Wish Upon a Box Set: DVDs I Would Buy (Nov 17)

1. Big Apple – The short-lived cop show, written by David Milch and starring Ed O’Neil. I don’t even know if enough episodes were completed to wrap up the story arc about strip clubs and the Russian Mafia, but the episodes that aired were absolutely fascinating. Too seedy and dense for its time, it’s still worth watching, particularly in our modern world which is know for its seediness and destiny. Besides, it’s the first team-up of Milch and O’Neil – pure magic!

2. Dog Bites Man – This Comedy Central gem starred a number of improv actors masquerading as a local news team. They’d conduct their interviews and shoot remotes Ali G-style, with unaware and uncomfortable civilians adding to the fun. A masterpiece of awkward entertainment.
