Summary: (taken from tvtome.com) The Sifl and Olly Show is a show about 2 sock puppets named Sifl and Olly who run a low-budget TV show out of their apartment. The duo host a variety of segments throughout the show.

Segments include:
Calls from the Public - Sifl and Olly would take calls, either with a question or comment; from their fans, landlord, or even Olly's mother.

Interview Time - The interviews rarely went without a hitch. Usually Sifl had forgotten to book the star or spent all the money on some lame scheme or product. The interviews then were either substituted with another lesser interviewee or Olly would dress up as the person.

Rock Facts - Sifl and Olly would ask a question, either before commercial or during the show pertaining to rock history. The answers were usually made up and non-sensical, but Olly made it clear that Bjork was off limits.

Rock! - Pretty much self explanatory, Sifl and Olly would break out in song.

Precious Roy - In order to help finance the show, Sifl and Olly would sell merchandice that Precious Roy himself made. Olly would go crazy during his sales-pitch. They would then take calls from people who have already bought the products. The segment would end with Precious Roy making a comment on the item, but due to his loss of senility, he usually says something totally out of the blue.

A Moment with Chester - Chester, Sifl and Olly's friend, would come on and do an interview.

Letters to Chester - As a follow up to 'A Moment With Chester,' they introduced this new segment. In it, Sifl & Olly read the letters and Chester responded to them.

It's Almost the End of the Show - The show usually wrapped up with Sifl and Olly doing a musical number.

Episode 1 includes: Interview: Stealth / Rock Fact: What Mysterious Coincidence Links Prodigy to Pink Floyd? / Song: "It's Okay (Cindy's The Hostess)" / Precious Roy's Lice Monkeys / Calls: Loser Elvis, Broken ATM Card, Landlord (Monkeys) / Chester: Tap Dancing Tribe / Rock Fact: What Strange Power Links Mariah Carey To Marine Life? / Interview with Champs 1 on the Moon (Asparagus) / Calls: Problem in the Bathroom, Test Cheater / Song: "Rock & Roll Show" / (Dub version of theme at end credits)

Review: I've decided to revisit the entire sifl and olly series. Why? I've finally been able to get my hands on the episodes, since they've never been released to DVD except for the third season. When I was 13 and this premiered on mtv, I religously watched until it was cancelled/ended three years later. It's an incredibly funny show, and I love Liam Lynch and all of his projects to death. Quite honestly, it's funnier than a lot of the stuff on US TV right now. Sit back, relax and let's go into the world of Sifl and Olly.

Season 1: 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20
