The Other Two is a surprisingly smart and kind comedy about fame and the pop culture industrial complex, or at least it felt that way from the pilot. Now you can watch the whole first season for free on the Comedy Central site for the next two weeks.
That’s great news for all of us who watched the pilot and then couldn’t access the rest of the show. You know when you’re borrowing your parents’ login and for some reason the cable channel’s app won’t accept the password, and you can’t talk to customer service because (1) they’ll know you’re pirating your cable and (2) you’d have to route everything through your parents, who can barely use a computer and set up the cable login just for you anyway? Welp, not a problem, not for this particular show, not for the next two weeks.
The show (starring Drew Tarver and Heléne York, and featuring Molly Shannon and Ken Marino) follows two failed-artist siblings who’ve joined their little brother’s entourage after his YouTube songs went viral. What seems special about this show is that everyone in the main family seems to actually love each other and at least tries to have each other’s best interests at heart. Or at least that’s how it felt from the pilot and promo material that I could see without a working Comedy Central login.
