I remember this show's debut!
26 February 2004 | by Movie_Fan69See all my reviews

I was sitting in a boring, warehouse-type building, working as a security guard for a well-known firm dealing with banks and valuables. We would wait for service calls, and respond to them. This was the "swing shift" and nothing ever happened. As I recall, it was Friday or Saturday night, and we usually played poker or hearts, when Dave brought a black-and-white TV set in. We would often watch Hulk Hogan, Randy Savage, Jake the Snake and the other retard wrestlers so popular to the missing chromosome set of that time period. I stumbled upon "D.C. Follies" while walking up and changing the channels. At this point, my memory becomes quite clear. Nixon, Ford, and Carter sat around a table. Nixon was always plotting a money-making scheme (e.g. "Bookmobile, and everyone gets a free chest x-ray), Carter was his usual sanctimonious self, and Ford would often just laugh and fall backwards in his chair, feet and legs exaggeratedly flying up to the sky. HILARIOUS! The first episode I remember was ol' Tricky Dick playing the keyboards at the very end, throwing in synthesized crap for effect. WE ROLLED AROUND ON THE FLOOR AND COULDN'T ANSWER THE DAMN PHONE FOR FIFTEEN MINUTES AFTER THE SHOW ENDED...HAND TO GOD! If I don't get copies of these episodes soon, life will no longer be worth it!
