After a disappointing start the first two weeks, “Michael and Michael Have Issues” finally hit its stride last night.  The skit above, in which Michael Ian Black goes shopping for sweatpants after a bad break-up, damn near killed me.

The meta “behind the scenes” half of the show is coming along, too, as the Michaels are growing into their vain, petty alter egos.  I still don’t like it as much as the skits, but that’s because the “Curb Your Enthusiasm”/”Arrested Development” style of humor-through-awkwardness is hit and miss with me.

Whoa, whoa!  Put down your pitchforks!  I didn’t say anything bad about “Arrested Development”!  I was merely talking generally about a style of humor!  Hey, that’s real fire on your torch!  IT BURNS!  I take it back!  I’m sorry!  Michael Cera is a genius!
