And Back Again
Been an interesting couple of weeks, with a show in Saskatoon and a family trip to Vancouver to see my brother. But at long last, I find myself sitting comfortably in my office chair doing the work.
At least until I leave next week for New York Comic Con.
But in the meantime, I’ve been using the travel time to catch up on some shows and figured I should share my thoughts with you kind folks.
Daily Show with Trevor Noah
I was nervous going into the first episode, as you might call me a Jon Stewart superfan. But after sitting through his opening and interview, I think this Trevor kid is going to do just fine. I laughed, I enjoyed his showbox method delivery and he’s only going to get better with time.
Comparing him with Stewart isn’t fair, as 17 years is a long time to hone your skill. That said, if you compare Noah to first year Stewart, I think we’re in pretty good hands.
I’ll share my thoughts again, after a few weeks in.
The Bastard Executioner
I want to love this show, but 3 episodes in, and I’m not sure what to make of it yet. Sutter usually has a slow burn though, so I’m willing to give it a full season before I make a final call.
The most poorly written and plotted show on television, and fuck me, but I can’t stop watching it.
Fear the Walking Dead
5 episodes in, and it seems to be following its daddy’s formula, of a series of middling episodes concluding with a great, action packed one. We’ll see if this Sunday’s season finale delivers.
Enjoy the day, folks, I’ll be back to my regularly scheduled blogging this week.
