  • One of those sketch comedy shows that appeals to the teenager in each of us.

    The comedy can be juvinille and down right odd at times on this show, but it very much stays in the general feel of other comedy shows of the time, namely resembling "In Living Color." Most bits are far from intellectual (other there are some very notable exceptions to that rule [The Last Supper skit with Louis]), but it always remains hilarious.

    Compared to some other comedy shows, like "Mr. Show," politics remain mostly apart from the skits, making it more appealing to a larger audience. The subject matter is relatively clean (it is geared towards teenagers, so there will be some sex and drug-use of course) and it makes for a fun time when you want to sit back and just laugh without having to think.

    Overall, an enjoyable show that really needs to be released on DVD. And quickly, before my tapes die on me!
