Storyline

Christy and Ignatiy introduce a 1980 episode of "Sneak Previews" titled "Mel Brooks or Woody Allen?" in which Gene Siskel and Roger Ebert debate which filmmaker is funnier, with Gene choosing Allen and Roger choosing Brooks. Each of the critics respects the other's choice, but Gene believes that Brooks's string of film genre parodies has been tapped out, and Roger is dissatisfied with Allen's shift toward more serious films. Afterwards, Christy and Ignatiy note that this discussion would be unlikely to arise today, given that Allen has shifted toward making dramas and Brooks has not directed a film in 16 years.
