Costume comedy

Love Downton Abbey?  The ol’ upstairs/downstairs drama?

How bout with some out-and-out silliness?

Add Another Period (Tuesdays, Comedy Central) to your viewing /DVR schedule.

The name alone makes me happy. But the cast — including Michael Ian Black, Thomas Lennon, Jason Ritter,  Christina Hendricks and a host of others I can’t name — is game for anything, which makes the show crazy funny.

From what I can tell on Imdb.com, there are lots of great cameos planned, too, so you look forward to that.

Or, you can if you watch.

I like her odds

Hank or Mark?

If you are a devotee of Parenthood, this quandary makes both perfect sense…and is perfectly frustrating.

parenthood hank and markWhen Sarah (Lauren Graham) and Mark (Jason Ritter) initially began dating, I was thrilled. Is there a cuter couple in TV-land? I challenge you to find one. Their engagement was the only logical conclusion.

Get them to the altar, tie the knot, add a jaunty bow.

But then Ray Romano joined the cast as Hank — crusty, blustery, more-age-appropriate Hank. He and Sarah made sense, too.  (Plus Mark suddenly turned into a woman…so really, what else could Sarah do?)

Now Mark has found his balls and is challenging Hank for Sarah’s hand — who will she pick? More importantly, who do you want her to choose?
