User Reviews

One of the best tv series of all time
18 March 1999 | by bun-2See all my reviews

This tv show featured the brilliant character acting of some of today's finest comedic actors. John Candy, in full make-up was Luciano Pavarotti, Curly Howard, or Alfred Hitchcock in various skits... and he created some brilliant characters of his own: Johnny LaRue, Yosh Schmenge, Gil Fisher, Bruno, and countless others. The show was an early launching ground for other comedic rockets from Harold Ramis, Martin Short, Catherine O'Hara, Eugene Levy, Rick Moranis and many others... a veritable Who's Who of today's filmed comedy. The ongoing characters created worlds of their own that were endlessly fascinating... and they also spoofed the classic tv shows. Imagine John Candy as an overgrown Beaver Cleaver! Forgettabouttitt. Scour your local tv listings for re-runs of this show, or find the tapes. This is tv comedy at its finest!
