We’ve had a DVD of the first season of the Larry Sanders Show sitting around the house for a few months. Though Netflix is usually a good deal, this is a $20 rental now, right?
Helaine and I just watched the first four episodes. They still stand up.
There’s a special feature, an interview of Garry Shandling conducted by Tom Shales, on the disk. Garry/Larry finally confirms “Artie” was based on Freddy de Cordova. I hold a special affinity for Artie and wrote about him a few years ago.
Indulge me. Reread it.
