The High Life--A forgotten gem !!
18 May 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have all the episodes on video because I just happened to record it in it's original run but there might be some unaired episodes.It was a brilliant show!! I am amazed it is so forgotten and that it was cancelled so quickly,especially by HBO!! It starred Mark Wilson and Robert Joy as Earl and Emmett, two guys just scamming their way thru the Fifties running a storage business in Pittsburgh,Pa. As well as being funny,it tackled McCarthyism, the Klu Klux Klan, and even the Davy Crockett craze when Earl & Emmett try to sell unlicensed Crockett hats. Filmed in glorious black and white to capture that Fifties sitcom feel,the series is truly a forgotten gem !!!! The show was made by Worldwide Pants which,of course, is David Letterman's company. The show was truly unique because even though it was about the Fifties,it was way ahead of it's time. Try to think of "The Honeymooners" with a much more satirical and shaper edge !! A DVD release is a must !!!!!
