I’ve spent the bulk of my non-working time the last few days devouring the DVD box set of The Larry Sanders Show. It’s probably my favorite TV show, ever… brilliantly funny and powerful in every way. Some of the best acting you’ll see on TV, anywhere, anytime, and some of the best writing, too.
The box set has some great extra features, as well. Among other things, you can watch Garry Shandling kick the shit out of Alec Baldwin in the boxing ring, and hear Shandling argue over jokes with Judd Apatow. Once again, the folks at Shout! Factory have come through with a wonderful collection that goes above and beyond my expectations.
If you’re on the fence about buying this, come down. It’s time to pull the trigger. This is pretty much the best $100 you can spend on entertainment.
