This is only the intro to an article I’m working on that gives a detailed look at how I make a pourover pot of coffee. It’s a bit crazy but I’ll put it up anyway. Because there’s so many little tweaks one can make while brewing pourover coffee I try to cover all of the ones I’ve learned about so far.
but I have to ask about Tyler Perry’s sitcoms. What makes them comedy? The laugh track? The fact that they call it a comedy? Because there is no comedy going on in Tyler Perry’s Meet the Browns or Tyler Perry’s House of Payne. The drama that most episodes have injected into them is only a small part of the problem. The story moves along. This happens, then this happens, and then this happens and then this happens. Then it’s over. To be fair they end in a pretty generic way and almost get a sense that’s where most if the so-called writing takes place. Somebody asks, “How do we end this?” and then they do. I’m blown away by how many episodes I’ve seen without one laugh or one piece of crafted writing. Even the bad Disney Channel or ABC Family sitcoms have bad writing or cheesy jokes. Jokes that you find in 5-year-old’s joke book. Bad jokes are discernible from no jokes. That what Tyler Perry is perpetrating on his audience.
