Clear your calendar because this Friday from 10 – 12 PT (that’s 1-3 ET for the math challenged among us) The Birthday Boys and Bob Odenkirk will be taking your questions on Reddit (during their The History of Sketch on TV AMA).

If this AMA is anything like what happened during the AMA that Bob, David Cross and Brian Posehn did for Mr. Show, it’s going to be epic.

The Birthday Boys: Mike Recaps “Skewered”

When I sat down to write the recap of The Birthday Boys Episode 7 entitled Skewered! I couldn’t help but think of how much it resembles a football game. No, I’m serious! Take a look and you’ll know EXACTLY what I mean.

First, the episode “kicks off” with a sketch about a gang of frustrated Wall Street stockbrokers. The Birthday Boys then “advance down the field” with a sketch that takes place in an uncomfortable Southern courtroom complete with era-appropriate “jerseys” (or costumes). That sketch “tackles” its way into a short piece about a man pondering a potential reality. This serves as a “runner” throughout the show. The Birthday Boys then take a “TV Time Out” and go to “commercial.”

We’re back and the “football action” is really heating up with sketch that holds a magnifying glass up to the state of television that’s over-crowded with channels. Crowded? Like a football stadium? YES!

Whoops. There’s a “flag on the play” but don’t worry. It’s a good thing! It means The Birthday Boys do a sketch about the forefathers of aviation. The show then “rushes for a gain of 8 yards, gaining a first down and are now in field goal range.” By that, I of course mean The Birthday Boys do the second beat of the sketch about pondering a potential reality.

The episode “huddles up” in a sketch about a pioneer in the world of sound effects. In the final “march towards the goal line,” the show pulls out a “Statue of Liberty play” with sketches about silly restaurant appetizer names, a commercial for a less-than practical airline, and an interview with an extremely old man.

It’s a fun show! One might even say it’s a “home run” of an episode. ;-)
