  1. Have to love Kochie’s enthusiasm. Great to have some fun for a change. Still having trouble getting used to Nat’s interview style but it’s getting better I think. How good is Survivor this season? Loving it !

  2. I think The Cheap Seats has settled into the format a bit better now. It flows more smoothly. I hadn’t seen Akmal: Transparent before and it started off well, but switched about 15 minutes in when the stand-up routine turned to outdated news events. It coincides with his current comedy tour, but it’s a problem with some comedy repeats when this happens. Same with other comedy repeats like The Last Leg.
