In which a group of graying eternal amateurs discuss their passions, interests and obsessions, among them: movies, art, politics, evolutionary biology, taxes, writing, computers, these kids these days, and lousy educations.

"STBD" is Back

Michael Blowhard writes:

Dear Blowhards --

I'm happy to see that -- after a wee break -- the affable and excellent comic soap opera webseries "Something to be Desired" is once again posting new episodes. (The latest one is here, but why not enjoy all of Season 4?) This Pittsburgh-made microbudget production is an irreverent marvel, full of likable wits, fizzy cut-ups, and outsized personalities. It also has an easygoing and winning personality of its own, half slick (in a good way) and half homegrown (also in a good way). Unlike many TV sitcoms, it's easy to grow fond of; it doesn't out-hip itself, and it doesn't take your reactions for granted, let alone try to boss them around. It goes its own merry way.

I celebrated "Something to be Desired" back here.

Youth: utterly fascinated with itself.

Ahoy. Just noticed this recent review -- glad to see you're glad we're back! It would be depressing if we took a breather and no one missed us...

As for riccpic's comment, 'tis true. Of course, I believe we can say the same thing for middle age and maturity... except for the part where they're fascinated with youth again, too...
