suck squared....
7 April 2003 | by (No VA) – See all my reviews

I felt a deep-down need to put a comment on this show. I'm doubtful that anyone will ever read it. But like a man putting a message in a bottle and tossing it out sea, I have hopes that someday this will be read.

Parody is a difficult thing to pull off. It starts with a respect, if not an appreciation, for the subject of the parody. You have to respect it enough to know it inside and out. Then you need an understanding of what part of your subject you want to lampoon. Finally, you cannot let the original take the weight of the joke. You have to write your own stuff. Otherwise your parody is simply derivative and flat. "The Rerun Show" is aimless and pointless. It's as if the writers and performers had seen one episode of the shows they are featuring and then decided to make every line into a dirty joke. It reminds me of friends in high school who insisted on quoting Monty Python as though each retelling were just as funny as the first time. They got an occassional laugh and assumed they were funny. I suspect that most of the people involved in this travesty hung out in similar crowds. I also suspect they weren't around when these shows were originally broadcast. They don't understand what made people watch in the first place, so they resort to the easiest joke. Unfortunately for them, dirty jokes get old fast. Each episode is like a child saying "poop" on a long car trip. The first time it's funny, but it gets old long before the child tires of saying it. In short: making a sucky parody of a sucky show only makes for double the suckiness.

One last note: In 1993, MTV used the original cast of the Brady Bunch to re-enact scenes from the movies nominated for Best Picture. The juxtaposition of the Brady family with serious movies was inspired. I have seen few things funnier than their take on A FEW GOOD MEN. It was respectful, even admiring, of the original and yet poked fun of it's self-importance. The lines were the same with the same recitation and inflection, but they seemed ludicrous coming from Greg and Mrs. Brady. It was everything parody should be. "The Rerun Show" is everything it shouldn't be.
