The Sarah Silverman Show is a highly underrated Comedy Central Show,which then takes it to the next level on DVD.  In this Season Two Volume One set you will get the first six episodes of the second season as well as a host of goodies.

The show itself as you would imagine takes Sarah’s edgy comic performances and puts them to a storyline, sort of.  The path Sarah takes to get to a joke or sometimes that is the joke in itself, is sometimes hard to follow because it is so off beat.  She does tackle some of the bigger issues in her series such as abortion, race and what it would be like to date God.  Needless to say if you are easily offended this may not be the best show for you.

Sarah is surrounded by a cast just as off beat as she is.  Her real life sister stars on the show as her show sister.  Two of Sarah’s best friends on the show, Steve and Brian, are gay and in a relationship together.  What makes it weird is that these characters are played by Brian Pohsn and Steve Agee.  While you may not recognize these names, it may help to know that the two are your run of the mill Dungeons and Dragons players and Brian was referred to in a recent roast on Comedy Central as a real life Frankenstein.  The D&D approach was something explored in one of the episodes where the game was fighting for time in their relationship together.  They also wonder if it was all the pot smoking that made them gay in another episode on the discs.  Needless to say these moments are indicative of the type of humor and material you will experience with this set.

The bonus materials on this disc are fun to watch, especially the circus of a press conference from Comic Con 2007.  Circus is the only word I can think of to describe the atmosphere and content those involved with the show bring to the table.  The behind the scenes and audio commentary are interesting, but the good stuff is in the digital shorts contained on the disc.  Special attention is paid to Cookie Party.  I will say no more since it would ruin some of Sarah’s best stuff on the disc.
