Never been a huge Maron fan but I really enjoyed Thinky Pain. Made me want to give WTF another shot (rather than just pick and choose episodes now and then).

The Johnny Knoxville episode was great.

I was literally just listening to that one. I liked the stories of his dad's tire shop which was almost a proto-Jackass.

Other than Knoxville's obnoxious laugh, I enjoyed that episode so much more than I expected. He is a pretty great story teller (I think my favorite was the genealogy story).
He's this soulless bastard from Siberia. I once saw him shove Fred Savage's face in a toilet.

Yes a very engaging episode. How does one become Johnny Knoxville? I would have liked to hear the question "do you like getting hurt?" but beggars cannot be choosers!

The hot lips episode is great too.

Maron: "So, you were in his bed but you never slept with Marlon Brando?"

Hot Lips: "No I didn't. I wanted to be special. That's not a mistake I'll make in my next life!"

It sounded to me like the turning point was the day he decided to shoot himself in the chest point blank because he needed to make a living for his new baby!

The Phil Stutz and Artie Lange episodes are great, too.

The Yakov Smirnoff interview was truly amazing. MARON is on a tear!

I gave the Maron TV show another chance and binge watched the whole season last weekend - there's definitely some ups and downs, my favorite is his kid sidekick and of course Danny Trejo (who rarely speaks on screen, this must be his biggest speaking role of 3,245 roles?)

Still adjusting to life w/out Tom, it's not so great!

His sidekick is the best part of the show.

Yes, I loved this exchange from the Trejo episode:

Man, for a comedian, you have no sense of humor. Why don't you tell a joke?

     I don't really do jokes.

What do you do?

     Observational stuff. I try to connect with the audience.

Sounds hilarious, homes.

That episode was emblematic of Maron's worst guests: overly nostalgic, smarmy, and regret-free.
