Awesome show...
Somehow, this show made it on the air for about six episodes. Written and directed by Alex Winter/ Tom Stern, this show was wild, subversive humor at its best. Featuring the MTV contest, "Win a chance to sacrifice your daughter to GWAR!", that ought to be an indication as to the type of humor on the show. Also, this was back when shows on MTV HAD to be music orientated (anyone else remember this?), so the show was played around the popular music videos of the day. This led to the running gag of many of the characters saying to Alex, "Just play the damn videos!" Hopefully this show will see the light of day on DVD, I know there is a petition for those of you who care...

So, let's all take a moment of silence and fondly remember Eddie the Flying Gimp, Lockjaw, Willard Schrek, the Burrowing Bishop, and that new show "Who's a Total Idiot?" starring Tony Danza!
