You need a steak and a vitamin.

Amy Sedaris was on Conan last week and that appearance alone got me to netflix Strangers With Candy: The Movie. The film is... well, it's OK. But I laughed harder at these nine minutes than anything in the movie*. Enjoy:


*= OK, that might not be totally true. I laughed really hard when Colbert, as the science teacher, yells at his class "Eyes to the back of the room!" and then has a total ugly-crying meltdown. Ugly-crying meltdowns are the best.

The movie, I agree, was okay. But the ugly crying meltdown (while hilarious) is one of the parts that were just repeated from the TV show. I think, actually, in the show it was Jellineck, not Noblet, who has the crying fit and makes everyone look away, but nonetheless, it's old news. Are writing new jokes so hard?

And I'm still pissed they made Noblet into a science teacher.

Confession: I've never actually seen any of the TV show... so it was all new to me. Should I start at the beginning? Or is there a season I should skip to?

Well, I think Seasons 1 and 3 are the best -- and it doesn't necessarily matter that much (the show's not exactly a character development kind of show) but I think you might as well start at the beginning and go all the way through. The first season has my favorite episode (in which Jerri's lockermate is accused of being a retard) and definitely sets up the premise.

I watch at least an episode of that show a week. It never gets unfunny to me. And Stephen Colbert's history lessons are spectacular. Not sure which I enjoy more:

"Pol Pot, kind and benevolent leader of Cambodia . . . or was he?"

or

"Fidel Castro dressed up as Marilyn Monroe and gave President Kennedy a case of syphilis so bad it blew the back of his head off."

nobody ugly-cries like Colbert does.

btw, the film is not non-stuop funny but it is definitely hilarious. they kept the outrageous.
