We finally got a chance to watch this last night and we loved it, but I have to agree with all the ripping on Hurly.   It was really a let down and I thought pretty weak.  There's so much other things there to work with why go for something that was so below the riffer's talent level?  I can see maybe one or two (I ate my keys), but that was all we heard when Hurly was on screen, and sometimes even when he wasn't there.  These times were honestly the only times we were all silent and not laughing.  I would love to see them do more LOST, but lose the fat jokes, it's just not funny and a weak attempt at filling time.

Speaking as a really fat guy myself I found all of their jokes to be very funny.  If they were pulling punches in other areas we'd have a gripe but they're taking shots at everyone and everything.  To me, it would be more insulting (even patronizing) if they stayed away from fat jokes.

But, if you watch Lost, Sawyer makes fat jokes all the time in the show.

Yes, yes, we should love all humans no matter their girth or lack of girth, but a joke is just a joke.
Plus, Hurley is not sexy.  It's a fact.  Nor is he in healthy physical shape.
