The Joel McHale Show with Joel McHale in the Media

http://www.indiewire.com/2018/01/joel-mchale-aziz-ansari-sexual-harassment-1201920336/

 

I am really looking forward to watching the show, because I am a huge Joel McHale fan and I had the pleasure of seeing him perform standup. However, I recently read some comments from him defending Aziz Ansari, and he lost a bit of his lustre to me. I think I agree with Samantha Bee, that ANY kind of bad behaviour is unacceptable.

This is becoming a little polarizing. We have men sexually harassing and assaulting women (or other men), then the media asks celebrities for their opinions and we then get reactions to those reactions too. I find myself now reacting to other people's reactions.

  And on a completely different note, an interview with Joel about a Netflix movie called A Futile and Stupid Gesture. It's a film about Doug Kenney, the tragic genius behind Caddyshack and Animal House. Kenney cowrote movies with Chevy Chase and Harold Ramis. Joel plays Chevy Chase. It does sound interesting, although I find with Will Forte, a little goes a long way. Forte actually plays Kenney.

Yay!

All 6 episodes all at once though? Hmm.

I wonder if it is a test to see if people watch right away. I plan on binge watching. I've missed The Soup quite a bit.

I guess how I was wondering it’ll work because I like when they make fun of recent clips of shows from the same week generally . So I guess the clips might feel a little outdated by the time they’re released.

Yeah, what's with the 6 at once? 

Everything will be outdated. This is a topical show, it needs to be weekly. I guess for me, it's not the kind of show I would binge.

This was my point I made when this was announced!  I'll watch it all right away because I love Joel, but the format is all wrong for this type of show.
