Where else would you interview John Malkovich?
This is the first in the inaugural series of “Bathing With Bierko,” wherein Host Chris Bierko gets intimatem, fresh and clean with his guests.
It’s cute. Malkovich gets his scalp massaged and finds how words can be disconnected from their meaning if repeated enough. I once lost the connection to the word “pretty” by doing the same thing. Try it. Portugal. Flamingo. Pretty. Or your own word.
But Bathing With Bierko is not as funny as “Between 2 Ferns.” And it would be funnier if they ditched the cheesy bubble transitions and sounds. A little too low brow.

How could that be my favourite talk show if I haven’t seen it before? Arghh – too mainstream. Malkovich deserves better.
