Awesome!!, 16 September 2005
Author: AllisonLVenezio from Jersey shore, USA

This special was supposed to be a lead-in to the new millennium, who better to bring HBO into the year 2000 than Dennis Miller, one of HBO's most popular stars of the time (and likely still is).

This wasn't a conventional stand-up routine, as I was expecting. Rather, it was an hour-long "Dennis Miller Live"...set over 1000 years. Viewers get to watch Miller perform his show in different years, ranting on topics of the period, like, for example, the Bubonic Plague. Miller's guest each time is Norm MacDonald, also clad in period clothes. Miller starts the show in the present (1999), and the show goes from there. He does his current events, his rant, and his guest. I don't remember if he did the Big Screen (or some variation of it).

This was a really funny show, and Dennis Miller does a great job. His sarcastic wit and giggle were what made me laugh. He was the bright spot of the show (for more obvious reasons). The use of Norm MacDonald wasn't necessary--Dana Carvey would have been of much better use. MacDonald is funny, but one tends to get tired of him after awhile. You can only go so far saying "uhhh" a lot. I know not everyone would agree, but they could have done without him.

I really liked this special, as it was funny and insightful. I highly recommend seeing it if you can find it. I trashed my tape of this, unknowingly, and I'm still crushed. Eventually this one will have to be released on DVD.

Of course, that's just my opinion, and I could be wrong.
