Applesauce 2: A Paucity Of Paula

[Contains pissy power-plays and SPOILERS!!!] As I mentioned in a previous post, one of my main motivations for purchasing the complete Larry Sanders Show boxset (besides the seasonal discount), was the promise of some prime Janeane Garofalo cuteness and snark… … Continue reading

“Pop!” Go The Fox-Girls

I don’t generally like buying figurines, because they’re so tricky to dust, and I have a tendency to knock them off the shelves when I try… my big-headed Little Nell statuette has taken more swan-dives off the bedside table than … Continue reading

“Trouble With A Capital ‘S’!”

[Contains numerous dropped napkins and SPOILERS!!!] For no apparent reason, the second season of The Sarah Silverman Program (2007) was released in Australia as a region-free boxset… which is also waaay cheaper (and slimmer) than the American R1-only release. Hurrah! … Continue reading

“I Can Feel It In Me Nutsack…”

[Contains sex-bags-of-shame and SPOILERS!!!] I’ve now finished watching the fifth/final “season” of Misfits (2013), and my feelings about the previous batch apply equally here… i.e., it was nowhere near as funny/smart/etcetera as the first season, but even the worst episodes … Continue reading
