@squanto2 You must of been Valedictorian, as you are annoying as all hell.
Top Cat and Benny!
@JacksonPerdue I think you need psychiatric help.
If being annoying is funny, this guy’s a genius.
The greatest show I ever seen…
Steve Martin can’t play Bilko because the whole premise of that project is wrong. It’s *The Phil Silvers Show*. Bilko isn’t a character. It’s Phil being Phil in a costume – and it could be any costume in any setting. If Steve Martin wants to play a sergeant in a military send up, fine – but don’t call it Sgt. Bilko, which was essentially a one man show with supporting players. It’d be like Chris Rock doing a stand up gig but AS Eddie Murphy. If it’s not the actual guy, what’s the fucking point?
Ah, The Phil Silvers Show AKA Sgt Bilko. I’m British and this show is WELL before my time. However, in my eyes this is the best sitcom ever written and aired, despite being almost forgotten. It simply ticks all the right boxes.
And I speak as a fan of Father Ted, Fawlty Towers, Married with Children, Frasier, Drop the Dead Donkey, One foot in the Grave, Bottom and many more!
@talbrott May have given Billy Joel the idea, too.
He was hilarious as Sergeant Knocker lol

awesome show. i loved the re-runs. phil silvers is awesome.
I think that in the early 90s Steve Martin caught the “unfunny” virus, and he hasn’t been the same since. I ain’t even gonna bother watching his Pink Panther remakes!
I just wasted 20 minutes watching that piece of crap remake by Steve Martin.
What an insult it was to this treasure of TV history.
NO ONE can play Sgt. Bilko other than Mr. Silvers.
The scene where the con artists pretend to be from the same hometown was stolen and used in the film “Hudsucker Proxy” by the Coen Bros.
bilko was class
thanks for uploading , its was great show. Love to watch the whole series.
Man this show brings back great memories, thanks so much for uploading! =D
Phil Silvers was a comedy genius!
good boy for getting hit by a cab! XD
Steve Martin should have been horsewhipped for doing Bilko. It was heresy,sacrilege,blasphemy as well as a goddamn cryin’ shame. BILKO IS GOD!!! God bless u Phil. I cried when he died.
This show is so funny……..thanx
