If You're Not Watching "I'm Sorry" Then You Should Probably Start

This show is on TruTV so if I had to take a shot in the dark, I’d guess that not a ton of people know about it. I only use about five channels on my cable and TruTV certainly isn’t one of them and if I wasn’t alerted to this a week ago there’s a good chance I would have died, sooner than you’d expect, without ever hearing of this wonderful program.

I’m Sorry stars Andrea Savage (who also created, produces, and writes the show) who is fucking hysterical, you probably know her as Lauuuura Montez from Veep; Tom Everett Scott, I best remember him from Dead Man on Campus which is a movie I love but haven’t seen in a while; and Jason Mantzoukas, Rafi from The League. It also has cameos from a bunch of other recognizable stars.

The show itself isn’t exactly a groundbreaking idea: Andrea is a comedy writer married to Scott, who she likes to torture with inappropriate humor, and they live in LA. But, like how Always Sunny is often referred to as “Seinfeld on crack” this show is the standard family sitcom on crack. What do I mean? Well, I’ll tell you.

In episode 1 they discover the mom of their daughter’s friend is a prolific anal pornstar.

In episode 2 their daughter is a racist who won’t hang out with the black girl in class because she hates the color of her skin.

Episode 3 they watch Sound of Music and Andrea’s daughter asks what Nazis are then, once they’re explained, is scared to go to sleep at night because she thinks Hitler is under her bed.

Episode 4? Andrea’s dad, who is divorced from her mom, is in an open relationship.

The highlight of the show thus far, for me, comes in episode 5 when Tom tried to rape Andrea after they go see their therapist. That sounds dark but trust me, it’s hysterical.

The entire show is absolutely absurd, with one outrageous situation after another, many of them brought on by Andrea’s penchant for “tasteless,” according to everyone else, humor. She couldn’t be more perfect in the role and the whole show is just excellent. As I said, I heard about it last week and I’ve already watched every episode (five of them have aired, episode six is tomorrow) twice.

If you’re looking for something new this summer, make it I’m Sorry. I’ve never steered you wrong before and I’m not about to start now.
