30 April 2002 | t.mike
Sketch comedy show with potential.
This is a failed pilot, but not a bad early outing for Reiner, Guest, et al. Reiner is terrific in a brilliant sketch where he plays Hitler on trial. The show also features an early performance of Spinal Tap. There are some dead moments where they dress is gratuitous drag and basically rip off the so-called "pepperpot" characters from Monty Python. I guess with Saturday Night Live and SCTV, network tv figured they didn't need another sketch show.
