Need a new TV show into which I can sink the teeth of my mind (Read 694 times)


Hip Redux

    In the coming to things late category, I just discovered John Lajoie's Youtube channel of amazingly funny songs. He plays Taco on The League. My favorite character on the show—so hard to wrap your brain around—is he serious, sardonic,  dumb, intelligent, out there, totally there?  Seems he's had this whole other career before the show. Creative man.

     

    Yeah, I posted that  - see about four posts up!  Hilarious stuff.

      I was meaning to click through on that, thinking it was just Taco's songs. Last night, I was looking at the Wikipedia page for The League, and I was interested in the guy who plays Taco, and his page said he was a Youtube star, so I clicked through, and "I Kill People" was just amazing! As was "I'm A Normal Guy."

        Just started FARGO last night.  Love it.  Very much the same "feel" as the movie.  Great characters.

        Figure out the achilles thing...... and THEN try to get running regularly again.

        No racing goals

                  Just started Rake (Australian version) after hearing about it on NPR.  Pretty good, so far.  Can't imagine wide-eyed and docile Greg Kinear playing the main role (in the American version).

                    Do you use CerebelluDent?

                    Supposedly really helps when your mind dentures start to slip. Comes in a few flavors.

                      +1 Great show so far.  Someone-- not always human-- killed every episode.

                          In the "coming late to the party" category, I finally gave 30rock a chance, and now I'm hooked (on Netflix). Funny, total comedy, no schmaltz. Tina Fey is an amazingly creative person. Go, TIna!

                            Love this link.  It's full of great recommendations.

                            My current favorite is Justified. Can't recommend it enough. Also liked Hell on Wheels.  I currently have the next season of Boardwalk Empire on reserve at the library.

                              We're working through Legit now.   If you like The League, it's the same sort of twisted/adult humor.   Only two seasons, though.
