7 'DOCUMENTARY NOW' EPISODES, RANKED
I'm pretty much a sucker for anything Fred Armisen or Bill Hader do, so I enjoyed all of these episodes from the first season of Documentary Now. Ranked by how much I found them to be perfect and hilarious.
- 1.A Town, A Gangster, A FestivalAn Iceland town celebrates an American gangster. This episode is so well done I wondered if it was a parody or a real event with some nice guest stars crashing the festival.
- 2.Kunuk UncoveredThere is so much packed into this episode that is docu-perfect but the stuff about Hollywood and filmmaking slays me.
- 3.Gentle and Soft: The Story of the Blue Jean Committee: Part 1The guest experts are outstanding. The story is perfect. The music is spot-on. I know because I was there.
- 4.Gentle and Soft: The Story of the Blue Jean Committee: Part 2
- 5.Sandy PassageIt takes a dark turn. A dark and hilarious turn.
- 6.The Eye Doesn't LieThe Thin Blue Line and an unsolved murder. And a balloon guy.
- 7.DRONEZ: The Hunt for El ChingonFinding a Mexican Drug Lord. With a bunch of wannabe online hipster doofuses.
