The Comeback was a little slice of TV brilliance that came and went all too quickly. Valerie Cherish is fading sit-com star. She had a minor hit in the late 80s - I'm It. The Comeback follows the "It" girl as she tries to make a comeback and realizes her hairstyle may be the same, but Hollywood isn't. The show, shot like a reality TV show, is a parody of everything in Hollywood from actors, publicists, the hair people to reality tv itself. I found Valerie not to be the most likeable character at the start but after watching all thirteen episodes I began to understand her and root for her to succeed.
The humor is in the same style as The Office - those awkward moments that make you both cringe and giggle. It definitely was ahead of its time and it's a shame it wasn't given more time to grow.
