    I love how they lay on the irony so thickly with details like “What a great first week” and “I have a big date this weekend” hahaha

    Who keeps green lighting all these Will Ferrel comedies? All they do is bomb, he's had 9 bombs in the last decade with Downhill projected to be his 10th. Who the hell gets 10 chances like that? He should have done the same thing as Adam Sandler, people would much rather be able to fall asleep to his comedies at home on Netflix than ever even consider paying to see them. What a train wreck.

    90s my butt no way that scene is from the 90s - TV was a lot lighter back then, this is too dark , heavy & vicious in tone - and voila my senses didn't betray me after a quick google search

    I remember him on the Guardian. It wasn't a cop show. He got a short screen time, but quite good.

    As Ron Burgundy would say, "Boy, that escalated quickly. I mean, that really got out of hand fast."

    Stephen can't say "damn" but they'll show a gun shot to the head on CBS. America is messed up.

    That clip was so cringe. The writing..."good first week." So many "first week" mentions. He never stood a chance.

    That's not Will Ferrell. Sorry Stephen Colbert, Late Night dude, Ferrell NEVER appears on a late night talk show dressed in a suit! If it were Will Ferrell, he'd be in giant diapers and a cowboy hat.This guy is just some poser tool and what the shit.

    Cop show? That was the Simon Baker (pre-The Mentalist) show about him working in the nonprofit law firm.

    We watched The Guardian back in the day. Definitely not a cop show, it was about a law firm lawyer who is sent to work at a charitable public defenders office as part of a plea deal. Glad Will could remember being a lawyer and not a cop since they're exactly the same thing?

    I’m not sure if the guy with the Virgin Mary tattoo is the general of the third army or not. I have to meet them then I’ll know and it takes sometime and it’s better that they have no idea. Plus I’m pretty sure the chastisement I have to give my armies of living as the commander of gods armies isn’t going to go over very well with the MS13. But oh well. Wait till I get hold of the P9 that’s not even the whole army, that’s just a group I made to go after Satan because if I go at her she’ll surrender and I’ll have to expect but I’m sending the P9 cause they don’t except surrender and hate weakness.
