Upright Citizens Brigade
Fans of this comedy Central hit will be thrilled to know that Upright Citizens Brigade is now available on DVD, it's one of the most anticipated releases of the year judging from the effusive comments on Amazon.
This may be the most preposterous of all Comedy Central shows and that's saying a lot. While not up to South Park standards, Upright Citizens Brigade will undoubtedly have you laughing at the shear inanity of it all. A foundation for a kid with an enormous penis? The bucket of truth? Frat boy falls for ugly wood nyphet?
The 'premise' concerns four nutcases (Matt Besser, Amy Poehler, Ian Roberts and Matt Walsh) that make up the UCB, a futuristic something or other set up to create chaos in the world. It's basically a sketch show that jumps from one farcical situation to another, just too bizarre for words. I'm not sure what you need to smoke to follow it but it's stronger than the chronic I get.
Upright Citizens Brigade has been compared to Monty Python's Flying Circus and it's a able comparison, both shows share a love for the incongruous, silly for silliness' sake. Like a modern Kids in the Hall.
Spastic, distracting, fragmentary, and random - Upright Citizens Brigade is stream of conciousness nonsense, not for folks who think in a linear fashion. If TV, as some say, is mindless entertainment this would be a prime example of that, it's a whole new level of ridiculousness.
You get all 10 episodes of the first season on two discs and a boatload of extras in this deluxe edition including commentaries, the pilot episode deleted scenes, some very funny music videos and more.
Season two is even funnier, more ludicrous that the first and is also available on DVD with another great collection of bonus features like an audience Q&A with the central performers, audio commentaries, deleted scenes, a live audience commentary on one episode (that's a new one - and very effective) and early live performances.
Devotees of the Upright Citizens Brigade will want both volumes and you'll save 25% if you order online right now.
TV on DVD Reviews:
FEATURED TV DVDs:
Martin Milner (Tod Stiles) and George Maharis (Buz Murdock) star in this classic television drama about a couple of young guys who set out to see America in a brand new 1961 Corvette drop top.
What makes this show truly unique is that it was filmed in a different U.S. city each week, giving us a stark glance at what living in America looked like in 1960. It was a vastly different landscape, people lived a lot closer to the dirt back then. (I'll bet that decrepit New Orleans dock in episode three is a multi-million dollar condo development if it wasn't washed away by the levy failure.)
No television show had ever attempted anything on this grand a scale before, the technology necessary to make mobile TV production a practical enterprise had just been made available.

The Muppet Show - The Complete Second Season
The last of the classic variety shows and one of the finest TV programs of all time, The Muppet Show Season 2 is an unrestrained delight from start to finish. This amazing production lit up the screens when it debuted in 1976 and the second season may be the best of the series' run.
The sing-alongable theme song. The incredible guest stars. The crazy costumes. Pigs in space. The crabby guys in the balcony. The love / hate relationship between Piggy and Kermit. All here to relive or experience for the first time. If you are encountering The Muppet Show for the first time, what a treat you're in for; if you watched the show as a youngster you may find yourself uncontrollably singing along with the bizarrely choreographed Tin Pan Alley tunes.
No question, this is Muppet-mania at its peak, before the many hit movies and Muppets on Ice diluted the product. How wonderful to see the delightful Edgar Bergen & Charlie McCarthy and Miss Piggy trading barbs that could have come right out of radio. (In fact, some of the jokes do harken from Bergen's radio days.)
