All Critics (9) | Top Critics (3)

This inspired, inventive show combines the freewheeling creativity of Monty Python's Flying Circus with cabaret theater, and each episode swirls around an ingenious thematic thread that just barely connects things together by the end...

While Saturday Night Live panders to a lowest common denominator, Mr. Show gave the audience more credit. Perhaps more importantly, it never worried if the audience kept up.

Although celebrated for its absurd point of view, Mr. Show didn't shy away from the real world, often tearing into the inequalities of society and the increasing domination of corporate America.

Each show has a natural fluidity, with each sketch bleeding into the next. It's sort of like a comedy bean-salad stream of consciousness.

One of the greatest pieces of television ever assembled, and a show easily worthy of being considered among the best comedy programs of all time.

So consistently bizarre that I sometimes felt a bit lightheaded while watching it - though it might have just been a side effect of David Cross' falsetto voice.
