    This looks interesting, I’ve never heard of it but will check it out!

    Speaking of chairs, does this mean the final issue of Grant Morrison’s Doom Patrol is literally your favourite thing ever? 🙂 I was reading that the other day and was struck by the chairy-ness of it.

    Your review has given me a bit more appreciation for this show than I’ve had so far. I’ve watched up through the episode introducing the action figure and, as the owner of one of the bajillion names of crowd-funding backers that can be seen (I assume) scrolling rapidly by in the credits, I’ve been a bit disappointed that much of the humor has been of the “diarrhea is comedy gold, and it’s hilarious when conventionally unattractive people want to have sex!” variety. Then there’s the characterization of Wray as both “cringe-humor protagonist and therefore terrible person” and “only sane man in a world gone mad,” a combination that, at best, creates “unresolved tensions,” as we academics like to say.

    Now, I guess it IS always somehow entertaining to watch celebrities play asshole versions of themselves, perhaps because it appears to confirm something we all secretly suspect, so that all of this combines to be something like Ricky Gervais’ “Extras” — which I love — but with more poop jokes (so many, many more poop jokes) and cartoonier acting.
