Recently, one of my favorite websites Seriously OMG reported that The Trophy Wife had been picked up for the whole season. This was great news as I really like this show.
I know, I know you’re saying, “But Midwest Mo isn’t this a chick show?” The answer is a resounding kinda.
It’s more a show for everybody. It’s not just about how the 54 year old Bradley Whitford marries the much younger 34 year old Malin Akerman. Sure there are jokes about that, but the show doesn’t focus on that story line only. It’s more about how 3 families try to integrate with each other. Oh and Malin Akerman seems to always be wearing short shorts like in the picture above.
Let’s not kid ourselves, the supporting cast is what makes this show go. All the good shows have had a larger cast opening up the show to more possibilities. It’s not like The Michael J Fox show, which happens to focus on the overly self absorbed Michael J Fox. Yeah, that’s not getting old fast.
Last night, Nat Faxon whom I loved on Ben & Kate last year just started dating Michaela Watkins on the show. These 2 might just be the funniest 2 on the show. Hell, these 2 could have their own show and I watch it.
I’m not saying this is the best sitcom on right now as that would be either Brooklyn Nine-Nine or The Goldbergs. I am saying that it’s funny and you should add it to your watch list.
It airs on ABC Tuesdays at 8:30 CST.
