IFC’s nutso fake epic miniseries The Spoils of Babylon, from Will Ferrell and Funny or Die, has been rolling along for weeks now, picking up more and more bonkers sub-plots and characters with every turn. The whole thing has been delightful. Certifiably insane and off the wall, but still, very delightful. And if this preview clip from this Thursday’s episode is any indication, that shows no signs of slowing down. From IFC:
Cynthia Morehouse (Kristen Wiig) travels to the depths of the ocean to visit Devon’s (Tobey Maguire) underground lab. She becomes consumed with jealousy once she meets his attractive lab partner Dixie Melonworth (Jessica Alba) and the two end up trading more slaps than insults.
So, yeah. I don’t know if two attractive women slapping each other for like 80 straight seconds inside an underwater science laboratory while an actor who played Spider-man watches with glee while sipping scotch and wearing a preposterous curly wig is your “thing,” but if it is, there you go. Weirdo.
