Quote of the Show
“James Spader could literally, excuse me everyone, pass gas on television and we would watch it, like it and enjoy it; and I’ll tell you why, because it would have a beginning, middle, and end – he would think about it, then the fart would come out, and then, after that, there would be a resolution.”- Referee & Critic
