FISHING WITH JOHN was one of the weirdest talk shows, fishing shows, reality tv shows or shows of any other kind. The series followed composer John Lurie as he invited celebrity guests Jim Jarmusch, Tom Waits, Matt Dillon, Willem Dafoe and Dennis Hopper to exotic locales, where they went fishing. Badly.
That's it. That's the whole series. FISHING WITH JOHN was either a merciless satire of television, a serious meditation on the smaller moments in life, or the mellow predecessor of manic Adult Swim absurdism (or all three).
But was it... CANCELED TOO SOON? Film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold analyze a series that practically refuses to be analyzed in the latest episode of the podcast.
