There are some very good bits in this comedy special.* Chris Rock manages to be funny while taking about the end of his marriage and what he did wrong. Along with the funny parts, there were some on-point observations as when he compared how connected he and his wife were (through social media, cell phones and texting) versus his own parents, who said goodbye to each other in the morning and didn’t speak again until the work day was over.
Cost: Netflix subscription
Where watched: at home with Matt.
*My personal favorite, best thought of in your best Chris Rock voice:
In response to a school orientation where his daughter’s class was told, “You can do anything!” Rock’s reply was, “You can do anything you’re good at, as long as they’re hiring.” Pause for laughter. “And even then, it helps to know someone.”

We watched this and I felt quite a bit meh about it. I love his comedy and have watched previous specials. Yes there were very funny moments but I didn’t feel it was consistent (for my complete enjoyment).
Interesting. I didn’t realized you watched comedy specials. I mean, I haven’t, because they’ve always been on cable, but perhaps with Netflix, I will watch more.
