Overview

Mr Show: Complete First & Seconds Seasons

HBO Home Video's two-disc collection of Mr. Show's first and second seasons is going to please the alternative comedy duo's fans and probably win them loads of new fans in the process. Monkeys who refuse to blow up the moon, TV cop show star Ronnie Dobb's continuing drunken exploits, and Pit-Pat, the Pansexual Spokescreature are just a few of the bizarre characters David Cross and Bob Odenkirk exploit here. The package is concise and intelligent. Disc one compiles all four episodes of season one and disc two collects all six episodes of season two. Image quality is excellent, and the Dolby Surround sound is clean and bold. The supplemental material is as hilarious as the episodes themselves. Ten short, absurd promotional commercials set the tone for the series. "Fuzz the Musical" gives a perfect introduction to Cross' Ronnie Dobbs. "Before It Was a TV Show" sees the comic team trying out their material and delivery in front of a live audience. "The Best of Mr. Show" compiles clips introduced by a news team given voice-overs by Cross and Odenkirk. The full ten-episode commentary isn't as funny as one would expect, as Cross and Odenkirk go back and forth between comedy and droll "you had to be there" background information. It's nearly sleep-inducing at times, but absolute die-hard fans won't complain. Having the episodes themselves in complete form makes this a pleasure-packed collection.

If you're in your late 20's to early 30's, overweight, balding, lazy, and have nicknames for your smoking paraphenalia, then this is for you! Are you a complicated genius who just can't get off the couch? If you answered in the affirmative, order today.

This DVD is great for young Christians. It has been endorsed publicly by Billy Graham ''The Holy Sky Marshall of Your Mind'' and by ''The Crucifix Quartet'' featuring St.Gary. This collection is a veritable modern day Bible ( but without all the raping and murdering ). Take your copy to church and make Gawd rock!

This show is by far the best sketch show to ever come out in the U.S., Bob, David and the rest are just superb comdic preformers. All the sketchs in the first & second seasons are great; Ronnie Dobbs, Jeppers Creepers, Coupon: the Movie and many others. Simply a must buy for sketch comedy fans.

I did not know about Mr. show until recently. I can't believe I did not hear about it when it was on HBO, The sketches or skits or whatever you want to call them are very clever and extremely funny. Like Marshall the 13th Apostle or the obsessive band guy haunted by mediocrity or Pitpat or my favorite Ronnie Dobbs. David Cross is some kind of Genius maybe...I'm not sure, one thing I am sure of is that he is very funny.

Bob Odenkirk, and David Cross couldnt have done it better than what they accomplisted here in this series of Mr. Show. If you are an HBO series fan I'd sugest you buy this set now! Its the best thing since the invention of the wheel!
