5.0 out of 5 stars A true television classic, July 16, 2005
"Maude" was the archetypal topical early 70s sitcom. Arguably even more daring and controversial than its parent sitcom "All in the Family," "Maude" took on all manner of sacred cows. Even though the character of Maude was reportedly based on Norman Lear's own wife, Frances, and even though most of the people behind the show were almost certainly politically liberal themselves, the program happily made fun of liberal, especially "limosuine liberal," excesses of the era. As well the show explored so many other controversial topics, almost a laundry list of previosuly-taboo-on-television topics.

I'm not sure why this show, considering the financial successes of other topical-sitcom DVDs releases, has not yet been released on DVD. Perhaps the people who own the rights think it's too obscure, too dated with all the 70s references? Well, let me tell you, IT WILL SELL!! Please release this one too, guys! Many of us have very fond memories of "Maude," and you will see a return on your money if you release it. Plus, Bea Arthur is a gay icon and many gay men will buy the DVD just for that fact alone.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hugely funny - you'll watch it over and over again, August 24, 2004
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
"Da Ali G Show" is a wildly inventive, hugely entertaining, massively funny series. Other people have described it on here (and he's gotten enough press that even us HBO-less North Americans should have already had at least a rough idea of what it's like), but watching the program play out is such a treat. Ali G is a great character, but my personal favorite is Bruno - the flaky Austrian fashion reporter. His trip to Alabama is the stuff of legend. His interviews with the fashionistas are wonderfully hilarious (and his subjects jaw-droppingly dumb). Any fan of true comedy - that is, stuff that actually makes you laugh - needs to own this DVD. Respect.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb French rap, March 23, 2004
This review is from: Cinquieme As (Audio CD)
It is not necessary to understand a word of French to appreciate the music on this CD. MC Solaar is a formidable talent, and nearly all of the songs on this CD have infectious rhymes, elegant phrasings, and are utterly listenable. Perhaps the ultimate album of French rap.
