Funny. Dramatic. Surprising. True. Boundary-pushing and adventurous, radio personality Ira Glass examines the details of life that go unnoticed — and transforms them into something humorous or poignant, enlightening or bizarre. From the tale of a man who so cherished his pet bull that he had him cloned, to the account of a 12-year old who doesn't believe in love, these are true stories which remind us that the remarkable lives in the everyday. You don't want to miss one episode of what the New York Post calls "unlike anything else you'll find on TV anymore — or maybe ever."

    By Cerecman
    Wow what a great series! The TV version is every bit as brilliant as the weekly radio show. It's a mystery to me why SHOWTIME opted not to continue the show.
  • WOW

  • Too good for TV

    By Michae1
    As a fan of the radio show I thought a TV version would be horrible. I was wrong. This show is funny & insightful in a way that only TAL can be. It was so good, in fact, that it only lasted one season. I keep this season on my Apple TV and show it to friends from time to time. They are always impressed. Buy it, watch it and hope that it finds another home on another network.
  • TV Translations

    By Capt. Spastic
    Rarely when one incarnation of format entertainment makes the leap from one type to another, does it ever work. Which was my concern when I first hear about the effort to turn one of radio's best shows into a TV show. I am very happy to say that after having seen 2 seasons of This American Life, those fears have been alleviated. Ira Glass and crew have done an absolutely marvelous job of translating one of radios most interesting programs into one of Showtime's most interesting show currently being produced. Please keep them coming Showtime. This is a great show, with touching, endearing, thought provoking stories.
  • Fantastic
