Perpetual Grace, LTD: Wandering Left  Season 1, Ep 5

On Father's Day in Mexico, Pa has a classroom monologue ("A little bit about me, personally I own a helicopter, and, yeah, I'm a black belt in karate with red stripes for some secret shit I know"), and James guides Glenn out of the desert ("Left isn't west. Sometimes it is, I mean, but sometimes it isn't. Life taught me that.") We get some backstory from Sheriff Hector Contreras ("I'm gonna call you 'Speedy,' not for Speedy Gonzales 'cause that's not cool").

Last Week Tonight with John Oliver: The US Coal Industry  Season 4, Ep 16

So recently you may have heard these things happening....
  • The mistrial in Bill Cosby's sexual assault case, the result of which prompted Cosby to exclaim Fat Albert's catchphrase "Hey hey hey!" while exiting the courtroom, further soiling all of our memories.
  • The incredibly unpopular AHCA Take Two, accompanied by a fitting graphic of the GOP logo with a blue skull superimposed with stars for eyes. Of the version passed by the House, Trump (who held a presentation where he celebrated its passing) was quoted as saying it was "mean," the irony entirely lost on him. Its very existence is causing problems in insurance markets, as companies decide if they want to pull out of the current markets or not.
  • And Now: Things People's Fathers Used To Say
  • Main Story: Coal, coal mining jobs, coal executives, coal mining companies, executives of coal companies, and Donald Trump's fixation on the mineral, discussed divorced of its (tremendous) ecological toll. Eventually the story comes around to involving a giant squirrel.... YouTube (24m)
