Pointless Nonsense

Posted in tv by Bill on January 11, 2012

I’m taking a break between Stargate seasons to knock out a couple of British shows that are on Netflix. The first is a documentary series, Stephen Fry in America. I first was informed of its existence from this video of him at an Auburn-Alabama football game, which pretty much gives you the idea of it. He travels to all 50 states (shortchanging some with a minute or so, like Delaware and Idaho) across 6 episodes, and it’s interesting to get an outsider’s perspective (sort of, I think he actually lives in America a lot of the time). The best two parts so far (I’m on episode 4 of 6) are Fry’s complete hatred of Miami (he seems to have loved just about everywhere else, but had nothing good to say at all about Miami) and Ted Turner being a kind of hilarious jerk towards him when he visited Turner’s Montana bison ranch.
