Sacha Baron Cohen - new series

Who is America?

I’m assuming this is the series I’ve seen advertised in the last couple of weeks with the slightly annoying “Something big is coming, so dangerous we can’t even tell you about it” stuff?

I want it to be good
I don’t think it will be good at all

Best thing he’s ever done:

It seems like the whole idea is to get away from his recent output and go back to what made his name in the first place, the weird characters and undercover interviews. I think it will be worth watching, especially if it has a politicised angle which it seems to do.

Really surprised he hasn’t resurrected Ali G or Borat so far considering how everything he’s done post-Borat has sunk without trace (see also: Ricky Gervais with the David Brent film, Morgan Spurlock doing Super Size Me 2, Nia Vardalos doing My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2)

Because those characters (outside of the Ali G film) relied on people not knowing they were characters. Once they’ve reached a certain level of popularity they’re useless. And while he could do films / TV with them where it’s just scripted comedy, that’s obviously not his forte or where his interest lies (not that I’ve seen Grimsby to judge).
