à la Seinfeld, The Hangover Chronicles is based on the theory of ‘being about nothing.’ But without the bald (badum dum psssh) humour of George Kastanza, and written by a recent theatre graduate* , The Hangover Chronicles tries and fails to be somewhat funny. I encourage you to read it out of pity.

*A.k.a somebody who has sweet fuck all to do.

I love that she eats on screen—a lot—and it’s so normal that she doesn’t even have to say a bunch of jokey punchlines about it. Liz Lemon is perhaps a good counterexample here—she’s also often portrayed eating, but whether it’s a donut or a pizza or a piece of cheese, the food is always the punchline to a joke. Because watching a cute woman eat a lot is just HILARIOUS to us, right? But Elaine, she just walks into Jerry’s kitchen and starts eating cereal—or ice cream, or muffins—while talking about the weather or about how she hates her roommate or about toupees. Not one word about the food. It’s almost as though she’s just eating because she’s hungry or even—gasp!—because she simply wants to. This is maybe the healthiest portrayal of a woman’s appetite I’ve ever seen on screen.
