7/22 - I'm With Busey

So Adam gets set up on a date with this really pretty (and cool) girl by Busey who feeds him lines through an earpiece. I'm dying!

The part of the date in the restaurant was hilarious.

Watching that date was like watching a train wreck! I cringed but couldn't look away. The sad part was that when Adam relaxed and was himself, she really warmed up to him. Busey killed it for him.

I must say, this is the greatest show on television. This is the third episode I've seen, and I had NO idea the show would be this good before it came on. Absolutely hilarious. Is Busey REALLY that crazy? I mean, is any of it staged? Busey is one psychopathic mofo.

I am sure it is quite a mix of both. Gary is definitely eccentric, but there is no way he's not doing some acting. Anyone who thinks otherwise is naive, IMO, and probably hasn't been around too many television crews. Same phenomenon with The Osbournes.

"That's how the REALLY are!"

Right.

no, i meant with the date that Adam went along with. A normal person would've run for the hills if Gary Busey shows up at your house w/ a guitar and plays you a song.

Comedy Central. Not sure what night it's on normally. They replay the episodes throughtout the week. Hands down, this was the best episode of the short season they've shown so far.

Fortunately with Comedy Central you can be certain they will rerun any episodes you missed.

I'm pretty sure the show isn't scripted. I doubt Busey is always this hyper. Just from watching it a few times it seems like Busey decides what they're going to do for that day ahead of time and they just run with it. He seems to know he's a bit loopy and people are looking for a laugh so he probably just does whatever entertains himself and would scare the crap out of Adam.

It definitely doesn't look like Adam ever knows what he's in for, that's what makes it great whether Busey is being phoney or not doesn't matter a whole lot. I love the fact that Adam came up with this idea for a show years ago and actually ended up getting to do it without ever trying to get it done. Comedy Central approached him

I think the events themselves are scripted, but the interaction between Busey and Adam isn't. ****ing Busey was a humongous coke fiend and suffered multiple motorcycle crashes, so ****.

Anyone else still watching this series? It holds up surprisingly well, and there's bound to have been over 20 episodes by now. Pretty good stuff.

I think it was only 13 episodes. The season finale aired last week, I think. Not sure if there will be new ones or a new season.
