I stumbled onto this show. It was the one where Gerhardt gets hooked on coca and is kidnapped by militant rebels. I was fascinated, asking myself what the heck I was watching. I soon saw more and was floored.
I was none to surprised to then learn that Tom Stern was behind this show. That explained why it was so funny...well at least to a degree. He's Alex Winter's (ya know...Bill from Bill&Ted) college buddy. They had a great show called The Idiot Box back in the day on MTV and made a major motion picture called Freaked (also great) that got totally screwed over by their studio and was never really released properly.
The world needs more of his kind of humor. Too bad about 10 years ago good comedy (kind of like music) just went BYE-BYE! I'm thinking Get a Life and late 80's SNL. Lots of intelligent surreal humor back in the late 80's/early 90's. I blame Seinfeld (which I love, of course.) After him every sitcom had to be about four people sitting around their apartment. Thank goodness for Conan I guess.
This show is for smart people who like wacked out comedy. God bless you.
