It's interesting and funny and agonizing and illuminating to know what happens before you get that first annoying animated promo for a new show. For fans of: Undeclared, Studio 60.

The TV Set is a little wonder of a movie, as smart and sad and true as any comedy I've seen this year.

Honestly, isn't it a little late to be bemoaning sleazy reality TV?

Is it a travesty? A farce? Utterly preposterous? Exactly.

This very inside but modestly amusing show-business satire doesn't seem too far-fetched or exaggerated.
May 10, 2007
The appalling sausage factory that produces what we see on network TV is nicely skewered in The TV Set, an engaging if not exactly edgy comedy that exists to restate the obvious.

David Duchovny, Justine Bateman, Ioan Gruffudd and Sigourney Weaver star in this biting look at the creatively draining world of TV sitcom production.

Savage little morality tale.
May 4, 2007
While some of the gags may be a little too inside baseball, anyone who has seen Broadcast News or reads the occasional issue of 'Entertainment Weekly' will have no problem understanding and enjoying Kasdan's chomp on the hand that once fed him.
May 4, 2007
Yes, it's funny because it's true. But it's also sad for just the same reason.
April 28, 2007
Darkly funny.
