Where to Stream the Ed Helms Sitcom

A sense of pride and a need to honor one’s ancestors is at the heart of what Rutherford Falls is all about. From the creators of The Good Place other Parks and Recreation, the ending and politically-minded sitcom is returning for a second season. With an impressive turnaround, the show is coming to our screens just over a year since the first season’s release. Providing audiences with a surprisingly thought-provoking sitcom that tackles otherwise avoided and heavy topics, this show focuses on a cultural need to feel proud and patriotic of our past, despite America’s flawed history, in a way that is amusing and often slightly bizarre.

Much of the show’s success is thanks to the strong eye for storytelling and comedic television that its co-creators, Sierra Teller Ornelas, Michael Schurand Ed Helms, all have. Sierra Teller Ornelas is known for being a producer and writer for the hit comedy series superstore featuring Ben Feldman other America Ferreraas well as Split up together starring Jenna Fischer other Oliver Hudson. Michael Schur is most known for his role as co-creator on the renowned US adaptation of TheOffice, Parks and Recreationand The Good Placeand executive producer of Brooklyn Nine Nine, Master of Noneand Emmy Award-winning series hacks. Ed Helms is most known for his work in front of the screen, playing many comedic roles, including his recurring role as Andy Bernard in TheOfficeas well as being voicing Kyle in the animated series BoJack Horseman and playing Stu in The Hangover movie series. Here’s how you can watch the new season.

How Did Rutherford Falls Season 1 End?

Creating tension and anxiety for a new season was the uncertainty that the first season ended with. In the final episode, best friends who spent the second half of the season on the rocks Nathan Rutherford (Ed Helms) and Reagan Wells (Jana Schmieding) finally make up as they both break down about their hopes and expectations for their futures. Nathan also discovers that he is not actually related to the Rutherford family, completely derailing his sense of purpose in life and calling into question the connection that he so strongly felt to the family.

Reagan appears to finally be stepping up and comfortably moving forward with the Minishonka Cultural Center but is ultimately still scared about her new responsibilities. Finally, in the last 2 minutes of the show, it is exposed that journalist Josh Carter (Dustin Milligan), Reagan’s love interest, has made a podcast about the personal details Reagan exposed to him about Nathan and his family. As the first season’s finale left audiences with more questions and theories about the future, the second season of the show will continue to explore the stories and the characters we grew to care about in the first season, hopefully answering all of our questions.

More Comedic Shows like Rutherford Falls That You Can Watch Now

Now if you’re a fan of the show, you may be looking for some ideas for other shows to watch that have a similar feel or comedic flair to Rutherford Falls.

Parks and Recreation: Probably most similar to Rutherford Falls in the overall tone of the sitcom is Parks and Recreation. This show follows the life of Leslie Knope, played by Amy Poehlera female government official who is in charge of the Parks Department of a small town called Pawnee.

With a mockup format, Parks and Recreation follows the lives of the workers in Leslie’s office as they pass their days with new park-related and personal dramas. Leslie Knope is a very eager and often innocently positive character who hardly ever sees setbacks or difficulties as issues beyond repair; everything has a silver lining. This happiness despite the audience’s or other characters’ pessimistic realism is something that Nathan Rutherford from Rutherford Falls so embodies.

The Good Place: Juxtaposing extreme goodness and badness or grumpiness seems to be a theme in this collection of sitcoms with the co-creators of Rutherford Falls in common The Good Place is no different. Featuring Ted Danson other Kristen Bellalongside William Jackson Harper, The Good Place is a fantasy sitcom created by Michael Schur. The series follows Eleanor Shellstrop played by Kristen Bell, after she has lived an immoral life, passed away, and somehow found herself, by accident, in the “Good Place”, rather than the “Bad Place”. Eleanor, being a baddie, is uncomfortable in a place of over-bearing kindness and struggles as Chidi, played by William Jackson Harper, aims to help her improve. Much of the show is a comedic look into the philosophical aspects after we die and human speculation about what happens to us.

TheOffice: What is probably the least deep and meaningful or politically powerful out of all the recommendations, but nevertheless a classic show is TheOffice. With an ensemble cast including Steve Carell, John Krasinski, Rainn Wilsonand Jenna Fischerthe infamous American adaptation of TheOffice is where Ed Helms’ comedic career in television became widely recognized. This series is another mockumentary, surrounding office workers at a paper distribution company and all of the day-to-day dramas and struggles that they face, under the hands of a boss, who just wants to make them smile. While the show is widely politically incorrect, much of the show’s humor and comedic elements come from recognizing how inappropriate the comments are.
