Customer Reviews

this show is great

that character who gave this show one star and said this is for old people is a fool. this show is great, i am 28 so maybe this person is 15 and then i can see why they dont like it. however, i would reccommend the later seasons of this show but since they aren't available get the best of. one of my favorite shows of all time. i feel like if this show was on hbo now it would have been huge but hbo wasn't what it is now back in the mid nineties. if a seinfeld episode is too dated for you then this show might be like the 15 year old says. so you can go get your jonas brothers movie and watch that with your rings, or watch some quality stuff.

One of the all-time best

The series is one of the best in television history with a "warts-and-all" look behind the scenes at a second-rate Tonight Show competitor, The Larry Sanders Show, with Garry Shandling in the lead. Any fan of Shandling should watch this, as he is at his most brilliant: edgy, funny, nervous, depressed, needy. Rip Torn and Jeffrey Tambor are wonderful, unforgettable co-stars. (And to me, the series gets even better after the first season.)

Multidimensional and Hilarious

TV has to smack people in the face nowadays to be recognized as "great". We're mired in a world of crap like "American Idol" and reality TV. People have lost their appreciation for TRUE ART, which this show certainly was. Shandling created some of the most grating, obnoxious, self-centered, and hilarious characters in the backstage of a TV "show within a show" while also allowing true human emotion to show through in contrast. The casting is brilliant, the guest starts are brilliant, this was truly a one-of-a-kind edgy comedy from beginning to end. The highs and lows are engaging and heartwarming, and you feel the angst of the players. It's not just another comedy. It's not just a one-trick pony like Seinfeld. Shandling had the class and good taste to end this show as it peaked. This and the original Gary Shandling show were Gary at his best. Rip Torn has GREAT comedic timing, and showed a wide range of acting ability on this show. This is a "Must Watch" for anyone who takes their TV seriously.
