Overview

Their groundbreaking and surreal sense of humor at times echoing the likes of Monty Python, the Kids in the Hall took the television sketch comedy form to delirious new heights. Now, with the DVD release of the first season of The Kids in the Hall, fans can enjoy all of their favorite sketches and characters in addition to taking a fascinating look at the origins of the trend-setting troupe. With each episode presented in 1.33:1 full-frame, the show as presented here looks at least as good, if not better, than fans will remember it -- with vibrant colors and even skin tones making for a great picture. The Dolby Digital Stereo soundtrack rings through loud and clear with a well-balanced mix that is free of any audible distortion. By this point, die-hard fans can probably recite each episode line-for-line, which makes the inclusion of over two hours of extra features an enticing addition to this already solid release. Beginning with the 45-minute documentary "An Oral History," the Kids recall the trajectory of their career from their early days performing as "The Audience" to their meeting with Saturday Night Live creator Lorne Michaels and subsequent deal with pay-cable giant HBO. It's certainly fascinating to hear the tale told straight from the mouths of the performers themselves, and the discussion of some controversial sketches and the trials of adapting their stage show to television will no doubt interest fans. Audio commentary on the two best-of compilations ("Pilot Episode Favorites" and "Season 1 Favorites") is lively and shows that the Kids are still sharp as ever, and a handful of sketches from a late-'80s Rivoli Theater performance give an appetizing look at what was to come for the troupe. The inclusion of a Rolling Stone article offers a great time capsule from when the Kids were just about to break out as well. Also included are biographies for the Kids.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Christina Urban
It’s not often that a sketch comedy show becomes groundbreaking television, but when it does, you know to stick around just to see what happens next. For five seasons, The Kids in the Hall -- a Canadian comedy troupe featuring Dave Foley, Bruce McCulloch, Kevin McDonald, Mark McKinney, and Scott Thompson -- blasted through preconceived notions of what made people laugh. In this universe, all female characters are played by the Kids in drag, a man who crushes people’s heads is funny, and a guy with a cabbage for a head isn’t all that weird. Kids in the Hall ran for five seasons in Canada and aired in the U.S. on HBO, where the Kids’ irreverent comedy went uncensored. But for fans who know the show from Comedy Central, where the occasionally colorful language required editing, the DVDs will be and eye-opener. Kids was an early gay favorite for its use of Out characters, such as Scott Thompson’s hilarious Buddy Cole. The bar he runs, Buddy’s, is the site of his one-on-one chats with the audience on everything from race relations to the bad manners of dinosaurs. Each Kid has his own strengths, but overall the Kids are resilient actors, playing multiple roles over the course of the season. The pre-News Radio Dave Foley cements the cast, often playing the company CEO or the mother. Bruce McCulloch, who’s on the short side, often plays annoying little boys. Kevin McDonald is sometimes cast as the wife, or a flustered customer, while Mark McKinney, with his penchant for accents, often plays crazy guys like Mr. Tyzik, the above-mentioned head-crusher. The Kids wrote most of the material themselves, which lends a brilliant idiosyncrasy to the production; something that plays out especially well in this marathon DVD format. Also included in the set is 30 minutes from a live Kids show at the Rivoli Theater, as well as commentaries from the Kids and an interview with executive producer Lorne Michaels of Saturday Night Live.
