Hello, I have been lurking for quite some time but finally want to make a post. This will contain spoilers for Cohen’s new show.
I have been a huge fan of Cohen for a long time, even enjoying his less popular movies like “The Dictator” and “Brothers Grimsby”… Yes I even liked that one.
So, I was thrilled to hear about this new show and see him tackle some of the bastards I so despise from the current administration and related individuals. I just watched the premiere of this show and thought it was pretty good.
The segment with Bernie was amusing. I started cracking up when Sacha tried to explain with a graph how you can put the 99% into the 1% :D:D I’m surprised how long Bernie talked with him though.
The Republican couple… I have to be honest. I equate Republicans with evil, but I actually liked these two. I just did. They both seemed like pretty fair people, although I think a bit more revulsion would have been appropriate at some of the things Cohen said.
The art lady from Laguna Beach, what the hell? There were some things she said that were interesting, but she clearly is out of touch with normal people, to be okay with taking something from the hands of a guy that just said he makes paintings out of shit. And giving him pube clippings like that haha.
I wish the gun segment would have been surprising, but it wasn’t.
Anybody who watched it, what did you think? I think Sacha Baron Cohen did a great job and I look forward to more!
