    Now I'd love to see The Kids in the HAll on DVD, but there are two other shows that I'd love to own which I think are two of the most under-rated shows in TV history:

    The State

    and

    The Upright Citizens Brigade

    Am I the only one that loves these shows?

    Will we ever see these on DVD?

    Joel thank you. I didn't know that they were coming before now. I definitely want to go to that.

    I loved both those shows and would definitely like to see them on DVD. I'm still mad that UCB was cancelled. Just another reason to hate "Comedy" Central! [​IMG]
    At least we have Mr. Show DVDs to look forward to.

    Nathan,
    If you didn't know, Mr. Show is coming on June 11th from HBO. http://www.tvshowsondvd.com/releasei...ReleaseID=1030
    And as for Kids in the Hall...I'm seeing them tomorrow! 12th row [​IMG] I'll try to jump them after the show (Scott should like that) and tell them we want a DVD release.

    Me, I would kill for The State on DVD. In the interim, you can always go to Statemedia.net to see very small streaming versions of the episodes.
    I only caught a sample of UCB, but those that I caught seemed very good (in the same off way that the State clicked with me).

    Well I got Mr Show a few days after it came out. I'd never seen it (as I haven't had HBO fro close to ten years) but I was familiar with Bob and David from Ben Stiller and Drew Carrey. I can now honestly say: "MR. SHOW F'N RULES". I can't wait for seasons three and four!

    BTW: Who wants to see the Ben Stiller Show on DVD? I'd snatch those things up before you could say "Welcome to Oliver Stone Land" three times.

    NEVER GIVE UP THE FIGHT FOR SKETCH COMEDY ON DVD!!!

    You should definately get a copy of the weirdest sketch-comedy around:
    The League of Gentlemen
    It's a britisch show that combines horror and comedy. It's like watching Twin Peaks with milk coming out of your nose. The show is done by 3 people who, with the use of great make-up, play an entire village (the imaginary Royston Vasey). The storylines arc, so over the 3 seasons you get to know the "local" shopkeepers (2 inbred weirdos who kill every non-local person that comes along), the butcher (who deals in "special stuff" and gets the entire town addicted to it) and a host of other weird people.
    Realy amazing stuf! (Made me forget about the chicken-lady completely [​IMG] )

    Another vote of approval for LEAGUE OF GENTLEMEN. One of the most well-written, painfully funny shows I've ever had the pleasure of watching. I can't wait for Season 2 on DVD! It's already out in the UK, along with a disc of one of their live shows.

    I want the rest of Mr. Show, The Ben Stiller Show, Kids In the Hall, SCTV, and Tenacious D (which I've never seen).

    I bought MR. SHOW on a whim yesterday. I haven't laughed that hard in a long time and I'm only through two episodes.

    Anybody remember "The Edge", a sketch comedy that was broadcast in the early 90's on Fox? It had Jennifer Aniston, Wayne Knight (Newman from Seinfeld), and Tom Kenny & Jill Talley (from Mr Show). It will never happen, but I would love to see this show again, whether on DVD, VCD, or VHS. One of the best sketch comedies that I have ever seen!!

    I remember the Edge:

    "What Michael Jackson is doing RIGHT NOW."

    Cut to a hospital room with a doctor holding a belt sander and a patient wearing a familiar glove.

    Also, that 90210 parody:

    "What are you doing here Tori?"

    "It's my Daddy's show."

    I haven't thought about that in a while.

    Actually, the exact quote was:

    What Michael Jackson is doing, RIGHT THIS MINUTE...

    They use to do this exact same line about 10 times a show (substituting in another name for Michael Jackson, obviously).

    The other standard bit with this show was that the cast would always get brutatly killed in some crazy manner at the beginning of every show. They also did killer music video paradies (the Wilson Phillips song, "Lucky Day" was one of my favorites).

    Man, do I miss this show...
