Classic!
21 February 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was a unique show! I am glad that I taped some of the episodes back when it was on. Notably, Lisa Kudrow appeared in a number of sketches playing various characters!

The premise was that two critics were reviewing new and upcoming TV shows. Most of these were parodies of actual shows or other celebrity-oriented materials. My favorite segment was one called "Inside Debbie Dibson's Bedroom," a hilarious parody of 'teen queen" Debbie Gibson (who, by the way, I really like!). There were also parodies of game shows, aging stars trying to make comebacks, 60's reunion concerts, et al. There were also many mystery-laden sequences which were intentionally very hokey; and there were behind-the-scenes type vignettes, ranging from a couple who travels in a camper and never leaves it, to "interviews" with the "stars" of the parodied shows.
