Fishing With John, just do it.

This TV series is really fun to watch. It's so crazy and weird. I mean, John Lurie taking Matt Dillon and Jim Jarmusch fishing? While knowing nothing about fishing? The TWO episodes that feature Dennis Hopper are hilarious. Hopper keeps calling him "Johnny" and Lurie makes a smurk each time he says it, "Mr. Hopper, why do you keep calling me that?" And him ice fishing with Willem Dafoe in -20 degree weather where they are freezing to death and starving is quite classic. I highly recommend this if you're up for offbeat humor, and for fans of a Jarmusch style atmosphere.
