Maybe because it’s Friday, maybe because it’s the start of a big three-day weekend, but I have to balance out the chipper post about Mozart with this one.
Remember the surreal 1980’s sensation, It’s Garry Shandling’s Show? Man, I loved that as a kid. Even though Jerry Seinfeld’s show would become far more popular, Shandling’s was first, and actually even more of an experimental show about nothing. But far beyond being ironic and humorously angsty, it broke more TV conventions in more ways than anything else had, before or since.
And, of course, the best part was the theme song, a textbook exercise in meta-fiction and doggerel, but boy was it catchy. Just try getting it out of your head for the rest of the weekend.
