Advent Day 3: I’m Sorry

As much as I have an appreciation for the future vision of the dark fiction masters who write dystopian tales, I’ve come to appreciate comedy more and more in recent years. I’m Sorry is a show that is so wrong, but funny, and like the best comedy it touches on very provocative issues in a way that resonates. There’s nothing quite like having your young child appear in blackface at a party with other adults or discovering that so-and-so’s mom from preschool used to be a porn star. And Andrea has absolutely no control over her mouth. The secret ingredient in this show, though? Jason Mantzoukis. Oh lord, he’s one of these guys who makes every scene he’s in better. Thanks to Jeff VanderMeer for the recommendation.
