Andy Samberg and Chris Parnell rap about a lazy Sunday consumed with buying Magnolia cupcakes and watching "The Chronicles of Narnia" at an Upper West Side cinema in "Lazy Sunday." The video was aired 17 December 2005.
While in his teens, Donny fathered a son, Todd, and raised him as a single parent up until Todd's eighteenth birthday. Now, after not seeing each other for years, Todd's world comes crashing down when Donny resurfaces just before Todd's wedding.
This is a funny pilot that was done for Fox but never aired since Fox rejected the concept. A search for the Awesometown video on Google or another search engine will lead you to 20 minutes of fun in this quirky show. It was apparently intended to be a 30 min show featuring the boys listed here. Their budding comic genius sparkles here in the perpetually perky and perfect every town, USA. The occasional introduction of reality into the sketches makes for great comic tension. It is certainly worth a look. You'll leave wanting more episodes and you will hum the Awesometown songs all day.
While the concepts are simple, the sketches are well done. Just Two Guys Having a Good Time and Castaways are memorable, but it's the theme that makes it great.
