MR. SHOW WITH BOB AND DAVID: IT'S A NO BRAINER (TV)

Summary

One in this series of sketch comedy programs starring Bob Odenkirk and David Cross. In this episode, Mr. Show gets picketed by the world's two greatest picketers, who eventually go on to a life of fame and fortune. A local news channel's reporters create their own "breaking news." "Culture Hunt," a game show on V-TV, sends college-age contestants on a hunt around the world to find beanbags, eventually landing the group in Anne Frank's historic attic. Jack Webber, a host of anti-communist propaganda films in the 1950s, apologizes for his previous career in a weekly segment "Take It Back Jack." Dream of a Lifetime, an inept charity organization, is supposed to grant dying kids one last wish, but they fail to every time. A Satanist and a Catholic priest call a press conference to urge the media to have more accurate portrayals of the devil. And, on "Let's Get Sloppy" contestants earn points by engaging in a massive food fight.
