Internet TV: Horrible People

Well, since NBC refuses to come up with more original programming, we’re going to have to look elsewhere — particularly on cable.  And while we’re waiting for the upcoming seasons of Battlestar and Damages, the Internet can always provide us with something worth watching.

Take this show: Horrible People. It’s a soap opera spoof with creepy romantic and familial relations (with a mother who is a basically a more profane version of Lucille Bluth). It’s chock full of alternative comedy superstars (Kristen Schaal) and alumni of The State (Joe Lo Truglio).

I’ve watched the first few episodes and it’s somewhat funny and pretty entertaining — I don’t want to build it up as incredible (if you want something more inspired, check out the new VGL Gay Boys episode).  But the holidays are coming and the office is going to be empty, so maybe you can shut the door and watch all of these in a row.

Also, the star, Mather Zickel, is kind of dreamy if you get past the turtleneck and the hair product.
