It was a TV show before-- twenty episodes were made, about 5 minutes per episode. I discovered that they are available on iTunes (albeit dubbed, unfortunately) and I plan on purchasing them in the near future. A Town Called Panic cheered me up like few films have in recent memory.
John, we stopped at Blockbuster on the way back from the film to get a present for a party Ethan's going to tomorrow. I picked up American Splendor for two bucks, and Stranger Than Paradise and The Edukators for four dollars apiece. Paradise is one of the few Jarmusch films I haven't seen yet, so I particularly excited to find that one. Edukators I hadn't heard of beforehand, but the premise seemed interesting. Splendor I'd seen awhile ago, but I really enjoyed it. And it was two bucks.
