  • Buck Off

    8.5
    Contains two classics, the Harley's Bristol Cream spoof and the Life After Death segment (which was done so marvelously realistically that I'm not even sure a lot of people realized it was a joke). The opening bit, complete with Buck Off signs, was also quite funny. The toad thing really didn't go anywhere, but the Todd & Lisa segment was very good, as was the Talking to Your Grandparents sendup. Then there was Tom Petty doing an energetic version of "Refugee" (and singing like a siren ring, as always).moreless
