I was surprised by the first episode of Robbie Pickering's Gaslit (Starz) last night. Surprised because I hadn't realized the tone of this five-part limited series would be...well, vaguely farcical. I wouldn't call it a comedy series (except for the Gordon Liddy portions), but it certainly seems to highlight the dopey or absurdist aspects of this tale of Watergate cloak-and-dagger foolery.
