Here's the thing. I'm watching one of these shows on the Cooking Channel featuring food trucks. There's a Scottish expat making fish and chips; in a thick brogue he somewhat wearily explains his irritation with Americans who habitually order a side of tartar sauce: "tartar sauce is basically gherkins." That's this blog. I claim no particular insight, no revelation. If you enjoy the flavor, great, but this blog is basically gherkins.

Top Ten Side Projects by Members of The State

Sunday, September 14, 2014

2014-15 might be one of the biggest years for former members of The State with Ken Marino and Tom Lennon scoring leads in network sitcoms.  Leading to this - the ten best side projects by members of the State.  This is only a list of their own projects, ones where they had some level of prominence/creative input as to ones where they were relatively small hired hands on larger endeavors (so, Memento doesn't count, Night at the Museum does).

1. Stella (both stage and television series)
2. Children's Hospital
3. Burning Love
4. Reno 911 (series and film)
5. My Custom Van
6. Topics
7. Wet Hot American Summer
8. Wanderlust
9. Mike and Tom Eat Snacks
10. @michaelianblack
