Mr. Show with Bob and David is a very funny sketch show. It's like a modern-day American "Monty Python". With its outlandish and random situations thrown into a state of controlled chaos, this show is consistently hilarious.
The sketches are usually linked, much in the spirit of Monty Python. Rarely is there a slow or unfunny moment. Bob Oedenkirk and David Cross are great, and they certainly deserved a much longer run.
Unfortunately, it loses some edge in its edited version. Comedy Central and TBS lack the freedom to show Mr. Show in its full brilliance. If you can, watch it on HBO or DVD.
