ITS GARRY SHANDLINGS SHOW (Shout Factory, 1986-90) Rating: NNNNN DVD package: NNNNN Rating: NNNNN
Garry Shandling warped the sitcom like nobody before or since. He addressed the studio and home audience directly, had guest stars playing themselves, took us backstage into the production process and revealed the arrogant and anxious side of his personality. It was subversive and very funny.
Extensive extras provide a great look at the process. Shandling and producing partner Alan Zweibel are all over three docs – Shandling before the show, cast and crew reminiscences – and on most of the 18 episode commentaries. The many outtakes reveal the show’s improvisational approach.
