Bad Press (Part 3)

The second episode (Part 3) of the independent sitcom, BREAK A LEG. Brought to you by the acclaimed viewers of Arrested Development, Scrubs and The Office.

-David must sign a deal with the devil -- or, in this case, a creepy, ex-child actor named Jimmy Scotch -- to help stop the Stan Marley fiasco. Unfortunately, it is a deal with the devil -- and those almost never turn out well.

This is possibly my favorite part of any episode. Perhaps because of Jimmy Scotch’s quirks like: drawing pictures on the chalkboard, the umbrella, standing strangely close to David, cutting people off mid sentence, the lighter gag, etc.

Some of my favorite lines:
"You know David, our Amber."

“We’re not happy unless you’re not happy.”

"I thought you died in a stampede."
"Noo, you made that story up."

"Kid’s got arms like a toddler."

"Hey you're that goat legs kid right?"
"That goat legs man now, David."

"We’re just a regular guild now. That lives in the sewers. And represents child actors."

Some of my favorite parts of this part:
-Jimmy and David talking alone scene.
-The Humphrey development: I’m eager to see where this “same guy?” gag is going to go.
-The conference call in adjacent rooms.

The pace dragged slightly, in my opinion, in these places:
-The Mint monologue, although I liked the "clank, clank."
-The fax gag may have had more impact if it was subtler (i.e., didn’t take so much time).
-Letting the Mint Condition singer finish the note and letting the CD spin fully around went on just a second too long in my opinion. (I personally don’t mind having to pause something to read it in order to keep the pace going). Bringing the Mint Condition back for the end was a good touch.

Overall: great job. I look forward to more episodes.

You thought the monologue went on too long?
I thought it was perfect.
It was completely awkward and great.
And later, when he's STILL talking.
I didn't notice that until last time I watched it.
I wanted to hug him.

Jimmy scares the hell out of me.

You guys are fucking awesome! New one comes out tomorrow right?

Yes, ma'am, Crazybitch. It'll be out tommorrow -- or, ideally, 12 am today (or, you know, technically tommorrow.)

I can't believe no one noticed this.

The orange that Jennifer had been attacking the whole episode. During the fax jam scene, he finally gets through the rind, and inside is a smaller orange.

I think that's why the fax scene was so long. You're not supposed to be watching that.

"I'll kill you , see what kind of ******* flower you turn out to be!"

Oh wow, Yuri.

Using lines from Courting 101? NICE.
"That sweater looks really becoming on you..."
