My brother Alan just turned me on to a new prong (maybe just a tine) in the attack on exorbitant cable bills: Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee.
Seinfeld’s new web series is also viewable on Crackle, a (currently) free Roku channel.
This ultimate “show about nothing” is really about all sorts of things, like Sarah Jessica Parker’s mother who had “splitting” headaches, not regular ones, possibly from being in a state of enragement 9 hours/day.
It’s about Jon Stewart’s prom night, which involved his sick cat, his AMC Gremlin, and the bags of lime he used to counterweight it.
It’s about how much Sarah Silverman’s head looks like a sock puppet.
It’s about 20 minutes long, including product placement for Acura.
Jerry tells Sarah Jessica Parker a story about the 1969 one-season-wonder NBC series starring Michael Parks and his Harley Sportster, then came BRONSON (featured on TTM).
Crackle is following in Netflix’, Amazon’s and Hulu’s footsteps by commissioning original content. It put them back on my map, as I had previously looked at the channel, and then bumped it off so I would have a number of channels divisible by 3 (that way, the Roku channel display looks nicer).
All 3 episodes I’ve seen so far are worth watching, and up there on my new “Workaholics”-defined guffaw scale. TulsaTV says 3 thumbs up.
(Crackle has much more to offer these days; this Digital Landing post explains: Crackle free movies and television shows)
