These people took risks and produced this unusual, exciting and very funny first season. So many laugh out loud moments from strange concepts that come together and really pay off. Every episode is unique. Excellent features as well. The included pilot episode was obviously shot on a smaller budget and some scenes were in front of a live audience which was never the case on the aired episodes. The commentary style varies, for the episodes that include it, from informal "rappin' 'n' riffin'" in front of a live audience that is watching the episodes with them to intimate studio-recorded analysis, but all the commentary is fun and informative. If you are ever in New York City on a Sunday night, come by their theatre and some of the four UCB members and friends will do improv for you. That's like an extra extra feature. The current address and phone number of The Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre is right on the DVD box. If you haven't seen the "Little Donny" episode then your money is well spent for that alone. People really love that episode. So will you.\r\n\r\nI don't see the features listed on the Amazon copy so here they are:\r\n-The complete first season: "Bucket of Truth", "Poo Stick", "Saigon Suicide Show", "Power Marketing", "Children's Revolution", "Story of the Toad", "Lady of the Lake", "Time Machine", "Cyborgs", and "The Little Donny Foundation".\r\n-Exclusive commentary for pilot episode and the "Cyborgs" epsiode recorded in front of a live audience at the UCB Theater, followed by a Q & A session. \r\n-Audio commentary for "The Bucket of Truth", "Power Marketing","Time Machine" and "The Little Donny Foundation". \r\n-Alternate audio commentary for "The Little Donny Foundation" episode by Little Donny and his parents. \r\n-UCB pilot episode \r\n-Deleted Scene "Highland Epoxy". \r\n-Original live versions of "Little Donny" and the "Andre the Giant" Song. \r\n-Original UCB Trailers.

When this show first started, I absolutely loved it and was sad when the series ended. Years later I remembered that this show existed and was super excited that I was able to find... Read morePublished 3 months ago by Tya Collier
I checked this out because I loved Amy's work on SNL and Parks and Rec. She's just adorable! The whole UCB group and their show is just amazing. Great show!Published 7 months ago by keith miller
Like any sketch comedy, there will be some very funny stuff and some very dumb stuff. So this DVD is a mix of both. It's sort of a more out there Monty Python.Published 7 months ago by penname
Another quality, nostalgic skit show that was cut too early. UCB had a unique method of delivering it's skits and it worked to perfection most of the time. Read morePublished 9 months ago by Scott
