TV is a sales treatment to Fox TV network for a new Television series to be written by Saturday Night Live's Michael O'Donoghue and directed by Mr. Bill's creator Walter Williams. If you are a fan of 1970's SNL, Kentucky Fried Movie, and Airplane type humor, you will like this a lot. The 13 minute pilot is composed of very short and very rapidly paced Mad magazine like parodies of TV shows, TV ads & PSA's, news items, and horror movies. Some of the show seems dated but if you are a fan you will enjoy this. (Now available for viewing at You Tube from the account of Walter Williams.) Stop here if you want to avoid spoilers. Here are some examples of the type of comedy found in TV. Coma is a cop show starring a comatose detective. My favorite is the Time-Life book series "Meaningless Events & Insignificant Events." Least favorite is another fake ad for Old Goat Urine Beer. Its OK if you do not like one bit, the pace is so quick you will see a few skits that will make you smile, maybe even laugh out loud. I did.
