There's only 3 types of people in the world. There's Gumbel, there's friends of Gumbel, and there's Tight Dave.

Is this one of those "the abyss gazes also into you" situations?

I love Gumble.

First one: Pretty good...
Second one: Getting better
Third one: Seemed to drag, skipped it
Four: Brill so far.

But Gumbel's unexplained rage is a little odd. Especially because the actor seems to do best with the non-rage (i.e. the interview scene, the singing scene, etc).

This borrows liberally from Bronson.

Eps 5 & 6 don't continue the story, such as it is and are very weird but the atmosphere is well done.

Let me just say, if you don't watch to the end of episode 3, you're missing out.

The man is wearing pleated front khakis in the first episode. I can't watch this unfashionable shit.

I watched 5 first. I don't know what to do now.

Yeah, I started with episode 5 too. Turns out that's the best one, as far as I can tell.

Love. It.
Love it.

Good to see Channel 101 still has good crazy shit.

Wow episode 5 was just a lipstick smeared dwarf short of being a David Lynch film, but my vote is for 3, if we're voting.

This would be my kind of weird.

No no no. Go back. The pace is fantastic. The end is a little much but the whole build-up is great.

"If I can't see my mom, my mom can't see me."

At the start of Episode 1, I thought he was channeling Don Logan, but then I realized, no, it's Wilson, i.e. TELL HIM I'M FUCKING COMING

I think the best are 1-4. Eps 5 and 6 stray a bit far from the original conceit, although Alma really shines in all of them. Her best is the aforementioned Razzle Dazzle.

The best one is probably the first. It's pitch perfect to me and includes his very excellent Gumbel impression.
