Chappelle's Show - Season 2

There's a good bit, too, about black soothsayer Negrodamus, whose ability to foresee events is limited to the fortunes of celebrities. Coming under fire (amusingly) are those McDonald's commercials suggesting that burger-flipping employment for African Americans can overhaul inner city communities. But, as with season 1, there are several masterpieces in this collection as well, such as Chappelle's vision of what the Internet would look like if it was a place you could actually, physically visit (with the equivalents of pop-up ads, porn sites, etc.). Equally inspired is a sketch in which a freeloading Chappelle, having impregnated the ultra-rich Oprah Winfrey, indulges his every whim. Best of all is Chappelle's take on what President Bush's administration would look like if the Chief Executive were, in fact, a black man. --Tom Keogh

Had they not had these covers on, this DVD would NOT have censored it. And ask yourself why they pixelated that when, during the Oprah sequence, Dave was painting a VERY NAKED woman who was NOT pixelated at all...and was 100% in the buff. Think about it!
It's really a shame when reviews have to resort to something like this, but I felt I owed it to Dave, Neal and their genius comedic talents to let everyone know what they were complaining about was really absolutely nothing! So, instead of WRONGLY complaining about pixelated breasts (which you were wrong about anyway), spend your time watching this hilarious set for the sole reason it was created for - making us laugh!
Not many tv shows have made me laugh nearly as much as this has. Between Charlie Murphy's True Hollywood Stories, and Chappelle's take on a children's educational puppet show, this is well worth the $25-30 you'll pay for it. Aside from a couple dull moments (maybe I'm the only one who doesn't find poop jokes all that funny), the season is consistently good. There are a few moments that shine above the rest, like the ones I mentioned above and a particular exchange of words between Wayne Brady and some prostitutes, but just about every episode has replay value.
The musical guests don't usually appeal to me, but if you're like me then it's not hard to fast-forward. It certainly doesn't hurt the show at all.
It's also probably worth mentioning that the show is very vulgar and sensitive people will probably be offended by it, as they have a tendency of doing. This is where the most of the show's funniest moments are though, so be warned.
Highlights on this set for me included Dave's 'Training Day' ride with Wayne Brady, Charlie Murphy's Rick James segments, and the Charlie Murphy bit about playing ball with Prince. Included in the extras are several great segments, including more Charlie Murphy interviews, an extended Rick James interview, and some behind the scenes standup of Dave's that is not included during the show. On the negative side and worth note is the fact that Comedy Central felt it necessary to throw a plethora of ads at the viewer on this DVD set, and I personally was able to overlook this small issue because the rest of the total package is just fantastic.
Pros- Extra content beyond the basic episodes, and the episodes themselves.
Cons- Lots of annoying Comedy Central ads.
Overall- Despite the ads, this is a great purchase and will have you laughing yourself silly over and over.
