The Mr. Sunshine Practical Joke

March 2, 2011 in Comedy, Entertainment, Television

imageHave you noticed yourself thinking the phone was ringing or that your neighbor’s phone was ringing while you watch the newest hit show Mr. Sunshine?  Matthew Perry plays Ben Donovan, the self-involved manager of a second-rate San Diego sports arena.

The show sort of has the Chandler we’ve all come to love, only he’s very self-involved, which would make him the antithesis to the Chandler Bing character we appreciated in Friends.  But, he has the same wit and he certainly has mostly all of his life together except, of course, for the one thing that seems to always matter most, he has no one to share it.

Back to my original question, if you are hearing a phone ring every time you watch the show, that’s because you are.  I think they do it on purpose.  Of course, they pass through the office space quite a bit and that would be a logical reason for the phone ringing sound bite…all the time.  But, I have never noticed this in other “office” scenes in shows.  It rarely happens in The Office, and when it does, it’s part of the scene.
