Opening film is a big CG composite of famous films through out history. It's a lot like what they do for the NBA Finals... also on ABC, incidentally. Peter Jackson's King Kong punching Roland and Emmerich's Godzilla was pretty cool.
And here's Jonny with writers' strike reference #1.
Danny Day Lewis has a big hoop earing. That's interesting.
Jon's doing pretty good so far, but Billy's songs were always great.
Jon just made a joke about Anton Chigurh to Javier. Tommy Lee Jones' face looked like it was made out of granite.
