I am a real lover of most things Lewis Black. This short-lived series was just not my cup of tea. I suppose for the slap-stick type of humor, it serves it's purpose. But it is far-less content and current-event rich as his stand-up routines and commentary. The bulk of the show isn't really Mr. Black delivering humorous input, but rather two co-stars/other comedians. Just lacks the brilliance, for me, of his other body of work. I suppose for the format of the show, it is what it is supposed to be. Frankly, I couldn't even finish watching it. I will be attempting to sell it, or give it away to someone with a different sense of humor than myself.
IT is a series of skits, with many great gems. There are moments where it can fail, but think of it like a courtroom Dailyshow...kind of but not really. It is a made up vs debate where two comedians go head to head on why one thing is worse than another. Lewis judges, and jumps in from time to time, but the others (who have been on the Dailyshow and such) do the presentin of both sides. This is not 100% Black, it is more like 20% his work and the rest of the talk time is the presenters. I loved this show, downloaded every episode I could, now it is out on dvd...and it is mine!
Some people may not feel 5 stars is correct, but I felt this show was so great at times I could not fault it. But if you are a Lewis Black fan...well you should like it too, but it seems from the other reviews they have issues with other people presenting. Hey it is both seasons!
I don't know what it is about Lewis Black, if it's his angry, shouting, peed off routine, or what, but I find him entertaining. I am not much for the hardcore comedian's like Andrew Dice Clay, nor am I for silly comedic. Black sort of fits in between somewhere. In this DVD, Black is the host of two comedians that debate some silly stuff; Two comedians take sides in debating which is worse: Oprah vs. the Catholic Church; Paris Hilton vs. Dick Cheney, and more. It's will give you a few good laughs.
