Crop And Save
The Downer Channel (2001)
comedy show of short movies about people being screwed
I loved this show. It was too bad they made so few episodes. It was the kind of humour you don't see much of these days, where sad and maddening things happen to people and they just have to take it on the chin. This is definitely comedy for the little guy. It wasn't so much sketch comedy as a collection of short movies. There were no recurring characters as far as I remember; perhaps they would have appeared over time. It reminded me somewhat of the Ben Stiller Show, in that both were quite short lived and quite sophisticated and full of promise that never got a chance to develop. I don't know if we'll ever see this on DVD and I've never seen it rerun. Too bad.
