This show is/was hilarious
21 November 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This show was not on for very long at all, but it was a terrific show. The two characters did reviews of fake TV Shows starring themselves. The one I remember best was "Heimlich; A Man and his Maneuver", in which Heimlich watches someone die from choking in a restaurant and exclaims "If only I had some type of maneuver!" He retires to his lab and forces his assistant to choke on candy while he tries a variety of maneuvers to save him.

I still laugh when I think about this show, it was a great blend of creative shows and the reviewers heartfelt comments. The two hosts play things so seriously. If this show ever comes out on DVD I would buy it in a heartbeat.
