Season/Episode: Season 1, Episode 1
Tonight, I watched the new show, Are You There Chelsea?. And I must admit, that my thoughts about what this show was going to be were not very good. In all honesty, I was worried. I really like Chelsea Handler and her work and I feel that this show could be a great thing for her.
The show is almost exactly like the book, from what I can remember of it, at least. I’m talking, some of the dialogue was even exact. Now this isn’t necessarily a bad thing. After all, the show is based after Chelsea Handler’s book, ‘Are you There Vodka, It’s Me Chelsea.’ I did like that they were able to sway away from the book a little bit as well.
I think throughout the show, I laughed a total of 5 times. Yes, I counted.
The show started off a little rocky, but by the end I feel like I mostly enjoyed it.
Laura Prepon’s (the woman who plays Chelsea) acting was, in my opinion, very well done. Of course, I did like her in ‘That 70’s Show’ also. Chelsea Handler, I was a little worried about at first … but she turned out to be not that bad.
Do I think that it’s going to do well on TV? Probably not. But it was pretty entertaining and it did get me to laugh a few times.
