Almost if by force of habit we expect a punch line at this point. It doesn't come. Our minds reel as the plot is pulled from beneath our taught fingers. No climax, no story development, no comfort lead in music. Shortly thereafter you realize you are only invited to participate in the haphazard denouement of this story - you are riding the thing down into the glorious and hilarious catastrophe that it was meant to be.
As we let the show aspirate, we can detect notes of dark comedy and satire on commonplace social norms. The sketches are often full bodied and rely on tongue-in-cheek jabs at poorly executed social posturing (Strategies in Leadership, Carol and her Boss) or the miserable failings of those with little savvy (Casey and his Brother, Shopping Indoors). This show is a big cab with strong hints of spite. Good to enjoy now or a few years down the road. Although much like a good bottle of Monty Python, Tim and Eric will only get better with age. If neither suit your taste, I'm sure a bottle of Who's the Boss Zinfandel would suffice.
There's more than meets the eye with this show, if you know where to look. Chances are, if you don't, Tim and Eric are probably making fun of you.
The DVD doesnt get old the work is dense in a good way and new things appear in it on every rewatching. When I am watching some completely retarded infomercial or tv show on the tube. I sometimes just start laughing as I realize how absurd the whole thing is as something from Tim and Eric pops into my head.
Some bits dont work 100% but I give them 5*'s anyway for putting it all out there.
I'm in the former camp. I think it's some of the most adventurous, weird, and somewhat off-putting comedy I have ever seen. It sometimes makes me cringe, and sometimes makes me scratch my head, but I'm always laughing. Tim and Eric have somehow made an art out of the comedy of the cutting room floor. It all looks spontaneous and random, but I feel like behind the scenes, there is a strict adherence to this aesthetic of making sure that their show always looks like amateur hour. The quick cuts and the odd freeze frames only add to this feeling. Still, despite how amateur it looks, it's clear that it's intentional and done for comic effect.
It's hard to compare them to any other comedy. What they do is pretty unique, and hopefully they'll keep it up for a long time.
The things that make these DVD are the commentary and other behind the scenes clips. Never before have I heard commentary from a Adult Swim DVD that was actually worth listening to. There was information about the show! They explained stories and reasons for certain things which is what commentary is supposed to be. Not some one shredding on a guitar for the whole commentary track. (ATHF)
To the gentlemen who talked about John C. Riley and how this show could ruin his career, bad comment dude. No class.

Don't buy this if you don't know what TIm and Eric is...because the show is very hit or miss. But if you already love it, you're obviously going to love this ridiculous DVD.Published 16 months ago by krans
