Time To Check out "Accidentally on Purpose"
If you have not checked out "Accidentally on Purpose" yet, the re-airing of the pilot tonight on CBS is a good reason to give it a shot. Jenna Elfman and Jon Foster are extremely likable leads and the show does a great job of letting us get to know the characters beyond the shows premise. When I first watched the pilot, though I enjoyed it, I worried the premise could bog the show down. I had little need to worry. Series creator Claudia Lonow and the writers have done a great job of fleshing out the main characters as well as the series supporting cast which include Grant Show, Ashley Jensen, Lennon Parham and Nicolas Wright.
The writing has gotten crisper and more on point with each episode and last weeks episode which included a hilarious 'facebook' discussion would have had anyone who has a fb 'friend' who likes to continually send out cyber kisses and hugs laughing out loud. Lets hope CBS gives the show a full season. It is hard for a tv sit-com to win me over. 'Accidentally on Purpose' has done that with likable characters, great acting and spot on writing. The fact that Jon Foster is so adorable is just an added bonus!
