The Comeback is an HBO Series starring Lisa Kudrow as Valerie Cherish. The character Valerie used to be a big TV star, but she has gotten older and her stardom has faded. The series first debuted in 2005 to mixed reviews. And then as time progressed and people watched it over the next 9 years, something changed. It was as if it was just a little ahead of its time. While still not for everyone as it favors the uncomfortable and awkward, it seems to have found a place in pop culture. The second season is getting positive reviews but is still awkward and cringe inducing. And also pretty funny. The Comeback came back after 9 years. That’s worth something.
