Could Such a Fear Be So Funny!?
26 July 2015 | by ehavardSee all my reviews

Satire is a dish only served well-done for it to work. And the boy's at HBO (Kim Benabib & Roberto Benabib) have done just that! From the first 60 seconds of the first episode I have not stopped laughing at what is hurting this world so much! Jack Black has always been a few shy and we all love him for it, but I had no idea that Academy Award winning actor Tim Robbins could ever be so funny! With roles like his in my all time favorite SyFy movie "Code 46" not to mention movies like "The Shawshank Redemption", and "Jacob's Ladder" that his portrait of Secretary of State Walter Larson, a sex crazed, no brain-mouth filter deep down good guy who has had too much to drink most times is so out-of-pocket that it is such a joy just to hang on for the ride! With all the racial, social, sexual, and political land minds they dance on each and every show, not one has been off color. Once again, waiting for Sundays and HBO is back on the menu!
