Editorial Reviews

Mr. Show: The Complete Collection (DVD)

If you want comedy on the edge and out of control, Mr. Show with Bob and Dave is the show for you! It's the late-night series that pays homage to the sketch-comedy tradition of Monty Python and Saturday Night Live, then launches into it's own eccentric orbit of social deviance and political incorrectness.

In Australia we're very backwards in non-mainstream comedies. One such standout comedy I believe, with mixed reviews, is Tom Goes To The Mayor. Which I think is brilliant. When watching the show I always wondered who is Bob Odenkirk and why he keeps on popping up in the show. When listening to the commentry I found out about Mr Show.

I watched a couple skits on Youtube and they blew my socks off, especially two skits: Globochem and It's Insane, This Guys Taint.

After getting the box set watching every episode again, it's all gold with very few misses. It's a strange thing to see such a good American sketch show run for such a short time, almost as long as British counterparts. Which means very little recycled comedy and relativley low amount of misses.

It's a very adult comedy with the cast using almost every expletive under the sun with no beeps, another touch of realism. This is definatly a show the FCC would frown upon as every sketch pushed the boundries.

Well worth the purchase!

A quick tip for all readers: I love Amazon and everything, but Bestbuy.com is currently selling this DVD collection for the incredible price of $39.99, which is barely more expensive than purchasing a single season DVD. Take advantage before they realize it and hike the price way up.

Mr. Show was one of my favorite shows when it was on HBO. The comedy is so strange and eccentric that it stands in a class of its own. Individually, Bob Odenkirk is a very talented comedy writer and David Cross is an equally talented stand-up comedian. Together, these two comedic minds created a unique showcase of off-beat comedy sketches. This show also introduced the world to other comedic talents such as Jack Black, Sarah Silverman and Brian Posehn.

Getting all four seasons together is a great deal. You get to see how the show progressed and became more collected by the time they reached the 4th season. By that point, the comic duo had perfected their teaming and were shelling out some seriously memorable material.

Great show and a great DVD collection to have.

Mr. Show: The Complete Collection is a great sketch comedy show that goes beyond the traditional boundaries of the genre. This show is reminiscent of Monty Python's Flying Circus in its free flowing style, but is also ground-breaking in both structure and content. The skits often border on "stupid-humor" that can be easily enjoyed by those with a short-attention span. But when you peel back the layers, it is clear that there are deeper satirical meanings to many of those silly skits.

Bob Odenkirk and David Cross used their HBO show to push the boundaries of what was acceptable in humor and television. They brought significant writing chops with them, having written for SNL and the Ben Stiller show, and drawing on their connections with the Second City comedy troup. Some of the stars who get face time here include Jack Black, Sarah Silverman and Brian Posein.

For four seasons, they beat the odds and despite a terrible time slot (Monday's at midnight) gathered a cult following. While I never got to see much of the show while it was on TV, I was familiar with the show and I jumped at the chance to buy the complete set. I am really glad that I did.

This show is definitely not for everybody, but for those with open-minded experiemental taste in humor, it is well worth watching. No taboo is untouched, including sex, race and religion. So watching this show requires you to reserve judgement. However, be warned that there are plenty of parental advisories.

I love this show. My favourite sketch show of all time. So well done even from the very first episode. So forward thinking and intelligent yet not pretentious. I just wish HBO had let the to a few more seasons because I think by the third season they had really hit their stride. If you do not like this show at first. Do not worry it can be a grower for some. But in saying that though, everyone who I have played this to has instantly found this hilarious.

It's refreshing to see people who can make fun of everything and don't hold any prejudice against any one sect. These guys comedy holds no limits to who or what they target. A must have for anyone who loves realistic comedy. When I saw they were releasing all their seasons in one box set I was sold. If you haven't seem Mr. Show don't waste your time picking out one season at a time to see if your going to like it just buy the whole set because you will end up buying them all eventually. Comic genius's they guys are.

I love this stuff so madly.

My wife tried to get rid of our set by deliberately loaning them to a college student well known for irresponsibility.

I bought it again.

I was turned to this show by an ex girlfriend. I broke up with the girl but I loved the show/ Mr Show is much like Monty Python and SCTV in that their comedy went beyond joke driven short skits and into longer evolving storylines with their comedy. SCTV Network 90 had some comedy storylines (called runners) which spanned much of an entire hour. They even went so far as to do a soap oera spoof which last a full season and a half. Monty Python had entire episodes based on a single storyline or character (Dennis Moore, Bicycle Trip and my favorite (Science Fiction Sketch). Mr Show does not go that far with their sketches but they go into their comedy with the same approach.

While there is SNL alumni here, the SNL influence on the show does not really show itself. This show is an improvement on SNL mostly because it's tape and the writers have time to develop their ideas and the performers have time to really act their parts. SNL is written in a week and the performers are up there doing bits they learned within 72 hours. You have repeat characters but little else.

Mr. Show also is a freer show than SCTV and Monty Python in the sense that they really were not afraid to go very nearly too far in alot of their sketches (it helps that Mr Show was on cable too, Monty Python and most of SCTV was on network television). This puts Mr Show on par with The Kids in the Hall (the show Mr Show basically replaced on HBO after it was moved to NBC). They approach jumping over the line with tortured slave writing comedy skits, CS Lewis Jr (modeled after Hank Williams Jr) singing the praises of the USA on the brink of their plan to blow up the moon and of course the Titannica sketch but they manage to avoid crossing the line.

Finally, the performers are all good actors.
