Re: Inside Amy Schumer

Kind of surprised by that too, this season has been hit or miss with the fans but absolutely crushing it with critics. (NSFW)

Re: Inside Amy Schumer

I remember watching the first episode or two if this show when it premiered and dropping it. Due to all the critical acclaim, I started catching up on the old episodes and watching this season. Some of the skits are hit or miss, but there is usually at least gem per episode that is really worth it. I am glad I picked this back up.

Re: Inside Amy Schumer

I just watched all of season two, and have watched a few of season three. I've done searches a few times but didn't bother to create a thread. I really enjoy it, but it is highly hit or miss. Didn't like the 12 Angry Men show much, and typically not a fan of the on the street segments or the go deeper segments at the bar.

I love how her legs get shinier and shinier every camera cut.

I agree they had some great actors and comics who did some spot on impressions of the original cast / actors.

I thought it was a great, original concept to have a 30 minute episode so true to the movie that did not get boring, loose momentum, etc.

Look at every SNL skit.. they seem to run sooooo long.. but this left me wanting more after 30 minutes.

Well done Amy & Co.

That skit seemed like it was a combination of Conan and Letterman and when she mentioned Star Wars lol.

Re: Inside Amy Schumer (Comedy Central) - Series Thread

This season has been the best so far.
Seems lke she has more room to do things she really wanted to do commentary on.
Like the 12 show and the Last Bleepable Day sketch.

The Talk show bit nailed it.
Although I did think maybe Hader was a little too dead on with what seemed like a Letterman.
In other words not the right time, maybe 4 years ago would have been good.

watching Bill Hader pizza boy sketch was just painful - Bill you're much better than the script writing here, don't debase yourself...

Didn't like the 12 Angry show, but this last ep was awesome. Loved the sketch with the women profusely apologizing, and the riff on Gwyneth Paltrow's goopy appearance on Conan and Hader's celeb suckup Letterman mannerisms were spot on.
The gigolo and AshleyMadison interviews have been some of the better Amy Goes Deep segments.

She's appearing at one of the local Indian Casinos this Friday (5/22). Although I somewhat enjoy her TV show I must be way too cheap to spend $39 to $92 to hear her talk about her "lady parts".

I disagree again. Feel like this season she keeps going back to the well of "I'm not attractive enough", and while that comes with some good social commentary, she's been overdoing that angle this season.

Damn. I always record that one because of DVR conflicts and last week I really noticed that they were dropping a lot of fucks without censorship. Progress!

Also, Wyatt Cenac seems to have found his niche as a guy in bar parody sketches lately.
