I remember the show
20 July 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A kid at my high school told me about the show so i watched it several times. Nothing else like it at the time. Would be nice to watch it again as i do not remember much other than that i liked it. I tried to get some other friends to watch it but none did. Later on I found out an old friend used to watch it. The humor was quite a bit different than the usual TV comedy on the network stations. It was out there. I did not know I was watching early Chevy Chase until finding this spot on IMDb. Pretty hard to come up with the required ten lines for this comment when I can barely remember the show in the first place. Hope this will do.
