In the Urologist's Office: A New Yorker Issue

While waiting for the arrival of a female urologist, George Christopher (played by Ted Danson) flips through an issue of The New Yorker in the latest episode of HBO’s Bored to Death, “Make it Quick, Fitzgerald.”

Danson’s character is a magazine editor (of the fictitious Edition), and thumbs through the issue of The New Yorker with apparent relish.

We see a fairly convincing New Yorker cover, featuring what appears to a cyclist rendered in strong shapes and bold colors. If this is an actual issue, my apologies, Emdashes readers. If it is, it isn’t a recent issue. Doctors never keep their piles of magazines up-to-date.
