  • Maybe the most brilliant pure comedy show ever

    10
    "SCTV" in all its manifestations was the most creative, intelligent, and hilarious pure comedy show (as opposed to sitcom) that has ever been on American television, with the possible exception of "Monty Python's Flying Circus." The fact that both these shows originated in other countries besides the U.S. should remind us that we're not the best in everything. Only on "SCTV" would you see two or three things being parodied at the same time, as in the merging of "The Andy Griffith Show" with Merv Griffin to produce "The Merv Griffin Show." Or Pauline Kael being "blowed up real good" on the "Farm Film Report." And characters like the McKenzie Brothers, Guy Caballero, Johnny LaRue, and Edith Prickley--well, I could go on and on, but suffice to say this was comedy at its most complex and funniest, with a collection of writer/comedians that was unsurpassed.
