If you go back to March 18th, the only thing that critics and bloggers were talking about was that Better off Ted, a new ABC comedy that came out of nowhere is the funniest sitcom since Arrested Development. Now on June 23rd at 9:30/8:30c, that comedy miracoulously renewed for a second year starting in January 2010 with Scrubs, is back, with 7 ALL NEW EPISODES. That is three and a half hours of pure comic gold and the first half hour is no exception. It chronicles the journey of Ted (Jay Harrington) trying to become one of the workers and not management. He takes his angry out from his daughter Rose being away with her mom in a underground medievil compettion. It is hilarious thanks most in part to Phil and Lem who just deliver the laughs and never stop. But the side story is still as funny as ever. Linda tries to be nicer to Veronica (Portia de Rossi better than ever) by driving her home but ends up getting her drunk and learning her darkest secrets that both of them regret later.
If you were ever a fan of the show in the first six episodes you will welcome the return and if you have not watched, I beg you to give it a try because you will not be disappointed. Better off Ted is a rare comedy, one that takes real issues but you would not know that they were real because it is presented in a comic masterpiece. By the way, if you thought the Better off Ted pilot was hilarious check out September 23rd when ABC premieres a new comedy Modern Family which I think gave Better off Ted a run for its money. More on that later.
