Sentencing in a Court of Cynicism
13 March 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I love Lewis Black, I've been a big fan for a long time. So when I heard he was finally getting his own show, I knew it was going to be darkly ironic, cutting, and different.

And boy was I not disappointed.

The first episode puts on trial Oprah Winfrey and The Catholic Church. To decide once and for all which is the root of all evil between them.

I won't tell you how it ended, but I will say this. The debates on both sides were sharp, and funny, and with Lewis Black as the much deserving judge, I very much enjoyed the show, and intend to keep watching.

Good stuff Mr. Black, good to have you back.
