| It's John Oliver, of course it's awesome!
First of all, I LOVE JOHN OLIVER. My heart has been so many times taken by different UK comedians that I have lost count. But yes, John Oliver, very nice! And that's why I picked up this show to watch and I can say that I wasn't disappointed, the opposite of that.

It's an easy formula: First pick a news topic, usually involving stupid people like US politicians, then make fun of him, and than… well that's it. Basic formula which works so damn well, at least for me.

But I have to say that sometimes I just don't like the jokes or the way Oliver tells them or acts them. He sometimes gets so charged about some things that I'm almost yelling him through the TV to calm the f**k down. And there sure is some childish jokes and sketches which irritate me, that a bit lowers my rating. But hey, that's Oliver we are talking about so what can I truly expect.

Short story even shorter: The show is AMAZING, even more amazing than Spiderman (which by the way I don't like for some reason, maybe because he's wearing a childish costume with a spider drawn on it?, Hell, I got sidetracked again). Sure the irritating and/or childish jokes and sketches make it a bit worse but still: Bloody (Almost) Perfect. Verdict

3^2/5+5, very highly recommend this show, one of the best Comedy News/Talk-Shows out there, second just after The Colbert Report. STEEEEVEN! STEEVEN! STEEVEN! Don't get it? That's okay, just go and watch The Colbert Report because it's truly the greatest.
