Ted Danson, Jonathan Ames, and Jason Schwartzman from HBO's "Bored to Death" from Thomas Attila Lewis on Vimeo.

The season finale of HBO's "Bored to Death" is this Sunday at 9:30pm and it is a must-watch. There are plenty of McShows out there but this is not one of them and nor will it ever be. The brainchild of author and memoirist Jonathan Ames, the show about an author and part-time amateur private investigator bursts with uncompromised originality in every episode. Jason Schwartzman plays an "emotionally autobiographical" version of Jonathan Ames, navigating through life, love, and mysteries in a Brooklyn that makes you want to pack your bags and visit at the first opportunity. Ted Danson plays magazine publisher George Christopher, a baby-boomer success story who wants to stay relevant, connected, and alive, and attempts to do so via his blossoming friendship with Jonathan.
