You saw Alison's earlier post about former Daily Show correspondent/now host of his own HBO version John Oliver, and his takedown of Cover Oregon... and well, everything Oregon. So how's the rest of it? Actually, it's getting pretty mixed reviews. The Hollywood Reporter calls it "funny... but too fast and furious," while Salon referred to it as "caustic, mean and random." Meanwhile Time called it a "funny, confident start" and liked it when he says, "Fuck. You."
But now you can watch the entire first episode right here over lunch, and make your own judgement. Too mean? Too funny? Too FUCK. YOU.? Let me know what you think!
