The Best Of Bizarre Vol.3
The Best Of Bizarre Vol.4
John Byner hosted this sketch comedy show that aired on CTV and Showtime back in the 80s. I must have watched it on Showtime. The main thing I remember from the show is Super Dave Osborne. Always trying his latest stunt to no avail. The sketches were some of the most outrageous spoofs you will ever see. Nothing and no one was immune. It was like a live action TV Funhouse from Saturday Night Live. The way they poked fun at race, religion, celebrities and the like. You would be watching it and not believing that they just did that. If you like sketch comedy that is actually funny then check out The Best of Bizarre. Each volume has 10 episodes from the show, uncut and uncensored, on one disc picked by the shows producers Allan Blye and Bob Einstein.

Inspector Gadget: The Original SeriesInspector Gadget: The Original Series
This was one of my favorite cartoons growing up. It was a cross between Mission Impossible and James Bond except Inspector Gadget was a cross between Maxwell Smart and Inspector Clouseau. He bumbled his way through each investigation given to him by Chief Quimby. If it were not for his niece Penny and her trusty dog Brain, he would have never solved the caper and foiled another M.A.D. plot by Dr. Claw. The best part of the show was all the built in gadgets that never seemed to work, as he wanted. Rollerskate shoes, helicopter out of his hat, extendo legs and arms and don’t forget the Gadget Mobile. Q and the Aston Martin had nothing on this vehicle. The DVD set has 22 episodes on four discs that includes a featurette retrospective.
