Long time lurker, new poster here. I've been following since 2003 and RT has the best message board community I've yet to come across. I finally overcame the forum bugs and was able to create an account. I almost certainly won't make it but I figured it was finally time to give it a try. Anyway, I have been shacked up at a hotel in Seoul for over a month with only a laptop and some shitty wifi, i.e. torrents are incredibly slow. So...

I finally caved in and paid cash money for the third season of Review. I thought it was an excellent conclusion to the series. It's sad to see the show come to an end this early on. Daly is a real talent. His podcast is also solid. Review was criminally underrated. I wish it had a stronger viewership. This show was one of the best things to happen to CC in a long time. It doesn't look like Nathan for You is coming back either...

Any fans? Thoughts on Review and Daly in general?

Daily's alright, but my fix is fixated on Full Frontal, Last Week Tonight, and currently Jim Jeffries. There're only so many of these shows I can take before peeling back the host curtain and seeing them as the Writers' Room Critiques that they are. Could never get into Review, but the cut of its jib is apparent.

We should be so lucky.
But seriously, you can find pretty much anything in the forum's history by Googling this:

So in the last couple of years, Comedy Central has lost Jon Stewart/Stephen Colbert, Key & Peele, Nathan Fielder, Nick Kroll and now Review.

At least they still have Tosh :[

I like Last Week Tonight but honestly I've fallen behind for the past 8 months because of work. Is Jim Jeffries really that good? I've had a friend recommend Legit but he is hardly knowledgeable. Is the series specifically worth going out on a limb for, or would you recommend something else? I agree that there is just too much entertainment in general now. It's hard to invest yourself into something.

I can only get the forums to work using the forum-origin.rottentomatoes.com. I imagine this was sarcasm because it's very difficult, considering. Hahahah enjoying the gif though

Are Key & Peel and Nick Kroll worth it as well? I am familiar with all three outside of their CC shows but have never watched.
Are you being faceious about Tosh? I cannot fathom you being a fan of Tosh so I have to ask. Long time lurker here.
Sorry about multiple replies in this thread to all. Limited resources at the moment

As per sketch comedy, they can be hit and miss, but the hits are pretty tremendous and misses are still usually amusing. Neither of them are as cerebral as Daly or Fielder, but Kroll's show in particular made me think of what SCTV would have been like in a world with reality TV.

mooseAre you being faceious about Tosh?

Yes. Hence the chagrin emoji.

I don't imagine that he'll last, but his slouch-couch swagger, and his need to push irony to the breaking point, set him apart from the Keshers and Mahers, for the time being. He's good at playing the foreigner who wants to understand Americans-who-don't-understand-themselves.

What I wanna know is - WHERE THE HELL IS JESSICA WILLIAMS???

This forum used to have a search engine. Long ago, in the before-before times. It's a sore spot amongst us here.
