We were beyond excited when it was announced that Cross and Odenkirk would be doing another show with much of the original cast of Mr. Show. Hopes have been high for the series, and understandably so — the show is in the very capable hands of Bob and David, and is produced by the likes of Eric Wareheim, Tim Heidecker, Marc Provissiero, Dave Kneebone, Naomi Odenkirk and Tim Sarkes.
Perhaps knowing fans are chomping at the bit, Netflix released the sketch above that feels just like the good ol’ days of Mr. Show. Sure the guys are bit older, but they haven’t lost their style or timing. Bob and David are joined by Mr. Show alums Paul F. Tompkins, Jay Johnston and John Ennis in a sketch involving New Year’s resolutions. We’re abruptly dropped into a setting and given a humdrum premise with absurd variations, all while the cast takes time to pepper in a bit of nonsense the original show was famous for.
Not that we needed any proof, but this sketch is irrefutable evidence that With Bob And David is going to be every bit as good as we hoped.
What do you think about the sketch? Are you as excited as we are? Let us know in the comments below!
