If you like Jason Schwartzman and Zach Galifianakis and are okay with drug use, sex and language in your TV shows, you will probably enjoy Bored to Death. Ted Danson is excellent also, but the series may not appeal to his typical fans. Schwartzman's character is a writer and an unlicensed private detective who advertises on Craigslist. The show gains momentum as all three begin teaming up to solve cases and generally make a mess of things. I think this season is the best, followed by one and then three, but I recommend watching them in order, of course.

Someone here pointed out Ted Danson is great. Strangely, he turns out to be the star in a certain way - even as a side character.

The acting and tone is great for this show, but very quietly dry and humourous. Zach Galifinakias is sweet and funny as well. Sadly, this show was canceled—it was a gem!!

comedy, good, funny, worth a watch and only 30min. episodes so if you're looking for something short for filler entertainment it fits the bill.

Perhaps my favorite new show. I hope they keep making them. Every episode is entertaining and extremely quirky. Probably not for everyone but I am a big fan. Funny stuff.

While this isn't a show for everyone I still think it is great. Ted Danson does a fantastic job and the rest of the cast does a pretty decent job. I hope this show continues as the stories keep getting better and better. I would recommend this to fans of darker comedies.
