“Bar Karma” on Current TV

Current TV, Al Gore’s “new media” cable television experiment, is adding a scripted sci-fi series called “Bar Karma.” Which would seem like an odd addition to a network primarily concerned with current affairs. It is, however, the network’s boldest experiment to date. Not necessarily its most successful, but we’ll give it points for the boldness.

Public radio über-nerd/hunk Ira Glass grew a beard

His milieu being radio and all, the host of “This American Life” may well have been sporting face fur for a while now–but Current TV just added this video to its website last week.

When I stand back and look at the elements at play here, I’m kind of shocked at how much cuter I’m finding Ira Glass with shades of Tevye from Fiddler on the Roof at the forefront. But there you have it. I am firmly on the “yay” side of this look. What say you, Alibi readers—thumbs up or down on the beard?
