Heil, everybody. Craig welcomes novelist and professor Laila Lalami, comedian Dan Levy, and actress Julie Bowen to defend one tyrant at a time, choosing from sure winner Adolf Hitler, Pol Pot, Ghadaffi, Genghis Khan, Kim Jong-Il and Bloody Mary.

This episode seemed somewhat better to me but I cannot pinpoint why. Laila Lalami was knowledgeable and Dan Levy was okay. Not sure what Julie Bowen brought to the party...she's perfectly likable but didn't add much here. Thought having Hitler in the lineup was pretty weak. Enjoyed the epilogue. Really wish this show was just a panel show discussing historical figures and events.

Thought having Hitler in the lineup was pretty weak.

Especially with the proviso that they weren't including Stalin.

It's the History Channel. Of course they had to feature Hitler.

Although, while taking off Stalin was pretty obvious, not sure what was the point on leaving Hitler, as he could probably beat Stalin. With those two out, Pol Pot was the #1 contender (I'd pick him over Hitler).
