Does nobody watch this show? I was just introduced to it, and it's got all the elements to be a stoner classic. The premise is that this former teen runaway/crack whore goes back to high school to get her diploma at the age of 46. Never mind that the actual actress--Amy Sedaris, who is David Sedaris, the author of Me Talk Pretty One Day's sister-- cannot be a day over 30. Absolutely nothing in the show is done realistically, it all hovers on the edge of absurdism. For example, the characters father is frozen is this horror pose every time we see him, but when he's off camera he does things like play the piano, take a bath and vacation in Greece.

Also, the actress who plays Eve on Angel is one of the bitchy popular high school girls.

It's a Comedy Central show, I'm not sure when it's on as I saw it on a friends DVD. Perhaps they're not airing it anymore, as my internet searching rbings up 3 seasons available on DVD but no airing time...

You might like it if you're not a stoner--do you have a stoner aesthetic? If you like things that stoners tend to like, eg Monty Python, Cheech and Chong, dude Where's My Car then you might like this.

Amy Sedaris is turning 43 this year...she was doing the show around age 38...and there's going to be a SwC movie.

She's that old? Wow.... even in her ridiculous Jerry get up she looks young to me.

So you obviously know about this show--do you lke it? I'm interested in other people's reactions.

I think I only saw a couple of episodes years ago in the U.S...not sure it ever ran here. I remember liking it, I should search out the DVDs.

So I can't reccommend anyone watch it, as it doesn't seem to be airing--like all the good shows, dammit!--but for those of you who enjoy downloaded (and thus commercial free!) TV, this would be a cool thing to check out.
