Steve Carell And Rashida Jones Hit A Home Run With ‘Angie Tribeca’

I know Nancy Carell has something to do with the show. Like she might be a producer or something right along with her husband Steve. But, mentioning her name in the title would have made it too long. So…

Angie Tribeca is hilarious comedy reminiscent of Leslie Nielsen in Police Squad!, or even Leslie Nielsen in Naked Gun. Quite possibly the humor of Leslie Nielsen in Airplane!

It’s the kind of fast paced humor with jokes coming out of nowhere. The thousand jokes per minute type of comedy that makes viewers laugh the whole time and miss jokes while they’re cackling like a kangaroo in a boxing match.

In the pilot episode, there is a running scene where the guy they are chasing is jogging. Detective Geils is sprinting around corners and flipping over obstacles like a parkour pro. Tribeca has to staple a paper suit together to get in the race and ends up getting the guy. That’s the kind of humor you can expect and that barely scratches the surface.

The best joke though is that they are in Season 2, or so they would have you think. But if you follow television, you might be thinking, “When did Season 1 run?”

The Pilot appears to be scheduled to run on January 25, 2016. That’s right! Do the math and you realize that Season 1 was introduced in the Binge Marathon that started January 17, 2016. Your mind is not playing tricks on you. TBS is!

With a 25 hour marathon scheduled and the entire season ending just a little over 4 hours into it, you’ll have plenty of chances until 10 pm on the 18th to catch all of the episodes of Season 1. This has to be the most unique idea in television history. Is Season 2 for real? Has it been made yet? Or is this just a really interesting gimmick to get comedy enthusiasts and Rashida Jones fans like me interested in a show to see if there will even be a Season 2.

Stay tuned for my first installment of Steve Carell And Rashida Jones Hit A Home Run With ‘Angie Tribeca’. It should be a good article if you like reading that kind of stuff.
