AKR: Is Buried Alive a reference to anything? It made me think of the Ryan Reynolds movie.
AA: Well, first of all, that movie’s called Buried, so that might say something about its success.
AKR: Yeah, fair enough.
AA: It came from an idea to make the poster look like these old-timey magician posters. Then I just thought about calling it Buried Alive because that sounds like a magician show title. And it also fits the themes of the show — fear of adulthood and how your life changes after you have kids and get married.
