Comedy nerds rejoice- Mr. Show's own Bob Odenkirk and David Cross have made their return to sketch comedy with their new Netflix-exclusive program W/ Bob & David.
W/ Bob & David retains many of the things audiences enjoyed about Mr. Show: the blend of the dark with the absurd, the semi-continuous transitions between sketches, and the vicious, no-holds-barred satire of modern society.
Some of the bits include a freelance Jewish Pope, a sovereign citizen who only encounters friendly police officers, a man whose utterance of the word "cunt" summons the people he's shit-talking, and a musical about rooms called Rooms: The Musical.
Acting out these crazy sketches are many of the old Mr. Show cast and writers, including: Paul F. Tompkins, Scott Aukerman, Jay Johnson, and Brian Posehn. And among the veterans are some familiar faces including: Keegan-Michael Key (of Key and Peele), Stephanie Courtney (Flo from Progressive), and Arden Myrin (of Chelsea Lately).
The only bad thing I can honestly say about W/ Bob & David is that it's too damn short. Clocking in at only 5 episodes (4 regular episode and 1 special), it's really closer to a movie than a season of a TV show. I highly recommend watching the one hour special as well, as it affords a rare look behind the curtain on how the show was made starting from the writers room and ending on set.
Park yourself in front of a screen and binge-watch this one.
