It has recently been brought to my attention that some people actually take the recommendations and, presumably, the disrecommendations I make on this blog seriously.
I feel a sudden rush of power and blood to the head.
No — wait, maybe that’s just the third cup of coffee kicking in.
So with this in mind, here’s my meaningless, completely insignificant recommendation for this week.
Of course you do.
So I have three words for you, my friend:
Tripping the Rift.
All 3 seasons and the movie (not so great, but fun if you get into it and great if you’ve got a six-pack on hand) are available on Netflix insty and I’m betting that 5-10 minutes of hardcore Youtubing will probably net you the same thing.
Not for the faint of heart or the ready to blush since two of the main characters are Chode McBlob, the deeply profane and irreverent purple captain of Bob, an agoraphobic spaceship, and Six, Chode’s feminist sex android.
Seriously, we are talking stripper jokes, sex jokes, drug jokes, alcohol jokes — if you thought Little Britain was as bad as it gets — well, okay, you were close but not close enough. There are also enough pop culture references — visual and verbal — to keep pretty much anyone happy.
The first episode is called “God is Our Pilot”: Chode and his “faithful” android, Gus (think a limp-wristed-er version of Threepio) take a trip back in time and kill God. I mean — what do you do for the rest of the day, right?
If you’re in the mood to kick back and take nothing at all very seriously — and enjoy a fictional universe where clowns are the evil villains we all know them to be — then Rift is your new best friend, believe me.
