OUT OF BLEEPS
Start at 28 minutes in. It’s James Adomian playing this guy named Tom Leykis, who is an actual, real life horrible misogynist AM radio guy. It makes me laugh until my stomach hurts. It is also a good example of how you can have a misogynist character in a comedy thing without the thing itself being hateful? Also amy poehler is such an amazing straight man.
This episode starts good and goes somewhere transcendent. Also, it highlights one of the ways the show’s strengths, which is just like, the Olympics but instead of good athletes it’s just people with really great imaginations.
FARTS AND PROCREATION
This is a weird one to include as a primer. It’s maybe my favorite, but it’s like a particularly stinky cheese. Like, whatever the acquired taste you need to like this show I think this is the episode that rewards it the most. But it also just makes me laugh and is like, a break-in-case-of-emergency gloomy day antidote type of episode.
