Really enjoying this! Animated Steph is hysterical, and they can put him in situations they couldn't before. (Finding and then having to fire 50 foot ducks because the show was going in a different direction?)
Port-a-Putty is tough. Will anyone get through it without ending up in the water (except for a hole-in-one)? And then no backdrop on the hole. Good luck. (Though last week's zip line on Polecano made me cringe.) The weiner jokes are kinda one-and-done for me. I could live with seeing the dancers a couple more times. It's gonna be a long summer.
I felt they could've made Greg Louganis's and Steven Guttenberg's segment stronger. I was thinking they'd score their falls going into the water. And Guttenberg was in Cocoon, so aliens in pods somehow? Wilfred Brimley is still alive, fwiw, though he's in his 80's, and IMDb shows he hasn't worked in a couple years. Bottom line: They get these great guest stars, and I'd like to see the show use them better.
And just found this article that explains many of the changes, the thinking behind them, and some behind-the-scenes happenings.
