We need Samantha Bee now more than ever. Her spot-on analysis of the country and the situation we find ourselves in currently- always on-point, and we love her ironic humor!! She takes a lot of hits for being Canadian, " how dare she comment on what's going on here"-she's actually a U.S. Citizen, by choice, and, like many of us, aspires to make us better. Not by wearing a hat that sports an empty slogan that isn't even original and might as well be pointed and white with eye holes cut out, but by asking the hard and serious questions in a way that makes us laugh but also to think.
I still need to point out, although I'm deducting no points because it's certainly not a content issue, this show deserves no less than five stars -although this is labeled as "season 9" , we are currently, according to TBS, actually in only season THREE of this series. At the very end of January 2019, someone decided to break up "season 8" from " season 9" , which began the very first week of February, making a purchase of "season 9" necessary , on a series which had aired exactly one week prior and which is reportedly in only its third actual season. I don't know of any other shows that do this, or why it happens, but it's really unfair and confusing. Shows like Empire, The Blacklist, Bring It, and This is Us - very popular shows - take MUCH longer breaks than one week without labeling a show that comes on exactly seven days, or even sometimes months, later and calls them a completely different season, along with a new price tag to purchase. I get confused because when it doesn't show up in my cue, when I know that it was on the night before and all of my other programs show up, I've learned that I always need to check and see if, even after only 7 or 8 episodes, we need to once again purchase yet another "season". I don't know who is responsible for this and am assuming it's not Amazon because this is literally the only show I know of that pulls this, but this is really not fair to the consumer at all.
