Brockmire

Recommended Posts

If you are a fan of baseball, Hank Azaria or just irreverence I suggest checking this show out.  It's on IFC and follows a former MLB announcer (Azaria) as he comes back from rock bottom.

It has just started the second season.  In the first season Brockmire has taken a job with an independent league baseball team to try and work his way back.

It is highly irreverent, dirty, and definitely goes for the shock factor.  But hidden behind that are writers who are clearly knowledgable baseball fans, some interesting observations on modern society (Brockmire left the country after his incident and basically missed the rise of social media) and finally an interesting character study of a guy who just can't get out of his own way.

The 3rd season has been pretty good overall, but Brockmeyer has become a little boring. Would be surprised to see a season 4.

It's already been renewed for season 4.

Well that's good, because I like the show, but it just seems like it's going nowhere this year. It is a well written show!

Haven't picked it up yet for season 3.  I wonder how long you can string his story arc along and alter him as a character while keeping him irreverently hilarious.  At some point self defeatists just become unempathatic characters that lose us as an audience.

They've humanized him much more in season 3. It's been really well done.

Update: the fourth and final season is brilliant. It takes place in 2030 and is really funny speculative fiction that focuses on how dysfunctional and potentially doomed the MLB is. It’s a must watch.
