It has been awhile since i have hurt from laughing.
27 May 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I don't usually comment on things, and spend more time reading and seeing what others have to say, but I think Dave deserves more praise.

I just got season 2 on DVD and it has been nonstop laughter since I put it in. There were several times when I had to pause the show because I couldn't breathe.

I almost died when the grenade came rolling into the house in the skit that showed what would happen if Enron execs and similar were treated like true criminals.

It's bad that I like the show so much. Sometimes i bust out laughing at work and people think I am insane (which I probably am) On another note, I hope things can be worked out for season 3. If this is the end of the show, then I thank Dave for giving us what he has and I wish him the best.
