I might not have liked Joker, and I didn’t like Spider-Man 3 (just like any right-minded person), but I love this nonsense.
I love it so much.
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.
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.
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.
eD!, Jeff, and Dave talk about the new iPhones 11, Apple Watch Series 5, and all the other shenanigans from Apple’s event on Tuesday.
Find out how many shiny new things I’ll own by next week, it’ll shock and amaze you!
eD! and Dave discuss lunchtime mishaps, the Popeye’s chicken sandwich, and a follow-up to one of the first Dave’s News Corners he ever made us suffer through.
I genuinely enjoyed this episode, and I hope you do, too, but if not, that’s really on you, y’know?
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.
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.
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.
eD!, Jeff, and Dave talk about Dave’s wedding venue hunting, eD!’s latest instance of being a jerk to a child, and all the WWDC updates!
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!
