Justin Robert Young, who also wrote it.

The bit was definitely well written. I also liked how it knows things suck because its sensors are made of YouTube comments.

I'm curious about the phenomenon wherein a pair of aviators makes a lesbian look dyked the **** out, while someone like Paris Hilton can wear a pair and it looks girly.

Well, superficially with the cases you're citing, attractiveness. Possibly age.

Right answer.

Still, is Swish ugly? I mean, for a tech pundit.

You know, as much as Game On is a trainwreck, Veronica gets some good interviews.

O'Dell
Silverman
Dvorak

Not exactly a thrilling lineup.

There's something weird going on with O'Dell. Last three appearances I can remember all involve Dvorak. Wonder if she's one of the few willing or Leo just likes the dynamic, because she always seems to get upset at something he says once per episode.

I tune her out TBH. I find her mannerisms pretty off-putting.

Leo did thank her after the show for being cynical.

Her voice or something is slightly grating. Slightly. I'd still rank her in the top half of guests usually on the show.

You know, I've only seen her twice. I shall try to remain open when she returns.

Last week's Game On was pretty weak, but Veronica gets points for her "arrow to the knee" t-shirt.

He really is tiresome.

I mean, it's the same exact schtick every time.

Does he ever add any interesting insight into anything at all?

He just sits over there and calls everything stupid.

My sig is 1 pixel too big.

Or he derails the show. Or complains that other people are derailing the show.

Dvorak is a classic panelist... but he's best used sparingly.

My sig is 1 pixel too big.

Yeah. He's been overused lately, but I don't think I want him to go away totally.

I see Game On getting whacked right about when that starts to happen.
