Tacoma FD is my new favorite show

I've gotten hooked on Tacoma FD, without a doubt my new favorite show on TV.  Tacoma FD was created by Kevin Heffernan & Steve Lemme, who also both star in the series playing the Chief and Captain respectively.  Both actors are also part of the comedy troupe "Broken Lizard" who made such movies as Super Troopers and Beerfest.

 

The show is about firefighters in the city of Tacoma, Washington.  The untold joke about the series is that Tacoma has the most rain per capita of any city in the U.S., so obviously these firefighters don't have a lot of fire to put out in the city which gives them a lot of time for high jinx and pranks.  The supporting cast is made up of some relatively unknowns including Hassie Harrison who plays the Chief's daughter and also stars Marcus Henderson who you may remember from the movie Get Out where he played the groundskeeper.  But to me, the break out star is Eugene Cordero who plays Andy Myawani a Hawaiian firefighter who is constantly made fun of for going bald.  The firefighters also find themselves constantly bickering and fighting with the local police department which features the hilarious Jimmy Tatro who you may remember from American Vandal. 

This show is great and a must watch.  I will warn you it is rather raunchy, but it is hilarious and probably the best comedy on television right now.  You can check out new episodes on Thursday nights on TruTV.  Also look for it on demand because you can find the explicit versions of the show if you want to see it at it's best in my opinion.
