The Dave Thomas Show
Dave Thomas of SCTV fame had a short lived sketch show in 1990.  He would have his famous friends guest star on this show, this show features Dan Aykroyd and was helped written by Mike Myers.  How does it hold up with all this SCTV and SNL talent involved in the show? Have a listen and see if this show should have been canceled after only 5 episodes, or should have been given time to grow. Just to let everyone know I say the name Max Von Sydow about 73 times in 2 minutes!! www.scottyblanco
