Mr. Show with Bob and David

What a gem of our culture this show is.  I’m still struck by how smart, sharp, well executed it is.  It really is exemplary in so many ways.  I hope things like these are not lost on later generations given the immense increase in the amount of media produced.  My fear is that the sheer volume of worthless content and the marketing machines behind it will completely obscure things of quality given enough time.  Is that irrational to think?
