Bored to Death

Have you seen the new HBO series, Bored to Death? It's about a struggling Brooklyn novelist who moonlights as a private detective, and I find it endlessly hilarious. Ted Danson is a genius.

I discovered this show the other day and it is amazing! A perfect ode to Brooklyn and all of its quirks. The casting is spot on.

Sasha S. said...

YAY! so glad you like the show! i am the assistant to one of the executive producers. it's coming back this fall! thanks so much for supporting it!

Gina said...

Zack Galifianakis is also a genius.

Ted Danson is pretty funny in this show. I liked when his therapist told him to try being gay. That was hilarious.

Sal said...

I've been dying to see this show! Glad to hear it's as funny as it looks in the trailers.

Kristy said...

i love it! and i REALLY love the animated intro: http://twoifbysee.blogspot.com/2009/09/bored-to-deaths-animated-intro.html

Meighan said...

I was waiting with bated breath for this series to start! And I was definitely not dissapointed. So hilarious! And Ted Danson - aside from being a riot.. had my boyfriend envying every suit he wore!

joanne said...

yes i've been watching this since the first episode! it's absolutely genius, a great refreshing interpretation of film noir. jason schwartzman never fails to be awkardly hilarious!

Cathi said...

Sounds great, thanks for the recommendation - will definitely check it out!

Erin said...

I love this show. The entire cast is amazing!

Christina said...

I love it! I have to agree with the Ted Danson comment. He really makes the show. But who also doesn't love Jason and Zack?

stacy di said...

yes. it's quirky goodness. totally love it!

Amanda Nicole said...

I love this show! I usually laugh out loud throughout the entire episode.

Marisa Midori said...

Maybe I'll have to give it another try. I've been hearing really good things about it lately but I wasn't impressed by the first couple of episodes. I love the intro, though. And Zack Galifianakis!

Kelly @ Dare to be Domestic said...

To say I love this show is a HUGE understatement. My boyfriend and I don't subscribe to HBO, but have thought about getting it simply for this series! We caught it one night while in New Orleans on vacation and laughed the whole way through. I adore Zach G!!!

Danielle said...

I love this show! Ted Danson cracks me up.

I love this show! It cracks me up!

I've only seen a few episodes, but it's so funny. Also, I really like, 'Community' and Chevy Chase is great in it.

Very funny. Love Ted Danson, too.

Joanna Goddard said...

sasha, that is AWESOME!!!

Joanna Goddard said...

i know, zach is the funniest ever. he is like a big chubby baby (in the best possible way). :)

2 By Design said...

I SERIOUSLY need to get HBO!! If Ted Danson is half as great in this as he is in Damages, it will be worth every penny.

k_darling said...

I initially resisted, because I'm stubborn, but my husband, equally stubborn, kept insisting that I watch it. I finally did and now I'm totallly hooked. So happy for on demand!

Teresa @ good-grace said...

Wow... I may have to eek out some time to watch this. (or at least dvr-it to watch later.) Sounds like a great show.

Closet Cravings said...

I LOVE this show. It is completely hilarious and fun. I'm sad the season is over. Boo-hoo. =(

Closet Cravings said...

I LOVE this show. It is hilarious and completely enjoyable. I'm sad the season is over though. =(

stacy said...

yup! totally digging it.

Elizabeth said...

I haven't seen this show...but I did start watching Cheers reruns when I moved to Boston. Ted Danson is genius :)

Her name was Lola said...

Haha! We think alike. I wrote almost the very same post on Monday: The {new} Sunday night fix

I'm loving it.

Cheers.

Meghan said...

This is one of our favorite shows. I think Zach Galifianakis is the funniest. And it doesn't hurt that he and my husband look like they could be brothers. :)

The Sale Rack said...

Love this show. Ditto on Ted Danson! He's on a roll between Bored to Death and Curb Your Enthusiasm.

Megan said...

The BEST! It kills me!

Love this show. Glad to see lots of others do, too. Haven't heard much talk about it ...was afraid it wouldn't be around for long.

