Creature Comforts

For those of you who have given up on network TV...right now we are both absolutely cracking up over Creature Comforts on CBS. This show, created by the Wallace and Grommit people, superimposes "slice o' life" interviews of just folks upon Claymation animals. It is too funny...literally, it's too funny to have a snowball's chance on mass-market television. But we're enjoying it right now.

For a real treat, rent the original short film, and the original British version of the series (there are one or two seasons on DVD). It's actually even funnier.

While we're reviewing contemporary media, I thought of you today while watching the The Waitress. A movie where the heroine's sensuality is all bound up in her inventive (and narrative!) pie-baking skills (shades of Chocolat) seems right up your alley! Have you caught it yet?

Anon: We'll have to check it out. Thanks!

V: No. And I'm afraid of making pie crust.;-) But maybe some day...
