Eagles - "Get Over It" Is the Worst Song of All Time

10/29/2018
More
The Eagles' song "Get Over It" is the worst rock song ever and predicted every single bad thing that the Baby Boomer generation did to this country. It's the classic example of out of touch rich rock stars no longer having anything to say, so they just talk about yelling at the TV during the daytime. It also prefigures the Boomer fretting about millennial snowflakes.

MAGA Bomber Is the Logical Outcome of Trumpism

10/26/2018
More
The so-called MAGA Bomber has been apprehended, who mailed all those pipe bombs to frequent Fox News and Trump targets like Obama, Clinton, and Soros. The accused, Cesar Sayoc, is a 56-year-old Florida man who loves Trump and has a white van with insane pictures all over it. And of course he is. Luke goes into why this kind of violence is the inevitable outcome of Trump's rhetoric and of modern conservatism in general.

Team America Is a Great Comedy (and Completely Wrong)

10/24/2018
More
Team America: World Police is one of the funniest comedies of the 2000's. And it manages that despite having one of the worst political messages of all time and basically supports the Iraq War. Luke looks at how a comedy can be wrong politically, but still funny, but also how that hurts the movie. Also, how Matt Stone and Trey Parker allow their personal dislike of scolding libs to take dumb positions in their work.

Run the Proud Boys Over With a Steamroller

10/19/2018
More
The Proud Boys and their founder Gavin McInnes are the corniest nerds ever. They disassociate themselves with Nazis by making a lame ass men's club that's even lamer than Nazis. Luke goes into why, even by claiming they're not a racist organization, they still serve racist goals and why Antifa will always be cooler than them.

You Can't Have Roseanne Without Roseanne

10/16/2018
More
ABC is bringing back Roseanne without its star, re-titling the sitcom reboot as The Conners. But when you hitch your wagon to an insane racist conspiracy theorist, you need to face the consequences. Luke explains why reboot can't work without Roseanne (and why it should have stayed cancelled) and goes into his Grand Unifying Theory of Television.

Brands' Funny / Hip / Woke Social Media Sucks

10/12/2018
More
Wendy's mean twitter account and all other brands' hip social media accounts are bad and have to go. Luke talks about how lame and calculated the "hip" social media accounts are and why you shouldn't retweet them. But the truly evil accounts are the performatively woke ones.

Why I Hate Deadpool

10/11/2018
More
Deadpool is very bad character who has gotten way too popular because of how he functions as a cultural signifier for nerds. Luke dissects why the character is not a very effective parody of superheroes and why he fails at the alternative as well: just being a "funny" superhero. Also, why the movies don't actually subvert any superhero tropes and actually just reaffirm them.

Should Celebrities Shut Up About Politics?

10/9/2018
More
Taylor Swift made her first ever political post endorsing Democratic candidates, so Boomer MAGA conservatives are predictably filled with red-faced rage. But we're back in the same argument -- should celebrities just shut up about politics? Even when everybody else can't stop posting constantly about it?

Sausage Is Better Than Bacon

10/5/2018
More
In what might be the most controversial episode yet, Luke launches into a takedown of bacon and bacon-related popular culture. Not only is sausage better than bacon, but bacon has upjumped its status relative to other meats. Bacon is good, but it's good in context of what its true role is: a supporting character meat.

The Office Season 2 Is a Masterpiece

10/3/2018
More
On the fifth GOOD OPINIONS ZONE, Luke puts his "professional screenwriter hat" on and talks the second season of The Office and why it's a masterpiece for the qualities it has that later seasons lose. He goes in depth and analyzes the pathos and relatability present that elevates this season in particular to one of -- if not the best -- of all time.

The Constitution Sucks

10/1/2018
More
On the fourth Good Opinions Zone, Luke talks about the US Constitution, why it sucks and why it's bad. And basically why everything that's bad right now is the Constitution's fault -- including Trump, Kavanaugh, and why lame ass small states have so much power. Then he uses his Powers of Good Opinion Having to propose a solution that will fix everything.

What Punishment Does Louis CK Deserve?

9/28/2018
More
On the third Good Opinions Zone, Luke talks about his one-time comedy hero Louis CK and tries to answer the question a lot of people have: how long should he be forced to sit out? Like a truly deft opinion-haver, Luke rejects the premise of your lame question completely. You're dealing with a professional here.

3 Things Disney Got Wrong with Star Wars

9/27/2018
More
On the second Good Opinions Zone, Luke SPEAKS AS A PRO-FES-SION-AL SCREENWRITER and delves into the Disney Star Wars movies and his three biggest problems with them. He talks about how Disney corporate decisions are effecting the narrative of the movies and the very simple backstory the audience was able to infer about Han Solo in the first place.

Harassing Politicians at Dinner Is Good

9/26/2018
More
On the first Good Opinions Zone, Luke talks about all the whining from respectability people who think it's bad that people were shouting at Ted Cruz in a restaurant. But actually, it's good. It's very good. People like Ted Cruz should basically be miserable all the time because they might actually stop what they're doing. Also, what would happen if people started harassing Bernie Sander while he's eating.
