Low-key but wickedly hilarious satire
29 June 2002 | by (Irving, TX) – See all my reviews

Our local public TV station showed this, though a change of title was necessary ("Frontline" is the title of a very serious investigative/documentary series produced by PBS). It didn't attract a lot of attention (and wasn't heavily promoted), but for those who caught it, many laughs were to be had. The satire was sharp and very funny, but perhaps the most surprising aspect of the show was that just about every character, from the pompously moronic host through the crew of pranksters to the earnest producer (and the Machiavellian Exec producers) managed to remain largely sympathetic. If this makes its way around again, I encourage all to watch it.
