I bought the VHS tape
25 October 2005 | by (Western NY) – See all my reviews

I had seen this when it first aired on Cinemax and I loved it, so I eventually taped it off the TV. I watched it so many times and showed it to so many friends that I eventually wore the tape out! Then when one of my local video rental stores was selling off some overstock, I was able to purchase this for $3.00, used! Well I still have that tape and I watch it a few times a year when I need a break. I think it is the funniest thing Paul Shaffer has done outside of the Letterman Show. The dark humour and biting wit was way ahead of its time back then. If you ever get a chance to see this, please do. I like it more each time I watch it. The jokes, the characters and the music are all effing great! Watch it with friends and find out who played Donna. She looks so familiar...
