Never has there been a time more than now that we need a gold old fashioned laugh and Miranda certainly delivers.

You will most assuredly have that six-pack in no time watching socially inept and accident-prone Miranda (a semi-fictional version of herself) get into uncomfortable situations from dating to simply dealing with her overbearing mother.
