get over it, this is a tv comedy series (and a very good one at that) not a porno
you won't see any nudity on these dvd's (as it was not shown on the tv show) nor will you with any future releases

Yet the Osbournes had a Censored version (which was what we saw on tv) and an uncensored version.

So why not an uncensored "Man Show"?

Well firstly, that's MTV and Man Show is Comedy Central. Secondly, Osbournes only had uncensored audio, as the Man Show does apparently. From what I recall, the Osbournes still had the visual stuff blurred out. (However, I could be wrong, cause I would never look for this to begin with)

I really don't understand what the big deal is here. Are you buying this for it's entertainment value, or for nudity?

Correct. And, my joking comment earlier in this thread about what's under the logo aside, I love this show for the comedy. If I want to see naked girls, I'll buy an adult DVD (which I have zero of in my collection). IMO the great thing about this show is the sophomoric humor. Having uncensored audio is enough of a plus for me. Mine's already shipped from the e-tailer from which I ordered it. Can't wait.

Well, as I said earlier, the entertainment value of this show was very hit or miss for me, and everytime they blurred something out, I was always irritated and felt the 'entertainment value' of that episode dropped. I always looked forward to a dvd release so that I could get away from Comedy Central's stupid censorship (they censor the films they show too, but I sure as hell wouldn't buy dvds of their versions of those films) and a more entertaining show.

It's their choice to retain the censorship, and my choice not to buy it, which I won't. It's your choice to buy it, which you will. Enjoy the show, while I enjoy spending that money on something uncensored and funnier. Posted Image

I'm with you. Of course, I'm not a huge fan of the show, so uncensoring the nudity would be the one little thing that pushed me over the hump to buy it.

Yes they did, but you were able to see the fully uncensored Ozzy butt in the extras! Posted Image

Well, maybe that's NOT a good thing Posted Image But having the unblurred nudity of the man show DVD would be a start.

The difference being Insomniac was released by Comedy Central Home Video. The Man Show isn't, it's being released by Red Distribution, I think, is the name of the company.

Scott, I'm not trying to sound like a smart-ass (I just didn't understand what your post means), but what's the difference? Why would it matter who released it?

Mark, I'm saying that Comedy Central may be more apt to release a show uncensored on DVD than the company that's releasing the Man Show. Both of the shows AIR on Comedy Central, but the fact they're being released on DVD by different companies could have something to do with one being censored and not the other.

Comedy Central already has a stake in the DVD. The DVD is distributed by Eagle Vision in cooperation with Comedy Central and Stone Stanley Entertainment, the latter being the production company. The DVD carries the imprint of all three companies. Since Stone Stanley, the company that actually produces the show for Comedy Central, is involved, one assumes that the DVD presentation has been done according to its wishes.

I wonder if they will have the uncensored version of the basketball game against the twins?

It's strange that some posters here turn their noses up at those Man Show fans who want an uncensored release. It's not like we're asking for some sort of Sesame Street Uncensored release. The Man Show is all about guy humor and guy fantasies, of which naked women comprise almost 100%.
That's what the Man Show taps into, and being uncensored is what it's really all about. Censored video is disappointing, especially from their taped skits in studio.
By the way, does anybody know who the new hosts of the show are?
Have you ever heard of Vietnam, Larry?

I don't think when the twins played strip basketball they thought they would ever be shown on tv uncensored. I'm not "turning my nose up" at it, I would love to see it, I just understand why it may not be uncensored.

I will post what I just posed in the 'Coupons and Bargins' forum's 'Weekly Roundup' thread just to set the record straight

Quote:
* For those of you interested in The Man Show: Be aware that this is EXACTLY the same as the television presentation. Nothing uncensored here, not even the cover (when you slide off the bellyband it reveals crossed arms over the goodies).


Completely FALSE AND INNACURATE statement...

having just gone through the whole set...from what I saw and heard the show does not have any of the profanity bleeped out

as far as blurring effects on body parts
here is what you are missing....

Disc 1 Episode 102 ...unattractive girl on the street who stips down naked has face and private parts blocked out during Jimmy Kimmel's "Will You Have Sex With Me" man on the street segment ***
(repeated on Disc 3 episode 110 Best Of Episode)


Disc 2 Episode 109 ...Star Wars geeks faces are blurred out at Phantom Menace opening ***
Episode 106 ...Adam's privates are blurred out when he gets naked in front of his mom on the beach in the night of romance with mom segment
(repeated on Disc 3 episode 110 Best Of Episode)

*** both incidents most likely having to do with legal clearance issues

Like I have said before in other threads on this forum, this show is about comedy and not nudity (if you are looking for that there are many better sources). Let me be perfectly clear on this, this package does not compromise anything unless of course you are a huge fan of seeing Adam naked from the bottom down when in reality I'm sure he was covered under the blurring effect. If you have a case to make about censorship your time and effort would be better spent somewhere else.

Has it occurred to you that perhaps the creators of the show actually never intended for the nudity to be "uncensored" in the same way that the swearing is deliberatly bleeped in South Park? Perhaps Comedy Central is prohibited from unblurring the nudity by contractual arrangement with the women involved?

My apologies, I was basing what I said on YOUR Post, which said:

get over it, this is a tv comedy series (and a very good one at that) not a porno
you won't see any nudity on these dvd's (as it was not shown on the tv show) nor will you with any future releases

I didn't think about the audio (and missed a prior post in the same thread that mentioned the audio was uncensored). I was trying to help your cause, Mat, by getting people to think about purchasing the set for enjoying it the way it was broadcast, and not hold out hope for seeing something different. Plenty of Playboy releases on DVD if they want that.

If I ruffled your feathers in the process (and I clearly have), I apologize. I'm a little cheeked, though, that you "fired back" quite so hard. It's hardly a "completely false and inaccurate statement"; the only part of it that was wrong is, in fact, about the audio. Correct? I'm basing that on your own post, the one that I'm responding to. If I'm wrong, it's because you're not being clear.

I should be equally clear in that I've never seen the show (not having cable/satellite), and had no intention of buying the set (having spent too much money on other DVDs recently already). Not a lack of interest...just not willing to spend money blindly when I have little to spare.

If you're a fan of this show's broadcasts and have $17.99 to spare at Best Buy, I encourage you to pick this up.
