John Olinda I'm getting so sick of seeing "John Oliver explains..." posts everywhere.

Adam Douglas It would be preferable if it was "[subject] explained" rather than using his irrelevant name in the title. Haven't seen his work so cannot comment on his competence.

Martijn His name is relevant only because he shares it with the TV show: Last Week Tonight with John Oliver. HBO officially calls the different show segments "John Oliver on [subject]". They never use the word explained though, as, of course, it all comes from the show's writers' perspectives.

Martijn Why? I think he is pretty good at what he does.

John Olinda It's not that he isn't good, it's just that I don't like seeing a trend toward "Here, I don't want to explain this, so watch this." But I'm also a history teacher, so I'm sure that colors my thinking a little bit.
