Joe Pera Talks With You: heartrending TV that will take your breath away
Over the years, Adult Swim has carved out a niche as a place of angry anarchy. It’s a place where a sitcom’s opening credits will stretch and warp until it becomes an orgy of murder. Where James Van Der Beek will be taunted by a nightmarish doppelgänger. Where puppets slice other puppets up for ham.
But it’s also the home of Joe Pera Talks With You (now streaming on All4), which is the precise opposite of all that. Joe Pera Talks With You is quiet and still. It’s a hushed little tone poem about small-town America. It never loses sight of its own sincerity. It’s still odd, because it’s an Adult Swim show, but it’s about as good natured as anything you will ever watch. It’s terrific.
