Other series structured like "High Maintenance"?

I really like High Maintenance. Things about it that make me happy: a mix of primarily comedic episodes with primarily serious ones, but with a balance more on the comedic side; the episodes are standalone, but with some recurring characters (kind of like the Discworld book series); many different people and situations. Do you know of other good TV/video/etc series that fit these criteria, ideally ones that I can watch online?

What horror film did I watch?

I just rewatched Cronenberg's The Fly. I saw it for the first time when I was a teenager, sometime in the early nineties. There are scenes in the movie that are etched into my memory, which I can vividly remember to this day. Except, having just rewatched the movie, those scenes aren't there. [more inside]

Books, movies, or other media about knights for my four-year-old?

My kiddo is super into pretending to be "a guard." His best friend pretends to be Queen Elsa, basically all the time, so they've decided that he's a guard who also has ice powers. His pretend guard self more accurately resembles a knight, and today when he was slaying dragons with a stick-sword, I thought, "This kid would enjoy learning about knights." But everything I know about is for older kids. What's out there for a four-year-old who loves stories and FACTS and doesn't like scary things? [more inside]

Are there any streaming webcams that are similar to NRK's Piip show?

Piip Show was a live stream of a bird feeder that looked like a coffee shop, and it was pretty much my favourite thing on the internet in 2014. But it doesn't seem to be back for 2015. Is there anything out there that will fill the Piip Show-sized hole in my heart? [more inside]

Looking for a law-nerd podcast

I'm looking to diversify the podcasts I listen to on my commute - right now it's mainly media-related and comedy shows, with only Dan Carlin and the Bugle talking about real-world concerns. My job involves reading a tracking a lot of ongoing litigation (but I am not a lawyer) and I've gotten to really enjoy looking at those issues, so I'd like to add something about interesting current or historical court cases to my rotation. But I've had a hard time finding something that goes as far into the weeds as I'd like -- Dahlia Lithwick's Amicus, for instance, covers topics I'm interested in but doesn't tell me much that I didn't already know, while the Legal Talk Network has lots of deep-dive podcasts but they're all aimed at practicing lawyers. Is there a program out there that hits that sweet spot?

Novels with a reality hidden in ours

A friend's high-school aged daughter is looking for a book for her English class. The story has to be set in the present day but where a different reality exists and is discovered by the main character. They are thinking 'science fantastique' I think. I suppose it's something like Harry Potter or The Lion, Witch, and the Wardrobe. Any suggestions?

Excellent mis-priced 99 cent albums in digital stores?

I love finding albums that digital music stores fail to price correctly. Some examples: Hildur Gudnadottir's Leyfdu ljosinu, James Blackshaw's Lost Prayers, a concert of In C, and the continuous mixes of Hernan Cattaneo's Balance 26). Do you know any great, bargain-basement priced esoteric albums for sale? Do you have a great system for finding them? Please reveal your secrets!

'80s/'90s cartoon movie where everyone's left-handed?

Anyone know of an (animated?) movie in the 1980s or 1990s where the child protagonist enters an alternate universe where everyone's left-handed? A friend remembers seeing it on a Saturday afternoon when he was young, and I thought I'd be able to find its title for him, but I'm not having much luck.
