Product Description

Sketch comedy show revolves around the Upright Citizens Brigade, an underground organization "with no government ties and unlimited resources" dedicated to creating and monitoring chaos from their secure underground base. The show

Amazon.com

Their enemy is the status quo. Their only friend is chaos. They're the four sketch comedians of the Upright Citizens Brigade. In their second season on Comedy Central, Colby (Amy Poehler), Antoine (Ian Roberts), Trotter (Matt Walsh), and Adair (Matt Besser) aim their comedic throwing stars at all manner of pseudo-realistic targets, like suburban baby fighting and that sweet, powdery addiction known as Super Cool. (Sometimes they hit, sometimes they miss.) Viewers craving subtlety and nuance may want to look elsewhere. The acting ranges from broad to broader, but the situations are consistently inventive--if not brain-twistingly bizarre.

Standout installments include "Infested with Friars," a spoof of Eisenhower-era humor, and "Mogomra vs. the Fart Monster," a goof on Japanese pop culture, from noise rock to creature features (Mogomra is a giant lobster). Every episode also incorporates hidden camera encounters with the real world. "Didn't I once sell you crack?" for instance, doesn't garner any takers when directed at a gaggle of lawyers. Among the guest stars are the Wu-Tang Clan's RZA ("Bomb Squad") and Poehler's former SNL cast mates Tina Fey ("Mogomra") and Horatio Sanz ("Spaghetti Jesus," an episode bursting with excretory functions). Further, Upright Citizens Brigade served as a training ground for future movie directors, like Bring It On's Peyton Reed and Junebug's Phil Morrison.

The plentiful extras on this two-disc set include deleted scenes, early stage routines, an audience Q&A, and uncensored commentary on all 10 episodes (the commentary for "Spaghetti Jesus" and "Super Cool" was recorded live at the UCB Theater). Despite the parental advisory regarding "explicit content," most episode profanity has been bleeped, though the material still easily qualifies as "adult" (sexual situations, drug references, etc.). -- Kathleen C. Fennessy

It has been a long time coming, but it looks like we UCB fans finally win out, and get the next season. Who else has had the first season for years, hoping and praying that the good folks at Comedy Central would release from bondage the now practically "lost episodes"? The UCB is the closest thing the U.S. has to a pure sketch comedy group, and UCB is up there in brilliance with the Kids In The Hall, and dare I say it, possibly even Monty Python. High praise I know, but the Brigade deserve it. I can't wait for the release. Intelligent comedy and satire up there with the best.

After all these years of waiting I didn't think anything could lessen the impact of this set's final release, but somehow, Comedy Central still managed to cheapen it for me. From the "Drawn Together" commercials you can't skip through (hasn't Dave Chapelle already sold enough DVDs for you guys?) to the grainy, interlaced video (no, I'm not talking about the hidden camera footage interspersed with the sketches), it seems like this was a project they just couldn't get done quickly or cheaply enough. I suppose I shouldn't be surprised considering the way they've treated the show from day one, but I was hoping they'd finally seen the value of the work they continually let slip away and die in favor of Carlos Mencia and Blue Collar TV. No such luck.

I was thrilled to find two seasons of UCB on DVD. Yes, season one is better than two, but they both have priceless moments. I'm only writing this review to demand season three! Where is season three??? Why do you treat fans like this, Comedy Central?

If you enjoyed the old "SCTV" show, you will enjoy the Upright Citizen's Brigade." Both comedy series' have that original, slightly warped vibe and wonderfully talented performers. Loved it.

When this show first started, I absolutely loved it and was sad when the series ended. Years later I remembered that this show existed and was super excited that I was able to find both seasons on dvd. I watched them right away but was disappointed to discover that my memory of the series was funnier than the actuality. As far a random comedy skits go, this is pretty darn funny but if you're not familiar with the show, you may not enjoy it.

Once again, this is sketch comedy that borders on the ridiculous. But, it's pretty funny at times other times kinda dumb, but they take chances and stretch comedy to it's borders. I love Amy Poelher, she is so good. It's always interesting.

Great show, with some classic episodes in this season. Some decent special features and commentary.

But the video quality is absolutely terrible. I'm not sure how they managed to churn something out like this. Season 3 is out on Amazon DVD-R on demand and even that looks much, much better than this season.

Edit: It's actually interesting. It's not simply over-compression from trying to squeeze bonus material on the discs or anything. There are clips here and there (including all the intros) which have no grain at all. Rather, it seems to be a problem with the transfer from the master tapes. Or, perhaps the masters themselves weren't even available.

For instance, in episode 3, there are some scenes at the UCB headquarters, toward the end, that look fine. But other scenes in that episode are, without exaggeration, some of the worst mastering I've ever seen on a DVD. Does anyone have more information on what might have happened with this release?
