Happy news for fans of Dr. Katz: Professional Therapist: the second season of the Comedy Central animated series about a shrink whose clients all happen to be comedians will be out on DVD November 21. The show starred Jonathan Katz as a therapist who tried to help his patients by, essentially, setting them up so they could tell jokes. The series also introduced many people to the comedic genius that is Jon Benjamin, who played Katz's son Ben. Benjamin would go on to voice Coach McGuirk on Home Movies, and occasionally offer his dry delivery to other cartoons such as Aqua Teen Hunger Force and Venture Bros. Looks like I have yet another DVD set to ad to my "To Buy Later" list on Amazon. Look for Garry Shandling, Steven Wright, Rita Rudner, and Emo Philips to appear in this season.

Jon Benjamin was a force behind two of my favorite animated series, Home Movies and Dr. Katz. He returned briefly with Lucy, Daughter of the Devil on Adult Swim, but now he's teaming up with David Cross of Mr. Show and Arrested Development for a new animated series for Comedy Central called Freak Show. The show centers on a group of super heroes who work as sideshow performers in their day to day lives. Considering Cross' voice work on Adult Swim shows like Tom Goes to the Mayor and Aqua Teen Hungerforce my guess is that this new series is going to be hysterical. There's no solid airdate just yet, though it will most likely air later this year, or in early 2007.
You might think that fifteen years is too long to wait to make a sequel to Backdraft, but that's only if you're Ron Howard. If you're alternative comics Eugene Mirman, Jon Benjamin, and Sam Seder, you forge ahead and make a sequel anyway, despite not really knowing a whole lot about the original film. It's called Backdraft II: Backdraftier, and I haven't seen anything this funny in quite some time. Please, won't you share in my joy? Mirman explains he wanted to make sequels to movies that didn't need a sequel. That makes absolutely no sense, and that's why it's brilliant.
