This one was my least favorite, actually. I still think their first one was the best (duh, the only better/as good as sequels are Terminator and Godfather).

You might get "Rocky 3," "Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines," "Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King" or "The Dark Knight Rises" OR you might get "Jaws 3-D", "Superman III" or "The Hangover Part III."

First one is still the best, because we weren't sure what to expect -- and they nailed it.

and I'll go further in saying that the show isn't as good overall. They use a tin of the same premises, not just characters. Even most of the new sketches have the feel that they've covered the point before. Finally, I don't like the new format. The change in the opening is fine (if not creative) but I thought it worked much better with them in front of an audience setting up the next sketch with tiny two man bits that had done relation to the point of the coming sketch. The new format of them driving aimlessly in the desert is not only not funny but awkward at times. It fits with the opening and I get the premise but I don't like it. I went from thinking it was one of the best skit shows on CC since Chapelle (seems like CC has used that same format with EVERY new skit show since Dave left so I get trying a new presentation) but I don't like the presentation and most skits now. Turned really fast, IMO. I didn't even chuckle at this clip. South Park will be great until they decide to hang it up but other than that CC bails on shows too quickly, they become popular so fast that the star moves on, they go stale quickly OR it's an unfunny attempt to catch that Chapelle magic & feel to failing results. Kroll Show is amazing but it is also what got him to the level he's at now (I think he is done because he has a few movies lined up). I think Amy Schumer was cancelled & I don't really care if it was. It isn't a bad show but her whole shtick is played out (she's a whore, nothing is a sacred cow, female shock material, quasi-insult comic, etc). Tosh.0 is a format older than the modern internet (Talk Soup, The Mix, etc) & he's moderately funny. His cartoon show is terrible & seems like a consolation prize for continuing the main show. I guess this long reply is just to say that I'm disappointed in how quickly Key & Peele became stale to me. I genuinely liked it a lot. Great cinematic shooting that kept it's initial low budget hidden unlike most new CC sketch shows. New, funny takes on things and observations much like player names, etc. SP & The Daily Show are the only sure bets on CC right now. @Midnight is ok, mostly funny. Colbert leaving will be rough but the new show in its place seems ok after I've seen 2-3 episodes yet it also has the feeling that it might not make it. Anyway, yeah, sad I didn't even chuckle.
