A very cool political round table
28 March 2003 | by (Phoenix, AZ) – See all my reviews

Like another reviewer I never really got into PI or "Politically Incorrect" either. I think mainly because it was to short on top of commercials. Also I really felt like Bill Maher had to hold back because he was on network Television. However he is truly at home on HBO where he and his guests can curse what ever they like with out those nasty censors saying no.

I have to say I in addition to the usually very good round table discussion I really like new rules, the comedy bits. I think this show is very well balanced. The idea that now Bill Maher gets to have what guests he wants is great and to have some of them as semi-regular guests is a great consistency.

Honestly I really can't say enough about this show because during the week leading up to Friday and there is big news I just can't wait to see what Bill Maher and his guests are going to say. You know it will make you mad, sad or just plain apathetic.
