Bored to Death: The Complete First Season Blu-Ray Review

Bored to Death: The Complete First Season Blu-Ray Review

Synopsis: Meet Jonathan Ames: writer, romantic, unlicensed private detective. Moonlighting from his job as a novelist and writer for a New York magazine, Jonathan is looking to jettison some heavy emotional baggage (his girlfriend just dumped him, okay?) through an unusual second careerof cracking cases of missing persons, espionage and infidelity in the Big Apple.

Review: Ok, so HBO has this new show called Bored to Death.  HBO is famous for high-quality programming, so we figured that we would check this out.  Then, we saw that it was going to have Jason Schwartzman (Shopgirl) AND Zach Galifianakis (the Hangover) as the main roles!  The casting alone was enough to secure our viewership, and all season long we were not disappointed!  This is one of those short series with less than 10 episodes, but they're all comedy gold!  This isn't so much slapstick comedy as it is ackward and uncomfortable situation comedy, much like 'Curb your Enthusiasm' or 'Seinfeld'.   

Bored to Death is one of the best new shows we've seen in a long while.  It also includes cameos from Ted Danson, who plays an absolutely insane boss to Schwartzman.  The cast is ackward and strange and the show is so unique, its not to be missed!   The second season is about to begin, so now is a great time to get caught up!

The special features on the blu-ray include: Audio Commentary
