I've seen Mr. Show clips on and off for years, but I don't see anything special. I don't think I've laughed once at it. I think it suffered from what Mad TV did, in a way; potentially good premise, but the delivery lacked something. That "pre taped talk show" sketch could've been so much better.

The Kids In The Hall, for me, did the opposite; a premise that was sort of mundane, but they managed to make it work. Like "No Chocolate Diet", or "Again".

This is exactly the way I feel about Kids in the Hall. I never really thought the show was that funny but maybe I just don't get it.

It's hard. It's really hard to pick.

For many years I ranked KITH over Mr. Show. But as time has gone on, I see more Mr. Show clips for the first time that totally fucking kill - Rap The Musical for example. How that got by me I don't know.

I'm suspicious I could be reacting to what appears to be new stuff to me, but...

I've got to give it to Bob and David by a red short n' curly.

It's so hard to pick. Cruel.

When KITH first aired I was maybe 10 years old. It aired on CBC well past my bedtime. It was weird that something I knew my parents didn't get, something strange and funny, was out of reach. By the the time I was maybe 14 one of my childhood friends and I were totally hooked: he taped each episode on his VCR, and we watched every one repeatedly. It was a ritual in his basement.

We'd constantly reference and act out sketches, just the two of us. It was like no one else watched the show. The unpretentious absurdity and irreverence--spliced with the queer humor and cross dressing--had a pretty big impact on us. Nonetheless, it always felt really Toronto (like 95% of the CBC).

Mr. Show came way later, when I was older, and I don't think I even saw it until after it was off the air. A different close friend, one of the funnier guys I know, was super into it.

We were super baked when he showed me this episode, and it killed. Loved it.

Watching the different, mostly familiar clips from both shows posted on this thread, I didn't LOL once. Maybe just where I'm at.

Mr. Show veered toward a more satirical, critical humor more often than KITH. And that's closer to me. Gives me more pleasure. KITH is just a nostalgia trip for me. Then you factor in the embarrassment of the reunion tour and the Canadian nationalist plaudits.

I go Mr. Show.

WOW. Going to pay someone to tape these for me, or something.


I loooove Mr. Show. I even like the 4th, weakest season. But for me it's got to be Kids In The Hall. The performance quality is no match. Sure, the way Dave and Bob and Jay and Paul and Tom and Jill deliver some of their lines will always rub my ribs (and I think Tom and Jill were possibly the best actors on the show), but the consistency and authenticity of Dave Scott Bruce Kevin and Mark's characters holds together more. I feel the subject matter of Mr. Show was sometimes more subversive and I appreciated that, but KITH dug deeper into human behavior and the territory of the subconscious.
