Outrageous, intelligent and provocative, Chappelle's Show - The Lost Episodes proves that Dave Chappelle is now and forever one of the funniest, most boundary-pushing comedians to ever appear on television.

2.0 out of 5 stars Should have stayed lost July 26, 2006
Format:DVD
When Dave Chappelle shocked the world by turning his back on Comedy Central and his smash hit Chappelle's Show, rumors of completed skits, or in this case "lost episodes" were rampant. Now, in 2006, Chappelle's Show: The Lost Episodes are here, and upon viewing, it's apparent why Chappelle had grown so disatisfied with the direction the show was taking. Since Dave is no where to be found, Charlie Murphy and Donnell Rawlings host and present the sketches, which range from Dave imitating Howard Dean, to once again imitating P. Diddy and Lil' Jon. The saddest part of this DVD isn't that Dave is gone, it's how painful some of the skits are to watch. The Howard Dead and Gary Coleman spoofs go nowhere, as does "The Monsters" in which Dave, Charlie, and Donnell are a werewolf, Frankenstein's monster, and a mummy respectively are discriminated against, and the much heard about pixie sketch is funny at first, but it only furthers the notion that Chappelle stated in interviews about it only furthering racial stereotypes instead of spoofing them. The MTV Cribs skit begins slowly, but by the time Dave whips out some T-Rex eggs, it gets surprisingly funny. The biggest gem of the sketches is Dave in a club that spoofs the post-humous releases by Tupac. Other than that, there's hardly anything else here worth mentioning, which is incredibly disappointing. The second season of Chappelle's Show was a step beyond the first season as Chappelle pushed the limits of comedy and racial issues, but you'd never know it once you give this a look. It's worth a look for fans of the show who have been mourning it's demise, but don't expect much out of it. Instead, check out Dave Chappelle's Block Party or his standup DVD's; they are much more worth your time and cash.

3.0 out of 5 stars Lost for a reason July 16, 2006
Format:DVD
Now, I have been a big fan of the Chappelle's Show series since it began, so I guess that my hopes had been high for a new third season in 2005, just as they had been for the first two. As many people know by now, a full third season was scheduled to premiere on Comedy Central in February 2005, but then it was delayed to May, and then it was said that it would not premiere "until further notice." Due to multiple reasons, the season was never finished, and Comedy Central decided to just go ahead and air the few sketches that were shot, comprising of only three "lost episodes."

When considering the success of the two major seasons of the show, the content of The Lost Episodes is a bit disappointing. The show seems to be lacking something that made the old material work better. The sketches are just not as good as the old ones. Chappelle himself agrees and it is one of the reasons it was not made a full season. One of his concerns was that the way racial issues were handled no longer just poked fun at them, but reinforced them. This is not to say that The Lost Episodes is all bad however. If I was not already expecting something as grand as the first two seasons, then I probably would not have thought it as bad.

The bottom line: if you're a big Chappelle's Show fan, you will still find things in this DVD that excite you, but if you're new to the show, I strongly recommend checking out the first or second season first instead, because though this DVD shows that Dave Chappelle is still a hilarious comedian regardless, it also shows that there is a reason he left the show.

2.0 out of 5 stars 2 stars only because I support Dave.... August 9, 2006
Format:DVD
I think Dave Chappelle is a genius, really ground-breaking, intelligent commentary on society at large and the African-American experience.

I hope to God Dave is getting something positive from this.

Watching this dvd just made me sad. I could not enjoy the sketches fully (although, as stated by others the Cribs and Tupac skits work on their own and are funny). Many of the skits were missing Dave's lead-in and seemed disjointed and confusing at times.

Dave really makes the show - while Donnell and Charlie are funny respectively, it gave me a guilty feeling watching it - it's not their show. It wasn't right, it seemed really forced - not natural and genuine like Dave is. I don't think I could watch this dvd more than once.

Watch the first two seasons and the block party dvd, they're excellent.

I wish Dave well - I think he made the right choice to leave.

I waited a year to see these skits and, well, I feel a bit letdown. Chappelle's Show: The Lost Episodes probably should've stayed lost. I only bought it to complete my Chappelle's Show collection. I can think of maybe two skits that were laugh out loud funny -- the very first skit where Dave is getting a haircut and the club skit where they talk about Tupac. There are a few honorable mention skits like the Daddy Day Care 2 and the MTV Cribs skit. Revenge Is Best Served Cold and Say What You Mean skits are cool, but like most of the material on the disc, it won't generate anything more than a chuckle. I did enjoy the audience participation on Episode 2 though.

Sadly though, the drawbacks are plenty. First and foremost, Dave Chappele is missing, so naturally the show will feel different. Secondly, Charlie Murphy and Donnell Rawlings simply aren't very good hosts.....especially Rawlings. They seemed uncomfortable and sometimes unable out there while they were hosting. Another problem I found were the number of thrown in skits that didn't even have Dave in them (like the "I'm Broke B*tch" throw in) and the Howard Dean skit isn't funny at all. I thought the rehashing of Lil' Jon was corny (especially since his buzz is dying), the Chuck Taylor Newsbreaks weren't funny, and don't even get me started on the awful Pixie skit. Also, you should probably pass on about 80% of the bonus features, they're pretty weak. Basically, the first episode is the best one....then you can kind of jump from scene to scene throughout the rest of the disc to save yourself some time.

My guess is that Dave was losing steam and wanted to seperate himself from any mediocrity associated with this disc (and trust me, there's plenty). I'd only recommend this DVD to die hard Dave Chappelle fans.

2.0 out of 5 stars the need to stay lost...
I thought one skit was funny. Everything else was over the top, and simply was not funny. I do not think that D, Chappelle wrote the material. It wasn't his style. Read more

Hate that the Chappelle show isn't on anymore and The Lost Episodes give a glimpse into why Dave Chappelle felt he needed to leave. Funny and raw, a good buy.

rumor about third season
Yes, something like that was said. However, now that Chapelle is officially done it doesn't matter. The episodes belong to Comedy Central, and its their right to air them or not.
