excellent show, and I miss it!
6 March 2004 | by (NYC, USA) – See all my reviews

This show was great, I would definitely buy this on DVD. Louis has

the best way of talking to various nutjobs and asking questions

without belittling them or trying to make them look foolish; he just

lets them do that on their own! He appears sincere and just out for

information, which I believe he is. It's kind of like those Daily Show

segments without the smarm. I have nothing more to add, but the

imdb wants me to write at least 10 lines, so here we go; this show

rules, it's so great, I love it, yahoo, woo! Yes! this show rules, it's so

great, I love it, yahoo, woo! Yes!this show rules, it's so great, I love

it, yahoo, woo! Yes! Bring this back, Bravo!
