Editorial Reviews

Set in a Denver suburb, THE BILL ENGVALL SHOW stars comedian Bill Engvall (Blue Collar Comedy) as Bill Pearson, a family counselor whose own family could maybe use a little dose of counseling. He works with dysfunctional families all day and comes home to what he sees as perfection, but in reality they are somewhat absurd, unpredictable and just as mixed up as any other family. Nancy Travis (Becker) plays his witty and loving wife, Susan, who tries to keep the family in line. Bill and Susan keep busy raising their teenage daughter, Lauren, and sons Trent, a sports and video game enthusiast, and Bryan, a musically talented neat freak with a pet snake. The kids love their parents but also know how to manipulate them. Also adding to the family dynamic is Bills mother, an outrageous senior with the energy of a teenager. Comedic actors Tim Meadows and Steve Hytner round out the cast as Bill's closest friends.

We really enjoy Bill Envall's comedy, but living in the UK, we get to see precious little of his work. So we were pleased to see he had his own series available on DVD and weren't disappointed. It's great fun, with really likeable characters - this is well observed comedy and anyone with teenage kids will recognise many of the situations. It started slowly in the early episodes, but got better and better and it's just a shame that there were only 8 episodes in series 1. It left us really wanting more!
I read that the show has just started a second series on TV in the US, so hopefully there will be more episodes to enjoy this year and roll on the release of series 2 on DVD so that we can enjoy it here in the UK too!
Well done Bill.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty good show May 22, 2008
This show is surprisingly good. The 8 episodes here feature some pretty original stories and solid writing. Engvall and Nancy Travis make for interesting if somewhat standard TV parents. The kids are your standard TV smart alecs but not as annoyingly so as most. The supporting cast, however, is less than good.
This is a fun little family friendly show and better than most sitcoms on TV these days

Great show.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not Enough of a Good Thing September 27, 2009
Verified Purchase
It's too bad Bill Engvall's show has been canceled! This was one of the rare sitcoms our family of four could watch together and everybody enjoyed it: parents, 10 year old, and 14 year old kids. The cast was strong and kept things relatively clean AND it was funny! It's a sad commentary on our society when everything -- and I mean everything -- these days is an "unscripted" show because they're so much cheaper to make. Now we get served up 5 nights a week of Jay Leno in prime time? Give me a break! I agree with another reviewer that this was at least one show I didn't have to cover my kids eyes to watch all the way through. Shame on the network for giving up on it too soon! And please release the second season before my kids go to college (which is a not-too-subtle hint that there is a strong market for shows like this and others like it -- e.g., "Family Matters" which has yet to see the light of day on DVD and may not for another 20 years).

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome November 8, 2012

Bought this for my friend and I to watch.
It's a pretty funny show.

Unlike all the modern try-too-hard-to-be-funny shows,
Bill Engvall makes you laugh with simple humor.

As for the product itself, it arrived quickly with no issues.
Definitely recommend seller.

Was not sure what to expect with a series but love, love, love Bill Engvall. Never seen him in an acting role before, it took some getting use too and of course each character. But its a good show.

2.0 out of 5 stars A fun show, but a word of caution.
I like this show however, a word of caution. Some of the subject matter of this show is a bit racy for younger children. There is mention of adult subject matter in the series. Read more
