English entertainment that tickled TV viewers in 2013!

MUMBAI: Life would be so boring without TV, ain’t it? As we bid adieu to the year 2013, we look at the comedy shows that kept us entertained throughout the year.


Modern Family

The show, presented in the mockumentary style, has become almost complacent in its greatness. The writing and acting are so consistent and good that one can’t think of missing the episodes. It’s almost disappointing that the show can’t seem to get any better. But that’s the trouble when you set such a high bar of quality.


The Big Bang Theory

Many awards have been given to Jim Parsons (and for good reason). The supporting performances are just as good. Simon Helberg has kept his comedy while becoming far less creepy now that he’s married and has also been to the outer space. Raj’s romantic woes were a surprisingly serious spiral of depression all season. And the women have been fantastic, especially when they spend time together. There’s a good reason for this to be one of the most-watched comedy on TV.


2 Broke Girls

In its third season, the life of the two waitresses in their mid twenties—Max Black and Caroline Channing , seems to have become more interesting. From the selection of the cast to the writing is simply outstanding. In addition to Kat Denning’s brilliant comic timing, her character’s chemistry with Caroline is worthy of a mention.


Two & A Half Men

Finally, the show went back to its old days with good jokes. Walden finally turned into a fan character, while Jon Cryer’s remains irrestible as Alan.


How I Met Your Mother

After a lackluster season eight, HIMYM rebounds magnificently with this ninth season. Criston Meloti as The Mother is perfectly cast, and adding her to the cast is a shake-up that the show desperately needed.
