I watched:

LA TO VEGAS:  The pilot episode for this new FOX series about a plane 
full of idiots that travels back and forth between Los Angeles and Las 
Vegas.  Given how short that flight is, I have no idea how they find so 
much time to wander around the plane.  In any case, this was really bad. 
  One and done for me.

THE BAD BATCH:  A 2016 film about life in Texas starring Suki Waterhouse 
and Jason Mamoa (FRONTIER).  Nothing about the setting/world of this 
film made any sense at all.  I don't know how much was intended as post 
apocalyptic world and how much was prison colony and how much was just 
typical Texas lifestyle.  Jim Carrey, Keanu Reeves, and Giovanni Ribisi 
all show up in cameos here, but they don't bring much to the table other 
than quirk.  I'm not sure who this movie's target audience might be. 
Perhaps with a bunch of nudity added it could have risen to the level of 
MACHETE or NUDE NUNS WITH BIG GUNS, but as it stands, the film is 
nothing more than a wasteland.

and though I agreed with his political/social opinions about almost 
everything, I didn't find his delivery entertaining or his attempts to 
spin jokes on the subject matter at all successful.  He seems to spend 
most of his stage time telling the audience that he is funny and 
successful.  As a result, I didn't even bother with THE BIRD REVELATION, 
so I didn't get to much of anything regarding the sexual harassment in 
Hollywood stuff.

What did you watch?
