TV Review: The Comedians, 1.10, “Misdirection”



“Since premiering in April, The Comedians has leaned on the generational gap separating its two stars for drama and mostly left their differences explicitly unspoken. A few episodes, like “Billy’s Birthday,” address the divide while remaining non-specific; it’s an age disparity rather than a personal one, seen in a brief moment where Billy crashes and burns at an impromptu stand-up gig in front of an audience of people too young to revere him. But “Misdirection” actually tries to take a bite out of the tension between Billy and Josh by giving the latter a “win.” Josh has tried to slip his ideas past Billy or hire people he knows to work for The Comedians’ show within a show before. In “Misdirection,” he actually succeeds.” (Via Paste Magazine.)
