This review is from: Tom Green: Inside and Outside the Box (DVD)
In my book, the original Tom Green Show on MTV was the single greatest show of all time. Call me "immature", but to me, nothing is funnier than Tom riding in the back of a rickshaw on a busy street, wearing a British soldier uniform, screaming into a megaphone "OOOOOOUUUH!!!! OOOOOOOOOOOOOUUUHHHH!!!!"
This mega set contains 3 packed discs, with 26 half-hour episodes of Tom's show on the Canadian "Comedy Central" equivalent, right before he went to MTV. While a lot of the clips were used on the MTV show, most of this stuff has never been seen by us Americans - including tons of in-studio stuff, with unsuspecting guests, Glenn Humplik(P.I.M.P), Phil Sher-ooo/Gear-Rocks/Giroux, and the poor studio audience. And holy (...)This is some of Tom's best! Tom was hungry, crazy, and had absolutley no fear back in these days - and it shows on this dvd set.
It's all here, from the "WHERE THE HELL ARE YOU GOIN???" guy, to the dead raccoon mascot, bags of milk, singing with drunk people, dead moose humping, Jim Cab TV, wanton chainsaw & baseball bat destruction, cow brains(!), Brad Pitt, more bags of milk, Humplik's ass, weirdo French-Canadians, the slutmobile, cow teet sucking, messing with foreigners/old people, a sh*tload of maniacal screaming(my favorite) and sooo much more.
Special features include:
Nearly one hour of unreleased material - cut scenes, longer takes, unreleased segments, ect
Commentary track by Tom on one episode - but it goes long, ending with Tom talking on camera aboot the show.
"A note from Tom" A written piece about the show by Tom.
It's a shame Tom has scaled down his on-screen persona in recent years, because watching this stuff I laughed so hard I almost threw up... Pure comedic genius here, folks.
Bottom line: If you liked Tom's original MTV show, then there is no need to ponder, you must own this. 9+ hours of insanity for (...)? Don't think, BUY IT!!!
