Editorial Reviews

From a local "zine" in New Jersey to a national probing of the bizarre, the unexplained, and the really strange, two friends named Mark host the oddest travel show this side of freaky.

Presented by THE HISTORY CHANNEL(r), WEIRD U.S.: VOLUME 1 takes an unforgettable side trip into the weirdest nooks and crannies of American history. Hilarious, wacky, and sometimes plain disturbing, WEIRD U.S. explores stories about mysterious wallets made out of human skin to retirement communities for sideshow performers to graveyard getaways near the swamplands of New Orleans. From sea to shining sea, starring a cast of characters between ghostly and surreal, this is adventure too weird for words.

Based on the best-selling book, WEIRD U.S.: VOLUME 1 features the pilot episode "Strange But True" and the premiere episode "Road To Weirdsville."

5.0 out of 5 stars I Love The Weird US DVD Series! October 29, 2009
Mark & Mark are hilarious and entertaining! This DVD along with their other DVD's and Weird US books are informative and awesome. You learn a lot about those secret hidden places and strange and unusual things. Its a combination of Twilight Zone, Ripley's Believe it Or Not,and X-files all rolled up into great show. I had a lot of fun discovering many of the weird things they have discussed in their weird Texas book recently! I hope they keep making more DVDs.

This is Volume number one in a three-part collection. It MIGHT sound weird,
but if you are weird like ME, and like collecting weird things... there're
WEIRDER things you could collect... I just cannot think of anything weirder
than these video-tidbits -- and pieces -- from across the country... WEIRD!

1.0 out of 5 stars Little Weirdness; Alot of Incompetence March 13, 2006
Two shows here: "Strange But True"& "Road To Weirdsville". The first show has, I think, four stories. I won't waste time giving a synopses of each one. I'll just say that the worst episode of "Ripley's Believe It Or Not" or any other show of that nature would tower above this. The stories are not strange and are not particularly interesting. In the second show, hosts Mark & Mark travel to various cities in the U.S. in search of the weird. I don't think that anything they found can qualify as weird. Whatever they found that was of any interest such as the miniature White House in Florida or archival film footage and history of Coney Island was completely ruined by the incompetence of Mark & Mark. Just when I was getting interested in the subject matter, there pops up one or the other making lame quips and mugging for the camera.
