The Problem of The Henry Rollins Show is Henry Rollins Himself !
It's a talk show yet with strongly-worded objecting tone. The thing is what's its agenda, direction, whatever? (Henry Rollins) answers this question, describing himself as well, by "I'm An Angry American". Well, he looks pretty angry to me !
(Rollins) determines to seem scary. Look not at his physique, wide neck, or forever black costumes, but to his stern way of talking and ruthless look to the camera's eye. He intimidates the viewers every episode "..AND A LOT OF MY OPINIONS !" as if in case you wouldn't complete the episode, he would find you and eat you !
Who is (Rollins) in the first place ? An Actor ? I didn't watch him unless in minor, mostly baddie, characters in some movies. And nothing said he has a talent at all. So I hated, hated, hated when he was hosted in a show named Ultimate Film Fanatic, and as a judge ??!! OH MY GOD. Who is this guy to judge anyone got anything to do with movies ???!!!
Singer ? For me I can't stand his music or performance. Whenever I glimpse him with a mike to sing or play; "Mute" is the only answer I have !
Host ? By listening to him he isn't a fine one. I can't recall something insightful or witty he ever said. In fact his remarks are so silly, and his speech is always unjustifiably harsh !
So in conclusion he's angry scary dude. It's hard to bear him in his own show. Hence the only watchable thing about it is the guests. How does he manage to bring them, I don't know. They talk frankly, heartfelt, and most importantly without a laughing audience. If only I could remove (Rollins)'s voice and image from the cadre !
I read that he has a large sun tattoo on his back accompanied with the words "Search and Destroy". I hope he doesn't mean anyone critiques him by that !
