    Disappointed with the season so far. Too many fringe main topics. The quick recap was as good as always though. Last night I had to turn it off, because I was exhausted and frankly if the topic was on the Death penalty it may have been more interesting. To dig into just lethal injection was a bit too much, and when they started describing the effects of the various injections, I just didn't want to go to bed and have nightmares of feeling paralyzed from an injection while I am being told how painful it is and I can't communicate. Not saying it is not a discussion that should take place. Just saying I would like to see Oliver get out of the weeds a bit more this year. We get one topic a week. I want something presented from his point of view that has a bigger impact on the world.

    There are huge topics that he could do a great job on...

    Ukraine
    Venezuela
    Iran
    Yemen
    etc.

    Income Inequality
    packing the courts
    separation of powers
    electoral congress
    white supremacy
    immigration
    government ethics and conflicts
    etc.

    I want his take on these things.

    I still love the show but it does seem like he's avoiding those types of topics/Trump on purpose. His thing about "we have the biggest show as a lead in for three more weeks, and we're talking about this, yep!" or whatever seemed to confirm that. He wants to lean away from those things because they're so pervasive. Which I totally get/respect. It's gotta be annoying to put so much focus on Trump and how he affects life every minute of every day.

    But dammit, that shit matters and I want some deep dives on it.

    You hate to be objectively critical?

    Season has been bad. Not only have the stories been fringe and not current, but they have been really sloppy and not very cohesive. Doesn't ever feel like there is a main point that he is trying to prove with the right amount of objective content to back it up. I wonder if he lost some writers over the past year.

    It was better. I did love the Hunter stuff. I thought the impeachment stuff was still very surface and I feel like he used to tell a better holistic story in the short time he has to present a topic.

    It's kind of cool to see a comedian with no laughter. Like, you can tell when jokes are landing, as opposed to when you find yourself laughing because everyone else was.

    Yes, definitely interesting, but laughing is such a social thing. It’s hard to laugh when you expect one and it is not there.
