    I was a huge fan of Mr. Show, I think it's probably the best sketch comedy show ever created. I thought W/ Bob and David was very good; usually reunion shows seem like a good idea in theory and then they don't turn out very well, but I was happy with the new sketches. I didn't feel like they had lost their edge with age or anything like that. It's only 4 episodes, one of which Netflix has dropped, so it's not much, but it was nice to have them back.

    This show is hilarious and the on going theme from the start and end of each episode is priceless. You just don't get things like this anymore. It's a tragedy that Netflix has decided to pull the one of the best episodes (3) from the stream. If something like Tropic Thunder gets the pass but the third 3rd episode does not makes no sense what so ever. Censorship like this is how you lose subscribers and produce weaker content.

    Bob Odenkirk and David Cross may not be quite as ruthless in how they satirize their numerous targets as they were during their previous sketch comedy show, Mr. Show, but they certainly succeed in remaining relevant, twenty years after Mr. Show began. The familiar cast is still much on point, even with some contemporary changes in style of humour, and W/ Bob & David is an excellent introduction to the lovingly destructive nature of Odenkirk and Cross. Having watched Mr. Show first, where misses were near non-existent, I was disappointed by the drop in consistency. Sometimes, the writing team goes too easy, in favour of playing for a more contemporary audience. For newcomers, that may not be noticeable. My favourite sketch is Rooms! The Musical, from its preceding sketch conception, through the sketch itself of three guys conceiving a musical about singing rooms of a house, and into the following sketch that reprises running gags of the episode. That, among the many other successful sketches of the show, are so hilariously pointed that, despite the drop in consistency, I ached for more than four episodes.

    Great, funny show. The pre-taped video bits are better than the live studio performances (obviously), but still funny. The Salesmen bit was the best of the entire season. The 4 episodes season leaves you wanting more. The "making of" episode provides a good insight to the creative process.

    In the decade-and-a-half since the conclusion of the HBO sketch series Mr. Show, hosts Bob Odenkirk and David Cross have gone from alt-comedy heroes to rather recognizable TV stars. Still, this reunion series for them has hardly lost any of the off-kilter humor, and it's retained it's zany-yet-dark edge and almost the entire cast (guess Sarah Silverman was too famous to show up). Don't expect anything too different from the previous series (asides from the contemporary filmmaking), but name two other comedians in their 50s that are putting out material that's just as strong as their hey-day. Also, it's fairly miraculous that Bob and David were able to take enough time out of their busy schedules to give us even an abbreviated season.

    Bob Odenkirk and David Cross are always fun to see together, but I was expecting a bit more than what I got out of season 1.

    lots of things just fall flat or dont even get off the ground. there are a few laughs (very scattered) and sadly not carrying the length of any sketch. prob the saddest bit is there are a few that would have worked if filmed instead of performed live (cops, first part of dry cleaner, etc)
