Entertaining, Funny, Delightful, Clever, Great writing

See it if You are an early era TV addict & old B movies fan and loved all the old commercials of yesteryear. You like zany fun & spoofs.

Don't see it if You prefer regular normal plays with traditional casting or have little humor. You unfortunately missed out on the glorious fun of early TV.

Also This is a zany cleverly conceived comedy with 2 separate storylines of a 1950's TV program with 2 hosts--1 alcoholic corny pompous male & 1 nervous summation caricature of 50's domestic stereotype of the perfect TV female role model. They're expertly portrayed by actors Nash & Geringswald. Their small talk, commercials, artificial happy go lucky exteriors & reaction to uncontrollable technical disasters of early TV are hilarious & really bring back nostalgia. The hosts introduce a B detective film noir which starts the simultaneous second storyline with an amazing 6 person cast that portrays 17 characters (some gender bender) with individual personalities & personal flair. They are played to the hilt with great color, humor, & distinction. Kudos to the period dialogue filled with smart ass Street terms and lovable corny jokes delivered with rapid fire pace & percussion perfect timing with great parody acting. Costumes & simple old poster set & TV dinner prop are perfect. FUN, GO SEE

Clever, Delightful, Entertaining, Great acting, Refreshing

See it if You love classic movies, fluff, parodies, fun, the 30's & 50's. Great cast.

Don't see it if If you don't like fluff, parodies, 30's, 50's or Classic movies. If you don't like fun.

Also I loved this. I could see this type of show becoming a cult classic with people wondering which "movie" would be talked about on the "tv show". Loved the will either love it or hate it.

Clever, Entertaining, Funny, Edgy

See it if you remember the Million Dollar Movie, love 30s crime flicks, and believe TV Dinners can save a marriage. Great fun!

Don't see it if parodies aren't your thing. This is an imaginative, gender-bending take on a fun era. Like it or pass it up!

Clever, Quirky, Slow, Good acting

See it if You like film noir, clever spoofs, and broad humor -- with good acting. The show is somewhat slow, but reasonably enjoyable nonetheless.

Don't see it if You want something serious. This is a gentle mocking of 1950s sensibilities, early television programming and ads, and film noir style.

Disappointing, Great acting, Overrated, Off the mark, Great costumes

See it if you can appreciate a group of talented hardworking performers lost in a script that misses the mark, and to see a great a great curtain call

Don't see it if you're a Charles Busch fan and can't help but constantly wish that he had been the playwright.

Confusing, Slow

See it if You like 1930s gangster films.

Don't see it if want a fast-paced parody.

Also This show was well-intentioned and had a game and talented cast. It just seemed like it was mostly actors standing in place and delivering dialogue. I don't know if it was because of the small space but it seemed curiously immobile for such a broad comedy. The script employs many clever turns-of-phrase but I wish the evening had been funnier. Although the director and actors are to be credited with creating strong, distinct characters, I had problems following the story as the actors switched back and forth from character to character.

"There are a few laughs in this insufficient spoof…In terms of writing and execution this production never rises to the heights of accomplished lunacy necessary to succeed as a full-fledged antic exhibition...The double entendre, pun title is the cleverest thing about it…The plot is a meager rehash of familiar elements of the genre. At 70 minutes, it has the potential to be at best a breezy diversion but its stale conception is further undermined by the routine direction."

"Immediately we know we are in for some fun...The 18 characters are played by only six actors in the cast, a fascinating feat!...Embracing and melding two separate genres like early live television with 1930s gangster films would at first appear to be an effort in 'too much.' However, writer Todd Michael and director Synge Maher pull it off with a madcap flair and an ensemble with the side-splitting talent to nail down their roles."
