I didn't realize how much I missed this fantastic show until I purchased the 1st season on iTunes and re-watched all the episodes in just 2 nights' sittings. "Lovespring International" is one of those classic shows like "Seinfeld," or "The Office," or "Reno 911!" that you may not really like or even "get" if you just watch one or 2 episodes in isolation. Instead, you have to really get into the rhythm of the show over several episodes, understand the habitual and hysterical quirks of its characters, and appreciate how much care and work the actors of this sitcom put into their roles. Much of the show, like "Reno 911!," is semi-improvised--even though the cast may have been given a basic outline script for each story, many of the individual lines and actions of the characters are solely due to the skills of the actors portraying them. If you're a fan of "Reno 911!" on Comedy Central (another semi-improvised sitcom) than you'll even notice that the shows have not just a sense of humor in common, but even some of the same actors and writers. Add to that formidable creative talent the undeniable greatness of actress Jane Lynch (perhaps best known for her parts in Christopher Guest movies like "Best in Show" and other blockbuster roles such as in "The 40 year Old Virgin") in the lead role and the producing talents of a certain male star of "Will & Grace," and you have a show full of rich possibilities, seemingly destined for success.
Alas, it seems viewers and the network that carried the show, Lifetime TV, haven't given this comedy the chance it deserves. As much as I love my Golden Girls and Frasier reruns, Lifetime TV, I beg you to rerun this show, to give it more chances to hook viewers. The network only aired each episode twice, maybe three times at the very most, and has completely removed it from its roster since the end of last year. For you, the viewers, I sincerely hope that if Lifetime gives the show another viewing or 2 that you really give "Lovespring International" a chance and come to enjoy it as much as I do. I really want to see a second season of this comedic masterpiece!!!
