Whenever they have people actually connected with the show, like Nicole to or Gimple or one of the actors, it is good.
Whenever they have a random actor of another show, like that Mindy Project chick or Marilyn Manson or that chubby black chick that kept trying to ship Carol and Daryl.... it sucks.
memo to Chris H: don't have guests who have no connection to the show. These actors like this last one who was Badger on BB, provide absolutely nothing of value and only like to hear themselves talk.
While we should have been hearing more insights from Chad Coleman this week, we had to listen to the inanity of the Badger dude trying to be entertaining and failing.
I would rather they had some random camera man or key grip that actually works on the show than these actors and comedians from other shows that are only interested in pumping up themselves.
I doubt Chris Hardwick has total control over who comes on the show. I think he does a good job at keeping things running smooth, on topic and moving onto the next topic. The only time I ever saw him flustered was when Marilyn Manson was on, but we were all pretty much going what the actual fuck during that one.
I like most of the guests they have on the show. Badger was a great guest I thought, he had me laughing more than once.
Also, since we have an established Talking Dead thread, and this has turned into talking about recent episodes, I'm merging it into the existing Talking Dead thread.
