HBO show that aired throughout most of the 80's in 30 minute segments featuring comedy sketches/parodies. Does anyone have any stories about this long lost show? Last I knew it was not on dvd and was hard to find on VHS.

I used to love that show. I believe it was my first experience with Rich Hall. Haven't thought about it in years. I vaguely remember a story involving a tank...

Hall was an interesting fella. Loved the Sniglets.
The PRNDL and Spork stick out to me. Cannot remember anymore.

I'm at work right now, and can't access youtube, but there was a supermarket skit. Had several sniglets in there. Next time I'm at home, I'll look it up again. I believe I just searched for "Not Necessarily the News", and it was in the first few results.
