  • Mr Show has to be one of the wittiest, most original sketch comedy shows ever made. Unpredictable sketches and talented comics make up this comedic masterpiece

    My favorite comedy program, maybe even my favorite television program. Mr. Show stars two comedians, Bob Odenkirk and David Cross, who write and star in most of the sketches. Not only are most of the sketches very original (The Third Wheel), witty (The Four Voices), and unpredictable (Titannica), but you cannot help but notice how great the chemistry between Bob and David are. They play off each other very well, when they are themselves, Ronnie and Terry, Three Times One Minus One, Nostradamus and Alexis, etc. There is a terrific supporting cast which includes, then-future married voice actors Tom Kenny and Jill Talley, John Ennis, Brian Posehn, Paul Thompkins, Jay Johnson, and a few appearances by Jack Black. My main complaint is this show jumps the shark at the fourth season. While there are a few good scenes (Rudy will Await your Foundation, Toenapper) the show loses its witty HBO-ish feel and becomes absolutely TERRIBLE during the last two episodes. But the first 3 seasons are brilliant enough for this to be absolutely worth the watch! Highly Recommended!
