Hi! Do you remember blogs? Well, this used to be one. Now it just serves as an archive for my multiple Twitter accounts.
I don’t now why I didn’t expect much — maybe because Whoopi Goldberg hasn’t done anything good since… since… euh, Ghost? or because the show only lived for a season? — but Whoopi, that just arrived on French TV, is absolutely excellent.
Thing is, it’s excellent because it’s political, the first two episodes make fun of media-induced paranoias and laugh at terrorism in a more upfront manner than even South Park would — viz. the show’s worst episode ever, where they were at such a loss with what to do of Bin Laden that they made a lousy Tex Avery imitation, a far cry from the Lamont Hotel Iranian employee joking about “his people”. No wonder the show didn’t last longer.
It set me in such a good mood, I found myself laughing watching Friends afterwards. That’s something.
