Howard you stayed to long at the rodeo! you leave them wanting more, not less. What's endearing about Howard at this point in his life? his self serving political views? (Israel, gays, taxes, The Law) His overwhelming greed? His speaking with two tongues monologues set up in advance by robin or a perfectly placed phone call by a perfectly sounding, articulate Midwestern woman or man (staged?) proclaiming their intense admiration of his manly and talented perfection? his i am a victim of the man underdog tirades, while being himself a hyper rich man that works 12 hours a week in a highly pampered environment and has been driven by limo and flown mostly in private planes for the last 30 years, while many Americans struggle to make ends meet? Or the fact that we get to watch as he becomes richer and ridicules anyone else's attempts to get paid or be successful? especially the underlings in his staff whom he basically pays starvation wages! or his attempt to package his money grubbing attention whore, star fucker wife as some hot mother Theresa type that would have still played Costello to his abbot had he been a humble plumber? i mean how on earth can you like this version of stern?
