Though the DVD collection Not Just the Best of The Larry Sanders Show came out last Tuesday, it wasn't until this weekend the we were able to climb into it. Both the New York Times and the Los Angeles Times wrote extensive articles about the set (Google them!), but it is best to explore it for yourself. Most of the attention for this compilation has revolved around the eight hours of new and almost impromptu interviews that Garry Shandling (the star, executive producer, creator and central force behind The Larry Sanders Show) shot with his costars and celebrity friends including David Duchovny, Tom Petty and Janeane Garofalo. While these segments are indeed revealing about the nature of the show and Shandling, do not discount the 24 episodes themselves, most of which have never been available on DVD. Ten years later the shows remain hilarious, insightful and just about the best thing that happened on television in the ’90s.
