Small Shots caught my attention while I was attending film school in Chicago. It used to air after Star Trek on TNN. Chris and Matt travel across country, going to small towns casting the locals for short movie spoofs. Each week Cox and Sloan would arrive in a new town, recruiting "actors" with a casting session that never failed to provide laughs. Basically the show makes fun of reality TV shows, then makes fun of movies... and pretty much rips on the entire American pop culture with wit and cleverness. Throughout the show, their are numerous obstacles and challenges that pose one threat after another to the production of the short film. The conflicts were usually absurd and hilarious. The pay off is watching the short film at the end of the episode. I remember the one entitled "Jurassic Dog" being so dumb. This show was great. I hope it gets released to DVD one day.
