Watch Til Death
- 4 Seasons
Til Death is an American television sitcom that premiered on FOX in 2006 and ran for four seasons until 2010. Created by Josh Goldsmith and Cathy Yuspa, the show stars Brad Garrett as a cynical high school history teacher named Eddie Stark and Joely Fisher as his long-suffering wife Joy Stark.
The show centers around the couple's relationship, which is characterized by Eddie's sarcastic and brusque personality and Joy's unwavering patience and enduring love. The two have been married for more than 20 years, and their marriage is tested by the arrival of several neighbors and acquaintances, including the newlywed couple Jeff and Steph Woodcock (played by Eddie Kaye Thomas and Kat Foster), who move in next door.
The show is set in suburban Philadelphia and is structured around a traditional sitcom format, with each episode featuring several stand-alone storylines that revolve around the various characters. There are a number of recurring themes throughout the series, including Eddie's jealously of Jeff and Steph's seemingly perfect marriage, Eddie and Joy's attempts to repair their own marriage, and the couple's struggles with their two teenage children, Allison and Doug.
Til Death is known for its sharp writing and quick-witted humor, as well as for its talented cast. Brad Garrett, who rose to fame on the hit sitcom Everybody Loves Raymond, delivers a performance that is both hilarious and deeply human as the acerbic Eddie. Joely Fisher, the daughter of singer Eddie Fisher and actress Debbie Reynolds, brings a warmth and depth to the character of Joy, creating a believable and relatable portrait of a long-suffering spouse.
In addition to the main cast, Til Death features a number of guest stars and recurring characters, including Eddie's co-worker and friend Kenny (played by J.B. Smoove), who frequently pops up to offer advice and commentary on Eddie's antics. Other notable guest stars include Susan Sarandon and Carol Burnett, who both appeared in the third season of the show.
Despite its critical acclaim and dedicated fan base, Til Death struggled to find an audience during its initial run on FOX. The show underwent several changes throughout its four-season run, including the departure of Joely Fisher after the third season and the introduction of a new, younger couple in the fourth season. The show was cancelled by FOX in May 2010, after 81 episodes.
However, despite its relatively short run, Til Death remains a beloved and enduring sitcom, known for its genuine affection for its characters and its sharp, witty writing. With its talented cast and relatable storylines, the show continues to be a favorite among fans of classic sitcoms, and its legacy continues to endure.
Til Death is a series that is currently running and has 4 seasons (82 episodes). The series first aired on September 7, 2006.
