"The Colbert Report": Week of 9/15/14

Recommended Posts

Stephen done let slip his kilted slip with his FREEDOM chant. As someone who has been kilted himself from performing in a pipes and drums band, kilts come in real handy when you need to go to the urinal. Especially when you're totally freeballing. I'd imagine Stephen felt liberated.

 

As for David Cameron, it looks as if he done fucked up.

Isn't freeballing the expected mode when bekilted? I'd be horrified to learn I've been wrong about this.

 

Mindy's dress was exceptionally pretty.

I get a kick whenever anybody does a Proclaimers impression. That's a song with a great hook. (Did they have other hits abroad? Or did they 1-hit themselves out?)

It is. But some wuss out and put tighty whiteys on in order to feel a sense of security. I actually did this at the beginning, I was 24 at the time, until I decided to try and go commando just once. I never went back afterwards.

Great timing by Stephen as the CGI eagle flew into the window with the quote in its talons.

 

Good band for a trio of preteens. Let's hope they don't end up going the full Bieber if they become successful.

Why do you hate America, peeayebee? :)

 

I thought the kids were okay, which is weird because I'm soooo not a metalhead. Plus I like that they're African-American; metal tends to skew to the paler side of white.

The Twilight franchise grossed $5 billion? Our culture sucks! Awesome Prince Hawcat costume Stephen was wearing, but what happened to Tek Jansen? Was it not good enough, or was Stephen trying to go incognito at ComicCon?

For the record, this is Starhawk. And holy crap, I would not have recognized Stephen playing Prince Hawkcat. I know that Comic-Con is a big happening, but I gotta annoy people who attended about whether or not they saw Stephen's non-permit-having self in hero drag. And I was impressed by the cosplay going on with the others, particularly the new hip Ms. Marvel. Here's hoping Stephen bankrupts himself with another unknown property in time for New York Comic Con.

 

ETA: I gotta echo Victor the Crab . . . whatever happened to Tek Jansen of Alpha Squad 7? I liked the cartoons back in the day.

Thanks for the link to Starhawk. I was wondering why so many people were guessing that.

 

I assume this was the Comic-Con in San Diego. That was a while back. I'm surprised Stephen took so long to air this bit. I wonder if anyone recognized his voice. I think it's very distinct.

I loved how patient the ComiCon nerds were being listening to HawkCat go on and on. As if 'If I wait it out, I bet it gets awesome!' And then it didn't. Poor, patient people.

 

The highlight of the interview for me was Stephen's calling Mortenson 'Veeg.' Something so offhand about it was charming. (Ever since he did that movie with Fassbender, they've completely melded in my brain. I have a hard time telling them apart now. I'm sorry.)

I was hoping that Viggo would mention the other movie that he has coming out this fall, Jauna, which is a movie about a 19th-century Danish man who moves to Argentina with his family. (A perfect match for the man whose Danish father moved his family to Argentina!) And, it's in two languages, neither of which are English.

If I'd been an attendee, I would've assumed that it was just some guy who sounded a lot like Stephen mainly because who would expect him to be on the west coast? Now if he'd done that at New York Comic Con, I think he'd have been exposed. I go to NYCC every year and I've always half expected to bump into him or Jon on the show floor.

Actually Sean Hannity, you still need beatings for being a disdainful asshole. Or you need serious therapy to delve into that mindset of yours. Either way, you're not normal.

 

Awesome animated tribute to Terry Gilliam at the intro. Love everything Python.

That was one of the best and funniest TCR episodes I've ever seen. From the ridiculous and puntastic 'Boots on the Ground' first segment to the delicious smackdown of Sean Hannity to the frankly brilliant Gilliam animation, I LOVED it! Well done, show.

Love the Hannity smack down, pun intended. Love the whole boots bit. The Gillian-esque animation was fantastic and hilarious. 

 

I'm interested in hearing more about The Zero Theorem. I also love Christoph Waltz. Strange clip they chose.

Agreed. Stephen needs to take whoever wrote this episode with him to his next show.
