There have been so many issues that we anticipated coming into the March 3 episode of Final Week Tonight with John Oliver, together with the unofficial Willy Wonka expertise in Scotland that took Twitter by storm. Have been we glad it was talked about? Certain, however we additionally want that it had longer than 10 seconds of airtime.

Nonetheless, we do acknowledge that it is a busy time in relation to the information. The present opened with a section in regards to the Supreme Courtroom, which largely gave the host an opportunity to revisit his section about Clarence Thomas from earlier within the season. To this point, the Justice has not accepted that provide of a somewhat unbelievable wage plus a large RV to retire from his place … and he actually gained’t and Oliver is aware of this. It’s actually simply a chance to proceed to play out that bit.

As for the principle section tonight, this was actually one which has been a very long time coming: Airplanes. In any case, take into account what occurred with that Boeing catastrophe not that way back that received a variety of public consideration. The truth right here is that there are such a lot of different issues throughout the airline business that we merely have no idea about. Why? Effectively, airplanes are usually not part of life for each American however, past simply that, there are a handful of huge corporations who’ve a significant share of the market. Particularly, Boeing is on the prime of the record, and that’s the reason that they had the lion’s share of consideration in the course of the episode.

If you’re watching Final Week Tonight for data (which appears like it’s the level no less than typically, proper?), we do suppose that what we noticed on this section delivered. There was a lot in regards to the firm that we weren’t conscious of beforehand, together with their onetime file of overwhelming success. This was a historical past lesson as a lot as something, and we didn’t even suppose that Oliver himself hated Boeing. That is extra about what went unsuitable, and the methods it could possibly be improved — albeit with additional humor.
