In the US: Wednesdays, 9.30/8.30c, ABC
Imagine there's a heaven. More exactly, imagine there's a TV heaven, a TV heaven where all your favourite actors can go to when their existing series end. Wouldn't that be wonderful?
Well, ABC has found it and it's called Mr Sunshine. It stars:
- Matthew Perry! Chandler from Friends! Yey!
- Allison Janney! CJ from The West Wing! Yey!
- Andrea Anders! The woman who lived next door to Joey on Joey and was in that Better Off Ted thing! Yey!
- Jorge Garcia! Hurley from Lost! Yey!
How awesome is that?
Of course, it would also be great if TV heaven was a good show as well. Fortunately, Mr Sunshine is actually a very good half hour of fun, in which Perry - the somewhat grumpy Mr Sunshine of the title - has to try to manage a San Diego sports centre, juggling the constant demands of his very sunny best friend, his often high boss (Janney) and his friend (with benefits) Andrea Anders.
Cue the trailer - just imagine it has Jorge Garcia instead of the old Latino guy instead.
