A very funny collection of Mr. Show sketches.
12 August 2005 | by (Columbia, MO) – See all my reviews

This is basically a clip show of great sketches from the 3rd Season of Mr. Show, which was one of the best (Which sounds strange, because the show only lasted 4 seasons and all of the seasons were amazing) Anyways, the plot for the Incredible, Fantastical News Report looks like a newscast from the 70's/80's with horrible (yet hilarious) voice dubbing. However at the end of this special, it goes to the Editorial, where all of a sudden during where the newscaster is speaking, Bob and David walk in, and not long after, so does the rest of the newscrew. It really blows your mind when you see how well of a job they did on the fake newscast, because it really looked like it was a real newscast.

It was very funny and extremely well done. 10/10
