These two TV series are pretty different, but I couldn’t love them more.
If you enjoy Wet Hot America Summer (the movie), The State, or silly comedy in general, you will love Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp. The cast is great: Amy Poehler, Paul Rudd, Bradley Cooper, John Hamm and more. The plot is hilarious: It’s a prequel to the movie that gives some (really funny) back story. If you haven’t seen the movie, it’s basically a summer camp parody that most people will be able to relate to, even while laughing at the over-the-top way it’s portrayed. It’s stupid funny in the best possible way.
Sherlock Holmes is also really funny, but much more subtle. It’s a clever and quick modern adaptation of Arthur Conan Doyle’s stories. Benedict Cumberbatch (WTF crush worthy for sure) and Martin Freeman make a really good team as Sherlock and Dr. Watson and, even though the episodes are about 90 minutes long, my husband and I are completely rapt. If you haven’t watched this show yet, go do it now!
