What happened?!!?
16 January 2003 | by bobbyknightmareSee all my reviews

I don't get it to this day. One week, I'm watching a show doing a brilliant parody of those old "lost jungle goddess" films in flawless Abbott and Costello style, the next week, it's gone.

Any show with Rob Reiner directing and Christopher Guest and Joe Flaherty writing should be the biggest thing on television. The episodes I saw were sure funny enough to compete with anything I ever saw. Sadly, it's been reduced to a quick mention in Rob Reiner's resume, which is sad because I could tell that Rob really loved this one.

Any chance there's a video of this floating around somewhere?
