News & Interviews for Mom: Season 3
It would be very easy for the remaining producers of multi-cam to leave that stuff to their more fashionable counterparts and just stick to telling jokes. Mom, thankfully, is a strong reminder of just how elastic this 64-year-old format is.
Of course, as fans of CBS' increasingly nuanced comedy have come to expect, there's a gut punch before the punchline.
It remains a throwback to '70s and '80s comedies like "All in the Family," "Taxi," and even "Cheers," which took their characters seriously enough to be comfortable with purely dramatic scenes, which in turn only makes the laughter feel more potent.
With a few ballsy plot lines under its belt and an assured step in the right direction in the season three premiere, Mom may come off as occasionally familiar in its formatting, but content wise it feels downright groundbreaking.
Still, even with the admirable mix of laughs and lumps in the throat that this latest installment elicited, it's not difficult to understand why the show hasn't become as addictive as CBS would surely like it to be.
