Movie Reviews

Simply the Best
Vampire Truth | Los Angeles, CA United States | 07/30/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The stated objective of Bob Odenkirk and David Cross in making "Mr. Show" was to give America its own Monty Python's Flying Circus. They failed in this, because THEIR SHOW WAS BETTER THAN MONTY PYTHON. They were on cable, so they had similarly crummy resources, but they also had the luxury of time (they didn't have to grind out an episode every six days like the Pythons did).

Season Four of "Mr. Show" is the year it all came together, but seasons one two and three had their moments too. You could do a lot worse than buying up all three "Mr. Show" DVD sets, especially if you're a fan of absurdist comedy, done with wit, intelligence, and a healthy crudity too. There is no better sketch comedy show ever, it's as simple as that."
Best of Mr. Show

"I've probably watched every episode of Mr. Show at least 5 times, and I gotta say, Season 4 was by far the best. The sketches got more outlandish and funnier as the seasons went on, and some of the stuff in the fourth season had shocked me as much as it made me laugh. I also think the transitions between scenes got much more clever and crisper as the seasons progressed, and by season 4 they were incredible. The episode with the "Description of the lion's roar" is particularly great. I've been itching for this to come out since I first heard about Mr. Show being released on DVD.Clearly explaining why this season was funnier than the rest is about as difficult as describing the comedy of Mr. Show to the uninitiated, so I'm going to resist trying. I'll post a more detailed review once it's out, but I'm gonna be eagerly awaiting my copy.A note of caution, though: the humor in this season is decidedly darker than in seasons 1 through 3, and certain sketches may be a little disturbing to some viewers."

"Before Season 4 came out, I had never watched Mr. Show. I saw commercials for it and everything, but wasn't interested. So, on one of those "lonely" nights, I started watching it. I must say I was very impressed! I was on the floor rolling it was so funny. The "Taint" sketch blew my mind! The "Civil War re-enactment" was just like you would see on the History channel. I recorded the rest of the episodes, only to find out it was the last season produced. I bought the first 3 seasons when they came out on DVD, but nothing touches Season 4 in my mind. All of the sketches had me in stitches. The way the sketches flow into each other, and feed off one another, unbelievable! I know that there are those people out there that don't "get it" (like one of my ex-girlfriends)and think that everything should be P.C. Whatever. They probably think "Sex and the City" is funny, which isn't to me, but then again I have a sick mind, so scratch that.
I'm just pleased as punch that Season 4 is finally coming out on DVD.
Squash is on sale."

"Good lord, there are some great things in life, but I don't know if anything else is this great. I've only seen about six or seven of the fourth season episodes, but based on what I've seen, I'd have to agree with others here that this season stands atop Mr. Show mountain as the finest they produced. I feel like I've been waiting an eternity for this set to arrive, so another month and a half isn't going kill me, I suppose.

Mr. Show is phenomenal comedy, but it's really so much more - a way of life, a way of looking at the world, perhaps. I've never been witness to smarter comedy, where the material often actually gets funnier after repeated viewing.

Mr. Show is the true way!"
