I’m a strange person and I’m well aware of this fact. Also, I don’t care.
I love the Match Game with Alec Baldwin. This is amazing. And the campy way he’s all in is incredible. Seriously, he’s toting around a Bob Barker style mic and hamming it up for the crowd. The decor is straight out of the 70’s, giving it a nostalgic feel. Honestly though, the people who remember watching this thing when it was originally on are either dead or can’t stay up late enough to watch the new show. It was on at 9:30 pm last night and that was pushing it for me. Don’t judge! I had a long and very stupid day and stupid makes me sleepy.
Aside from stupidity, I think what makes this fun is that Alec Baldwin is clearly having a blast. He’s enjoying himself and not ashamed to show it. Everyone seems to be having a good time and laughing. Sometimes, I find people laughing funnier than the actual jokes. I don’t know why. There also isn’t any weirdness about someone being a celebrity vs a normal person. They’re all just having fun.
A little aside…Horatio Sands was on last night as one of the panelists. What’s he doing with his life lately? Just wondering, you know, for a friend…
There’s a part of me that thinks maybe Alec Baldwin is a real asshole but also ton’s of fun. You know…like me.
