The Great One (for a reason)
4 September 2003 | by aciolinoSee all my reviews

There is nothing like it on television today. There couldn't be. This show, these types of shows were about something that's a lost art: entertainment. And this is entertainment at it's best.

For those who are too young to remember Gleason's art was the art of vaudeville, where comedy and great comic acting depended more on characterization, timing, body movement, facial expressions, as opposed to clever dialogue or cutting edge subject. And Gleason was the master of this craft, and many of these skits are Gleason at his peak.

It is a lost form and if you can see it, do.
