If you’re looking for an under-the-radar TV show to watch, “Mr. Corman” starring Joseph Gordon Levitt might just be the show for you. I can’t say I heard of this one before stumbling upon it while looking through Apple TV, but was pleasantly surprised and impressed with Joseph Gordon Levitt and his creative direction and acting in the show. “Mr. Corman” is a deep cut into the days and nights of a public school teacher in the San Fernando Valley and the struggles he goes through to find happiness and meaning in the world. The entire show feels very authentic and brings up not only funny moments but and social commentary on topics like Covid and depression.
“Mr. Corman” is a genuine and real 7.5 out of 10 and gives me a lot of vibes similar to Seinfeld, in the sense that it’s a show about pretty much nothing. If you know me, you know I love a good acting performance and I love when characters get their fair share of character development and personality. Joseph Gordon Levitt shines in his on-screen performance as well as with his creative direction. It’s refreshing to see a show made by a lead actor that is so authentic and genuine. I do wish there would’ve been more than 10 episodes and that it would’ve gotten picked up for season two, but at the end of the day, it’s a very easy watch. While I can’t say it’s the greatest TV show of all time or that should’ve won any awards last year, but at face value, I enjoyed it for what it is, and is worth the watch if you’re a fan of Joseph Gordon Levitt and if you have Apple TV.
