    I know the consensus is to dislike him and I pretty much understand. When I first saw him, probably before Just Shoot Me at some point, I thought 'well, he seems kind of smarmy'. But I'm one who sees into people a bit more and something told me to keep watching him. At some point I just really began to like him. I don't even think I can explain it, but what I see under all that is a basically decent guy, a talented guy, and a very funny guy. I like him and I admit it. :)

    He had a fun little late-night show that got kiboshed with the virus (I'm so sad!!). I really liked that one, too.

    If you have Netflix it got resurrected there as "The Netflix Afterparty", maybe in a slightly different format.

    Oh, I do. Thank You! :)

    Now that you mentioned it, I think somebody told me about this last year and I forgot. D'oh! :oops:

    We like him too but like early Adam Sandler (who we also love) a little can go a long way. My wife and I can watch just about anything he is in. While he can be a good lead if you like him (Dickie Roberts, Joe Dirt) he is much better in a supporting role most of the time.

    I'm sure he's a great guy and like I said, he was great on that show on Comedy Central where he had like a roundtable of comedians and they'd kibbutz back and forth. I just wish, if he was so talented he'd play a different part instead of the same character in everything he does. Sandler for awhile did the same thing, but at some point he played other types of characters, and really showed his acting chops. Spade plays the smart-a$$ and that's about his whole shtick. If you like his shtick, then you'll really like Spade, but if you don't, he gets old fast.

    David Spade did a ripoff of "Tough Crowd with Colin Quinn"? (Which was itself basically a ripoff of "Politically Incorrect", but with all comedians.)

    I don't see where they can go with this show. To me, this is one of those shows that should have ended about 3 years ago. They just keep it going for whatever reason. I'm still watching, but while I used to look forward to it every week, I'm at the point where I'm watching out of habit. I don't know if I'll watch another season, but I guess I'll finish up this one and decide.

    I still enjoy the show. But yeah I think it's about 3 seasons overdue in
    revealing the secret Reddington has been keeping from Keene for most of the series run that has led to them becoming mortal enemies, at least for now. However, I'm sure they're probably thinking they have the 1 more season, maybe 2 if they're lucky, so this will be strung out all the way to the series finale.

    I was surprised The Black List was still on (with SKIP, I miss a lot of promo’s ;)). I also lasted only a few seasons.

    It's like a lot of shows where the initial premise has been worn down and once it's over, they try and invent stuff that makes little sense to keep it going. I liked it because it was different than your typical FBI drama (yeah, talking to you CBS) but now it's just gotten silly.

    And it's worse, because it's one of those shows that's built around a central mystery, and Lucy can only pull the ball away so many times before Charlie Brown gets pissed off and goes home. ;)

    Well, they have to keep the series going until they can figure out a really satisfying answer to the central mystery. And so they have to build it up every season, which makes it harder to find a satisfying answer, so they keep going, etc. Eventually people give up and the show gets canceled, then they can say "if only we'd had one more season to lay out the amazing answer to the mystery!!"

    :cool:
