Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
Somebody with a finely attuned sense of irony thought it would be fun for mega-successful Friends alumna Lisa Kudrow to star in a faux reality show about a former sitcom star making her TV comeback. She plays erstwhile It-Girl Valerie Cherish, first seen auditioning for what she believes will be a starring role, only to learn that she's to lend support to younger, hipper stars. Playing "Aunt Sassy" on a show called Room and Bored, she ...

Somebody with a finely attuned sense of irony thought it would be fun for mega-successful Friends alumna Lisa Kudrow to star in a faux reality show about a former sitcom star making her TV comeback. She plays erstwhile It-Girl Valerie Cherish, first seen auditioning for what she believes will be a starring role, only to learn that she's to lend support to younger, hipper stars. Playing "Aunt Sassy" on a show called Room and Bored, she struggles to keep her ego in check while at the same time grabbing as much attention as she can. Kudrow, one of Comeback's producers as well as its leading lady, obviously called in some favors: the 13-episode series was studded with guest stars -- Jay Leno, Marilu Henner, George Lopez, Kim Fields, and director James Burrows -- all playing themselves. The back-stabbing, take-no-prisoners showbiz milieu is replicated with reasonable fidelity, and Kudrow comes off extremely well as the insecure, insincere actress who never gets tired of jockeying for advantage. Snarky and very entertaining in its Hollywood insider way, The Comeback didn't last beyond its initial season, but after seeing this collection you may come to the conclusion -- as have others -- that it deserved another year.

    Painfully Funny!

    If you thought "Curb Your Enthusiasm" made you squirm in your seat, just watch this amazingly clever series. Lisa Kudrow is perfect as Valerie Cherish, a one-hit wonder who is so desperate for a comeback that she will do anything, including letting a reality-show film crew capture every painfully embarrassing moment - both at home and at work - in order to regain lost fame. Hilarious, painful and guffaw-inducing! It's a shame that there is only one season of this great show, but there is enough closure it the final episodes that you are not left holding the bag emotionally.
