"A very nice TV show"
7 May 2005 | by (Illinois) – See all my reviews

As a kid growing up in South Bend, IN. one of my favorite TV shows was "Beyond Our Control". It was billed as a "TV show about TV" and the most interesting thing was that it was written, produced, performed and edited by high school kids. It was mostly skits of parodies about TV.

I was pleased to find that the former cast members have set up a web site (www.beyondourcontrol.org)where you can now order DVDs of some of there better skits. I just finished watching three that I have ordered and found that the humor is still as fresh as when it was written almost 30 years ago.

If you grew up around the South Bend area I recommend ordering a disk or two for a nice bit of nostalgia. As you watch it keep in mind that the majority of the show's run pre-dates, Saturday Night Live, MTV and cable.
