    Funny thing is, recent over at A List of Things Thrown Five Minutes Ago, I was making the case that Mad About You is weirdly…almost kind of forgotten now, in terms of those really solid NBC comedy lineup of the time. It runs in the morning here in the US (on Hallmark? Lifetime? Something like that.) but seems to have just slipped away even though it’s still a really solid show, while everyone who was involved in the arguably not very good Will & Grace keeps getting work.

    To me, it makes sense that this movie would come off as a book since its adapted from a Thomas Pynchon novel. Loosely adapted, as I’ve read that Katherine Waterston’s role has been amplified in the movie and the prevalence of Joanna Newsom’s character is also a Paul Thomas Anderson invention. I would recommend reading the book because it’s approachable and generally enjoyable, but I wager it might not constitute that “second viewing” that most people will require. It might not supplant ‘The Big Lebowski’ as a new cultural institution but I can see it being a nice companion piece for a weekend viewing.
