"You'll die of laughter, not boredom"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Brilliant show, as can be expected from HBO. The core cast (Jason Schwartzman, Ted Danson, and Zach Galifianakiis) is sublime, and the supporting characters are all equally strong. The writing is sharp, dark, perverse and hilarious. And its filmed beautifully, set in lovely Brooklyn.

Can't wait for season 2 to be released.

Description

Bored to Death is a US Comedy TV series – Inspired by detective stories, A well meaning but struggling writer decides to lead a sort of double life by pretending to be a private detective…

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 career of cracking cases of missing persons, espionage and infidelity in the Big Apple.

Bored to Death TV Show Reviews

“Highly Recommended. Bored to Death: The Complete First Season is yet another big winner from HBO. This humorous take on the private detective genre melds Philip Marlowe with The New Yorker, as author Jonathan Ames creates a highly literate and wonderfully indulgent playground. Starring Jason Schwartzman and featuring knock-out supporting performances from Ted Danson and Zach Galifianakis, Bored to Death is a quirky delight…” DVD Talk

“I heart HBO…Give it a spin and see if HBO's smartly restrained noir comedy appeals to your sensibilities as much as it did mine.” Blu-ray.com

“..Bored To Death is ostensibly a detective show, but hunting down clues and cracking cases invariably takes a back seat to highbrow stoner buddy shenanigans involving Schwartzman and his best friend Zack Galifianakis, a sexually frustrated cartoonist, and Schwartzman’s boss, a daffy publishing mogul played with a deliciously light touch by Ted Danson, who hasn’t been this frisky and fun since playing a dancing lawyer in Body Heat. Like The Long Goodbye for the McSweeney’s ge­neration, Bored To Death riffs on the detective genre with giddy playfulness. Schwartzman’s in­nate likeability helps makes some of the more precious literary conceits palatable; this is the kind of writerly, pop-culture-addled show where a male prostitute recommends emulating Klaus Kinski’s omni­sexuality as a way for Danson’s magazine to increase circulation. Bored To Death is the ultimate hangout show, an inspired, inconsequential lark populated by characters with whom it’d be fun to share a one-hitter, or a glass or three of pinot grigio.” AV Club.com
