I'd give it 10 stars if I could,
This review is from: The Sarah Silverman Program - Season 1 [DVD] (DVD)
Personally I think this show is one of the most consistently wonderful things on TV at the moment. Like Sarah's stand-up, it is definitely an acquired taste and the easily offended should just stay well clear.
The central premise of the show is that Sarah's character thinks that the world revolves around her and she is constantly trying to make herself the centre of attention, often when other characters are really suffering. She does all this with a bluntness and innocence that is both cringeworthy and hilarious, and no-one else but Sarah could carry this off - her performance in "The Aristocrats" movie proved that.
The supporting cast in the show are drawn from Sarah's real life friends. Even the little stray dog she took in makes an appearance. This helps to give the show a home-made kind of family atmosphere.
I first saw this show when I was living in the USA in 2007, it was awesome then and as I've re-watched the episodes on DVD I've grown to love it even more. The only other recent comedy series that has equalled SS's show for me is "Curb Your Enthusiasm"
All in all, I'd give it 10 stars if I could. Roll on the release of season 2!
