LSSC: Season Six Episode Talk

Recommended Posts

I saw it! I liked that number, too. So did Mary Trump, apparently-saw a mention of her praising it on the show's Twitter account :D.

Damnit, I thought I was done getting emotional today. That opening montage summed up my feelings so perfectly. 

"Even though it was abnormal, at least we understood why it was abnormal." Well put. Wonderful monologue tonight. It's nice to have some lighthearted stuff to laugh about.

I sent links to the video to friends  it was amazing. I miss Broadway so much and that performance helped that too.

It was nice to see Stephen happy about the news. He himself has said Trump has made him so angry

@Annber03, I'll see your library potato story and raise with a dinosaur butthole.  😁

Stephen's take on that story was hysterical :D. The look on his face after he read that bit detailing the shape of the hole. "I'm upset to have read that aloud." The Gweynth Paltrow line afterward was the perfect topper. 

I also agree with his suggestion that the QAnon people should just go get into nerd culture instead. That Tolkein rant was fun.

I think Priyanka Chopra is a mediocre actress at best, but I covet her hair. That said, what the HELL did she do to her lips? Every time she laughed or smiled, it looked like her upper lip was touching the tip of her nose!

I 😂😂🤣🤣😂😂😂 at Stephen’s slo-mo repeating of “Preseeeedent Biiiiiiden” something something comparing it to licking frosting off of a spoon.😂😂😂😂😂 

Still waiting for Jon Stewart to appear SOON!

I liked when Chopra pointed out that India had had women in positions of power already, so when she saw Harris being inaugurated, her reaction was more along the lines of, "Way to finally catch up, America!" :p.

I was expecting her to actually say Indira Gandhi! (No relation to Mahatma Gandhi).

A bit late in Replying, but ...

Considering the hatchet job that PJ did on poor Faramir, maybe it's a Good Thing that he left Glorfy out of the films completely. NEVER diss a Lord of Gondolin (Salgant excepted).

 

And will someone PLEASE explain the difference to Stephen between the pronunciation of "Gollum" (soft "o" like "on") and a "Golem" (long "o" like Goat) which Wikipedia describes as "In Jewish folklore, a golem (/ˈɡoʊləm/ GOH-ləm; Hebrew: גולם‎) is an animated anthropomorphic being that is created entirely from inanimate matter". The films' adherence to Tolkien's vision may have been flawed in places (!) but their adherance to his languages' pronunciation was pretty accurate. Otherwise, we love you, Stephen!

Well, Gollum is an animated anthropomorphic being. He'd fit the definition of "golem" if only they'd used Claymation instead. Though to be fair, the folklore pre-dates the advent of motion capture CGI technology so it probably wasn't taken into consideration.

I'm confused. When was the bit with Biden filmed? 

A week after he was declared the new president. Stephen said in his opening statement that he’d been president for 9 days. So this is from mid-November.

The synopsis on my dvr stated this is a clip show: “The best of President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris.”

ETA: Oh, I see you what you mean! Based on the Christmas stockings in the background and Biden saying he’s losing his job soon, think the bit is from December 2016?

I loved that! Especially Stephen’s Scrooge impression. “You there, boy, what administration is this?” And the 2016 family meeting with Pops. “Gosh damned! I mean, darned!” “Look what you did! You made Pops say the D word!”

Obama has fantastic comedy chops—his Washington Correspondent Dinners were the best. But Joe’s no slouch! His dad routine meshes excellently with Stephen’s.

That was awesome to just have Stephen and John talking for two-thirds of the show!

Now if Jon Stewart could return and these two could riff again, that would be doubly awesome.

I loved the whole bit with the cat video that's going around :D. Especially at the end, when Stephen imagined using that cat filter for Trump's lawyer during the impeachment trial.

I also got a good laugh out of him quoting "The Joker".

I happened to catch Stephen's interview of Rebecca Breeds from the series "Clarice" last night. I doubt I'll be watching the series, but she was like a breath of [intelligent, talented] fresh air (unlike the dark series). Stephen seemed a bit smitten (as is probably anyone around her) when he called her something like "kiddo" once and was sure to credit "my wife" once, but maybe I read too much into it. 😉 
Anyway, her natural ability to do accents does not apparently extend to teaching them to SC. LOL

I liked the interview with her, too :). She seems cool. I'm planning on checking out the show, just 'cause it seems to fit in my general wheelhouse in terms of the types of shows I like to watch. I wish her success with this.

The passing of Chick Corea was announced in the media on Thursday; I did not hear if he was mentioned on the show, but Jon Batiste and the band played Corea’s “Spain” at the end of Stephen’s opening segment, and when he came back for the second segment.  It’s such a beautiful piece.

Kinda OT but with the exception of Trevor Noah and Jimmy Kimmel, all the late night hosts were off last week. Even Bill Maher didn’t have a live show last Friday. Was there something going on last week that I’m unaware of?

Not that' I'm aware of . Since last Monday was Presidents' Day, maybe that was part of the reason for the week off?

I'm glad/relieved/not really surprised that Jon was amused by the mispronunciation of "Soul" as "Sow" by the GG presenter.

I forgive him for using one of my favorite movies Braveheart as Cruz’s mouthpiece last night, despite Mel Gibson’s standing or lack of, and his fall from Grace in Hollywood and in the public’s eye due to his assholery and antisemitism notwithstanding.

The character with the mask at the end was Shredder from the 80's/90's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cartoon which is what the whole opening bit was based on. I still have that opening theme from the cartoon stuck in my head today thanks to that opening last night...😆
