Wow, this show was really something!

Check out all the awards the show was up for at Wikipedia and other internet sites.

This DVD set has extensive, informative interviews that are not mentioned in the library system, and also not identified on the existing DVD case, at the time of this comment .

If I have my facts straight, the DVD set will have the following additional information:

Disc 1 - extensive interview with Gary Owens.

Disc 2 - extensive interview with Ruth Buzzi.

Disc 3 - extensive interview with Arte Johnson.

If ever there was a 1960's TV show that totally jumped on the "Now Generation" bandwagon - That one show would, undoubtedly, have to be "Laugh-In".

To me - The major trouble with "Laugh-In" (which was neither hip nor cool) was that it was geared to please (and produce chuckles from) the most conservative and mealy-mouthed squares imaginable. This show didn't come anywhere near to offering its audience groundbreaking humour, at all. No. It didn't.

"Laugh-In" was a "roll-your-eyes-to-the-ceiling-and-groan"-type of comedy program where its stale jokes were repeatedly delivered with total smugness from the unfunny members of its second-rate cast.

Not only were women frequently depicted as being flaky bimbos on "Laugh-In" - But I also lost track of how many times it became plainly obvious to me (as the viewer) that the actors were, indeed, reading their lines straight from cue-cards that were placed before them just out of camera-range.

The only thing that makes any sense to me as to why so many people are giving "Laugh-In" such high ratings all boils down to them choosing to view this decidedly dimwitted TV show through the murky haze of rose-coloured glasses..... (For distraction - Watch goofy, 3-star "Purple People Eater" music-video*)
