Watched 2 episodes of Criminal

It's okay. Nothing special. Line of Duty is miles better tbh.

Burr's was funnier than Chappelle's though. I very much prefer his style.

This Burr special was way funnier for me than Chapelle's latest one. This was sort of what Chapelle was going for.

His last one and most if his other ones were better. Nothing to do with controversy, he has the tact and the delivery on point, but just some of it wasn't lough out loud great. Loved the LGBTQ car analogy.

Not his strongest special.
wondering what your top non English speaking comedians are now. Don't think I follow any Spanish speaking comedians, most argentine ones I know of are trash

My favorite is Emilio Lovera, legend in comedy in Venezuela, but probably not so accessible for other countries.

A hit in various countries I always remember is Andres Lopez from Colombia. Blew up like 10 years ago and everyone I know saw his stuff, so you probably have as well. If not, check out his special "la pelota de letras", strongly recommend it and it is not country-exclusive in the topic.

I posted my review in a different thread:

@CBarca wrote:While we're on the subject of stand up comedy, anyone find Bill Burr's recent special a bit of a let down?

I enjoyed both his and Chappelle's recent stand up specials, but both were way too obvious at times, in their criticism of outrage culture. It was like low hanging fruit that I expect Dave and Bill to try and take on in more inventive ways.

To the credit of both of them (particularly Burr), they did have some clever bits. I'm not saying the whole set was cheap from both of them, or I'd be here talking both of those specials down as beneath their comedy. They did have a decent amount of clever bits, but in between there was a lot of low hanging fruit they hit that just wasn't up to par with their usual stuff.

The other thing about Burr is that he's gone, IMO, a little too hard at times on the "angry, yelling" thing he does. Listen to him on his podcast and that shows up here and there, but most of his takes are delivered without the constant yelling. He takes it to another level in his recent Netflix stand up specials. Hell, look at his old specials and usually he's outraged about something but in a more thoughtful, less stereotypical/caricaturish way.

I guess I just am not a fan of the way Burr's delivery has evolved over the last two specials. Look at his most recent special and compare it to "I'm Sorry You Feel That Way" or "You People are all the Same" and it's way different.

I will say this though, his bit about his dad and his bit about his dog were both brilliant and not just as comedy, but as commentary about the complex nature of masculinity. Any guy knows exactly what he's talking about, and the way he put it is nothing short of amazing.

For me Bill Burr is still at the top of comedy right now. Like I said though, I find his delivery declining and in his most recent special I found his bits to be inconsistent at times. Still enjoyed the watch though.


Overall it was a bit disappointing I think. I went back amd watched some of his old stuff and I immediately knew my gut reaction was correct. It's still good (it really picks up halfway through) but it's just not as good as past specials. It's too bad because you would think this current climate would result in a lot of good comedy

Speaking of stand ups. I've seen limited Carlin, but I consider him one of the GOATs. He's got some great material.

Just came across this clip, and I really became sad, because I feel like his voice would be so needed today

South Park season 15 onwards also has been uploaded.

Peaky Blinders season 5 is not as action-packed as one would have hoped but it's still a lot of fun. And by "a lot", I mean A LOT. After 4 seasons, they proved they can still pack a punch.

These Birmingham accents is English at its peak. Love it. One of the greatest TV series.

Peaky Blinders S5:

Finished watching S5 yesterday and tbh I thought it was one of the weakest yet. The political plot, the Michael plot, the suicidal thoughts dragged and I was disappointed they chose to punt on all of that for next season.

Season 5:
Tbh I thought the initial communist plot was as weak as the fascist plot. I agree with the rest though. I feel like there were too many repetitions and some motives were overused. Alfie lives though!

I recommend watching this @BC and other Peaky fans, best interview from the main actor and the producers I've seen. Explains a lot.

I pushed through Peaky Blinders and now im reaching season 4. While I enjoy seeing Churchill in any form of negative light, I do feel the series is kinda out of sorts and they kinda go with the flow rather than having something with a strong foundation?
