5.0 out of 5 stars
Absolutely the only reason I even have HBO
Verified purchase
The show is hilarious, factual, well researched, well written and the best show on TV. The only complaint I would have is that it isn't on every week. This past episode was the last one until February. I didn't start watching until season 4 and thought it was another liberal leaning show. But I loved the show so much I went back and bought previous seasons I hadn't seen and realized he ripped into Obama administration when they did inappropriate things, most of which I didn't know about. Led me to completely rethink how the Obama administration did with "leading" the country. I love the show even more now. It is the most human related show.

Funny and enlightening
Verified purchase
John Oliver is simply hilarious. Although I do not always agree with his personal opinion on things, I do like the particular issues that he brings to light. While I understand that this is a comedy new show, I do like that he focuses on more than just headline news and also brings into focus things that people need to pay more attention to that they are not.

Very funny show, even though it talks about serious issues. It's a clever way of making you aware of these.

I wasn't sure at first if I would like this show, but that quickly changed! I LOVE it. Very Funny. I love John Oliver. Of course, I discovered this show when it is in hiatus. I can't wait for the new season to start!
