Something about The Little Dog Laughed reminds me a bit of Oscar from NBC's The Office. It works a sort of tragic storylinehiding one's homosexualityinto a tale that's at once both funny and relatable. I guess that's the sign of good comic writing, though, that the hardest things one can deal with in life usually end up having the most laughable by-products. Now, Little Dog does have its differences from the Scranton paper shipping sitcom. Instead of Oscar who dwells dutifully in accounting, Mitchell Green is a Hollywood hottie, thought to be a ladies' man and on the brink of a stunning hunk of a career. Then he falls for a boy, and his agent has to ensure no one finds out. But 10 bucks says someone will. (Then again, Mitchell Green doesn't work with Dwight Schrute.)
