I've watched this show probably 10-12 times already...

... And it has lost nothing. It's so flipping funny. There really isn't nearly enough comedy like it on TV anymore.

Anyone else think Katie was poorly cast?

I’m a big Tina Fey fan. Binged 30 Rock and Kimmy Schmidt multiple times and figured I’d give Great News a try.

I love the writing. I love the characters. But personally I think Katie was a poor casting choice. The delivery of her jokes never land. The writing is great, it’s not the joke, it’s just her delivery.

Anyone else feel this way? Pretty surprising because 30 Rock and Kimmy Schmidt had such great casting. And everyone else in the cast of Great News is absolutely great.

Great News Reminds Me Of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt

No idea why but a lot of this show and it's mannerisms remind me of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.

Portia reminds me so much of Jacqueline Voorhees. Katherine reminds me of a toned down Kinmy.

UKS came out in 2015 and GN in 2017 but I see so many overlaps such as the music types and in some of the characters albeit in GN they're significantly toned down unlike in UKS.

Anyone else see this or just me?

I decided not to start watching Great News because I knew I’d be sad that it was cancelled; I changed my mind, binged it, now I’m sad that it was cancelled. Why did I do this to myself?

I need more. It’s great. Is there really no chance!?

hmm... not even a 1000 members here

I recently started watching this show on Netflix and I LOVE it. Sure, it's humor ans setting makes it come off like a less talented 30 Rock cousin, but there's a reason that show was so successful and this show, from what I've seen has that same quality. Almost done the 1st season I can jonestly say I wish this show would get resurrected from one of the streaming services

When I was in college, I made my own way, giving tug jobs down at the docks.... You know, tugging the boats out of the port with my hands!

I miss this show. What are your favourite quotes?

What are you watching now that is similar?

Besides reruns of Great News, what show(s) fills the gaping hole this show left in your heart?

I know I watch America Says almost every night to get my GMH fix.

I was enjoying Mr. Mayor until it was also canceled after only 2 seasons. It was really starting to pick up in s2 and I even said that it was my new Great News. Besides that I haven't found a similar sitcom.

Btw, was the Saved by the Bell reboot/sequel thing any good? That's the same writer correct? I never watched the original so I had no interest but if it was anything like Great News then I could try it.

Portia

Portia's character has kinda surprised me. I thought she would be shown like really vain, narcissistic pe rson detached from reality (like Jenna from 30 rock) but she is actually nicer to Katie than Katie is to her. She helps her out and lets her hang out even though Katie pass snide comments about her fluff piece.

She also helps Chuck during shooting match in studio and keep him from resigning.

Carol isn’t a good mother

I started watching the series a while ago, I’ve binged a few Episodes and the one thing I cannot stand is that carol really isn’t a good mother. Most of the time she does stuff for Katie because in her head Katie needs to be this or that. Like when Katie only applied to one college and it was Harvard because carol wouldn’t let her apply anywhere else because in carols mind Katie was made for Harvard, that mentality right there is extremely toxic.

I just got to the episode where Carole’s mom wants a divorce and typical carol makes it all about her, her ego is so infatuated with herself.

Also why did they make her dumb? If this was an old father he would be wise and knowledgeable. But because it’s an old lady let’s make her dumb, thoughtless, maker her hate her husband and so much more.

Honestly carol is so horrible she makes Ross Geller look good from Friends. Not to mention Katie can’t even live a normal life, why? Because her literally crazy mother always has to have Katie’s life revolve around carol.

Always meddles in her love life instead of it naturally happening. Then Greg’s girlfriend rocks up, Cat. And what does toxic mother of the year do? She ends her daughter into actual pain because she votes for cat and Gregg even though toxic carol knows Gregg likes Katie. Worst mother character ever played, including all the toxic moms from dynasty new and old.

YIKES

I’ll let you finish Kanye!

So I just found out this was based on a real thing apparently. I just thought the whole quote was from Great News. I have learned a lot of things from GN.

Favorite episode?

Out of the wonderful 2 seasons do you have a most favorite episode?

The episode where Chuck becomes best friends with Portia’s football player fiancé always hits the spot. All the pool themed antics and young boy shenanigans those 2 get up to are just so funny! Really any Chuck centric episode will be strong but this one for me is peak Great News!

Great news is a Great show!

I had never heard anything about this show but it popped on Netflix so I gave it a try. It took a few episodes to get into it but now I love it, Katherine is a relatable lead and I am English so love seeing Americans make fun of us via her boss. The mum is abit annoying but I guess thats the point of her character and chuck is consistantly funny.

Shades of 30 rock not withstanding, and thats no bad thing, its my new favourite show and I will be sad when it ends!
