The Man Show: Season Two on DVD
(Editor's note: if you're concerned with political correctness, feminism
and the like, you may want to skip this review. If you're offended by what you
read below - lighten up and get a life!)
The disclaimer that appears before every episode of The Man Show indicates
that the show contains mature subject matter. Theyd probably
be interested to know that theres absolutely nothing mature about The
In fact, Jimmy Kimmel and Adam Carollas comedy show is probably the most
juvenile, crass, and offensive show on television. And gosh darn, its
also one of the most consistently hilarious.
The first episode in the second season starts off right away with giving us
exactly what we want: more Juggies! In case season one didnt have enough,
we now also get to ogle the twins.
The duo of Kimmel and Carolla are geniuses at what they do. They take ordinary
everyday situations like workplace behavior, donating to charity, and husbandly
duties, and "men-onize" them. What this means, of course, is that nearly every
scenario imaginable involves some combination of beer, bars, and breasts. Not
to mention hot chicks wrestling in a vat of mud. Oh, and hot chicks in the wilderness.
And hot chicks on trampolines.
Youll probably notice a pattern emerging.
The Man Show is great because its the only show out there thats
really by men for men - and screw political correctness! Kimmel and Carolla
frequently say exactly what all of us are thinking. So even if there are women
around, all we do is laugh at the show, rather than saying these things and,
because we know we're not supposed to say (let alone think!) these things, condemning
ourselves. Its also the perfect show with which to play drinking games,
or just sit around with your best chum(p)s and giggle yourself silly.
Each episode is chock full of life lessons and great ideas that dont
actually exist but should. A prime example is the Ladysitters, who will send
a homosexual man out to your house to assist your significant other with all
the girlie things she wants you to do.
While it may seem odd to call such a show brilliant, The Man Show is just that.
Theres nary a man around (well, "real" man anyway) who doesnt enjoy
chauvinistic, male-friendly humor and important learnings. Its the perfect
show to bring together men and boys alike, and could probably bring world peace
if we didnt have to worry about the chicks.
The first season of The Man Show was split into Volume 1 and Volume
2, so its nice to have the whole of season two in one set. The 26
episodes are split across 6 DVDs, presented in 1.33:1 full screen and Dolby
Digital Stereo. Picture detail and color are pretty good, with very little grain
Audio is as good as it should be. Really, who cares when its The Man
Show? Theres rarely a single second when youre concerned with DVD
quality, if you even remember that youre watching a DVD.
Extras include some bonus bits with Karl Malone, some Man Show Miracles, The
Juggbournes (which you can probably figure out), Tobias Cats, Whats
With the Attitude? and yes, more of girls jumping on trampolines.
