Heres the thing, even in his 'Deep Dive' topics he often takes a shallow perspective of things from a singular point of view.

Thats not to be critical because its often necessary from the perspective of his show, at the end of the day though I like that his topics are of genuine concern and well researched and that he will say what he thinks and stand by it. I have a lot of respect for that.

I dont alway agree with him, but I think the bigger point to a lot of his topics is largely just to bring an under-evaluated issue to light and generate more thought and discussion of those topics.

Unfortunately though he does have to tread that fine line between opinion, news and comedy but overall I think he does it exceptionally well.

On this particular topic though...come on Bob...suing HBO? Sending a strongly-worded letter to the Presidents of AT&T and HBO?

Who the #### do you think you are? This is like that dumb kid in Elementary School who cant take a joke so he kicks up a huge tantrum and just gets labeled as 'that whiny kid' until he graduates from College.

Just watched the episode.

That might be one of the most cathartic laughs I've had in a very long, long time. With every horrible thing said I just imagined Bob Murray twitching away at home.

Thank you Mr. Oliver. I needed that.

that Allen Loughry story is wild. Wrote a book about corruption, then used 32k in tax money to buy himself a couch for the office. Now "The Gavel" is in prison.

also, "he masturbates to Schindler's List" in one of the best lines LWT has ever come up with lol.

I agree that it was a strong season, but what a way to end it. To go from Eat S*** Bob last episode to the touching and heartwarming Chiijohn. Just warmed the heart to end the season on such an uplifting note. Bravo!

Was really weird to hear John do an amazing job, but have no studio audience or even a stage. Jarring.

Its been a while since I laughed this hard, but the sign language interpreter translating 'Coronavirus Parties' in real time was hysterical.

Yeah, WTF was with those?

No thank you.

That was an amazing episode. Maybe I'm just used to things by now but I found this was so well paced and filled with funny jokes I didn't even notice the lack of studio audience.

Is that an option usually reserved for balding porn stars?
