ET, Wednesdays, IFC), the old friends continue being friends, connecting online to reflect on the season’s premiere episode, “The Bunker.” How funny after all these years of friendship to be speaking over the “information super-highway,” but that is the reality of 21st-century life when good friends are scattered throughout the country.
The strategizing, the hyperbole, the bending of truth.
I wish I could give you feedback on the early cut of the episode, but as I sat down to watch it I was distracted, as I often am, by the question, “Are we heroes for practicing satire?” I certainly wouldn’t feel comfortable calling us that, but I decided I would be OK if others wanted to, preferably critics from British literary magazines (but nothing published more than quarterly).
Then I couldn’t remember the password to this account.
I still haven’t got around to watching the footage (my new wife has programmed our YouTube account to Spanish and it’s bloody impossible), but as a producer on this show I say do what you want until IFC tells me it’s not working and I fire you.
