Even as a High School student I knew this series was something special. I have no idea how many episodes they ran. The three (perhaps 4) I managed to catch featured, 1. Spaulding Gray, 2. Rosanna Arquette & David Byrne, 3. Steven Wright.
I would love to own these on DVD. Smart, funny, ironic, biting...as if Kurt Vonnegutt had written a TV show!
They ran on the local PBS station and as a result never had a regular time spot. I've tried searching for more information on the program but have turned up very little.
I'll try to write a few more details in regard to the individual episodes soon.
