Lisa Kudrow is a true talent. I first rented this series and then decided I needed to own it. Lisa plays a "has been" who's has not come to grips with that fact. The key to everything she does and say is in her "spin". If she spins something bad just right, it's no longer bad. The best part of the series is watching the commentary the actors provide in a separate track on the DVD so the viewer can undersand more about what the characters were portraying. Very, very funny.
I've always been a fan of Ms. Kudrow's career...she's just so funny and human in all of her various roles...what she achieves in "The Comeback" is something hard to put into words exactly. Its the most intense series, comedy or drama I've ever watched. Truly a performance for the ages.
