I love the geeking out feeling when you see every show, little by little, bits and pieces of classic Late Night gags making the transition to the west coast, an hour earlier, and a larger audience. Last night we got "In The Year 200...er, 3000," PIERRE RENARD, awkward staring while Max Weinberg gets called a pervert, La Bamba randomness, and the Larry King impersonation(hope he gets to bust out his Trump impersonation soon; that never ceases to crack me up).
And may I just say that maturity and getting older totally blows? I only made it to about midnight during the first two episodes before nodding off. Last night I at least got to see JLD beating down Kenneth the Page and stealing an Oscar. Though really, that makes it identical to Late Night and most late night talk shows: I usually only stick around for the opening comedy unless some guest I really want to see is on.
I'm dying to see my father's reaction to this show. He's a guy who can be heard laughing heartily at Leno's monologue downstairs while I use my computer upstairs.
EDIT: Didn't see that Super Mario thing when I started typing my post. Pretty awesome.
