C.K. has gone super arty. His Fox show was already arty. Horace and Pete was alright for a play, it was. But it was SUCH a stage play. You have to give him credit for this: not very many people even -try- to do that, and he succeeded in capturing the atmosphere of a live play on camera. He's just getting more and more esoteric.

I feel like Bill Burr is going to just start screaming "FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK" on stage for 30 minutes and call it a set. And i'd pay to see it! Burr's last special seemed a little spiteful, even for Burr. I don't remember any jokes from it, I do remember the impression of "Wow, that dude was not in a good mood at all that night, was he?". But I do remember liking it.

Burr is one divorce away from turning into Sam Kinison, and it will be glorious.

Da Bomb gets everyone.
It tastes like pure shit. There's other sauces with similar/higher scoville ratings but they don't taste like battery acid so it's not as bad of an experience. Their last dab sauce is hot as fuck but tastes good so it's not nearly as big of an issue.

Oh I'm sure this is true, I'm just commenting on the show itself.

Correct me if I am wrong but Da Bomb is the only sauce that has been featured in every single episode?

Sean doesn't keep it in the lineup because it is a good sauce with a good flavor that he thinks people should buy, no, he keeps it in the lineup precisely because it is battery acid. Almost every guest says, "That tastes bad." But then they also almost always lose their minds trying to deal with it.

I also think Burr had it right, it should be #10. But I also think I know why they keep it in the lineup at #8. It's the watershed moment. If you can survive #8, then #9 and #10 aren't as bad because they are actual real sauces that are designed to not only be hot, but to taste good. I think this is a theme in this show and probably a designed theme. Da Bomb is designed to hit the guests like a brick, but then #9 and #10 are like a nice break, a nice come-down.

Almost every guest reacts to Da Bomb, but then thinks that #10 isn't all that bad in comparison. I think it works for the production of the show. You kick them in the face with the battery acid, and then you gently let them recover and promote their show with the last dab to bring it all home. It's brilliant.

Alton rated da bomb as hot but not tasty, i have a pic of his re-order

I'd trust Altons palate over anyone ever on that show or food/show business.

It's not exactly about palate though, it's about show production and the animal reaction that people have. In such a case, Alton Brown's palate can be seen as irrelevant. Da Bomb isn't in there to taste good or bad to a connoisseur. It's in there to make the show work on the average layman celebrity. Stop being a low-tier Asian.
