The Carlin Special

Tonight I watched the new George Carlin HBO special from last weekend and... is it just me, or did it totally suck? I've loved Carlin's comedy over the years, and his 2001 bit, "Complaints and Grievances," was one of my favorite ever, and I eagerly awaited the new one- but I laughed maybe twice the entire time. Carlin has always been morbid and cynical- this time he was both, but forgot to be funny.

One problem is that George looks about 15 years older than he did in his last special four years ago. It may be because Carlin recently went through a stint in rehab- perhaps he's suffering the Aerosmith-like problem of leaving his talent behind when he got sober. Carlin's routine consisted almost entirely of long setups that went no where, non-stop America-bashing, done-to-death subjects, and not one unfunny 20-minute rant about a televised "Suicide Channel," but rather two of them. Just horrible stuff, and twice as unfortunate when we know Carlin's capable of so much better.
