Dave Foley has his first special, and he's right about one thing- it sucks. He knows it sucks and it's suppose to suck, and that's all good, but there's just so much left to be desired. You'll watch it expecting a laugh but instead... nothing. Just a little bit of slapstick would even make it better: snow falling on Dave's head as he's trying to get back in, etc. Mind you, him falling out the window was pretty funny, and there's still a bit of small laughs in it, but no real big jokes. What he has as entertainment is good: Jann Arden's singing, Dave Thomas and Joe Flahtery doing impersonations which I guess fans of SCTV would enjoy but I found rather boring. Mike Myers didn't even seem to want to give eye contact. It seemed like he didn't even want to be there.
Actually, the only part which lived up to expectations was the part with Kevin McDonald, who is always hilarious anyway. That sequence presented the joke which was given throughout the show: people feeding themselves on artificial interaction by watching these specials (only they didn't even have to watch it.) I would recommend this show for that part alone. So unless Bowser and Blue's "Two Nuts Roasting Over an Open Fire" isn't on, this is good enough to spend the 45 mintues watching. It's also too short.
