'Infrastructure is not sexy' - John Oliver talks about infrastructure maintenance

Oliver brings forth a tonne of scary details that makes us laugh because of the sheer stupidity of the situation.

Like every episode of 'Last Week Tonight', in this episode too, we see John Oliver take a topic, dig out obscure statistics and mock the system. It is the best possible combination of humour and information.

Infrastructure is something that is of such a level of importance that no one thinks of paying any attention to it crumbling state of affairs. The politicians agree that it is in fact 'not very sexy'.

As is usual, John Oliver brings forth a tonne of scary details and facts that makes us laugh because of the sheer stupidity of the situation. The episode ends with a fake trailer for a movie called 'Infrastructure' that has an ensemble star-cast. Edward Norton, Josh Lucas and Steve Buscemi form the A-Team of infrastructure maintainace and prevent anything remotely dramatic from taking place.

We definitely need a show like this in India.
