Last Week Tonight with John Oliver: North Korea

  • Violence in Charlottesville, where a Neo-Nazi drove a car into a group of counter protesters, killing one and injuring several others, after which Donald Trump refuses to admit that Nazis are bad. Oliver: "David Duke and the Nazis really seem to like Donald Trump, which is weird because Nazis are a lot like cats. If they like you, it's probably because you're feeding them."
  • AND NOW: HIGHLIGHTS FROM ROBOCUP 2017, first without, and then vastly improved by Univision Deportes Commentator Luis Omar Tapia.
  • Main Story: North Korea, the most dangerous rogue nation in the world, and its leader Kim Jong Un, whom Donald Trump seems to be personally insulted by, resulting in a dangerous exchange a couple of weeks ago between the two thin-skinned madmen. Last Week Tonight put together a helpful package of information on the country, revealing such facts that the accordion is the country's national instrument, and that video of US television programming, most notably NCIS, is smuggled into North Korea on USB drives. At the end LWT presents a special number by "Weird Al" Yankovich asking North Korea not to nuke us. YouTube (27m) - Metafilter

If you don't want people to question distances within the world of the show maybe don't start each episode with a map. [view]

I think that the staleness of taking the piss out of super-hero-team movies might obscure the real meat of this episode which is the relationship between Morty and Rick. Or even Rick's relationship with Rick. In short, we have seen Sober(ish) Rick on many occasions take actions that hint at affection for his family. To me, the most striking of... [more]

80% of the bad decisions made in the last two seasons could be negated by Sansa saying, "Hey! Long time no see. Let's crack open a bottle of wine and catch up." In D&D speaking in unison voice: "Women talk to each other!?" [view]

Jesus Fucking Christ that was terrible and stupid. The plan to go beyond the Wall was stupid to begin with. What they did beyond the Wall was stupid. And apparently Daenerys was like 30 minutes away? Then why the hell didn’t she just fly up herself to see the dead? Another “dramatic” fall into water only to emerge moments later, then a... [more]

Will the zombie dragon breath ice? Oh it's totally gonna breathe ice. And there will be a scene where a living dragon shoots fire at it in a mid-air battle and then we will get a shot of the fire and ice smashing into each other. Because of course. [view]

Also, did it feel to anyone else like the writers couldn't keep track of how many people set out on the idiot ice expedition? I swear it ranged from 8 to a dozen-plus. [view]

Sometimes stuff gets included in trailers that doesn't make it to the screen. So that's also a possibility. Right, like when Balki paints Larry's face with the roller. [view]

I just wonder what the White Walkers and the army of the dead do all day. Do they spend all their time standing perfectly still with menacing aspect? That's what they're doing whenever we see them. Is there a whole White Walker society? They've got those huge chains so maybe they can forge things which takes a lot of skill. Maybe in fact it... [more]

Why do Whitewalkers wear clothes? Re-watched the dragon raising scene to see how the chains were attached and became fascinated by the amount of buckles on the Night King's outfit. They all have matching boots and outfits like a Eurovision group. Some of those little buckles would require someone else to help you dress. The Whitewalker help each... [more]
