  • Brilliant setup to a brilliant show.

    This show is bar-none the best comedy on television in the past 10 years. The series\\\'s most enduring characteristic is it\\\'s endless watchability, which is a direct result of its peerless creative writing. Nowhere else on television can you find so many allusions, double meanings, and hidden references as you can on this show. The DVD set should come with cliff notes so you can pick up on all the hidden meanings and themes that appear in later shows, but I for one am glad that it doesn\\\'t, because finding new references upon each repeated viewing greatly enhances my enjoyment, as well as my appreciation for the talent, dedication, and outright creative genius of the shows writes.
