Fri 12/2: Mr. Neighbor's House (Netflix)
For the millions of men who grew up watching Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood, Mr. Rogers was an aspirational character, a man of warm-hearted integrity. Despite that, one can’t help but wonder if that cheery Rogers ever had a bad day, and what might have ended up on the cutting room floor. That is exactly the premise for this inane but hilarious comedic farce from the minds of Jason Mantzoukas (The League), Rob Cordry (Ballers), and Brian Huskey (Veep), who plays a children’s show host on the brink of a breakdown. The series furthers the experiment by using a number of mixed-medium elements, puppets, and stop-motion to fill out the cast.
