Good comedy - entertaining - never flat
7 November 2012 | by andrewcbzSee all my reviews

Put two women together in a comedy and your looking for trouble in the laugh department. Most turn to the amusing, then the profound comedy performances like Rhoda or Laverne and Shirley. They start out as something new and funny and soon turn to stone. But Jenny never gets the chance to 'jump the shark' it only lasted seventeen episodes. It was very up beat. It also had story threads that lasted more than two episodes. It had George Hamilton playing a version of himself in a knowing way. At a casual glance this show would look like the same old schtick comedy being pumped out by the studios in a formulaic way. But that's a wrong estimation. I taped a few episodes on video and regularly watch them again and again. Jenny McCarthy does pull her face a lot, but I like that. Face pulling by pretty girls can not be done enough. Comedy from women usually means trying to stay dignified while under fire. Too many such comedies exist. Jenny... is refreshing even fifteen years later. The only downside to this show was the title. It doesn't lend itself to a search in this digital age. Like looking up a film called '9' it's damn hard to find out any info about it. 10,000 references to jenny out there. The show was axed prematurely, never given enough exposure. Hopefully it will be released on DVD.
