Product Description

Fifteen-year-old Drake and Josh are schoolmates, but not close friends. As a matter of fact, Drake thinks Josh is a bit of a goof. Imagine his shock when he discovers this goof is about to become his stepbrother and new roommate when his mother marries Josh's father!

Amazon.com

Nickelodeon's fresh teen comedy (a successful spin off of The Amanda Show) displays the uncanny comedic talents of Drake Bell and Josh Peck as 15-year-old stepbrothers who are thrown together as roommates when Drake's mother marries Josh's father. Polar opposites in personality, the boys must navigate their way through a myriad of adjustments in their newly blended family. In the first of this two-episode program (from the TV series), Drake discovers that Josh is an undercover advice columnist for the school newspaper using the pseudonym "Miss Nancy." Tensions mount when girl-crazy Drake decides to exploit Josh's "insider information" to attract the school's hottest pick, Tiffany. The second segment, "Dune Buggy" takes a humorous yet insightful look at the "art" of lying--is it a character quality or flaw? The overall show works because of the unmistakable chemistry and physical comedy of its stars, who have been lauded as modern-day Felix and Oscar (of The Odd Couple). Parents will appreciate the program's G-rated humor and refreshing absence of offensive innuendoes. (Ages 8 and older) --Lynn Gibson

Drake and Josh is my favorite show on Nickelodeon. Even though there are no DVD season boxsets out yet, this DVD came out in early 2005 and I bought it. Here is my review ( I have no life ).

[*] Indicates a "DVD Great"

----------

[*]Pilot: 4.5/5 This is the first episode of the series. Drake and Josh become step brothers and Drake realizes that Josh is a real loser in school. In a case of mistaken identity, Josh has to fight a "jealous boyfriend".

[*]Dune Buggy: 4.5/5 Drake and Josh get a dune buggy from Drake's friend, Trevor, but find out that it doesn't run. After getting it fixed, Drake and Josh aren't allowed to even drive it. Josh gets grounded for lying because of Drake, and Drake takes the dune buggy for a ride regardless. He crashes into a tree and tries to hide his injuries.

Two Idiots And A Baby: 4/5 Josh volunteers to babysit, but Drake abandons the baby to play a concert with his band. Josh soon loses the baby and looks tirelesly around the house for him. Soon, Meghan reveals that she had it the whole time and nobody knows what happened.

[*]First Crush: 4.5/5 Josh promises to play a birthday song on guitar at a girls birthday party. Having no idea how to play it, he has Drake teach him, but the strings on the guitar snap. Drake comes up with a plan that makes Josh look like he's playing it but he really isn't.

Special Features: Outtakes: 5/5 On this DVD there are 8 minutes of outtakes. They are pretty good, too, and are well worth watching. Makes the DVD all more worth the money.

----------

Overall, this is an excellent DVD. The quality for some reason is furry-like on the episodes, but the episodes are still great. It has some of the first episodes of this great series.

Personally, I enjoy the Drake & Josh tv show immensely. It is surprisingly witty and funny, not something someone older would expect from Nickelodeon. I, myself (an 18 year old) enjoy the show immensely along with some of my friends of the same age. This show is perfect for someone who is looking for a tv show that doesn't rely on crude humor in order to get laughs. It's funny and lighthearted. An enjoyable experience for all ages.

This specific product though, while capturing the show itself is somewhat limiting in the fact that it is only 2 episodes.

If you like the show you would love to own these two episodes, specially since the pilot is rarely aired on tv. Personally, I own it, and I find myself watching the episodes over and over again.

Honestly, the one problem with this product is that it just makes you wish for more episodes.

At a time when television is dominated by crappy reality show and the family hour is almost extinct, this NICKELODEON sitcom that stars Drake Bell and Josh Peck is a truly pleasant escape from all that. I really have not heard of this sitcom until Drake Bell's appearance in the 2005 version of "YOURS, MINE AND OURS". But the first time I saw it, I was immediately hooked on it. Josh Peck is my favorite on the show. This is a very funny show the whole family will enjoy and this DVD gives you the opportunity to check out the show's early episodes. I highly recommend it. Sometime in the near future, hopefully, Paramount and Nick will come out with the complete first season of DRAKE AND JOSH on DVD Box Set.

The funniest writers write for this sitcom. It's hilarious and so are Drake and Josh. Though the later volumes are much funnier, any fan of the show needs this first volume.

I got this for my 8 yr old daughter for Christmas. She watches it all the time. I watch it with her sometimes and its really funny. I like the message too - not full of stuff that is too old for them.
