'Friends' co-creator's new show 'Georgia' opens on YouTube

After co-creating "Friends" with Bala's David Crane, you'd figure Broomall's Marta Kauffman could probably take her new show, "Georgia," anywhere she liked.

'Friends' co-creator's new show 'Georgia' opens on YouTube


After co-creating "Friends" with Bala's David Crane, you'd figure Broomall's Marta Kauffman could probably take her new show, "Georgia," anywhere she liked.

She's chosen YouTube, though, for the three-episode premiere (which run all together looks a lot like a pilot episode) and as of Monday, it's live on the video-sharing site's WIGS scripted channel.

Mary Elizabeth Ellis ("It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia") plays Georgia, a "yogic healer," who's engaged to Michael (Harold Perrineau, "Lost," "Sons of Anarchy") but seems to be dragging her feet about their coming wedding.

Each of the three episodes -- they run no more than seven or eight minutes apiece -- is built around a different client of the therapist (who, happily, is a lot more grounded than the one former "Friends" star Lisa Kudrow plays in Showtime's "Web Therapy").

Ellis is charming and Perrineau, I'm happy to say, is a lot less scary than the character he's playing this season in "Sons of Anarchy." Three episodes didn't seem nearly enough, which is about the nicest thing I can say about any web series daring enough to be premiering against the networks' fall lineups.

About this blog
Yes, I'm a TV critic. But I've always believed my job is less about thumbs -- up or down -- and more about the conversation. Because the more choices we have, the fewer people in our lives know what we're talking about when we say, "Did you see that?" And that's when television really starts to get interesting.
