Product Description

Brak Show, The: Volume Two (DVD)

What happens when two adults get together and have children? And what if those children grow up and go to school? That's the just-crazy-enough-to-work premise behind "The Brak Show." Also, Brak is in it.

Amazon.com

The Brak Show Volume 2 compiles the final 14 episodes of this truly offbeat Cartoon Network series (2000-2004), which spun the dim-witted space pirate Brak from Cartoon Planet and Space Ghost: Coast to Coast into a very skewed sort of family sitcom, albeit one with aliens, killer robots, dissolute magicians, and an insectoid best friend who wants nothing more than to kill the star of the show. As in the first volume of The Brak Show, our hero (voiced by Andy Merrill) lives with his mom (Joanna Daniel, who replaced Marsha Crenshaw) and miniature dad (George Lowe) in a picture-perfect suburban town somewhere in deep space; this time around, Brak's adventures include entering a rap contest to win a trip to a spa resort ("Brak Street," with guest star Cee-Lo of Danger Mouse), discovering exactly what Dad does with his time ("We Ski in Peace"), and winning his own TV show in Japan ("Sexy New Brak Show Go"). It goes without saying that The Brak Show is an acquired taste for those that aren't already fanatical about Adult Swim titles, but for those that can roll with the surreal stories and humor, there are a lot of quirky laughs to be found here, especially from Merrill's performance as the slow-witted but eager Brak. Note to fans: the two-disc Volume 2 set includes no supplemental features (unlike the previous set), and also excludes the second-to-last episode, "New Year's Eve Party at Brak's House," which not only explained the future of the show's characters, but included guest appearances by the casts of Aqua Teen Hunger Force, Harvey Birdman: Attorney at Law, and Sealab 2021. --Paul Gaita

I love Brak. I used to tape all the episodes of Cartoon Planet (still far and away the funniest Brak stuff ever to be broadcast) and show it to my friends, who would fall on the floor laughing. I also loved early episodes of The Brak Show, with it's perfect dynamic of Brak, his Ricardo Montalban-meets- Desi Arnaz dad and June Cleaver mom (wonderfully voiced by Marsha Crenshaw). When the first Brak DVD came out, a lot of fans went straight for the extras and found, to our delight, a bunch of the hysterically funny stuff from Cartoon Planet. Great! Now, if only they would release a second volume with all the classic CP Brak stuff that wasn't included on the first DVD. And then...woah! We heard that a second volume would be released! General excitement filled the air for Brak fans everywhere (everytime I wear my Brak T-shirt, in any city or country, people give me the thumbs up as I walk by)and we all salivated over what would surely include more terrific extras, like volume one did. Now, given that Marsha Crenshaw had been replaced by someone with a completely unfunny (and generally reviled by fans) British accent, the extras would be the only thing that could possibly sell this second volume, but it was more than enough. And then, it arrived. Alas, no extras, no episodes with Marsha Crenshaw as Brak's mom, and a generally disappointing, if not depressing, DVD. Oh well, maybe Cartoon Network will someday release Cartoon Planet on DVD. They should, given that it was the funniest thing the network ever aired. Brak Volume 2 is one major, major missed opportunity.

No extras, missing the New Year's Eve Special, and there's really no reason this had to be on 2 DVD's. Especially disappointing considering how good Volume 1 was. Seems like it was just thrown together, and put out quickly to get the show out of Adult Swim's hair.

It goes without saying that the humor seen and heard on this show is an acquired taste. The second, and final, volume of Adult Swim's underrated The Brak Show is disappointing in terms of show quality and DVD features to boot. What made the episodes found on the first volume so good was the interplay between Brak (voiced by Andy Merrill) and Zorak; but sadly much of that gets downplayed here. Not to mention that the dry humor doesn't come off as funny a lot, instead only ending up being more miss than hit. That's not to say that there's not some funny moments popping up in every episode or so, and the voice work by Merrill, C. Martin Croker, and George Lowe, is spectacular as usual. What's even more disappointing about this DVD set is that there are no special features whatsoever included on either disc of the set. Now I know that Adult Swim DVD's are usually sparse on extras, but this is ridiculous. Not to mention that the New Years Eve episode, which was one of the best from the series and included many characters from other shows in the Adult Swim lineup, isn't here at all either. If you're a die hard Brak fan, and I mean die hard, this is worth picking up; otherwise, leave this on the shelf.

The Brak Show, one of my top 20 favorite shows of all time, is back on DVD with the 2nd (and final) DVD collection. I just got this the day after the release date (I was going to get this on the day it came out but the store didn't have it), and I just watched everyone of the episodes. It was a great show with great characters and memorable episodes. The one thing that I (unfortunately finally) noticed was that Brak's mom had 2 voice actors. Sadly, the 1st one left and was replaced by another person with a heavy british accent. Not only that, but also she says things that a British person would say that the other one would never say at all, like wanker or I will shove your arm up your bum. I found that to be odd. Anyway that wasn't the bad thing. The bad thing with this DVD collection is that there are absolutly NO (I repeat) NO special features at all (and subtitles and languages do not count). I find that very bizarre in any DVD period because usually every DVD that I saw always came with some special feature (even if it's teaser trailers theatrical trailers, etc.) I forgot to mention that there is a episode that was the real final episode that didn't appear either on TV or on this DVD collection. It was basically a party with other Adult Swim characters (like the Aqua Teen Hunger Force characters, Sealab 2021 characters, etc.). A good buy for Brak fans, but just remember that you have just episodes and subtitles/languages and that's it!

An often very funny, absurdist take on the family sit-com. but in this case the lead is… well I guess
an adolescent cat-headed space alien? His father is a self-obsessed, vaguely insane, quietly
indolent diminutive Hispanic human, sort of Desi Arnez on acid (the funniest element of the show
to me), and his mother the same strange ‘thing’ that Brak is.

Not every joke works, but this is a very entertaining, surreal twist on every bad ‘Leave It To Beaver’
type family TV comedy. For me it takes a big leap between season 1, which was funny and weird
to seasons two and three where it attained almost Monty Python like levels of complete nonsensical,
hysterically funny strangeness. In tossing out any attempt to make sense, and allowing all the rules
go out the window, you end up with something you might have had if Dali and Bunuel had made a
cartoon together as teenagers. (Note, I seem to be in the minority, most people prefer the earlier,
lighter, less perverse version of the show).

I do understand the frustration with the lack of extras expressed by many here, but when
something makes me laugh out loud this much, I can put up with a less than stellar presentation.
