It's worth the binge!
It may sound strange, but Nathan For You is worth investing time in. Season one episodes like "The Claw of Shame" simply have to be seen for their absurdity, while the recent stunts, like season three's finale "The Hero," which saw Nathan assume the identity of another man and walk a tightrope for charity, have a surprising poignancy to them. We named it one of TV's best shows last year, and there's really no telling where the show could go when it returns for season four later this year.
Also, it's just really, really funny.
Along with Adult Swim's The Eric Andre Show, TruTV's Billy on the Street, and Late Night writer Conner O'Malley's sublimely out-there online videos, Nathan for You is part of a new wave of vaguely punk-ish, always hilarious anti-comedy. But Fielder's vision is the most biting and the most vulnerable. It's uncompromising. It's ridiculous. And, like investing in any small business, it's worth getting in early.
