOUTH PARK

THE SERIES HAS BEEN RUNNING FOR 17 SEASONS ON COMEDY CENTRAL AND SHOWS NO SIGNS OF STOPPING.
SOUTH PARK HAD BEEN NOMINATED 10 TIMES FOR AN EMMY FOR BEST ANIMATED PROGRAM AND WON 4, AND WAS ALSO NOMINATED FOR AN OSCAR FOR BEST ORIGINAL SONG FROM THEIR FEATURE LENGTH FILM IN 1999. SOUTH PARK WHILE BEING FUNNY AND ORIGINAL IS CRITICIZED FOR BEING TOO RAUNCHY IN ITS HUMOR, WHICH IS TRUE BUT MOST OF THE TIME THEY ALWAYS DO IT TO GET A POINT ACROSS IN ORDER FOR PEOPLE TO UNDERSTAND THE RIDICULOUSNESS OF SOME ISSUES OR BETTER HANDLE OTHERS. SOUTH PARK GIVES PEOPLE AWAY TO REFLECT ON THE WORLD AROUND THEM WITH THEIR HUMOR AND THAT IS WHY IT IS THE BEST COMEDY ON TELEVISION.

MARTIAL ARTS: 5/10

ANIMATION BUDGET WAS THE MAIN HURDLE IN HOW BATMAN FOUGHT OFF HIS FOES AND DUE TO THE SPEED THAT EPISODES WERE PRODUCED THERE WAS NOT ENOUGH TIME OR MONEY TO SHOW HIS FULL SKILLS, THOUGH HIS ABILITY IS NOTED

PREDATOR MISSION SEGMENTS ALLOW FOR THE PLAYER TO UTILIZE THE FEAR OF BATMAN AND HIS ABILITY TO STALK CRIMINALS TO TERRIFY FOES AND TAKE ON CHALLENGES THAT SHOULD BE BEYOND HIS ABILITY TO TAKE ON IN A FIGHT THROUGH THE MISDIRECTION

TECHNOLOGY: 9/10

HE WIELDS GADGETRY IN COMBAT, CALLS UPON INFORMATION AND ANALYSIS FROM THE BATCAVE IN A MANNER EQUAL TO THE COMIC BOOKS, BUT UNFORTUNATELY IS FOUND TO LACK IN SHOWING HIS ABILITIES IN THE FIELD OF RESEARCH

DETECTIVE SKILLS: 10/10

CRIME SCENE ANALYSIS AND RESEARCH ON SUBJECTS ALLOWS FOR BATMAN TO FIND HIS OBJECTIVES IN GAME WHILE SHOWCASING HIS DETECTIVE SKILLS

WILLPOWER: 4/10

DUE TO IT BEING A VIDEOGAME, DEEP CHARACTER MOTIVATION EXPLORATIONS WOULD SEVERELY DETRACT FROM THE GAMEPLAY, SO IT WAS NOTICEABLY SPARSE OVER THE COURSE OF THE THREE TITLES
