There are a couple of half hour comedies I've been watching lately that deserve a recommend. First is The Good Place with Kristen Bell. It's about a woman who accidentally gets sent to Heaven and is trying to stay there. There's a lot of talk about ethics and morals, and later in the season they get into identity and what makes you a person. But it's still funny as hell. Second is Mom, with Allison Janney. Three generations of disfunctional women getting through daily life. It's by the guy who did Big Bang Theory (Chuck Lorre) but I'm really impressed by the maturity with which they approach the subject matter. Most of the time it's "bad people trying to do good" and that's when it's at its strongest.
