The TV Set (2006, Jake Kasdan)

"The story of a TV pilot as it goes through the Network TV process of casting, production and finally airing."

This might be one of the hardest opinions of a film that I have tried to write out. Why? I just don't have all.

The TV Set is a good movie. Its not great,its not bad, its nor really good. It's just good.

It just doesn't have a very memorable storyline or characters. It doesn't leave you feeling much. It doesn't have any big laughs or any emotional moments. It also doesn't have any great performances.

It's just....there. It entertains enough for 90 minutes. The satire is cynical and fun for the first couple of minutes but that also just goes from great satire to just ok satire to just over the top satire. Some characters don't connect just right and others fail to connect to the audience at all.

I cant bad mouth the film but I also cant praise it for anything. Its just "ok"
