    [A] rip-roaring, hilarious half-hour show... It ranks with HBO's "The Larry Sanders Show" as the creamy class of the new season's comedy series.

    Its sharp, wily wit will be immediately appreciable. Here is a comedy construct that hits like "The Brothers Karamazov" and plays like the brothers Marx. [25 Sep 1992]

    It's drastically different from anything I've ever seen on TV: wildly funny, scathingly sardonic and brilliantly executed. [25 Sep 1992]

    Stiller is capable of turning out a dead-on TV or movie parody, like his takeoff on Cape Fear, with a grownup Eddie Munster as the De Niro-esque psycho. But he rarely settles for the frisson of a good impersonation; his sketches usually give the satiric knife an extra twist or two.

    The best new series that few people in America are likely to watch. ... Stiller and his small cast of writer-players ... don't make fun of one thing at a time: They combine their subjects, creating rich layers of ridicule.
