Absolutely Hilarious, 24 June 2002
Author: YankeeGrey from Cantonment, Florida

I remember watching this show on HBO as a kid and I loved it. I was saddened when the show was canceled but can enjoy it again for I have it on tape. It was imaginative thought provoking and downright funny. Donald Gibb and Tony Longo as Dr. Death & Mad Dog (respectively) I feel carried the show and of course John Kassir as Zagreb was hilarious. A great show but not for everyone as it contained some adult themes and scenes.
