| Show it in schools- NOW!
A stark and brutally funny exposition of life as seen, lived and joked about by Americans. Starting in the midst of a post world-war boom, race, politics, poverty and hypocrisy are given the black & white then full-colour treatment. The use of gentle rebuke and scathing polemics by what must rate as a roll call of Americas finest comic talent is never less than gob-smacking. From Bruce's put downs of segregation and the role of a celebrity wife to Tringle's lampooning the furore over gays in the armed forces. From Eisenhower through to Bush senior, it runs true and righteous as cock- and stitch- and cover- all take on meaningful suffixes.

If you like your humour to be provocative and insightful then this is a must: If you like your humour the far side of "The Simpsons" then this is for you. If you are still in a state of shock over the demise of 'Friends' then- But...Seriously
