At the end of each episode's credits under "Special Thanks," there is at least one random name that had nothing to do with the show. This is pointed out by David Cross in the DVD commentary for the first episode. See more »
A little show I like to call really good, really nice.
I had HBO for many years, and was able to watch it at will (generally). Mr. Show came on one time, and I laughed at it because it was damned funny. Then I watched it again, this time on purpose. It was even funnier. Bob and Dave, even though I confused their names with their faces, are so original and are such good actors, that their first-rate satire and jokes come off as smoothly as when a composer is able to play all of his instruments at the same time. It's fair to compare this show to Monty Python, because the entire genre is borrowed from those chaps, but also because it is almost as creatively done. The State on MTV also came close to Monthy Python and rivals Mr. Show for creativity. Mr. Show has curses in it, so right away, thats good too.
