“Bored to Death” picked up for second season


After struggling through a meager premiere, HBO’s newest show, “Bored to Death,” is finally living up to the hype. The last two episodes have been more endearing than anything, ditching the flowery dialogue that plagued the opener. Jason Schwartzman, Zach Galifianakis, and Ted Danson have all done a great job realizing their characters, all the while creating a humorous and engaging atmosphere.

Thus, I’m pleased to report that the show has been renewed for a second season. The creators of “Bored to Death” owe the new seasons of “Curb Your Enthusiasm” (in which the cast of “Seinfeld” reunites) and “Entourage” (which just aired their season finale) a huge thank you. Sunday nights on HBO have been a pure joy to watch these past three weeks. Hopefully, skeptical viewers will continue tuning in since “Entourage” just concluded. As “Bored to Death” continues to develop a following, HBO obviously has faith that the series will prosper.
