But I do like the political nature of Bill Maher's comedy and prose, and while I do not agree on all his points, I do deeply respect his true representation of them; he doesn't mollify his points because others may not want hear them. You have to admire anybody remotely conservative who braves this lion's den, gets the back of their ears flicked all night by Maher and the 2 other guests ganging up on them and still maintains their composure. It is sometimes alarming, other times it's depressing but it's always important. Tim Ryan - will answer viewer questions after Friday's show. You are never sure if you should laugh or wince as Bill takes aim at everything ridiculous about America. You can withdraw your consent at any time. He even lets himself be ridiculed, which is the mark of a fair commentator.

Not to sound snobby, but I'm just saying. But that leads me to the next point. The first time I really took to Bill's style was watching a show where one of the guests Andrew Sullivan, I think slammed a comment of Bill's that they then discussed for a few minutes. There's nothing sadder than this. Bill Maher supporting a movement he doesn't know anything about and basically explaining a group of people are the problem which are his words, literally.
Conversley, the arguments many of the guests are making feel either insightful or clueless and circle, which is another reason the show is such an addicting watch. I'm not aligning the two extremes though because the show does at least have a bit of balance in there and, with Maher a bit more restrained in the panel bits, it could be a lot more valuable as a political discussion show. But then come the guests, and this is where the goods come in. But because we must remember that Maher is first and foremost a comedian, we must also remember that we should not take anything he says seriously - whether it offends us or not; no one said that comedy - not to mention, good comedy - had to always be in good taste. The show has a one-track mind. As a result I'm afraid I cannot comment on the design and appearance of this as a television show, but if I had to guess I'd say its layout is pretty much the same as Leno etc but with some of it spent at an oval shaped table. Instead he tends to let it get out of control and then boom across everyone with his view, take the applause and then move on.
Then he moves into the typical news of the week. The Henry Rollins Show and Real Time are still really good television.

However while others get their say, the show is ultimately Maher's and he does tend to dominate.
Each week I find the panel discussion mostly lively and engaging, the stand-up routine funny and the interview sections interesting. I do give Bill credit for being consistent in his views and even challenging the grain once in a while. Offer can be combined with other discount offers. It's tiresome to watch Maher lead a conversation when it's basically a monologue waiting for agreement. Real Time is good though, don't get me wrong, if it wasn't I would not keep coming back to it. Also, Politically Incorrect was produced four days a week and was pre-recorded, while Real Time only produces one episode a week which is broadcast live.
We wrap up with New Rules where his writers earn the money. It amazes me that a right wing Aussie is about level with an extreme left wing American. This was enough to make it catch my eye shortly after when I was surfing iTunes and saw that this was available as a free podcast. This is my main problem. While his audience is sometimes more leaning to the left, he doesn't shy away from having on the right wing or conservatives, and then it brings about intelligent, sometimes cringe-worthy, discussions.

Prior to 2009, approximately 12 new weekly episodes aired in the spring, followed by another such set of new episodes in the fall. I have to watch this show whenever I notice it is on, even when I find it to be an episode that I have already seen. His guests don't really get to disagree with him. That's a guess and really it doesn't matter so much because what makes me keep coming back to this is the audio. This is the first time I really have had a lot of experience with him and it says a lot that, even as a left-leaner, I find him very extreme at times. A full hour with politics, guests, talking points and a little bit of comedy. Bill Maher was a controversial figure for some time.
