Wonderfalls! The first of Bryan Fuller's TV shows to get cancelled is over ten years old and deserves a critical re-appreciation as both heralding the future of TV and being so late 90s it hurts. plus, baby Lee Pace! who's up for a rewatch? ( scheduled in about a week to allow Netflix discs to be rented and such)

Sure, I got the DVDs and watched half the episodes a few weeks ago and have been wanting to get to the rest sometime soon, so this would be good incentive.

The first episode of this show was non-stop yuks.

(The cell phone in ERIC THE BARTENDER's back pocket rings)
JAYE: Your ass is ringing.
ERIC: My ass rings a lot.
JAYE: Ever think about setting it on vibrate?
ERIC: I’m not sure I’m secure enough with my manhood to do that.
JAYE: So why do you have an ass if you don’t answer it?

The first episode contains my favorite joke set up and deliver in like, all of TV, remembered it from when I happened to catch the first episode at random call the way back in 04.

I just enjoy how pretty much every Fuller protagonist (and many other major characters) is some flavor of cranky malcontent/weirdo. It's like, "Look, a whole show filled with My People."

My household owns this on DVD already so I think I'll be joining you for this!

I made a stab at organizing this a while back and didn't get much response - I think interest has come up, so yay! They were at one point all on YouTube, which is how I watched them.

I just started watching Wonderfalls, and I'm thinking "she really reminds me of Alana Bloom".

Same actor!

The. Cocktail Bunny episode has a few weird moments of Hannibal-ness

Wonderfalls is also notable for being the only Bryan Fuller show that's not about food or death, although I guess it is about the inevitability of fate, which is sort of like being about death?
