In this five part instructional etiquette series, an off-the-wall host offers a stream-of-consciousness dive into her everyday frustrations and surreal flights of fancy. “The Ember Knight Show,” created by Ember Knight, Bobby McCoy, and Mikey Santos — a medley of in-studio sequences, guerrilla filmmaking, and animation — is endlessly inventive and brimming with color, style and wit. Knight is the star of the show, and she’s constructed a lively persona that oscillates between kids TV host and bitter artist, full of half-truths and contradictions. In the first episode, she extols the importance of listening to others as she establishes that she’s not been the best listener in her own life. Episode two finds her in the lobotomy chair hoping to remove a single lie from her brain without removing her self-proclamations that she’s the King of L.A., or that she’s invented her own form of currency. With enough layered connective tissue throughout, the series accumulates unexpected resonances as it goes along with its decidedly adult themes of resentment, anger, and jealousy. But submerging her frustrations in a soup of handmade sets, toys, and musical breakdowns, it remains a lighthearted, spunky series about getting along in a big ole messy world. -KA.
