Your Opinions and Comments

10 / 10
This was the funniest series from the states in the nineties, besides Seinfeld. The BBC in the UK strategically tried to make it unwatchable by contstantly changing its viewing schedule; however the hardcore few hundred thousand in the UK that followed it hung in there, filthy letters to moronic BBC schedulers aside. These are some very good episodes, my favourite all time being Hanks Sex Tapes. It is quite simply one of the funniest things ever shown. Characters and plot are faultless; the roster of A-List Hollywood guests littered with cool, savvy, above ave. IQ types, who were eager to be associated with such comic genius throughout its 6 series. The morons didn`t get Larry, but then they find Shakespeare boring, Big Brother sexy, and Genius `wierd`.
