In one of those cases when you’re jumping all over the Internet and not quite sure how you found something, I found this… Nobody’s Watching, a new show from the WB… and one that will probably never make it to our shores.
Now I’m not certain that this show is actually out there and in production, but on YouTube the pilot episode is currently available in three parts. Check out part one and the links from there to the other two.
The basic plot line is let’s make a show, about making a sit-com, and let it appear kind of like a blend between reality TV and a real scripted show. Add a couple of relatively cute guys, a hot chick and another hot chick dressed up to be not so hot, but with potential to let her hair down in later episodes.
The show has some funny moments, and if you have a spare half-hour it makes for a good diversion.
This is definately a like it or hate it show. On the plus side the appearance of Tom Bosley (Howard Cunningham – Happy Days) and Alan Thicke (Dr. Seaver – Growing Pains) add to the show and of course allude to the possibility of many, many appearances of past sit-com stars. They “ask for” and get the set for the Central Perk from Friends, complete with Gunther so you never know, maybe they’ll walk on that set one day and the whole cast will be there.
