Quotes

Dan Patrick: [Intro] Deep in the ESPN Tape Library, the Worldwide Leader in Classic Sports launched a new series designed to take a new look at the old games. They called it "Cheap Seats, with Ron Parker." Parker, an anchor with attitude with helped thanklessly by tape librarians Randy and Jason. The show was slated to go all the way. But moments into the first episode, tragedy struck. With Ron on the DL, someone needed to step up. Like Gehrig for Pipp, or Brady for Bledsoe. Sitting two and three on the ...

The Best Show on Television
31 May 2005 | by (East St. Louis, IL) – See all my reviews

In a day where everyone is focused on special effects and cashing in on following popular trends, it is nice to see a comedy that focuses on one thing—being funny. Randy and Jason Sklar bring their form of off-brand humor and satirical comedy to a show that they were destined to be a part of.

Randy and Jason took the format made popular by Mystery Science Theatre 3000 to make fun of something we love even more than bad science fiction movies, and that's gimmick sporting events. The guys sit back in the "cheap seats" and rag on everything from the rodeos to bowling, poker to putt-putt golf, and they do it in a way that keeps us laughing with their slick wit and obscure references. I mean, where else can you expect to hear about Hannibal Lecter at a Spelling Bee or Rick Fox at a Cheerleading Competition?

The only thing holding this show back is its limited exposure. Being on ESPN Classic (which is usually only available by satellite or digital cable) certainly shrinks what would be a huge audience for such an enjoyable show like this one. However, Randy and Jason continue to be original and showcase their tremendous talents on such a great show that some would call vintage, Pam Minnick.
