Here is your weekly reminder that the CBS series Braindead — which you can also watch on Amazon Prime — the most enjoyable series of the summer (not including Netflix’s Stranger Things). Yes, it’s a political satire. Yes, it’s about alien bugs who get inside the brains of Congressmen. But it’s also unbelievably fun.
To wit: In this week’s episode, Mary Elizabeth Winstead’s character has sex with Michael Moore in a shot-for-shot remake of a sequence in Eyes Wide Shut. It’s a fantasy/nightmare sequence as imagined by the boyfriend of Winstead’s character, and Michael Moore was apparently a very good sport about it. Winstead, however, did not particularly enjoy filming the scene, not because of Michael Moore, but because of all the sweat and spit that accompanies a sex scene.
Here is that scene, although you guys would be better served watching it in the context of the entire series which, again, you can watch on Amazon Prime. Right now. There are still four episodes remaining this season, so it’s a good time to catch up.
Here’s Winstead on James Corden’s talk show talking about the scene.
Here’s another link to the series on Amazon, in case you missed it above.
