LastWeekTonight with Jhon oliver

edited September 11 in Miscellaneous
Who else watches this HBO show ?
Its so informative and shown in a way thats hilarious AF
Why isnt anything similar here in india ?

Comments

  • I think the closest any show came to it was "On air with AIB".
    These show require money for such shows, research and comedy writers. These three elements are difficult to combine together.
    Just my opinion.

    I watched his show on MLM.

    The week that wasn't with Cyrus Broacha, CNN-News18 is kind o' similar.
    I rebel; therefore I exist.
  • On air with AIB wasnt near this
  • On air with AIB wasnt near this

    Ikr... :joy: :joy:
    I do watch many times... But sometimes topics are too much abt US internal issues, so become uninteresting... But those related to int'l politics or neutral topics like GM crops are good.. :blush:
    Why none here in India... Because we dont have such well educated and aware citizens in our country. Quality of Bollywood movies and biased journos prove this :neutral:
    Too much political/ideology affection. Neutral and citizen-centric journalism is almost absent.
    And even those who are aware, dont have that charisma that John Oliver has :yum: He is simply amazing :grin:
    Have you seen his episode on Edward Snowden? Quite old now... But its awesome :joy:

  • I have seen almost all of his episodes in my free time
    He is bias3d too but he establishes it with facts
    And he is quite brave , would do things that no1 in US will dare to
  • In snowden episode he highlighted the whole privacy issue by focosing on dic pics
  • By focusing on dick pics
  • There was no need to mention this.
    I was talking more in context that John Oliver went all the way to Russia to meet him and the fact that most Americans dont even know who Snowden really is.

  • Sorry i didnt ment to offend

    One of my favourate was about Televengalist
    When thet formed Our Lady of Perpetual Exemption

    @Queen We don't take comedy lightly especially in fusion with politics, let alone the message or value within.
    If John oliver be hosting such shows in India, at least Z+ security would've been needed. That too increased or decreased as per the topic of show.
    And God knows, which of his 'Last week tonight' would be 'his' "last week of life".

    I havn't seen Snowden episode, but North Korea (nuclear issue) was amazingly hillarious.

    And If in India, can you imagine a headline: " धार्मिक भावना को ठेस पहुंचाने के आरोप में John Oliver गिरफ्तार " :lol: :joy:

  • Watched almost all the episodes so far.
    He's patently biased, but who cares as long as we can listen between the lines.

    Everyone sometimes has issues we know nothing about...
    He has apologized for those things in the past and definitely needs to change attitude...
    But if someone wants to become better then we must welcome that...
    Lets hope that results are positive... :smile:
