Customer Reviews

A goofy show but I loved it.
I think she's truly funny so almost anything she does I find humorous.
Mike Richards
The show is funny, and the cast is perfect.

The first disc features an audio commentary on "Bored of the Rings" by Laura and Sarah Silverman. They spend too much time watching the episode and not enough time commenting on it. When they do, they point out all of their friends in the supporting roles.

There is a commentary on "Face Wars" by Laura Silverman and Jay Johnston. Again, there is more watching than commentating. They spend most of the time complimenting the performances in this episode.

Sarah and Laura return for the commentary on "Doody." More of the same boring comments. There is an additional commentary by director Rob Schrab and head writer Daniel Sterling. They point out that this episode is the sequel to "Officer Jay" from Season 1. This is easily the chattiest track as the two men enthusiastically dish anecdotes of working on this episode. These guys are funny and informative.

There is a commentary on "Ah, Men" by Brian Posehn and Steve Agee. They point out their friends and co-workers on this disappointing track. There is an additional commentary featuring Schrab and Sterling. They point out that this is the sequel to the Pilot episode. They were never interested in having Sarah's character have a boyfriend because so many other sitcoms do that. This is another funny and informative track.

Finally, Brian and Steve deliver another dull commentary for "Maid to Border."

Disc two starts off with "2007 Comic Con," which features footage of a Q&A session for the cast of the show, moderated by comedian Zach Galifianakis who starts off with some amusing introductions. This is as chaotic and funny as you'd expect as the cast make fun of each other. This is easily the most entertaining and hilarious extra in the set.

I've been anticipating this since the release of the first season, as some of the finest episodes of Sarah Silverman's show to date are in this collection. The "volume 1" on the box signifies the hault in production the show underwent during the Writer's Guild of America strike during late '07 to early '08. Comedy Central has begun airing commercials for new episodes on 10/16/08, and this dvd's cover suggests they will be considered part of season 2 aswell.

I don't see the episodes listed, so for those curious, this should contain:

1."Bored of the Rings" - Sarah joins a pro-life group and Brian plays dungeon master in a 20 year long D&D campaign.
2."Joan of Arf" - Sarah tries to regain custody of Doug after she is seen licking his hind-quarters in a public park while Steve confronts Brian's fear of marriage.
3."Face Wars" - Responding to her prohibitance from entering a private tennis club, Sarah switches races with a black man to see who struggles more.
4."Doodie" - In an attempt to replace their mother's tombstone, the Silverman sisters compete with the Mustangs on their favorite show: Cooke Party.
5."Ah, Men" - After seeing him around the neighborhood, Sarah decides to give God a serious shot at a relationship and takes him to her high school reunion.
6."Maid to Border aka Brian's Song" - Steve learns his metal junkie boyfriend's ipod holds one song: "Two Princes". Sarah treks to Mexico to rehire her maid and Laura discovers her boyfriend's goofy one man show.

The 1st season of the SSS was so characteristically Sarah, so self centered, so irreverent, so funny, AND had great rhythm and character development. The 2nd season failed to live up to expectations, emphasizing more generalized juvenile bodily fluid and function humour, and less tangential Sarah-ness. As well, the 1st season was more A line focused, while the 2nd season offers a weaker, more diluted balance between A and B story. I still love the characters, but the writing is not as effective, the use of song almost disappeared. The 1st season is a great, shared in-joke. The 2nd season is different: more of a voyeuristic view into Valley Village: it's less personal, less witty, less funny. The SSS is still very sarah, and this is what we love about the show in the first place, but season 2 may have too many writers, too many contributors, or may have lost the feel of creating greatness on a small comedy budget....

THE SARAH SILVERMAN PROGRAM is without any question one of the most wildly inconsistent shows in the history of TV. There are episodes that are so funny that I think I'll injure myself laughing. But there are other episodes -- usually episodes with a high "ick" factor -- where I not only don't crack a smile, but moan and groan. This was one of the latter. The show revolves around Sarah's violating taboos of one sort or another. The previous episode was incredibly funny, as Sarah joins the campaign against baby killing without realizing that that was what the others were calling abortion (when Sarah realizes her mistake she quickly pulls out, stating to the others that she had had a couple of abortions herself and couldn't oppose it now because at some point she might need another). But licking a part of a dog's anatomy isn't at all funny. It is just icky. And usually when Sarah Silverman gets into mere ickiness instead of human moral debates, she gets unfunny.

In the "Where do I know them from" category, the man in rehab for dropping cats out of windows was played by Ken Marino, who has been in a host of TV roles, most recently as a recurring character on VERONICA MARS as Detective Vinnie Van Lowe.

All in all, I would stronlgy recommend a skip on this episode. Rewatch the season premiere instead.

On the upside, with this episode the series continues with its tradition of doing shows that no other show in the history of TV either has or would dream of touching. As if that were necessarily a good thing. This remains the show on TV I'm most ambivalent about. It can be either one of the funniest or one of the worst shows on TV. On the upside, if you hated one episode, wait a week and you'll find something to love; on the downside, if you loved it this week, you may feel differently about the next episode.
