I just finished Netflix's David Letterman series. It was funny and informational. But it did not draw me in.
For starters, I wish he would have said something substantive about Donald Trump. It seems like every episode he made a jab at him. Which is fine if you're a talkshow host and you simply want to entertain a sympathetic audience.
But it seems as though his Netflix show was supposed to be more like a deep dive into the lives of some of his celebrity friends, in addition to new friends. And for that reason, his generic criticism of Donald Trump didn't really add anything to the conversation, It was almost as though he would say something generic in hopes that it'd go into into an echo chamber.
One exception, his episode with Howard Stern. Stern didn't parrot agreement. And, therefore, their conversation seemed a couple minutes long, and gave the audience something.
I enjoyed all the episodes — JAy-Z and Tina Fey were standouts for me.
Have you watched the series?
