Podcast: NPR: Bullseye with Jesse Thorn: Chris Rock and John Cleese

Two comedy giants this week. First, Jesse talks to Chris Rock about what it was like to become one of the world’s best stand-up comics in the 1990s. Rock’s got a new movie out. It’s called Top Five. Then, Jesse sits down with Monty Python member John Cleese. They’ll talk about his early life and about what Cleese really thought about the recent Python reunion. Cleese’s new memoir is called So, Anyway. Plus, we ask Scott Aukerman what piece of culture he wishes he had made. His answer? Twin Peaks. Lastly, Jesse tells you about a TV show that lets people just be people.

It's called BoJack Horseman because he's a horse!

Is there any interest in FanFaring BoJack Horseman, or did everyone get their feels out already in the FPP? I'd be up for episode-by-episode, although a single post covering all 12 episodes seems like it would be better (if there's a way to add a post that way.)

Hemlock Grove?

Hemlock Grove S1 is pretty god-awful, but something drew me back to a satisfyingly mediocre S2. I know for a fact that I don't have the energy to do a week-by-week watch thread, but how about a thread for the whole run of the series so far? Is there any sort of precedent for doing that, and would anyone else be interested?

Star Trek Tuesdays?

Regretfully, I've been a lifelong nerd that has never watched any Star Trek but I'd like to start. So I am proposing watching Star Trek The Original Series (available on Netflix) in episode order starting from the first one, with new posts going up on Tuesdays. Given it's 40 years old, I don't think spoilers or first watch/rewatch labels are necessary, but I would like to dive into the originals before someday moving on to the other series. Who's with me?
