The show also features in-depth interviews with little-known people in the entertainment industry. Written by Boonose

So weird and good!
22 October 2013 | by durdenwasrightSee all my reviews

Just finally got to see Hot Package the other night and I was blown away. I don't love everything on Adult Swim but HP nailed the "Entertainment Tonight" look and totally ripped it a new one. It people they interview are amazing and bizarre. I saw one where they interview a porn director who's interested in opening a club for teens. Seriously. Does it get weirder than that?

Pat O Brian is probably the funniest part of the whole show. I know I recognize him from somewhere, his voice is super familiar, but he just looks like he doesn't want to be there. He's got that iconic announcers voice and it works perfectly with what they're trying to do.

Over all it was taking all the conventions we love to hate and making them hilarious. I'm definitely going to be waiting for new episodes!!
