This will be the 2nd stab NBC takes at redoing ‘The IT Crowd.’
Hear me out: I actually think that the concept of The IT Crowd is totally adaptable for an American audience. Yes, people should just shut up and stream it on Netflix, but like The Office, I think that the set up could be rejiggered for an American sensibility with the right three comedic actors in those three lead parts.
My mom let me know out of the blue today that she is coming to visit next week and that she will be staying one week, or two weeks, or maybe a full month. Oh, and she told me all about the latest family drama and everyone’s pretty much doomed.
RogerEbert.com featured my Gone Girl piece in its weekly link round up, which made me feel very proud of myself because it’s like I finally made the leap from making doofy blog posts about hot guys’ butts to writing legitimate film criticism about penises.
And then, like two minutes later, I was on my hands and knees, cleaning cat piss off the floor.
So, I guess I’m right where I need to be in life right now.
