There’s no other way to slice it, this two-disc DVD feels like it should be out on the market for half the price with half the discs, because it’s essentially half of a complete DVD set.
Don’t get me wrong, I think The Sarah Silverman Program is hilarious and I really enjoyed watching every episode on this DVD—all six of them. That’s right, six.—but the bottomline is this DVD set just isn’t much of a set. It feels half done and I can only assume it’s a casualty of the writer’s strike, as the creative team behind the show seems to have done their best to put together a ton of special features to make up for the lack of episodes.
The second disc is chock-full of behind-the-scenes skits and online videos (including the fantastic “Cookies Come Alive!” animated shorts by the dudes who brought us all the insanely funny “House of Cosbys”), not to mention the complete 2007 Comic-Con panel with the writers and cast, but with only six episodes as the disc’s main sell (at least they all have commentary!) this two disc set feels like corporate chose to package an incomplete product that the show’s talent did their best to fill with extras for fans.
