I have seen that blond girl in episode three before and I don't know where. And now I shall ponder this in the back of my mind all day. When she was much younger, I think, maybe a kid.

According to the youtube description, that's Ashley Johnson. But, I don't know anything else about her.

The Avengers. She was also a child actor. Mel Gibson's kid in What Women Want, for example.

Is the ending supposed to be a deliberate homage to Bill Bixby leaving town in the Incredible Hulk?

Ashley Johnson has done a fair bit of work since she played Chrissy in the last two seasons of Growing Pains, including a lot of voice acting (Terra in Teen Titans, Gretchen in Recess). She also did the voice and mocap for the female lead in The Last of Us.

This is my life and it makes me squirm to see that someone has posted it online without my permission. Do you think I can get royalties?

God, I love Mike Judge. (episode 1)

Sure, have a seat while I look for my checkbook. While you wait, would you like anything to drink? I have tea, lemonade, beer...

I'm very much enjoying some of these JASH miniseries. My favorite so far is Catherine: A Story in Twelve Parts starring Jenny Slate.

This is why I always bring my own coffee, you know.

You and your fucking coffee. Didn't you see what you'd spill it on? You've ruined everything.

I don't think this type of humour is my thing. Because instead of being amused, I want to murder him.

I only spilt a little on the cat, not my fault it run away when I opened the door, then got bit by a rabid fox, wandered half-dead into the presidential debate at the local school and gave everyone there the zombie plague. Geez.

I'm embarrassed that when I first saw the name "Ashley Johnson", this is exactly who came to mind. Even though I have no specific memory of ever giving a fuck about this. And the name is very nondescript. I'd like this to be an indication that I just have a really good memory for faces and names, but I know it's not true.

Damn 80s media saturation. Think of all the important information I could be storing in my head instead of the casts of heart-warming past-their-prime sitcoms. I can't even remember if Growing Pains was the one with Tracey Gold, the one with Alex P. Keaton, or the one with Susanne Somers.

Also, the web show. It is funny. I can only hope mine is as well done.

First episode features Jenica Bergere from the Drew Carey show.

And I enjoy awkward humor, but that was particularly painful for some reason.

Thanks for mentioning Mike Judge. The voice made me think it was Matt Walsh at first (from Upright Citizens), but when it clearly wasn't him I was left trying to figure out where I had heard it before. Oddly, I think YouTube put a Beavis and Butthead clip in the right hand column.

As for coffee guy, I think he's Bartleby's great-grandson.

My first thought, beyond a mildly positive reaction to the premise, is that it reinforces that fact that a good story does not have to be complicated - and often is not. Although I can get into twisty-turny narratives with surprise arcs and detail overload just as much as the next nerd, a good storyteller can tell a compelling story using just a few elements handled elegantly and cleverly. I appreciate that.

This is so good.

Ashley Johnson was also on an episode of Tabletop.

As a coffee hater, I enjoy this. Because coffee is the nasty-tasting omnipresent devil and everyone has it on them at all times, even in completely inappropriate places. And as a non-coffee-drinker, I'd totally be that girl in episode 3, which is why I refuse to make the swill. Trust me, you don't want a non-drinker to make that drink...

Actually, his whole problem boils down to asking people who don't like or make coffee (or are busy) to do it for him. Get thee to a Starbucks, dude.

This is the same guy who brings his coffee on a standing-room-only bus, isn't he? I bet that's a future episode.
