if stoney and roughty can…

… plug a show as horrible as curb your enthusiasm, i don’t feel bad about letting you all in on a little secret.  that secret is called John From Cincinnati.  (unfortunately, google has not yet realized how great this show is, so there are no images that would give you a feel for the cast and setting.)  rip if you must, but i have to warn you — this series is the shizznizzazzle. 

ok, i’ll set the stage.  it takes place in cali., right on the beach, probably la, but i dont know. 

there’s a family of surfers — a granddad (about 50), a dad (maybe mid 30’s), and a son (12 or 13).  they are all fucking shredders and have each been very successful in the pro surfing world. 

there’s this guy named john.  he’s not from cincinnati, but you all know this if you have tvs.

there’s rampant heroin usage and massive references to reefer, but i haven’t seen any cheefed as yet.

there’s a fly, bombdiddly surf shop and aliens and skateboarding and smoking hot honies.  there’s suicide and bone-breaking and miracles and gnarly waves.  there’s also  ed o’neill. 

if this isn’t enough to interest you, i recommend that you view the following video from the wwwdotyoutubedotcomwebsite.

and while we’re at it, why don’t you check out the opening credits?  this is a very good song, too, if you ask me.

you owe it to yourself to check this show out.  i never thought i’d like it, but i am hooked on it now.  it’s cool.  check it out. 

plus if enough of you subscribe to hbo, i get a free stuffed tony soprano doll.

    Sorry Suit, we plugged “Arrested Development”, not Curb Your Enthusiasm (which is a good show by the way). Secondly, that is not Ed O’Neill, that is Al Bundy. Ed O’Neill is only his mild-mannered alter ego.

    My favorite characters are the boy, the bird and the surfer girl. They are the only ones who aren’t totally whacked out. The final episode of The Sopranos had almost 12 million viewers. Only 3 million of those stuck around for less than 5 minutes to watch the first episode of John from Cincinnati. The following week only about one million people watched the show. So better enjoy it now cause it’s not gonna make it back for a second season at this rate. As John would say, “The end is near!!”

    roughty, you’re right. i just got al’s name confused with somebody else. shoulda known. arrested development, curb your enthusiasm, it’s all the same bologna to me. j from c has some originality; that’s what distinguishes it from the mindless drivel going on elsewhere.

    guess who, identify yourself, or prepare for immediate disregard of all your future comments — especially those pertaining to the best new show on television.
