Funny & Weird!
2 March 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A friend of mine tapes EVERYTHING and one night he told me Cloris Leachman had been in this weird funny twisted sitcom about Early America and he looked through his video collection and showed me the first three episodes. I cant believe this show isn't more well known - it was soooo funny and Leachman is great in it (as is the rest of the cast). The satire and dark humor reminded me of The Simpsons and the show where the whole town of Plymouth gets hooked on tobacco was laugh out loud funny. I guess it was on CBS one summer but man, this thing should have been given a chance. Now I'm determined to track down the last three! CBS - DVD release??
