Crazy Summer TV: Green Porno

It's unfathomable that it has taken so long for the Flaming Nose to report on the Sundance Channel's "Green Porno" series, since it is right up our alley in every regard. Actress Isabella Rossellini stars in a series of vignettes, demonstrating the incredibly varied reproductive lives of insects (Season One) and aquatic animals (Season Two). In addition to their unquestionable weirdness (always a plus for Nosers!), these shorts are packed with science trivia and feature the most colorful, imaginative costumes ever. If Barney the Dinosaur was designed by Jacques Cousteau and Jean-Paul Gaultier, the result would look something like this.

This season has included Isabella depicting the wacky underwater world of marine animal sex for whales, starfish, barnacles and anglerfish. If you don't subscribe to The Sundance Channel, you can visit the Green Porno website where it is possible to stream episodes from both seasons. The site is loads of fun, and includes games, widgets and a nifty app that tells you your "green porno" name. Mine happens to be Canary Deepwater. I like it!
