Editorial Reviews

Product Description

In this age of skepticism and not getting it, Americans want the truth…iness. And no one has more truthiness than it-getter, flagophile, and four-star American hero, Stephen Colbert. Now, with this collection of The Colbert Report’s finest moments, you can watch as Stephen shows the nation how he better feels the facts, better justifies injustices, and better knows the districts. So, look up in the sky, above the fruited plain, across the purple mountain majesties. This…is The Colbert Report.

Amazon.com

At a liberal three hours, this Colbertrospective is as definitive as The Best of Chappelle's Show. Here are the signature segments ("Better Know a District"), defining moments (the definition of "truthiness", Merriam-Webster's 2006 Word of the Year), classic confrontations ("Papa Bear" Bill O'Reilly, Jane Fonda, and Emmy-stealer Barry Manilow) and essential features (the "Green Screen Challenge" and "Stephen Colbert's Rock and Awe: Countdown to Guitarmageddon,") If you're a recent immigrant to Colbert Nation, this DVD is your passport for full citizenship. A spin-off of The Daily Show, The Colbert Report (those T's are silent) is a pitch-perfect parody of self-mythologizing TV pundits ("This show is not about me," Colbert, in full gravitas, proclaims in episode 1. "It is dedicated to you, the heroes. Who are the heroes? The people who watch this show"). Colbert is a "straight shooter" who doesn't trust books ("they're all fact and no heart") and he promises to "feel the news at you." But the media-savvy Colbert doesn't just feel the news, he makes news. Included is his jaw-dropping "Better Know a District" interview with Florida Democratic Congressman Robert Wexler, who was running unopposed in the 2006 Midterm election, prompting Colbert to goad him into saying "a few things that would really lose the election for you if you were contested" ("I enjoy the company of prostitutes because it's a fun thing to do"). Soon after, the Democratic leadership told incoming-freshman congressmen to steer clear of the Report. Colbert has abandoned his run for President of the United States following his failure to secure a place on South Carolina's ballot. It's just as well. There is, he states, "a whole big world to fix," and now more than ever we need a leader, who, as venerable 60 Minutes correspondent Morley Safer observes at one point, is "a sunburst of emotion in a time darkened by reason." --Donald Liebenson

If you're a dedicated viewer of the Report, you might find yourself a bit disappointed with this DVD. While it does feature some of the major highlights of the past couple years, there is so much missing: no gag reel, no behind-the-scenes, no sign of segments like Tip of the Hat, Who's Honoring Me Now, Alpha Dog of the Week, Cheating Death, Bears and Balls, the Atone Phone, etc. The disc features only one Threatdown and two Words. The Report is a big show packed with hilarity, and often it's the little things (character breaks, malfunctions, random absurdity) that truly make it great. Comedy Central would do well in the future to include some montages that capture more of TCR's daily wit instead of presenting only the biggest events as an uninspired overview.

I have to agree with those who have reviewed this DVD now it has been released. I found it a big disappointment, sloppily put together, arguably not even the best bits of the show thus far. Some of the "Better know a district" segments didn't even have the lead in, just jumped straight to the interview (e.g. John Hall). No doubt that the show is one of the funniest things on TV, and I'm a huge Colbert fan, but this DVD was very, very disappointing.

I love the Colbert Report and was very happy a release of the best of clips dvd. I got the dvd and thought the set up of the dvd was big disappointment. The menu is basic scroll of clips and thats about it, well previews of other Comedy Central releases. Its not really the best of the show. Poor selection of clips, whoever picked them. The only saving grace for the dvd is the Better Know a District segements, which is one of the funniest segements in any variety/news show. Still I recommend it to Colbert fans because they love him no matter what.

Colbert is a favorite of mine and while I'm not sure these are "the best" clips from the show, the dvd is sure to entertain.

I count myself fortunate to have the ability to read such words of wisdom, from...dare I say (?)...a Prophet. His good sense, (for it is not common!) is a breath of fresh air.

Purchase this book for each member of your family, you will not be sorry. Hopefully you will be able to get in on one of the First Editions...destined no doubt to be a collector's item.

I must now return to my Colbert Shrine.....the flowers are looking a bit wilted, and the spot light needs a small adjustment.

Funny! I am a "fair weather" Colbert fan. I enjoy the show every time I watch it, which is usually when someone else turns it on. I get it, and I enjoyed his book, I Am America (And So Can You!).

This "best of" is best considered a sampling of what he does, says, and "believes." It's a good taste of the Colbert Nation.

The Willie Nelson episode is especially funny!

By saved my life I mean filled me with the American spirit, of course.

What this DVD is, in a nutshell, is Comedy Central compiling all of the clips that we'd probably look for on youtube to show our friends. This is a collection of the times that Stephen has not just reported on the news, but created it.

~The Word/Dictionary hijinkery
~The Star Wars Green Screen Challenge! (not a contest)
~His shred down with The Decemberists
~Robert Wexler
~And more!

It's hilarious. We giggled for hours. Seriously, this DVD was long! I was extremely pleased and will be sharing this with my friends for sure. =) A+ for Stephen!
