A true comedy that never got the chance to fly.
16 March 2003 | by (Southern Boy) – See all my reviews

Charlie Hoover was the awarding accomplishment of Sam Kinison. After fighting addictions with drugs and alcohol, he redefined himself and put his life back in order. Due to his wild lifestyle it wasn't until 1991 that Kinison was finally able to get a network to back him in a show. Finally, after going the distance, Fox put Sam Kinison in Charlie Hoover. He played the deep inner voice of Tim Matheson's character Charlie, who was pushed around in life.

Kinison was portrayed as a three inch tall figment of Charlie's depressed and downtrodden psych. It was pure chemistry as Sam played the part to the letter. He was that inner voice screaming for bloody vengeance in a comedic way. Pushing Charlie to stand up for himself against his co-workers and especially his mother-in-law. The power of the series was cut short tragically when Sam Kinison was killed in an auto accident which many would call vehicular homicide. He gave so much to the comedy world, shaping the way stand up comedians perform uncensored.

This was a great show and I can only hope that it will be placed on DVD to be seen by the new generations who didn't grow up hearing Sam's distinctive scream.
