Overview

Fans of the D rejoice, the greatest band in the world has finally made their way to DVD courtesy of the folks at Epic! A two-disc set that is certain to please both the casual and the die-hard fan, this release will no doubt win over a few converts as well. Presented in their original 1.33:1 full-frame aspect ratio, the image throughout is near flawless. From the professional production of Tenacious D's Brixton Academy performance to HBO short films, every image presented here has been taken from the best possible source. While the live concert footage offers the tunes that have become standard to those who bought their eponymous CD debut, the HBO episodes and extras on the second disc show that there was indeed much more material than many may have thought. The simulated 5.1 Surround Sound fills the room and places the viewer squarely in front of JB and KG as they rock you into oblivion. Since their brief run on HBO, the six all-too-short episodes have reached near legendary status among fans -- and it's great to see them included in this package as well. While all these inclusions may be fine and good (read: expected) by casual fans of Tenacious D, it's the second DVD in this set that will truly rock their socks off. In addition to a trio of short films produced for HBO and four music videos, this disc also compiled the band's appearances on Mad TV, Crank Yankers, and Late Night With Conan O' Brien -- a thankful inclusion for those whose well-worn VHS tapes have seen better days. If all of this wasn't already too much for viewers, the behind-the-scenes offerings of "Tenacious D in the Studio," "The Making of Wonderboy," and "Tenacious D on the Road" are sure to keep fans suitably rocked until the release of their long-awaited feature film.

Editorial Reviews

There's no denying the hilarity and whacked-out musical genius of Jack Black. Though Black has seen his comedic star rise sensationally with meaty roles in High Fidelity and School of Rock, it should not be forgotten that he has recorded the bulk of his best work with his partner-in-comedy, Kyle Gass. This comprehensive, two-disc DVD collection outlines their career to date, beginning with an entire live performance, recorded at London's Brixton Academy, which reveals why the duo's comedy-and-rock combo is as infectious and artful as the age-old pairing of chocolate and peanut butter. Tenacious D have built their fan base with a heavy tour schedule, honing their act, and eventually getting picked up for a magnificent six-episode series on HBO -- which fills out the rest of Disc 1 here. Disc 2 collects all of the band's music videos along with exclusive behind-the-scenes making-of footage; short films from the band's live shows and long-form TV programs; never-before-seen TV commercials, and some very rare TV appearances.
