By now, unless you're just plain dumb, you probably have heard that Amazon.com is making its own programing. Not only will they be producing their own shows they are letting you help with deciding what to make. By simply watching and giving your opinion, yes someone cares what you think finally, you can help shape the next generation of entertainment.
So why are we wasting your valuable time in telling you all this? Are we agents from Amazon Studios? No we simply want you to do our bidding and help our buddies from The Grawlix win this god damned thing. Looks like we just tipped our hand.
Since there are those pesky little copyright laws, and we're not terribly excited about being sued, we are only able to link to the pilot of Those Who Can't. Please stop reading this and go to Amazon now and watch. We'll wait.
You didn't do it did you? This is why we don't trust people anymore. Ok here's the trailer for Those Who Can't that we CAN show you. This should whet your appetite enough to go back to that Amazon link and watch the show now. Don't make us turn this car around.
So how can you, fans of podcasts and lovers of comedy, help these gents get this pilot picked up? Watch and review. Then tell your friends to do the same. Basically a giant comedic Ponzi scheme. What will this mean for us? For you? Who gives a shit. What will it mean for the Grawlix boys? Everything.
I recently had the opportunity to chat with Adam Cayton-Holland, Andrew Orvedahl, and Ben Roy to get insight as to the process and outcome of this whole project. What I found was impressive. Firstly, and I think most importantly, these guys are real. I am trying very hard to refrain from using of the term "down to earth", but all 3 are the most genuine and sincere dudes I have met in a while. The fact that they are doing what they love in the city they love and are still humble enough to thank US? Three words my friends. Char-ac-ter.
When we think of the monumental task of filming a birthday party or a homemade sex tape it becomes painfully obvious that making a 20 minute pilot, and let's hope an entire series, is a big job. But these guys are no strangers to making very funny videos. With damn near 30 years of comedy between them being funny is not an issue. Team that with the creative cinematography of the Nix Bros and you have comedy gold.
So what is the official The Comedy Buffet review of Those Who Can't? Glad you asked.
Drawing from their own idiosyncrasies and amplifying them Adam, Andrew, and Ben have created characters that are so absurdly funny you can hardly wait to see what happens next. As each event in episode 1 unfolds our boys find themselves making the poorest of decisions possible. You know, doing the things you yourself would do but your conscience says "uh, you know better".
I think we can all remember certain teachers who got under our skin or were slightly off kilter. Educators like Mr. Payton (Adam) the Spanish teacher whose pedantic style and overconfidence makes it easy to love and hate him at the same time. Mr. Fairbell (Andrew) Buchanan High School's coach whose timidity and naive nature have him on the receiving end of jokes, and dodge balls. Lastly Mr. Shoemaker (Ben) the History teacher from hell taking the hands on approach to teaching to a whole new level.
So let me ask you, did you really stop reading this post and watch the show? If you did and still came back to finish reading this review then you are my new favorite person. If you did not then you are dead to me. Now let me waste more of your time by showing you some of The Grawlix boys favorite episodes from their web series. As well as my favorite. Then go and watch Those Who Can't.
Thanks for letting me ramble,

I used the pink oven. I turned out ok.
