Full Frontal with Samantha Bee: Godspeed, you terrifying, fundamentalist swamp Reagan
May 10, 2016 7:24 AM - Season 1, Episode 11 - Subscribe

Bee-Yoncé mourns the loss of Human Twilight Zone Music Ted Cruz, looks at the effects of the poor turnout in the North Carolina midterms (you didn't bother to vote) and brings Patton Oswalt to present a piece on Crisis Pregnancy Centers.

Oh, and Kasich dropped out too.

Full Episode playlist. Extras feature the full song and outtakes from the CPC piece.

I'm surprised Patton Oswalt was uh...up to filming this. I'm guessing it happened before his wife died?

A month ago, it seems. Good to see him, anyway.

Samantha Bee is the actual best.

It dawned on me after watching this episode that watching her has become the comforting rage catharsis for the current bullshit that Jon Stewart was during the Bush years.

At this point, it's safe to say Samantha Bee is the heir to Jon Stewart mantle. John Oliver is finding stuff you should be angry about but don't know it, Wilmore is doing his own thing, Noah is still trying to find what his thing is and Colbert seems to be doing his political bits on the same gear as in CR, but without the character. Bee is the one filtering the bullshit and turning it into awesome.

I was wondering what Michelle Branch has been up to. Great to see her here!
