FtL 301 – The Best of Times

Nic Cage and Crispin Glover star in an 80s teen variety sketch… thing? We think?

Failure to Launch is BACK with one of the most divisive, confused, dare we say Baffling™ pilots we’ve seen Crispin Glover try on jeans during.

Nicolas Cage, Crispin Glover and a slew of other teenagers bring us many, many, MANY vignettes of life as a 1980s All-American teen; a life that’s often musical and only occasionally involves serious property damage and/or existential despair.

Also, Jackie Mason’s there, playing a character with the last name ‘O’Reilly’. We’d tell you more but, honestly, we’re still not totally sure what this thing was.

Crispin Glover definitely tries on jeans though. That happened. We think.
