Editorial Reviews

Crass, narcissistic, and utterly oblivious to the pain, suffering, or even the reality of anyone outside of herself, Sarah Silverman--a character played by sly hipster comedienne Sarah Silverman (the standout in a crowded field of comedians in The Aristocrats)--tops the characters of Seinfeld for dizzying comic insufferability. In the six episodes of The Sarah Silverman Program, Silverman goes on a cough-syrup-hallucination-fueled car ride, takes in a homeless man to prove her humanitarianism, founds an AIDS charity on the possibility that she might have AIDS, shepherds a little girl (the outstanding Laura Marano, Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader?) through the child beauty pageant that she lost in her own youth, explores lesbianism, and goes out for batteries. Every scenario, simple or absurd, is crammed thick with deranged (yet uncomfortably real) behavior and over-the-top turns (such as when Silverman, having had an unfortunate moment while trying to pass gas, has her prayers answered by God...with whom she then has a one-night stand). The supporting cast (including Silverman's sister Laura Silverman, Jay Johnston, Steve Agee, and Brian Posehn) all have their own appalling moments, which they execute with aplomb. Silverman's humor offends some while inspiring rabid devotion in others. It's best to know what you're getting into before you watch it; jokes about abortion, homosexuality, terminal illness, and scatology abound, delivered with unrepentant enthusiasm and outright joy. Silverman, for all her taboo-breaking, just wants to make the world a funnier place. For her fans, she has succeeded. The Sarah Silverman Program - Season One has some splendid extras, including an abundance of extra songs, karaoke sing-alongs, alternate versions of the show's intro, and garrulous commentaries. --Bret Fetzer

Product Description

Sarah Silverman says what’s on her mind. And no one else’s. In this first season of the critically acclaimed The Sarah Silverman Program, Sarah gets hepped up on cough syrup, takes in a homeless man and poops her pants. With her unique perspective on life and her ability to turn just about everything into a song, find out why Sarah Silverman is an American treasure. An offensive, filthy-mouthed treasure.

Format:DVD
It is impossible to watch this show without some kind of strong reaction. There were times watching this show that I laughed as hard as I have laughed at anything I've seen in recent years. But there were also times when I was simply appalled at how unfunny and in bad taste some parts were, as if the point had ceased being to make us laugh and had become to shock and dismay us. There are many moments when I am simply blown away by the brilliance and originality of Silverman's comic vision and times when I wonder if she has any conception of what is funny and what is not.

This is definitely not a show for everyone and it has nothing to do with how well one's sense of humor is developed. There are simply a lot of absolutely terrible moments in these episodes to go along with some hysterically funny ones. If you can filter out or ignore the bad and merely focus on the good, this is a show you will either partially enjoy or consider a masterpiece. But if you can't filter out the bad or if you obsess over the bad to a degree where you can't appreciate the genuinely funny bits, then you could well consider this to be one of worst shows ever concocted.

I especially loved the initial episode, where Sarah buys some cough syrup that has a decided effect on her perception of reality. That episode -- and especially Sarah's self-absorption that is so extreme that she almost obtains a childlike innocence -- reminds me very much of the balance that Paul Reubens was able to strike in PEE WEE'S PLAYHOUSE. Unfortunately, she is not able to maintain that balance through the rest of the series. I did not enjoy any subsequent episode as much as that one, though the one in which she thought she was dying of AIDS came close. Here is a bit that presents the show at its best.

4.0 out of 5 stars I love Tab July 17, 2007
Format:DVD
A hit and miss affair at some points, but when it hits, it hits solid. The Sarah Takes in a Homeless Guy episode and the Sarah Becomes a Lesbian episode are highlights. Can't wait to see the second season. Oh, and maybe you should watch the show if you think she's in any way trying to be Seinfeld.

5.0 out of 5 stars The funniest 30 minutes on television July 23, 2007
Format:DVD
I've always found Sarah Silverman to be a pretty funny person, and was looking forward to checking out her new show when I saw that it was coming to Comedy Central. From the very first episode, I was hooked. Her show is unlike anything else on television with regard to format, content, style and humor. Each show of this first season was a winner and I'm anxiously awaiting my DVD set to arrive so I can have a Sarah-thon.

Of course, the star of the show is Sarah, who has a sense of humor unlike anyone else. The girl just ain't hooked-up right, and I mean that in the nicest possible way. The rest of the cast is very strong also, and each member of the cast brings something special to the show. Her sister, her "gay-bors," her sister's boyfriend...all are excellently cast and very well-played.

Definitely check out "The Sarah Silverman Program." Thank me later.

4.0 out of 5 stars Perhaps the best comedy since "Sunny in Philly" July 17, 2007
Format:DVD
I heard the buzz about this show and Tivo'd it a few weeks ago. Now I'm addicted. If you enjoy tasteless, no holes barred comedy that will make you squirm in your seat and fall on the floor laughing, this show is right up your alley. The show has nothing in common with Seinfeld other than both are sitcoms and very funny - for totally different reasons. TSSP is more akin to 'It's Always Sunny in Philly' than anything else on the air right now. For that reason alone, it's worth checking out.

5.0 out of 5 stars This Show Is Unbelievable and Indescribable November 18, 2008
Format:DVD
I'm not sure whether Sarah Silverman is completely without taste, or has a sort of perverse anti-taste. Sometimes juvenile and offensive, frequently brilliant, usually hilarious, it's hard to know what to say about this program.

The show leaves me disturbed. Disturbed at US America, that it's taste has fallen so low. Disturbed about my wife, who loves it. And disturbed about me, because I like it so much and wouldn't miss an episode. There's definitely something wrong with me for enjoying this stuff so much.

If in doubt after reading the reviews, catch an episode on TV, or rent a disc or something, because I don't like hate mail saying 'You talked me into wasting money on this fertilizer? I hate you, I hate you, die, die, die!!' But if you like it, you'll probably like it an awful lot. Pun intentional.

5.0 out of 5 stars Unique blend of comedy... September 17, 2008
By Ryan
Format:DVD
From the comedy of Sarah Silverman comes this Comedy-Central series. This Season 1 DVD contains a great mix of dark comedy, silly/goofy humor, sarcasm, satire, toilet humor, and clever quips. The disadvantage of the Season 1 DVD is there are only 6 episodes on it. Since this is currently the only season available it has left me craving for more, so I simply re-watch these 6 episodes. Can't wait for the release of Season 2.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hilarious!!!! November 5, 2007
Format:DVD
I doubt if very many people will get Sarah's sick and twisted humor but I love it!!! Every episode has me laughing out loud, especially at her "life lessons" she shares with us at the end of every show, which are derived from her selfish, narcissistic perspective, and have nothing to do with what she should have learned. The cast is stellar, including the bear neighbors, her semi-stable sister and her boyfriend, and of course, Doug.