Kylee said...

I haven't even heard of it - thanks for the heads up! Great cast!

Lilly said...

Oh my goodness! So much love for TD! I am his proud step daughter and I will pass it along that my fave blog is crazy about him and BTD. I agree, he is genius!

Bridey said...

I totally blogged about this show a few times! I'm in love with it! I can't wait for the second season (there just has to be one!)

Anastasia said...

Jason Schwartzman is my #1 geek crush. The show is great.

simplesong said...

oooh, will have to check this out.

Kate said...

Hilarious! Here I am reading my Favorite blog out there, so excited to see how much everyone loves Bored to Death, daring myself to write a comment saying how proud I am of my dad (T.D) and...low and behold I find my step sister Lilly's comment!!
I'm so happy you love him so much, seeing as I pretty much always agree with everything you love, J.G!

L said...

They have filmed in my neighborhood park (Fort Greene Park) and do not have the largest of budgets, which gives me close access to set. Fun!

Her name was Lola said...

It wasn't a poster! I just photoshopped the pictures together. I can't help myself, I just love those guys and look forward to each + every episode.

Oh too bad they don't play it yet in Belgium!
I love Schwartzman!

natalie said...

Great show! And I love the title song!!

mkendall said...

I loved that show! I just wish the first season hadn't been so short! I'm glad it got picked up for a second season though. I don't know what I watched before we got HBO.

Kitty said...

Oh how I miss American TV! I've been living in Europe for three years now. Soon my little TV friends! Soon! I am coming home, I promise. :)

TheBeautyFile said...

OBSESSED!!! I went away for the weekend in early October and I came back to find my husband head over heels in LOVE with this show. He made me watch every episode, which wasn't exactly hard to do since I have a thing for Mr. Schwartzman. Seriously, the funniest show on tv...I practically have to hold back both tears and pee while watching from laughing so hard. {TMI??}

Chessa! said...

yes! I love this show. Ted Danson is so funny...I watched most of the eps twice bc my husband fell asleep half way through them the first time bc we watched them after Dexter and Mad Men on Sunday. :) I didn't complain...I laughed even harder the second time.

Sofya said...

I follow this show religiously! It is absolutely hysterical... I actually happened to be on the set of "The Lonely White Dove" episode due to a birthday party at the restaurant they were filming at! I even got to take a shot with Jason Schwartzman!

Style Bite said...

I LOVE this show. Ted Danson is amazing.

CeCe said...

I love this show! Such fabulous writing. Ted Danson is wonderful, seriously the role of his career.

Kim said...

Whoa! That's crazy-- I've been watching a lot of Castle lately and it has the same exact plotline (and the guy who plays Castle is from Firefly-- score!). As Castle cracks me up, I'll have to check out Bored to Death, thanks for the tip :)

Suzanne said...

it happens to be my newest favorite show! just perfect for sunday nights.

♥ Strim Vintage said...

I just discovered this show. Hilarious!!! My favorite line..." I'm on marijuana minutes."

anotherfishinthesea said...

Unfortunately, I don't have HBO. Since I rarely watch tv and stick with series on DVD's it doesn't seem worth it. (Though I have a feeling this may be changing next summer when I get married. Hm?) Anywho, I heard Ted Danson's interview on NPR about the show though and it definitely created high expectations for me - glad to hear its living up to those!

Kat - www.cardinalhouse.etsy.com said...

Ted Danson is great in this..I love it!

Bailey said...

I am OBSESSED with this show, thanks to this and Modern Family I finally feel safe from the takeover of trashy reality programming.

destined to design said...

for some ridiculous reason, i still have yet to watch an episode of this. i love all three of them, so i'm sure it's a riot.

Caroline said...

Oh, Jason Schwartzman. How is he so endlessly appealing?

lauren said...

friend of Kate and Lilly - and TD! LOVE THE SHOW! have to say ever since i would sneak out of bed late at night when i was little to watch Cheers with my mum i have had a place in my heart for TD! he MAKES the show! SO FUNNY!
