You know the type - comedy shows where the characters talk directly to the camera, popularized by 'The Office'. Best not to think who exactly the documentary is being made for, who funded it, etc. Just suspend, and enjoy.
Maybe it's thanksgiving and you need to put your family's dysfunction in perspective; this list of modern sitcoms, featuring the likes of Shameless and Parenthood, may be a good place to start. Suddenly a couple drunk uncles and a recent divorce don't seem so bad!
