    Spenser Confidential

    ★★★

    This was classic Mark Wahlberg. Always good entertainment to see him in his element. I also liked the supporting cast. Everyone played their part well, most notably Iliza Shlesinger and Winston Duke. They both had me cracking up in every scene they were in.

    The plot started off leading me to believe that there was a mystery for viewers to solve, but either it was too easy or having a clue-driven mystery wasn't the intent. There was a point about an hour in that I knew who the antagonist would be, and most viewers will probably catch it, too.

    Dave Chappelle: The Kennedy Center Mark Twain Prize for American Humor

    ★★★★½

    This was surprisingly great and inspiring!

    This was a solid special from him and I enjoyed most of it. I personally lost a little interest about midway through because he had a couple rehashed jokes and a couple jokes…

    Iliza Shlesinger: Unveiled

    ★½

    I was impressed with Iliza's non-stop high energy and performance. She really put on a show filled with wit and admirable execution.

    I thought bits of it were funny but ended up feeling mostly like a lull. Despite the amount of words and takeaways this had to offer, it still felt like a single topic being covered in a number of ways for the duration of the special. It's like when you find yourself and your friends building on the same joke for a little too long to the point where the ideas start getting more underwhelming and less funny than the last.
