It was like being at a real talk show! I don't know if that sounded back-handed, but I liked it. I bought into Dean Harder's character of Johnald Slow and I'm so glad he's not like Jiminy Glick or some incompetent-for-comedy's-sake-type. His guest, when I was there, was Dave Rudge from Half Pints, a local Beer Brewer in Winnipeg. I wasn't sure what to expect, exactly, eventhough the majority of us have watched talk shows and even mock-shows like "Larry Sanders".  I always find it odd seeing white people doing hip-hop, but props to Roni Ternopolski for "gettin' jiggy wit it!". I missed last year's show, and it would've been neat to have watched it everyday for the hosts, but alas, I had many a fringe show to catch. Am I saying I liked this show? Yeah, it's a'ight.
