The first Best-Of had some great skits, but having now seen volume 2, I know there's MUCH MORE out there that deserves to be released as well!
Chris Rock always knows how to make the best laughs out of any situation, and he does it well. Spoofing society and all within and all that it makes, skits like "Mike Tyson for President", "Progress Report", the exceptional "Halle Berry 911", "S**tstorm" (okay I bleeped two letters but it really is gut-bustingly funny to watch!), "Racist Toys", "UPN News", "Baby 1 Credit", "Make You Wait Hair Salon", the never-stop-laughing "Educational Video", and basically all the rest will keep you in stitches! In short, even without namedropping some of the skits, the only one that failed to amuse me entirely was "The Next Great White Hope". But even then, that one still had its moments.
Audio and video quality are rather good for a contemporary TV show release. Video is mostly crisp, though there is some artifacting that might not look good on HDTV. But that's hardly worth complaining about. No demerit marks for these issues.
I wish HBO would release this series because it's the funniest show I've seen in years. Which is odd considering it's now 2005 and his show ended in 2000, but I digress.
One tiny disclaimer, there is some profanity involved (after all, this show was on cable, where free speech can generally be exercised unless you're a news network, but I digress...), but it's not overly done and often it's intelligently written in. So even if those naughty words are normally a turn-off, at least Netflix it - either way, you WON'T be disappointed!
