Well funny lady Wanda Sykes finally got her talk show off the ground and I’m here with my thoughts and of course I’d love to hear yours too. The show started off with a dig at Ann Coulter, which I have to admit I thought was amusing. It also was a good indication of exactly where the show was going to head politically.
The show slowed somewhat when Wanda’s pal Keith Robinson made his appearance, it seemed clunky and even managed to throw Sykes off her game, but she fought to bring things back. Wandarama was a good monologue other than the whole thing was was Wanda obviously reading off the prompter. The odd dildo segment that followed seemed like it should be on another show and despite the guest appearance of Julia Louis Dreyfuss, still seemed like it was trying too hard.
Overall I like Wanda Sykes and I enjoy it when she’s politically aware and wraps up good political satire with real world issues. As a first episode this wasn’t too bad, though it was glaringly obvious it was a first show, given the stumbling and lack of flow. Hopefully it will pick up as it goes.
