Congratulations, you have made it through another long weekend. It is officially the start of summer. You can wear white shoes and drink gin and tonics at lunch. While those things are great, there are bad parts of summer. Remember that traffic jam you sat in for five hours yesterday? And the mosquitoes you were swatting away? Yeah, we’re sticking with out motto: Stay inside.

Here’s what to watch this week on IFC:


Did that traffic jam keep you from watching our all-day marathon of “Arrested Development” yesterday? We have back-to-back episodes of the Bluths starting at 6 p.m. ET.


Who needs to read books when you have Vanessa Redgrave starring in Virginia Woolf’s “Mrs. Dalloway” at 11:15 a.m. ET. Save all that reading to brush up on the Green Lantern comics so you can scoff at your friends before the movie hits theaters.


Before the summer travel season gets underway, remind yourself not to be a drug mule by watching “Maria Full of Grace” at 1:15 p.m. ET. It’s both a valuable life lesson and a heartbreaking and beautiful film.


The fifth and final season of the Whitest Kids U’Know continues on its merry way with a new episode of the crudest, crassest, and most historically accurate sketch comedy ever. The fun starts at 10 p.m. ET


Scare yourself silly with an all-day marathon of horror. Kick things off with “An American Haunting” at 12:15 p.m. ET, then stick around for William Shatner’s campfest “Kingdom of the Spiders,” Wes Craven’s “Cursed,” Rob Zombie’s “The Devil’s Rejects,” and “Saw.” Don’t bother thinking about getting some fresh air, you’ll be too scared to go outside.


Too much is never enough when it comes to David Cross and Bob Odenkirk. Catch back-to-back episodes of “Mr. Show with Bob and David” beginning at 12:15 p.m. ET.

Millennial Wisdom

Charles Speaks For Us All

Get to know Charles, the social media whiz of Brockmire.

Posted by on

He may be an unlikely radio producer Brockmire, but Charles is #1 when it comes to delivering quips that tie a nice little bow on the absurdity of any given situation.

Charles also perfectly captures the jaded outlook of Millennials. Or at least Millennials as mythologized by marketers and news idiots. You know who you are.

Played superbly by Tyrel Jackson Williams, Charles’s quippy nuggets target just about any subject matter, from entry-level jobs in social media (“I plan on getting some experience here, then moving to New York to finally start my life.”) to the ramifications of fictional celebrity hookups (“Drake and Taylor Swift are dating! Albums y’all!”). But where he really nails the whole Millennial POV thing is when he comments on America’s second favorite past-time after type II diabetes: baseball.

Here are a few pearls.

On Baseball’s Lasting Cultural Relevance

“Baseball’s one of those old-timey things you don’t need anymore. Like cursive. Or email.”

On The Dramatic Value Of Double-Headers

“The only thing dumber than playing two boring-ass baseball games in one day is putting a two-hour delay between the boring-ass games.”

On Sartorial Tradition

“Is dressing badly just a thing for baseball, because that would explain his jacket.”

On Baseball, In A Nutshell

“Baseball is a f-cked up sport, and I want you to know it.”

Learn more about Charles in the behind-the-scenes video below.

And if you were born before the late ’80s and want to know what the kids think about Baseball, watch Brockmire Wednesdays at 10P on IFC.

Crown Jules

Amanda Peet FTW on Brockmire

Amanda Peet brings it on Brockmire Wednesday at 10P on IFC.

On Brockmire, Jules is the unexpected yin to Jim Brockmire’s yang. Which is saying a lot, because Brockmire’s yang is way out there. Played by Amanda Peet, Jules is hard-drinking, truth-spewing, baseball-loving…everything Brockmire is, and perhaps what he never expected to encounter in another human.

“We’re the same level of functional alcoholic.”

But Jules takes that commonality and transforms it into something special: a new beginning. A new beginning for failing minor league baseball team “The Frackers”, who suddenly about-face into a winning streak; and a new beginning for Brockmire, whose life gets a jumpstart when Jules lures him back to baseball. As for herself, her unexpected connection with Brockmire gives her own life a surprising and much needed goose.

“You’re a Goddamn Disaster and you’re starting To look good to me.”

This palpable dynamic adds depth and complexity to the narrative and pushes the series far beyond expected comedy. See for yourself in this behind-the-scenes video (and brace yourself for a unforgettable description of Brockmire’s genitals)…

Want more about Amanda Peet? She’s all over the place, and has even penned a recent self-reflective piece in the New York Times.

And of course you can watch the Jim-Jules relationship hysterically unfold in new episodes of Brockmire, every Wednesday at 10PM on IFC.

Draught Pick

Sam Adams “Keeps It Brockmire”

All New Brockmire airs Wednesdays at 10P on IFC.

Posted by on

From baseball to beer, Jim Brockmire calls ’em like he sees ’em.


It’s no wonder at all, then, that Sam Adams would reach out to Brockmire to be their shockingly-honest (and inevitably short-term) new spokesperson. Unscripted and unrestrained, he’ll talk straight about Sam—and we’ll take his word. Check out this new testimonial for proof:

See more Brockmire Wednesdays at 10P on IFC, presented by Samuel Adams. Good f***** beer.
