Sitcoms provide a assemble of escapism that doesn’t take one to a magical macrocosm of potential, but instead to a basically unchanging, cozy environment with relatable courages actively engaged in low-stakes conflicts.

So what are the limits on the type of premise that can ground a sitcom? While most of the longest lasting sitcoms have simple set-ups involving friends or co-workers, streaming has led to more serialization and hence wider patch possibilities.

Does this means that the age of sitcoms has come to an end? Or has the category precisely broadened to admit enterings like Ricky Gervais’ After Life and Derek, Harmon& Roiland’s Rick& Morty, Greg Daniels’ Upload and Space Force, and Armando Iannucci’s Avenue 5?

In this low-stakes, feel-good discussion, Mark, Erica, and Brian too touch on the Parks& Recreation reunion special, Curb Your Enthusiasm, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Community, Modern Family, Red Oaks, The Simpsons, Last Man on Earth, WOOPS !, the discolour of Chuck Lorre, and more. Plus a quiz to guess which peculiar sitcom premises are real and which Mark made up.
