Last Week Tonight: SLAPP Suits

After spending two years engaged in a legal battle with a coal executive who was less-than-enthused with a giant squirrel telling him to “eat shit”, John Oliver finally shares the details of what happened, explains SLAPP lawsuits, and ends the segment in a way that ensured that I’d have to post it.

I had no choice, people.

Nearly Coherent: Things You Shouldn’t Do in a Hospital

There’s a new episode of Nearly Coherent!

eD! and Jeff talk about Joker.

And spoil every last thing in it.

Don’t say we didn’t warn you and tweet at us angrily later.

As I mention in the episode, I love all sorts of movies — I’m the person you’ll find at a showing of Gone with the Wind and the sort of weirdo who pre-ordered Fast and Furious Presents: Hobbs and Shaw about 12 seconds after I got out of the theater. I’m not going to dismiss a movie outright for just about any reason.

That said, Joker was terrible and I want the time I spent on it back, dammit.

Batman 1966's Joker, clapping.

Microsoft the Musical

The bit in the beginning where they consider Bill Gates less of a person and more of an idea is kinda weird, but the part where they make fun of Windows Phone really makes up for it.

Nearly Coherent: Hot and Humble

There’s a new episode of Nearly Coherent!

eD!, Jeff, Dave, and Val talk about wedding venues, baby naming, eD! being a terrible monster, and the spelling of “cookies”.

No, seriously, that is how you spell it, right?

Honestly, after this episode, there was a good 10 minute conversation between us wondering if we’ve been spelling “cookies” wrong our entire lives. It was weird.

The Next Nostalgic Cash-Grab: The TurboGrafx-16 Mini

Konami will be releasing a mini version of the TurboGrafx-16 later this year:

Konami has announced the latest in the slew of shrunk-down retro consoles, the TurboGrafx-16 Mini. Six games have been announced so far for the system, which will be released in Japan as the PC Engine Mini and in Europe as the PC Engine Core Grafx. It’ll have two USB ports for controllers and support a five-way multiplayer adapter.

I’d like to tell you that I won’t buy this, but if it ends up including any of the Bonk games, I’d just be lying.

Well Fork.

While I’m glad The Good Place will be ending on its own terms, I’m bummed that it’s ending — it’s the best show on TV, and we’ll all be worse off when it’s over.

Also, if you’re not watching it, you need to get on that shirt right forking now.

…that will make more sense when you watch the show, I swear.

I wasn’t really able to watch the WWDC keynote live, so I didn’t make jokes on Twitter as I usually do, but I think this episode makes up for it!
