5 Audio Commentaries with Jason Schwartzman, Jonathan Ames, Ted Dansaon, Michael Lehmann & Alan Taylor

Editorial Reviews

When we last dropped in on Jonathan Ames – New York writer, romantic, unlicensed private detective – he was taking a pounding in the boxing ring while still licking his (more painful) breakup wounds. Now that his second novel has been completed (and rejected), Jonathan is augmenting his income by moonlighting as a creative-writing teacher, while taking on some new, desperate clients, ranging from a kinky policeman to the publishing rival of his sexagenarian pal, George Christopher. How he solves anything is a mystery.

5.0 out of 5 stars The fun continues... November 13, 2010
Format:DVD
After the insanely funny, original and stylishly quirky Season One, I seriously doubted that the creator of "Bored to Death", the real Jonathan Ames, would be able to match, much less surpass, what I so admired about his HBO series. But I'm happy to say that the adventures of Jonathan (Jason Schwartzman), George (Ted Danson), and Ray (Zach Galifianakos) continue in high hilarity and unmatched style.

As the season opens we find Jonathan, as usual, down on his luck. His second novel has been rejected and he has to pay back his advance to his publisher (we don't see Bebe Neuwirth this season, worse luck). To help make ends meet, he is teaching a night class in writing at a Brooklyn public high school. The class, in Ames' gifted hands, offers all kinds of opportunities for fun, from a dark, angry Asian writer to a Lolita-like student who has an immediate crush on Jonathan. Jonathan is a bit ashamed of this venue, but as always, aspires earnestly to please.

Ames explores some of society's taboos this season, played out in Jonathan's now full-time occupation as an unlicensed private detective. S and M, adultery (of course), transgenderism, menage a trois, all are explored with Ames' usual witty, sometimes uproarious, but always somehow endearingly earnest, goofiness. He borrows from older movies ("Chinatown" and "On the Waterfront", even "Casablanca") and once again I am reminded of Woody Allen, but Ames puts his own stamp of genius on these monoliths, and makes them his own.

Some old friends re-appear -- Oliver Platt and Kristen Wiig among them -- and some new ones enhance the episodes (Kevin Bacon, F. Murray Abraham, Mary Kay Place). But always it is the magical chemistry of Schwartzman, Danson, and Galifianakos that make it work.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stoned to death September 2, 2011
Format:Blu-ray
The excellent original series from writer Jonathan Ames returns for a second series with Jonathan (played by Jason Schwartzman) continuing his private detective work while trying (admittedly not very hard) to get his second novel published. The series opens with Jonathan now teaching an evening creative writing class to repay the advance his publisher gave him for the second novel which was rejected. Meanwhile Ray's (Zach Galifianakis) girlfriend Leah (Heather Burns) breaks up with him so he tries to win her back by putting all of his effort into his comic book "Super Ray" which doesn't win her back but makes his comic book an unexpected success. George (Ted Danson) receives some bad news in this series which he takes with his usual good humour and which subsequently changes the character's world.

"Bored to Death" gets better with this second series. Ted Danson is still the most likeable man on television and still doesn't look like he's in his early 60s and his performance as George is so charming and enjoyable to watch. He is by far the best actor in the series but Zach G and Jason Schwartzman both perform very ably as well. This series might be good for fans critical of Zach G who don't like his overly crazy comedic roles as he plays probably the most balanced character in this group and comes across as almost normal.

There are some excellent cases in this series too, involving S&M dungeons, kidnapping and ransoming, a fight between Jonathan and rival Louis Greene and some drug dealers, an attempted robbery of a café, the rescuing of an Asian transvestite, and a plan to assassinate Ray.

5.0 out of 5 stars Laughing at Bored to Death June 10, 2014
By Tina
Format:Amazon Instant Video
I was all set to cancel my Amazon Prime Membership and then I decided to turn on my Kindle Fire and see what I could watch before it was all gone. Found the new HBO programs offered on Amazon Prime and ended up renewing my membership. I ABSOLUTELY LOVED LOVED LOVED this show. It was fun, honestly fun, to watch the 3 men get into and out of trouble plus be there for each other.

I can watch these over and over again.

This was laugh outloud funny for me...the slapstick leanings of this trio were very entertaining and I was disappointed that there were only 3 seasons!

4.0 out of 5 stars Send the Geek Squad! October 29, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video
Love this series. Nothing seems too "over the top", contrived, ridiculous...yet it's far enough out of the way of normal events that it's immediately interesting. More than anything it's very well cast. I had forgotten that Ted Danson existed...and now here he is again in a role that suits his type perfectly. Jason Schwartzmans ability to launch ironic platitudes with a straight, serious look...never overplaying his hand...lends a nice light air to the show and Jack G's character is a delightful childish weight that keeps the show grounded in a brilliant kind of comic absurdity.
Kudos to the makers of Bored to Death. More like this please!

4.0 out of 5 stars Likeable & Fun September 15, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video
It's often silly. That's probably what I like best about it. When I need something that's not "heavy" and just want some fun, this is a show I like to put on. Only half hour, so it doesn't take up too much time, but I find I'm smiling after watching it. The characters are good because they share a comrade-ry and loyalty with one another. That in itself is quite appealing. Fun, funny, easy. Some days that's just what you want.
