The Henry Rollins Show

I know there are people who dig Henry Rollins. And I wasn’t sure if you guys knew about his show on IFC that comes on at 10pm on Saturdays. No censorship on the show, but censorship only hurts when it hides the nudity. It’s a good show, check it out. Also, No commercials.

Eh. He brings up censorship in practically every single episode (I’ve briefly browsed through a few episodes), and at least on the show he comes across as fairly bland. He just doesn’t seem to have enough personality to carry the show.

I’ve seen it a couple of times. I like him.

I like the show. I think the guests and guest musicians are diverse and interesting. Teeing Off is pretty funny venting. Henry Reconsiders is amusing. His Letters To…are entertaining.
Besides, it’s short (22 mins?) and blunt.

Sorry… IFC? Maybe I am retarded, but what’s that?

A cable channel. I can’t remember what it stands for at the moment.

Independent Film Channel.

I’ve seen one show; the episode with Patton Oswalt. It was obvious that Henry doesn’t have to much say in who he’s going to interview because he basically didn’t know who in the hell that guy was. I can’t blame him, he’s pretty much a putz. Listening to that “King of Queens” dude talk about music, more specifically punk rock, was brutal. And you could almost read his mindset (Patton Oswalt’s); oh shit, I’m going to be interviewed by Henry Rollins and he was in Black Flag so I better make sure to mix punk rock into the conversation.

I checked out the website and a lot of the musical guests look pretty cool. But overall, I don’t think this is Henry’s finest hour.
