It may seem somewhat odd to grieve the end of a television program, but I am. I lament the loss of Bored to Death more than the loss of Steve Jobs (sorry nearly everyone else who seemed oddly moved by the death of a creative visionary and bully).
There will be no final epilogue for my heroes Jonathan, George and most especially, Ray. That is beyond sad to me. It is tragic.
Stories need a beginning, a middle and an end; not a cancellation.
If you think I'm over reacting, imagine reading your child a bed time story, suddenly stoping three chapters into it and then ripping the book to shreds.
I don't think you'd do that.
I had nothing to do with the making of the above video. The montage was made by somebody with time on their hands, the footage is from my late, beloved teevee program, and the music is by Jason Schwartzman's band, Coconut Records.
