Brilliance.
8 November 2003 | by (Georgia,USA) – See all my reviews

I vividly remember this, though I was a mere pup of , well, about fifteen years old and had saved it on VHS for as long as I could. Dave Thomas, in a alternate universe, is still winning Emmys for this show, his performance as Jack Palance in a skit had me rolling on the floor. Why, oh why, do shows like this get cancelled, when garbage like "Hype" make it on the air?
