    What do I think about this season 🤔? I think it's so good that I probably won't see a second season. For "whatever" reason 🙄🤷🏾‍♀️🙄

    From a political standpoint this is HBO's worst I think. I would definitely put way behind Problem Areas with Wyatt, probably John Olly (even though he's went off the rails a bit, and miles behind Bill. Kind of ultra in a bad way.

    I want to say this is the "Playboy After Dark" of our generation, but it feels too fresh. This is a talk show with a firm footing in the classic legacy of great talk shows, but with a freshness that feels like the future. The format is genius. The host is genius. The vibe makes you feel like you're at a party just chilling listening to great conversation. Sam Jay has broken through television and entered into the world of performance art. This is groundbreaking. It's been a long time since I've actually looked forward to episodes of a talk show. It's thought provoking. It's fun. It's irreverent to both conservative and woke culture. It's representation of marginalized cultures in their most authentic forms. It's casual. It's brilliant social commentary. It's without a doubt worth watching.
