Bored to Death: Season Three (Blu-Ray)

Michael Durr has been reviewing movies for the better part of fifteen years now. He primarily enjoys thrillers, sci-fi, animation and even a little courtroom drama. His favorite films include Escape from New York, the Goonies and anything with Alyssa Milano. When he’s not praising Kurt Russell as the greatest actor of our time or scratching his head over a David Lynch flick, he’s spending time at home in Texas with his lovely wife, Lori and his amazing son. How they put up with him is a mystery, but even Basil Rathbone doesn’t have the time to solve that one.

    I really liked this show when it aired on TV, and even more now that I have watched them again off of the Blu-Ray. It is really a smart and quirky show, and I can see why you thought it was a little too much so because it never does anything else. I rented the box set to introduce my girlfriend to the show. I was really pleased to see that I could get TV series through my Blockbuster @Home account, because I like the show, but not enough to buy the box set. Afterword I was talking about it at work and a few of my Dish coworkers that are about my age (and Johnathan’s age) said that they really liked it too, so maybe it is a generational thing.

    Thank you very much for the comments Chris :). I do feel like some of the newer quirkier comedies that are out on HBO/Showtime and Primetime television are a victim of the generation so maybe I don’t get it. But everybody around me seems to love them. Then again, there are plenty of series out there, especially older ones that I often feel like I’m the only one who does get it.

    I actually consulted my wife too who is about 8 years younger than me but truth be told she didn’t really care for this one either. But I know Bored to Death does indeed have its fans, one of my close co-workers loves it and we attend to agree more often than not.

    Who knows 🙂
