  • The transit strike remote was great, Jim Carrey was slightly annoying, and Isaac Hayes gave a spectacular performance with the band.

    The episode featured Conan on a remote driving New Yorkers around in a van. It was his way of helping with the 2005 transit strike. Using a megaphone to communicate with riders in the back seat was classic Conan humor.

    Jim Carrey was the main guest, and he was a little annoying. I think I only prefer to see him in his movies, where at least he has a semblance of a character to play. In this episode, he came off as trying to hard. I only liked when he was playing King Kong on curtain's Empire State Building behind Conan's desk.

    Isaac Hayes took the show home with a great performance with his band and the Max Weinberg Seven. You could tell that everyone up on the stage was having a lot of fun.
