Slings and Arrows

Slings and Arrows is such a good little comedy. When I first started watching it I was like "how did a satire about a Shakespearen company get a second season?" but then it turned out to be a Canadian show, and everything was explained. My favorite line is from the premier of the second season–the moment that I fell in love with this show for keeps–and is spoken in reference to a cremated theater director who's been replaced by his protégé, who can never quite get out from under the former's shadow: 

"Oliver Wells is dead! I poured him in the river and swans ate him."

And they did.
