Bored to Death Review: "The Case of The Lonely White Dove"

at . Comments

In this week's episode of Bored to Death, it is amazing to see the transformation of Jonathan. He now looks more-so-than-ever as a Private Eye that should be on some other show like Mad Men. I kinda wish he would be smoking his wacky tobacco out of a Sherlock Homes pipe instead of his one hitter.

Jonathan helps a Russian ex-con, Dimitri, find the woman of his dreams - who only goes by the name of "The Lonely White Dove." Dimitri looks like he belongs in Goodfellas. The Russian Restaurant also has the mafia vibe going on and one thing you learn from this week's episode is that the Russian's are a force to be reckoned with.

George is the comic relief this week. He is up to his crazy antics again in finding a way to boost his magazine sales. His shrink believe that is is best for him to go gay to get in tune with his feminine side. So he hires a beautiful black male escort (Yay! Conrad from Weeds!) to help him become bi.

Bored to Death still has the ability to surprise us and so far nothing is of the norm – which is a pleasant eye-opener for television shows these days. Now that you've heard our take, what's yours? Read our full recap to a rundown of this week's crazy episode!
