Saying goodbye to one of my favorite shows.
By Rachel James (Treasurer/Writer)
Here at Crazytown, we are big fans of internet TV. Kim has written about how fantastic the art form is, citing such great shows as Very Mary Kate and The Misadventures of Awkward Black Girl. Greg has interviewed Jane Espenson about Husbands AND shown his love for My Drunk Kitchen. Even this week, David introduced us all to some excellent gay shows currently playing the interwebs.
This week, one of my favorite web shows posted their series finale. Jack In A Box is about an actor named Jack Simon and his day job working in a box office. Needless to say, I find it absolutely hilarious and scarily accurate.
I encourage everyone to watch all 31 episodes from the beginning. But for now, here are my top three:
Episode #30: The Bonding
You know that first time you hang out with co-workers outside the confines of “work hours”? This episode captures that perfectly with hysterical, drunken realness.
Episode #20: The Surprise
This co-stars Mary Testa as Jack’s mom and Alison Fraser as Jack’s Aunt Heidi. Both Testa and Fraser appear in several episodes, but this is the only one that also features Julie Halston as their friend, Dawn. Three Long Island women coming to the City for a matinee. Comedy gold!
Episode #1: The Receiver
At one time or another, I have said pretty much everything he says. Verbatim. “Yes, it’s a musical.”
