Movie Reviews

Still Waiting For The YSOS Complete Seasons
Edmond Gauthier | USA | 12/14/2004
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Your Show Of Shows was a ground-breaking series, although what's left of it is admittedly in kinescope-type quality rather than good I Love Lucy film quality. But still, unless you can get these current releases at a great discount, I'll recommend that everyone wait until YSOS finally comes out on Complete Seasons DVDs.

That is because when it comes to a giant of comedy like the mighty Caesar, verily it shall be worth thy wait!

Before Saturday Night Live there was Your Show of Shows
picardfan007 | USA | 08/25/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This has to be what must have inspired Saturday Night Live. Only with this one the episodes are funnier. Even if you eliminate the time factor here...this show was produced in the fifties..it's still holds up as a great show that's actually funny to watch the second time around. That was the great thing about Sid Ceasar...if you notice his samurai skits were stolen from none other than John Belusi of Saturday Night Live. If you get the chance to see any of these classics watch Sid's impression of the japanese samuri and Belusi's...this is where he got his inspiration...."
A "must own" for fans who have already purchased the 1st co
H. A Tervo | 09/18/2005
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Not as uproariously funny as the 1st collection of 18 legendary episodes, but still far above most anything seen that is called comedy on television today. Here is a real master in the mold of Chaplain, Keating and, yes, the Marx Brothers."
Laugh, Laugh, Laugh
Caroline J. Aronica | Brooklyn NY | 06/07/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"It was the best of times for television. If ever life seems unfair this collection will keep you laughing for a long time. Give this collection to anyone young or old and they will thank you forever."
