Revolutionizing the retail experience. Upending the entire communication paradigm that governs the planet. Bringing information accessibility to new corners of the earth. Forcing the evolution of the entertainment and journalism industries. Between Two Ferns.

2fernsThere are just a small sampling of the ways in which the fundament of human institutions have been altered by the existence of the internet, and were there to be a vote held to determine the most important of them, my vote would be for Between Two Ferns.

Perhaps the greatest web series ever, Zach Galafianakis’ talk show has treated us to some of the most sublime interviews ever conducted over the last five years, and it’s always my pleasure to let you know that a new one is available. This time Zach has put together a multi-part Oscar special (though who knows if the “Part 1″ is a joke, or an actual promise) with Oscar nominees including Christoph Waltz, Anne Hatheway, Jennifer Lawrence, Naomi Watts, and Amy Adams.

Each guest’s segment delivers at least one amazing moment, with Amy Adam’s interview providing perhaps the best off-the-cuff joke Galafianakis has yet delivered in the series. And though she doesn’t top Charlize Theron’s amazing turning of the tables, Jennifer Lawrence does a nice job with the aggro approach.

Enjoy.
