For the past few years Delocated has existed as one of the stranger live action shows on Adult Swim (but always in good company). Jon Glaser's creation ended its third season last April and returns tonight for a special series finale. Although the show will be missed, you can relive the first two seasons with Delocated: The Complete Seasons One and Two on DVD. Watch, enjoy, and celebrate the fact that a guy in a ski mask with a voice modulator exploiting his family's situation in the Witness Protection Program for reality TV got to be a real comedy show.
Last year, Jon Glaser's witness protection comedy Delocated ended its third season in a way that made a fourth season seem uncertain. Today, Adult Swim announced that the show is ending, and they're airing a one-off special series finale episode next month. Entitled "The Frrt Identity," the finale special is a half-hour long and sees "Jon" waking up on a New York shore, suffering from amnesia. It's sad to see one of the weirdest and funniest shows on TV ending, but it looks like this finale will serve as a nice ending. The episode airs Thursday, March 7th at 12:30am, but you can check out a preview after the [...]
Wow, it’s mentally exhausting just trying to remember everything that went down in last night’s Delocated.
“Friend” packed more plot and story into one 22-minute episode than most hour-long shows do over the course of three episodes. It began with “Jon” experiencing an existential crisis upon the realization that he doesn’t have any friends. TB, The Glaze, and David don’t count. What “Jon” does have, though, is cash — thanks to his late ex-wife’s life insurance money. Seizing on this, “Jon” decides to throw together a $1 million “Best Friend Challenge,” and invites New Yorkers to compete to be his best friend.
The competition consists of an American Idol-style [...]
The thing about Delocated is that even when it’s not firing on all cylinders, it’s still one of the funniest shows on television. Last night’s episode, “Midnight Munchingtons,” was a prime example.
In terms of story arc, not a whole lot happens. No appearances by the Mirminskys, no David, and no murders. Sigh. The episode opens with “Jon” waking up to find a half-eaten sandwich in his bed. Fearing the worst, “Jon” and TB assume one of the Mirminskys dropped into “Jon’s” loft by helicopter and left behind the evidence as a scare tactic.
“Jon’s” life coach The Glaze, who gets considerable screen time this episode, suspects “Jon” is [...]
It begins as just another interview with Jon Glaser of Delocated, who drinks some beers with paper wings and talks about the benefits of writing and performing on Late Night with Conan O'Brien. Once Glaser gets into the limitations of playing a character whose face is concealed and how season 3 will see Jon training to go pro as a basketball player, however, his charming anecdotes about his son are all but impossible to pay attention to because the interviewer is simultaneously getting a tattoo of an ambiguously angry pheasant. I want an interview with this interviewer. Possible questions: How were you still asking questions and not grimacing [...]
