BORED TO DEATH

Com­edy 9.30pm, ABC2

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - TV Guide - - BEST ON THE BOX - – TA

This quirky, dark and overtly Amer­i­can com­edy se­ries is a piece of tele­vi­sion gold that de­served far bet­ter than its can­ning af­ter three sea­sons on HBO. Ja­son Schwartz­man stars as fringe nov­el­ist-cum-pri­vate-de­tec­tive Jonathan Ames (an ex­ag­ger­ated ver­sion of the show’s cre­ator … Jonathan Ames) along­side comic ge­niuses Zach Gal­i­fi­anakos – as Ames’s awk­ward best friend Ray – and Ted Dan­son – as big time mag­a­zine ed­i­tor Ge­orge Christo­pher. The three share a hi­lar­i­ous res­tau­rant scene inside the first five min­utes that will se­cure your at­ten­tion for the se­ries.
