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.

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.

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...

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.

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.

This is just a sweet sweet series. I am so mad at myself that I ignored it when it was on HBO (helped by the fact that I didn't have HBO when it was on), but watching the past 3 seasons of "Bored to Death" restores my faith in comedy that can be both good-hearted, raunchy and edgy all at the same time. Realistically, unless you watch Seasons 1 & 2, you will be lost coming into Season 3 - and you probably won't feel the comedy in many of the relationship changes that were set up in earlier seasons. But - big BUT here - the payoffs in Season 3 compensate enormously. Although I've read that there was always an intended Season 4, cut short by HBO cancelling the show, nevertheless the final episode is appropriately "conclusive" to be satisfying. Good news: there is a "finale" movie in the works: the writer Jonathan Ames, has said that the only thing holding it up is finishing the screenplay, "and right now I'm on page 94 of 120 pages." Fingers crossed he types faster!
