"Help" Yourself By Skipping This One
You know a comedy is bad if at the end of it you ask yourself, “Was that supposed to be funny?”
That’s what happened to me Tuesday night after watching “Help Me Help You.” The show was so not funny, I don’t even know what to say.
Ted Danson is Dr. Bill Hoffman, a group therapist. He manages to solve his group’s problems, but he can’t deal with his own separation—especially when he finds out his wife is dating.
And that’s really all I can say other than to say once again that it’s just not funny.
Jane Kaczmarek, as Bill’s estranged wife, is the only bright spot in the show; but she totally deserves better. There would be possibilities with the therapy group if any of those characters were worth caring about.
My advice is to help yourself by skipping this one. There’s no charge for the session.
