Episode 65: Tom Green/David Gray (Nov. 18, 2000)

ELike a fun-house mirror version of the Charles Grodin show, it's the fascinating, unholy mess that is Tom Green/David Gray! We've somehow wrangled Justin Hart of Telehell to join us in unraveling the screaming chaos that is this episode. Is there a method to it's madness or is it all just a trainwreck? The answer may not exist.

Join us as we explore an episode that's less comedy show and more living funeral, with a healthy dose of ethnic stereotypes for good measure!

Episode 62: Kate Hudson/Radiohead (Oct. 14, 2000)

EFresh off Almost Famous, Kate Hudson stops by the show to continue the family tradition of sketch comedy. She's joined by this little underground band called Radiohead. I'm sure you've never heard of them but they're pretty cool. We also learn about the waxing habits of old men in my neighborhood!

Off Week 23: Wieners (2008)

EReleased in 2008 (but filmed in 2004? 2000? 1998?), Wieners stars SNL alums Kenan Thompson and Darrell Hammond in a gross-out road trip film that has a surprisingly impressive cast list and more than a few decent laughs in it.

Off Week 22: Neighbors (1981)

EThis week, we do battle with one of the most confounding motion pictures we've seen in quite some time: Neighbors from 1981. Featuring Dan Aykroyd and John Belushi playing against type and directed by John G. Avildsen of Rocky and Karate Kid fame, Neighbors is a dark comedy that ALMOST comes together...but mostly serves to destroy our brains.

Off Week 21: The ABC Pilot Version Of Bizarre (with Richard Dawson!)

EWith it's mix of vulgar humor, topless ladies and Bob Einstein's Super Dave character, Bizarre was an early hit for Showtime, landing six seasons and even a spin-off show. It's a fascinating document of early cable TV sketch comedy. But...we're not watching that today. No, we've decided to go back to see what the show looked like when it was being potentially produced for ABC, with host Richard Dawson in place of John Byner. Mistakes might have been made.
