  • Senator Tankerbell: Archetype of Buffoonery

    10
    If quality was esteemed above marketing and intelligence above cup size, this would have been the most popular show of all time. I certainly deem it as such. This episode in particular features some of the finest writing, production, and acting in all of its four seasons. It shows Mr. Show delivering what it does best: demented, involved, original concepts, beautifully crafted links, and caps off with a musical number that cuts the A.L.Webber pomp down to size. It also finds the show at its subversive best. It starts with a scathing commentary on Censorship in Television, cracking its whip on the V-chip and the Righteous Republican/Religious Right (the RRRR?) that instigates such legislation. Senator Tankerbell makes his first appearence here, though Bob was known to do a similar chatacter on the Ben Stiller Show, who would go on to reappear whenever the writing called for an archetype of buffoonery. Thank you Misters Cross and Odenkirk.
