| Very Clever Show . Unfortunately Clever does not equal success.
I remember being one the few people to watch this show and thinking how different and clever it was. It was one of those shows that did not fit into one particular television category or genre. It had elements that were similar to "This Is Spinal Tap" which was also directed by Rob Reiner.

Reiner would narrate each episode about a fictional Laurel-and-Hardy-esquire comedy act from the golden age of television whose archive footage was lost and recently found. All episodes were in black and white and were made to look exactly like the 1920s. Like early television, episodes had little dialog and were thin on plots.

If you enjoyed watching the "Three Stooge" or "Abbott & Costello", this was great show for you. Unfortunately, CBS was not too high on this show and aired it in the middle of the summer. Despite having some recognizable names attached to it (Reiner, Christopher Guest, Michael McKean, Kevin Pollack), the network did little to promote the show. Predictably, no one really watched. Even had it aired in the fall, it is doubtful that it would have found an audience as viewers at the time were into younger shows like "Beverly Hills 90210" and have shown that they will not watch nostalgic shows from before like 1960 (ie."Brooklyn Bridge","Clubhouse", "I'll Fly Away").
