Editorial Reviews

All 16 Original Episodes From Season One

Before the Internet, before reality TV, no one saw what television could be more humorously and with more vision than Garry Shandling. In 1986 Garry Shandling was poised to become a permanent guest host on Johnny Carsons The Tonight Show. Instead, he took a chance on an offer from fledgling cable network Showtime to create his own television series. No questions asked.
A surreal look at the daily life of a young single man who is a comedian, Its Garry Shandlings Show was not a typical sitcom: Shandling would break the fourth wall to include the studio audience and the viewers at home in on the actual making of the show. Experimenting with the sitcom form meant inviting the audience onto the set, playing with the passage of time and generally exploding the genre and making art of the debris.

Teaming up with Saturday Night Live veteran Alan Zweibel, the two men 'put on a fourth-grade play' every week for four seasons. With a crew of talented young writers (including Tom Gammill and Max Pross, who would go on to write Seinfeld and produce The Simpsons, and Ed Solomon, who wrote Men In Black), television history was made. From its unforgettable theme song to its closing credits, Its Garry Shandlings Show was award-winning, mind-bending television, and its influence is clearly seen in the best TV comedies through the decades to follow.

Bonus Features

* Getting There: The Road To The Show: Garry Shandling takes us from the Engineering Department at the University of Arizona to Its Garry Shandlings Show

* Television Parts: Sketches. The two segments of Michael Nesmiths groundbreaking television series that inspired the show

* Commentaries by Garry Shandling, Alan Zweibel, Tom Gammill, Max Pross and Ed Solomon

* It Only Looks Easy: Outtakes

5.0 out of 5 stars Only the beginning April 21, 2010
Garry Shandling gets started here in situation comedy, but he turns the genre upside down in a way that help establish (in 1986) a place for comedians such as Jerry Seinfeld to become legitimate television sit-com personalities. The writing of this show rivals that of Seinfeld, but what has always made this thing click for me is the direct contact with the audience, both in the studio and through the TV screen. His idea of admitting he's doing a television show before a live audience -- showing the audience and even, in one episode, appearing to invite them onto the set of his home while his is on another set. It's pure craziness from the start. Even the theme song is classic. This is a four-disc set that includes some commentary and a few outtakes, as well as an interview with Shandling, post-Larry Sanders. Most definitely worth the price, although I would suggest buying the set containing the entire series.

4.0 out of 5 stars Loved this! December 31, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Before Seinfeld, there was Garry Shandling. This sitcom still holds up today as one of the most inventive, creative and groundbreaking TV shows in history. It's the classic, "talk to the viewer" TV format and no one pulls this off better than Shandling. While the rest of the cast never plays to the audience, Shandling makes playing both sides of the camera look effortless and easy. Silly plots make this series even more hysterical. I have to buy the complete series. Enjoy!

4.0 out of 5 stars Loved this show as a teenager June 28, 2014
Now I have found it and wanted to relive it would usually play on Sunday nights on FOX, and along with the Tracey Ullman show it was a ritual....Shandling is a very funny guy, one of the greatest comics ever......worth every penny.

4.0 out of 5 stars Long lost gem from cable's heyday .... January 28, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
I recall watching almost every episode of this show on Showtime back in the day and have long since thought about it all these years later. Was great to re-watch some episodes now. The Idea, conception and interpretation of this show has always been a favorite
to use as example of what can be done when actual creative people come together to create something fresh.

3.0 out of 5 stars First season review August 15, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
If you are a fan of Garry Shandling, this is a must. Overall, as a sitcom, the episodes are dated and the format (even if very creative in originality) makes them hard to get through at times. It had its good points and bad. You won't be throwing away your money, but I would not rank it as a favorite by any means. Try the Larry Sander's Show instead.
