New Henson GSN show: Late Night Liars

    I'm so glad there's a thread already on here about this show...I ran across it a few nights ago and wasn't quite sure what I was seeing....I didn't even know if it was Henson affiliated; that's why I joined up...so is this show brand new or has it been on all summer....I kind of like it; I like the puppet characters but I just don't know what to make of it sometimes.

    What's the general consensus on this show from site regulars and apologies for any n00bish behavior/questions.

    Best,
    Walter

    The concept is better than the execution. I'm sure we can all agree to that. I will say this, I actually laughed at the clip of the third episode, so things may just get a little better as time goes by and the series finds itself... I mean, remember how Muppets Tonight didn't come together for the writers until the last episode?

    Problem is the show is TOO written. And by people who really can't come up with anything besides drunken 30+ year old humor (as opposed to drunken frat boy humor... that's worse! It's all 1980's cartoon characters with sex and drugs now). I liked the category "Popes that share the name of cartoon cats" but that was the only thing remotely clever, as was the Mickey Rourke puppet caricature.

    yes I've heard the next "celebrity guest" is going to be Rosie O'Donnell.

    I enjoyed the latest episode, but since Mummy's topic for the two-topic showdown was Gary Coleman, I was surpirsed he didn't mention Avenue Q.

    Only two hours until the new Late Night Liars with Rosie O'Donnell. I can't wait!

    I've yet to see an episode, but the clips online aren't helping me want to watch it. Like the clip from episode 4. I liked the cold open, because that was mostly some nice banter between two characters who are quite full of themselves. Practically all the rest of the jokes had me groaning. And not the corny joke groan.
  9. antsamthompson9 Well-Known Member

    I'll admit the jokes can be a little groany to someone who doesn't like dirty humor. But sometimes they make jokes that aren't dirty but hilarious. Like the weasel. In episode one, his reason for choosing 839$ for the second round was, "That's the number of times I rented High School Musical 3. That Zac Efron is just hilarious!" And for episode 2, his reason for picking 893 for the second round was, "Easy, Larry. That's the boiling piont in degres Kelvin of sulfer hydronydrate with a random diget added to the end of it. (Does random scating.)" Or for episode 3, when he chose 797, he said, "Easy, Larry. That's the number of jelly beans in a jar that contains 797 jelly beans." LOL! Those reasons crack me up everytime!

    I loved the new episode. Donna Kimball did a hilarious job making fun of Rosie! And the jokes the other panelists made about her being a lesbian were gold.

    I'll be honest, the show is really growing on me. I really think the puppets, especially the Weasel and Cashmere, are really great likable characters even if they don't get the chance to shine in the development department. If it weren't for the whole Henson/Disney ownership issues, I'd love to see the five characters of Late Night Liars incorporated into the Muppet troupe as characters to introduce during a new primetime show if it ever comes (then again, I've said the same thing about Tutter and Treelo). The scripting I have no problem with, nobody ever said that all the HA shows have to be improv. I think by the end of the season they'll finally have something.

    I dunno about you, but I REALLY loved the line:

    "I'll stupid blonde you to death, just like Elizabeth!"

    Really... they need to get on the entire cast of that show MORE, especially her. Except Whoopie that is... I still like her.

    I loved the latest episode. Now I know where the "Big P****" Rap comes from.
  15. ploobis Well-Known Member

    I don't know if anybody noticed but Victor Yerrid played the cop who was going through Cashmere's bag.
  16. antsamthompson9 Well-Known Member

    I noticed that too.

    I enjoyed the latest episode. I loved the opening with Shelly compleaning about Justin Biber.

    Sorry about talking about the latest episode now, but I was on vacation. And I saw it tonight when I got home. I liked it. I cracked up at the ending.
