IT is a series of skits, with many great gems. There are moments where it can fail, but think of it like a courtroom Dailyshow...kind of but not really. It is a made up vs debate where two comedians go head to head on why one thing is worse than another. Lewis judges, and jumps in from time to time, but the others (who have been on the Dailyshow and such) do the presentin of both sides. This is not 100% Black, it is more like 20% his work and the rest of the talk time is the presenters. I loved this show, downloaded every episode I could, now it is out on dvd...and it is mine!

Some people may not feel 5 stars is correct, but I felt this show was so great at times I could not fault it. But if you are a Lewis Black fan...well you should like it too, but it seems from the other reviews they have issues with other people presenting. Hey it is both seasons!

Lewis Black is undoubtedly one of, if not the, funniest comedians in the business today, which is the one reason that Root of All Evil works as well as it does. Black presides over some humerous debates between pairs of other comics (including Patton Oswalt, Greg Giraldo, and Mad TV vet Andrew Daly among others), who debate the evils of such things ranging from Oprah, Donald Trump, YouTube, marijuana, and more. Frequently funny and even containing a good point here and there, Root of All Evil will keep you entertained, and will keep you laughing. Sadly though, not as many laughs come from Black as one may like, and more often than not the debating comics become the centerpiece. All in all, Root of All Evil is worth your time, but for big fans of Lewis Black, you may be a bit disappointed that he isn't constantly at the forefront.

Another one of Mr Black's "side splitting" productions.
We're big fans and Mr Black didn't disappoint.

I bought this DVD hoping to see Lewis Black skewering pop culture/politics/society in general, as he usually does. Unfortunately (my fault, didn't read the item description well enough) this is other comedians in the "courtroom of public opinion" with Black as judge. He only offers a few good lines per episode, although, to be fair, the other comedians often have some good one-liners. If you want Back-in-Black-esqe material, look elsewhere.

I don't know what it is about Lewis Black, if it's his angry, shouting, peed off routine, or what, but I find him entertaining. I am not much for the hardcore comedian's like Andrew Dice Clay, nor am I for silly comedic. Black sort of fits in between somewhere. In this DVD, Black is the host of two comedians that debate some silly stuff; Two comedians take sides in debating which is worse: Oprah vs. the Catholic Church; Paris Hilton vs. Dick Cheney, and more. It's will give you a few good laughs.

I've been a fan of Black for years. I missed this season when it aired on Comedy Central. I did see a few shows from season two. It's much more enjoyable uncensored. I'm now looking for season two "uncensored". If you like Black, You will like this.

Some reviewers have complained that other comedians are featured in this as much as Lewis Black. Anyone who has ever listened to Black's comedy recognizes that these are his words coming out of their mouths. It had me in the first five minutes!
