Michael Rapaport’s Real ‘War’ – With TV Critics

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Michael Rapaport stars on the Fox sitcom The War At Home but, in real life, his war is with TV critics.

The show returns for its second season on Sunday (Sept. 10) and Rapaport feels it’s even funnier this time even though, he says, “We caught a good momentum at the end of the season. We were really starting to hit our stride.”

However, Rapaport doubts that TV critics will recognize that because, he insists, “They sit on their high horse smashing the 40 or 50 new shows that come along each season.”

Rapaport is more interested in the response of real-life parents, whom he says “appreciate the attempt at honesty.”

Now that The War At Home has had 26 episodes to gel, Rapaport says the show will now emphasize how the teenage characters “are growing up and trying to push the envelope.”

He also promises there will be some controversial plots, touching on all sorts of social taboos.

As Rapaport puts it: “I’m a big advocate of pointing fingers at stereotypes of all types.”
