    Martin Short was a good villain in one of the Law And Order SVU episodes and it was all drama there. No comedy needed.

    I don't know how many Americans young or old ever watched SCTV on TV or TVclip, but if you haven't, it's well worth it. Halfwits drops into my recommended list every couple of months, I watch it and laugh, and repeat the process a couple months later.
    As for Jiminy Glick well...just let him do what he wants.

  • no, i don't want no slugs

    Love Martin Short. I used to love Stephen but lately he just irritates me. It feels... weird. Maybe I'm just being overly critical, but he keeps shifting the tone of things and not really bringing out the best from his guests. Like the whole Bavarian Seafood thing... he's making points that aren't necessary, or maybe it's the way he's doing it that cuts the flow. I mean, he's a great person, but just... i don't know how to explain it...

  • WalterLiddy

    I guess Colbert figured the audience had missed a joke there so he'd better point it out. He's really not great as an interviewer when he's not doing a character.

    Stephen Colbert is no longer funny. I think it's because he chose politics over humor--he's lost his comedic edge.

    Another Canadian who lives in the US because of what? Is it the lower taxes or what else. So much for Canadian patriots. We new Canadians who came from other countries to become and choose to become Canadians and then you have Canadian ice hockey players, actors, musicians or comedians, etc. who live in the US and they are still treated like they were the local
    aristocrats. But we new Canadians were treated like we were second class citizens especially if you did not come from a first English or French language country. We were called "functionally illiterate"and therefore dismissed as fully functional Canadians. But those Canadians, moving to the US because of their sport, music, actors, comedians, etc. were treated quiet differently than us who choosed to come to Canada, pay taxes, for healthcare, etc. And yet you out the Canadians who still live in the US as Canadian heroes but not as people taking care of themselves and profit from the US. You Ex-pats should treat us new-comers a lot better because we were choosing living in Canada rather than in the US. And yet we are treated as not Canadian enough but Waiyne Gretzky is more Canadian than we are who choose Canada as their home.
