We are longtime, early fans of Jerry Seinfeld’s Crackle Web series Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee. And so, it was with bittersweet disappointment that we greeted the recent half-season relaunch featuring Louis CK.
Seinfeld trolley-ed down to an NYC dock with the incomparable everyman comic and took a ride in CK’s Jaws-like boat. It’s not that the episode was terrible or anything; it was just surprisingly flat – like the Manhattan surrounding waters on filming day – and surprisingly light in terms of laugh-out-loud moments.
Entertainment Tonight got the tipped exclusive look at the trailer for the January 30 noon episode (above) and things are looking up. Especially if there are more zingers like the observation Tina Fey makes about the Upper West Side. (Fair warning: If you live on the Upper West Side, you may not be as amused as we were.)
P.S. If you think we’re wrong about the CK episode, please chime in below. We’re going to watch it again in a little bit, just to see if we somehow missed perhaps a framing, sly vibe.
