Bored To Death


I happen to find pot smoking Jews to be highlarious- 
So when I read about this HBO TV series I ordered it immediately and was not disappointed. 


The show is written by author Jonathan Ames, and stars Jason Schwartzman as a fictional Jonathan Ames – a writer who also moonlights as an private detective. 
Jason Schwartzman is a great actor and in my opinion handsome.  He portrays a freshly single, pot smoking, struggling writer who lives in Park Slope, NY.  His boss is played by Ted Danson, also a pot head and bit of a sex addict and alcoholic.  The best friend role goes to Zach Galifianakis (who wouldn't want Zach as a BFF), a slightly neurotic comic book writer.  
After some success with a first novel, Jonathan is struggling to write a second novel.  He posts an ad on Craigslist, as an unlicensed Private Investigator and comedy ensues as he takes on cheating boyfriends, missing persons and sex scandal blackmailers.
  The first season came out on DVD in September 2010 and although the second season finished showing in November 2010 they have not released the DVD yet- 

Jonathan Ames also wrote The Extra Man- which was made into a film I recently saw. The story is about a failed playwright who sublets a room to an eccentric cross-dressing aspiring writer and trains him to be an extra man while they entertain rich Cougars.  Dr. J fell asleep while watching it.

I wanted to watch this show but I never got around to doing so. I'll have to remedy that, I'm a fan of pot smoking jews too ;)

I love Bored to Death, and Johnathan Ames! Super Ray is hilarious!

I heard there's a lot of inside jokes about Brooklyn, that I don't really seem to get, but love them anyways. (Calling a hipster in Park Slope Sundance is pretty funny even without any reference).

Have you seen It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia also? If not, you must. You'll pee your pants.

Haven't watched it (we don't have a TV and although we try to watch movies and selected TV series, we're so behind...)
Sounds like my cup of tea. As winter is upon us I reckon there will be some good opportunities for snuggling screen time.

Maybe You'll Enjoy These Too...
