An offbeat look at current events, often by dubbing over news video with farcical commentary.

Not A Seller On DVD? I Beg to Differ!
As I Fondly Remember the Outrageously Funny Satire From this Show,It's Criminal that HBO Hasn't Cashed in and released it on DVD! A great Selling Slogan Would be "It's time To Laugh (at Reagan) Again!",Even if you Voted for Reagan Back in the Day! The Previous Reviewer Probably Didn't Pay Attention to It at all,when the Series was on the Tube;I believe The Show's Release on DVD would Sell Very Well,and Bring Back the Memories of what Good Times the '80s were; This Show is just as funny as 'Saturday Night Live';So,I Appeal to You Sir:Who are You to Decide how such A Entertaining Show Would Do in this Day on DVD? I Say to HBO: Put It Out On DVD,And Bring Back The Laughs!
