Not to be forgotten...
25 February 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It is a such a pleasure to see that others remember this show. Dave Thomas' show was one of those magic moments in television, that was unfortunately to good to stay on the air. I guess the world wasn't ready for someone brilliant enough to turn Max Von Sydow into a barber. Mot every man can bring us good Max Von Sydow humor. With all of the shows headed by comedians that have come and gone this was one of the best. From SCTV to Strange Brew Dave Thomas has and still does give us something to laugh at. In this day and age isn't that what we really need? Would love to see this on DVD, especially with never before aired episodes.
