Rounding Out The Final Five: For Reals This Time

Okay, so after much deliberation, I've decided on the fifth show I'll be reviewing for the upcoming Fall season.

TOOL ACADEMY 2!!!!!!!!

Okay, not really...but that show is some serious greatness. Seeing a bunch of faux-hawked jackanapes trying to look serious at an elimination while shirtless and wearing a sport coat that they Bedazzled themselves is some quality television. 12 guys, all of whom admit cheating on their girlfriends (and by the way, where do they find these women? These girls are Stockholm Wives!) and other acts of douchebaggery. It's like a trip to the zoo, but with more commercials for I Love The 1840's!

Anyway, the real final show that I'll be reviewing is:

The Cable Show: Bored to Death

HBO puts out some good television (and Entourage), but they are far from flawless (Sex and the City), which makes Bored to Death an intriguing coinflip. I like Jason Schwartzman from movies like Rushmore and I <3 Huckabees, and the concept might have legs. Schwartzman plays a writer who goes into business for himself as a private detective with no training and no license. With Ted Danson, Zack Galifianakis, and Patton Oswalt involved, it's definitely worth a shot.
