Brockmire begins climb back in 2nd season


This dark day reminds of the Frank Sinatra line about "Only the Lonely," his album of impossibly sad songs: "It should come with a shot of whiskey and a .38."


In season one, Brockmire began his halting climb back by taking an announcing job with the Morristown Frackers.


And he was not alone: Comedy writer Joel Church-Cooper saw the character and, knowing Azaria's chops as an actor, agreed that there was something deeper in Brockmire.


Cooper, like Azaria, is a lifelong baseball fan, and he thought baseball was the perfect background to his idea of Brockmire as this deeply broken man -- if you have seen the show, you know, the key word there is DEEPLY broken -- who would try in his own halting way to find his way back.


My favorite character on the show is Charles, a young tech nerd played by Tyrel Jackson Williams.


"You really shouldn't like Jim Brockmire," says IFC president Jennifer Caserta, who has announced the show has been renewed already for seasons three and four.
