Editorial Reviews

Writer turned private-eye Jonathan Ames was last spotted duking it out in a dean’s office, (almost) saving Super Ray from a stalker, and endorsing George’s decision to resign from his glossy magazine gig. This season Jonathan will come face-to-face with “furries,” hang with Dick Cavett, and go on the ultimate oedipal investigation.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Fun Continues February 5, 2012
Format:DVD
This show kept up its high quality in season three with the same trio of characters being at the center of the action. This is a show I would recommend seeing in order but it isn't absolutely necessary. However, it helps because you see the initial friendship between Jonathan and George expand to include the comic book creator. Jonathan's detective duties have increased and he gets himself into as much trouble as ever with this unlicensed occupation. Time and again the other two are called to come save him from some job where he's about to die.

For anyone unfamiliar with the show, Jason Schwartzman plays Jonathan. He is a novelist but also increasingly an unlicensed private investigator who picks up his clients off Craig's list. His friend who is his age is Ray (Zach Galifianakos) He is a comic book writer and often dresses in his character's caped costume. He has a loyal band of fans and followers. Jonathan's other friend is George, a former magazine editor who now is a restaurant owner. George is played by Ted Danson and is absolutely hilarious.

In a way this is like a very sophisticated, uptown version of the Three Stooges. The three of them have so many women problems that they may as well remain single and hang around one another. In this series, Jonathan discovers he has a biological father and tracks this person down. Only problem is that he ends up becoming enamored of his half sister while doing so without realizing they are related.

One hilarious episode involved Jonathan's taking George's daughter to a stake out. The action is so wild at this stake out with the people they are watching that George gets mad at Jonathan for corrupting his daughter and they end up in therapy together.

4.0 out of 5 stars Here's for Quitting While You're Ahead February 6, 2012
Format:DVD
As anyone knows who read my reviews of Seasons One and Two, I have been a cheerleader for "Bored to Death" ever since it came out. I adored Season One, thought Season Two was brilliant, and Season Three...well...

I hate to be a wet-blanket. I so deeply loved this series, and had such high hopes for Season 3 after waiting an INTERMINABLY long time for it, that perhaps disappointment was the only reasonable end to this love affair. But I simply could not get into Season 3. Ray (Zak Galifianakos) got on my nerves. What used to seem to be hilarious quirkiness and insecurity just began to seem like annoyingly exaggerated immaturity. Jonathan (Jason Schwartzman) was as adorable as ever, but seemed to be lost in his own cuteness. There were some clever scenes -- the one in which he discovers his paramour was really his sister comes to mind here -- but more often, Jonathan's considerable charm seemed wasted. The only character that didn't disappoint was George (Ted Danson). When they brought in Mary Steenbergen (his real wife) as his love interest, both were hilarious in their respective roles.

But for me, this season never quite took off. Jonathan Ames seems to have given up on it too. I don't know whether he simply ran out of ideas, or if Ted Danson getting the CSI role put the hex on it, but for some reason, it ended. As all good (and great) things do.

Alas. Maybe the brilliant Ames will come up with some other wonderfully witty, esoteric, quirky series. I hope so, because I will miss him.

5.0 out of 5 stars Such a shame it was cancelled October 27, 2012
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
This show is witty, silly, and smart -- a great watch. Such a shame this show was cancelled, although three seasons is not a bad run all in all. After watching all three seasons in an embarrassingly short amount of time, I think it might be time to start reading some of Ames' books.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great TV January 17, 2013
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
This is one of those shows that slowly creeps into the consciousness. All the characterizations are extreme yet not over the top. Ted Danson probably plays the best character of his career.

Like "Arrested Development" I feel the subtlety of this show will achieve the recognition it deserves long after the production ceased...

By Jon
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I had previously watched and LOVED the first two seasons of Bored to Death. They were original, classy, funny, and the characters were relatable and believable. I had, however never watched the third & final season, and while a friend told me it was pretty bad compared to the first two seasons I bought it anyway since I wanted to own the entire series and did not believe it could be that bad. I was wrong.

The LACK of the final two things I liked about the first two seasons are what killed the series, in my opinion, in the third season. The show went from yes, always being quirky, but where the characters seemed REAL, to a much more slapstick-y goofy, weird and even gross (in a skin-crawly way) feel. It was like the characters in this season were written differently from how they were in the first two seasons. Ames moves from a normal place into some weird DC-comics-type watchtower apartment. Rather than rooting for & liking Galifiniakis and Danson's characters as you do in the first two seasons, you pity them and see them both more as losers. Rather than being a neurotic, bored writer wanting to expand his horizons and cope with his loss of companionship like in the first two seasons, it becomes where Schwartzman is much more scripted Private Eye trying to be a like a quippy stooge, like someone in a Naked Gun-type movie. It is hard to explain exactly, but the season just fell right off the cliff after two great ones, and thus led to the show being axed.

Bottom-line: Sad deal this season was so bad - or DIFFERENT, one could certainly say, compared to the first two, but I frankly wish I had NOT bought this season after having bought the first two seasons - I feel like it was a waste of money. It is such a strange season, that while I would be happy to have most people in my life borrow the first two seasons, I would be embarrassed to let them borrow this one.
