Bored To Death: HBO isn't known for posting episodes online, so it's particularly tasty that the network decided to post Bored To Death's season 2 premiere online for free. The series follows Schwartzman as he attempts to escape his depression-induced-boredom by imitating the private detectives from his favorite novels. Schwartzman, Galifianakis, and Danson all in the same show? Yes, please!
Jon Stewart & Bill O'Reilly Face-Off, Again: Last week, Jon Stewart endured some high-pressure role-reversal when he took to the hot seat as a guest on The O'Reilly Factor. The two political talk show hosts have been at each other's necks for years, but it sure makes for good TV and that's one thing we know they can't argue. Don't miss this week's heated run-in when O'Reilly returns the favor as a guest on The Daily Show.
Dexter: Last season's finale left audiences in shock, so it's no surprise that Dexter's season 5 premiere was one of the most anticipated of the season. Even more exciting is the fact that the episode is currently free to watch online. Join America's favorite serial killer as he attempts to piece together his very broken life.
Stiller and Meara: If you're too young to remember that Ben Stiller's parents were once a successful comedy duo in the 60s, now is your chance to get acquainted. Jerry Stiller and Anne Meara are back! Only this time, they're sharing their thoughts on subjects like Facebook and The Jersey Shore. It's kind of like listening to your grandparents talk about technology and pop culture, only much, much funnier.
Jack In A Box: This series just won the 2010 Best Pilot Award at the NYTV Festival. It's about a nice guy who takes a job answering calls at a playhouse box office. It's also about his slow descent into insanity as a result. Love that.
Inglourious Basterds – Hi Sallys: The death of Quentin Tarantino's editor, Sally Menke, came as a shock earlier this week. At age 56, Tarantino's "greatest collaborator" had racked up a resume including films like Pulp Fiction, Kill Bill, and Jackie Brown. Her latest film, Inglourious Basterds, included a gag reel wherein cast and crew members said "hi" to Sally once a scene reached completion. A YouTube user posted the reel as a tribute to the late editor. It serves as a sweet, authentic homage and gives the viewer a sense of how indelible Menke was to the filmmaking process as a whole.
Google Me: Have you ever googled your own name? Probably. And you probably discovered that you're not the only one out there. Well, so did Jim Killeen. Only he went so far as to track down the other Jim Killeens and make a documentary about it. It's a pretty cool depiction of how small the world can be when you look through the lens of the World Wide Web.
