Since, for whatever reason, nobody seems to be talking about the first good show MTV has had in years. I figured I'd give my review of the season 1 DVD and make comments on Tuesday nights season premiere. For those that do not know, Human Giant is a sketch comedy show featuring some guys from UCB, and is freaking hilarious.
DVD-If you enjoyed the show, I would recommend this highly. The first disc is all 8 episodes and each episode has at least 1 commentary, sometimes 2, and they are pretty entertaining as well. The second disc is all extra features including highlights from when they took over MTV for 24 hours (very very funny stuff), deleted and extended scenes, early theater footage, and a couple of sneak preview sketches from season 2. Again, if you liked the show I would buy this quickly as it is only 17 bucks (at least it was last week when I grabbed it)
Season 2 Premiere-A solid opener with the youtube sketch being the best. I'm curious where the Shutterbugs and Illusionator sketches are going, but I guess I will have to wait. The crime re-enactment and the porn star funeral were also good, but those were on the DVD so I had already seen them. Overall a solid premiere.

All the pieces are here, but there's something off about the execution this season. I mean, you have the nuclear threat, a Jack that doesn't have the stomach for the job anymore because of his time in Chinese prison, and so far no hint of Kim or Audrey....
