Trump, this is on you
23 September 2017 | by lee_eisenbergSee all my reviews

This is the first Emmys broadcast that I've ever watched. I knew that a lot of the show was going to be swipes at Donald Trump, especially with Stephen Colbert hosting. The brief appearance by Sean Spicer naturally drew a lot of controversy, since Spicer helped Trump lie to the country. Maybe Spicer wants revenge on his erstwhile boss for firing him.

Otherwise I liked what I saw. I should admit that of all the nominees, the only shows that I've seen consistently in the past year are "Full Frontal with Samantha Bee", "Last Week Tonight with John Oliver", "The Late Show with Stephen Colbert", "Real Time with Bill Maher" and "Saturday Night Live". I've also seen "The Wizard of Lies", "Dolly Parton's Christmas of Many Colors" and scattered segments of "Late Night with Seth Meyers". I liked that John Oliver, Alec Baldwin and Kate McKinnon won (although I would've been inclined to award Leslie Jones; she's the best person on SNL right now). My one real complaint was that the In Memorian segment omitted Dick Gregory.

All in all, I liked what I saw. I hope to see "The Handmaid's Tale" and "Big Little Lies" soon.
