It's clever how he's gone full slaphead to avoid any fears of being recognised. having become more famous from the series 1 days.

Very sad about Hannibal leaving. Andre seemed gutted about it in an interview I read. Still, lots of great stuff. The 'Fart Splosion' prank was hilarious.

This one?

Quote from:  Vanity Fair on October 22, 2020
When Andre told Buress his plan for season five, though, Buress declined to return to the series. “He was like, ‘I don’t know, man. We’ve been doing it for a while. I’m down to keep collaborating, I just don’t wanna do the show anymore,’” Andre says. “I was heartbroken. Devastated…. The more I tried to talk him into it, the more I could tell he was pushing away.” (Buress’s rep declined to comment.)


Andre did, at least, convince Buress to quit the series on camera, so fans wouldn’t think the two of them had had a falling out. “He’s evolved and become very, very, very successful,” Andre says, zen about Buress’s exit. “I’m proud of him, so I totally get it.”

Oddly I preferred the pranks to the studio based interviews this time around, and it always used to be the opposite. Still, it was a fun watch, but it's a format which probably needs to come to an end with this fifth season as it's the studio based elements are running out of steam.

I've been feeling like that for a while. I think the studio segments peaked in the first two seasons, when eric seemed more out of it and hannibal was the straight man. I don't think they ever topped this

That's the one! I was too lazy to link it.

This week's prank with the news reporter was one of his best, got so close to being attacked but remained in character the whole time https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SDEUMVfu7Cg

"Use that anger!"

Omarion was a great value guest as well https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qv8qR1jOkB4

I'm hoping Lakeith Stanfield sticks around for a few more episodes, or permanantly would suit me. He seemed to revel in the mischief without getting in the way, similar to Hannibal but bringing a refreshing energy. Loved seeing New York on there too, she's always great.

I love how committed he is, especially how much work he puts into his look every series.

Hannibal comes across as very self serious in his reasoning for not carrying on with the show. Do people think the show's premise gets funnier the older Eric gets, or is it nearing its longevity for you?

I  was feeling that some of the spark was gone this season, interviews seemed more tired and safe

Seem to be in the minority tho -maybe I'M just getting lamer

I think I seen something about Andre saying he planned the show to run and run. Maybe he was joking or it might have been a pre-Hannibal leaving mindset. I agree about the interviews going off the boil this season. Which is a shame as I think they've been consistently excellent throughout the show's run. Season 4 was still doing amazing interviews like this and this so hopefully S5 gets back on track with them once he finds a new dynamic without Hannibal.

The Weird Al bit at the end of the last episode I watched was incredible
