User Reviews

Clever, seemingly big-budget - shot on film
29 September 2000 | by Suzie TrueSee all my reviews

I like the shot-on-film look, especially for many of their sketches which are "realistic." They seem to shoot in a variety of locations, and the actors are quite versatile. Also note that this is not "British humor", which I don't always get. I just caught this on Bravo (9/29/00).
