Television series Rod Lott
Four years ago, cable remade the perfectly fine ’70s sci-fi thriller The Andromeda Strain,
based upon Michael Crichton’s thriller, but needlessly doubled the
running time, thereby cutting its effectiveness in half.
From A to Zzzz, comedian Mike Birbiglia’s account of his noctural disorder is a sleeper hit.

Early in Sleepwalk with Me,
protagonist Matt Pandamiglio (comedian Mike Birbiglia, more or less
playing himself) addresses via narration the feelings his character
holds for his live-in girlfriend, Abby (Lauren Ambrose, Wanderlust)
with the lines, “I think falling in love for the first time is such a
transcendent feeling. It's like pizza-flavored ice cream: Your brain
can't even process that level of joy.”
