Jonathan Ames Bought Fans $1,600 of Drinks at Bored to Death Funeral
Bored to Death, may it rest in peace, was given a lovely send-off to the great underworld (overworld? What happens to TV shows when they die?) when creator Jonathan Ames bought fans $1,600 worth of drinks at the Brooklyn Inn on Wednesday night. John Hodgman was in attendance, too, and noted that “we’ve seen now in history that shows can be saved” – so maybe the show is only Bored to the brink of death. Anyway, Bored to Death’s fan base was likely more easily localized than most, since the show is so Brooklyn-centric. But the example it (along with certain flash mobs) sets of television fans meeting in real space is pretty cool! Especially the part where they drink for free.
