    I watched Break A Leg today for the first time. Very funny. Lots of people are taking notice. I like how they are not afraid to use silence. You don't see that too often on TV. I decided to have a little fun with this Minisode: David's Bad Day.

Great minisode guys, thanks for calling me to be a part of it. Really, thanks. Thanks.

Check out Jimmy Scotch Live! in Deep Fried Cheese at the Climate Theater in San Francisco. Only two weekends left!

The minisode was awesome! Loved the part with the guy who didn't think David could handle licking an envelope..hillarious. Just the way the whole scene was done was spot on with the dry conversational humor and everything. Fantastic job and can't wait to see the rest of these webisodes!
"Pogo? What is that--is that like a monkey?"

Forgot to say, the ending credits were done extremely well! Really liked the way the highlighter was used to show the character or position in the crew, ect. Very original and unique.

Definitely well done, and a big thanks for letting me a part of it. Pogo was hilarious, too. Can't wait for more!

"You took someone else's baby?!?!"
This minisode is amazing.
It's a lot creepier than the actual episodes have been.
But that's a GOOD thing.
I like creepy.
I can relate to it.
Pogo is probably the creepiest person ever.
And when Chase walks by, all covered in blood, that made it so much more amazing.
I can't wait for episode three!

David's bad day kinda sounds like my typical day. Except that pregnancy thing. I .. I don't do that. Much.

GREAT MINISODE GUYS!! Looking forward to more.

What the hell is a pogo and why isn't he in the show more?

September 6, 2007 | Unregistered CommenterRasmus D.

I'm going to re-name my dog pogo.

dan questionmark? who is that
and why was pogo's goatee more impressive than david's

love the show

September 27, 2007 | Unregistered Commentercloudier_days

Pogo is a coffee-fetcher. It's how they roll (to Rasmus -- who, by the way, totally sounds like a wizard.)

Dan Questionmark is one of the extras in the cafe. That is not, as far as I know, his last name. Sadly, we don't know his last name. Hell, we hardly know his first name.

Pogo is older, wiser and more Asian than David. So, you now, that's just how life works.

Marilyn is so pregnant! And David is stealing Babies! and it looks like POGO is too!!!

yuri, i think you're an awesome actor. i'd like to see you in more roles. your character kinda reminds me of michael bluth from arrested development. then again, i can see that show is part of the inspiration for this one.
p.s. pogo looks like my english teacher O.o
