, like when Noory pontificates about his personal religious beliefs in God or about the righteousness of his unforgiving nature toward a wrongdoer, in the middle of an interview, many times of which are out of place to begin with. They make things squirmy
in the seat when they do that, and they momentarily light up a WTF? bulb in the mind.
