As an American I enjoy Russell Brand 75% of the time. I love him on the Big Fat Quiz. I loved Forgetting Sarah Marshal and Get Him to the Greek. I don't care much for his stand-up, or his ex-wife, but 3/4 is a pretty good fraction of enjoyment. I was expecting this show to bomb hard and get sh*t ratings, and I was right. I also expected this show to suck hard, and I was wrong. For some reason, Brand on a stage for a half hour is enjoyable to me. I really think that people should give this show a chance. Really, it's interesting to see Brand exploit his intelligent opinions. I mean, yeah he is a little obnoxious, but that's his shtick. And it works. Good show, I will definitely keep watching...God knows this will get canned. And that's a damn shame, if only typical Americans would give it a chance...
