A little “golluming” at the interview table.

A very substantive but fun episode. We had Stephen’s approval of Denny’s new Hobbit-themed breakfasts, for they “will turn your intestines into Mount Doom!” A really fantastic Word – we are seeing a lot of Words at the end of this year, aren’t we? Tonight’s is about Moms and Dads who will do anything to make their kids seem accomplished, even bribing tutors, rather than do the hard work of instilling character in their children themselves.

Truly sad to See Bob Dole lending his dignity, in deteriorating health, only to see the United Nations disabilities bill rejected in the Senate. It is breathtaking that the presence a respected lion of Republican part, and his quiet witness couldn’t sway the GOP to abandon its right-of-right ideology for a relatively straightforward human rights bill.

Onto happier things, what did you think of Andy Serkis? As much as he is an amazing actor, I don’t want to see him playing all the roles in Hollywood via computer generation. I like him, but I like the old-fashioned straight up, non-computer generated folks too.

Feel free to shout out this ep in the comments. I will update the guide a more in a bit.

“Yes, eat like a Hobbit. Because at Denny’s, you can’t eat like a human.”

    Seems like there has been a change of plan. Andy Serkis is guest in this episode, and Peter Jackson is a guest in the next one.

    @Mrc I know, nice little switcheroo there! Thanks for the heads up.

  • Katt

    Andy Serkis was such a fun guest. I don’t know why I just assumed he was America, I had no idea he was British.

    I wonder how many meals Stephen has eaten at Denny’s?

    Love the ”YOU… SHALL… pass.” and ”golluming” during the interview.
