The DVD release is a show hosted by comedian/musician Demetri Martin. In February 2009, "Important Things with Demetri Martin" scored Comedy Central's most watched premiere for the network with 2.4 million total viewers since 2003 ("Chappelle's Show" drew 2.5 million).

The DVD itself is good quality for the most part. There are only seven episodes - the first season really was this short - but the price is right for them. There is a feast of great deleted scenes and sketches, generally entertaining and candid commentaries on four episodes and one deleted sketch (Demetri plays guitar through one of them), and a few amusing charts made by Martin that show his strange thought process in the process of making the show. The menus are sometimes a bit slow, but the aesthetic fits well with the show and uses the music from it well.Read more ›
