Sabado Gigante has something for everyone: comedy skits, musical interludes, interviews, quiz games & the luscious Sissi. Helmed by the affable Don Francisco, SG is a throwback to the old American variety shows. But even America didn't have recurring characters such as El Santo the masked wrestler, a lion who drags off contestants during singing contests & of course, the beautiful Sissi. Entertaining, colorful & corny, SG makes for decent TV viewing. And I don't even speak Spanish. Did I happen to mention the gorgeous Sissi? In the words of Bob Hope, "Rrrrrrrrrrrrrr...!!"
