There is a big difference between a good concept (ie Ronnie Dobbs in the studio) and a good sketch... It just was too long and soft.

Hey, man, you're entitled to your opinion.

And, yes, I know the difference between a good concept and a good sketch, and Ronnie Dobbs in the studio is NOT a weak sketch.

Bob Odenkirk's lounge singer...what's his name....that was pretty weak.
those are 2 of my favorite sketches.

i can understand not liking Mom and Pop Porno Shop but, the Larry Black sketch is gold. if nothing else, you have to love it for the fact that at the beginning he goes "this one's for the ladies. fellas, take it outside....ok, i guess theyre gonna stay. i'll pretend youre not here" and immediately proceeds to sing directly to a man in the front row. like the old black lady who loves chicken says, GOTTA LOVE IT.

Of course, Bob himself didn't think the Larry Black sketch came off that well, if the Season One commentary is to believed, right?

I was never all that crazy about the "Third Wheel" sketch (probably worked better on stage), and the writers' conversation that followed it was just DEADLY. In fact, I'd say that the episode those bits came from ("We Regret To Inform You") is the weakest MR. SHOW overall (the Borden Grote sketch was too long, most of the other sketches had dead patches, and only "Screwballz" is worthy of mention in the same room as the classic MS pantheon). That said, there are very, very few MR. SHOW bits that come off as egregiously ill-conceived - things were threatening to possibly tip over into blandness at times during the last season, but they somehow always managed to pull it up out of the fire. If they stayed on the air past Season 4, who knows if they could have kept it up? Python's truly great episodes dried up not long after their thirtieth show, after all...

okay, the
Larry Black line, about "fella's take it outside", that is funny.
