    Back in the day, that was a question I'd never have to ask, but these days I expect nothing more than marble talk or Dr. Stern trying to diagnose Richard with something stemming from his childhood. Mommy issues perhaps.

    Is it worth checking out on the replay?

    Yeah. It wasn't fun or funny. Howard has completely lost his ability to interview people. He used to be such a great interviewer. Now it's clear that when he interviews someone he couldn't give a shit what they have to say and isn't even paying attention. Plus his annoying habit of interrupting people in mid-response has gotten worse. Roger Waters had to tell him to shut the fuck up so he could respond.

    so much fatty food out there......people can't control themselves.
    it is societies fault......not the fat mommy at homes fault.

    That's what I was afraid of. Even the last several Gilbert appearances stunk. There are no guarantees with the show these days. He's just about to come on and I'm not expecting much.

    And even if you gave a shit about Dick's view on abortion, the Iraq war and George W Bush...you missed nothing as he didn't answer...


    Thankfully...

    I still liked hearing Richard. I never knew he was Catholic which is probably why he continues to live a tortured existence with such angst over issues like homosexuality, abortion, etc. Richard did come in singing show tunes and would sing when he got uncomfortable. And either it was Richard himself or Fred playing drops "Gary? GARY!" which I like a lot. It's never going to be like those old interviews again but I like Richard so I was ok with it.

    Still no Gilbert spotlight from the tapes team.
    They could easily do a week long marathon of Gilbert appearances.
    I know... Howie's new friends would not like the old Gilly tapes.

    I liked it, since Richard Simmons is always able to make me laugh...but Howard trying to be all serious, and talk to him about their relationship, and if he's "loved" in his life... ugh. Cringeworthy.

    I think Richard actually handled it pretty well - breaking into song, and trying his best to talk about the childhood obesity epidemic in this country... if Howard and Robin would've given him a chance to talk, he would've been a little more interesting...

    "I hear you're only worth $15 million. Is that true?" :facepalm:

    The last time Howard allowed Gilbert to be funny was TWO YEARS ago. It was right after they came back from break...after Artie stabbed himself. Howard actually let Gilbert stay for the news and Gilbert did the "It was like a Western" bit.

    Crazy fucking shit, huh? I can't remember any Gilbert appearance since then. I vaguely remember him in after the Aflac thing, but even that's blurry. The few times he was in consisted of Howard bringing up the SNL days over and over. We'll never here a funny Gilbert segment or news again. Damn, that's actually kind of sad. Shit.

    If I remember right Gilbert is banned from the show for spitting in the hallways. This was around a year ago, so that's why you don't see to much of him anymore.
