Kids In The Hall: The Complete Series Megaset DVD Review


Synopsis:FROM THE INFAMOUS CHICKEN LADY TO CROSS-DRESSING LUNACY, CANADA’S MOST IRREVERENT (AND BEST-SELLING) COMIC PRODIGIES RETURN WITH 50% LESS PACKAGING, BUT 100% OF THE LAUGHS!

For five groundbreaking seasons, Canadian-bred comic prodigies THE KIDS IN THE HALL stretched sketch comedy to its ultimate limits with hilariously off-the-wall results. With a cast of comic creations only the brilliant-- or truly twisted -- could imagine, THE KIDS IN THE HALL: THE COMPLETE SERIES MEGASET presents the Kids’ nearly 800 sketches from every single episode of each season in this stunning 22-disc set with 50% less packaging, but 100% of the laughs!

From the infamous Chicken Lady and Crushing Your Head to Buddy Cole and the romantically challenged Cabbage Head, these pioneering, edgy, and ever-charming comedians always managed to land on the stranger side of funny--and look good in floral dresses while doing it.  This best-selling MegaSet, now refreshed with new eye-catching art in a slim, shelf space saving package, includes all five of the groundbreaking, Emmy®-nominated series, plus two bonus discs featuring the new IFC 8-part mini-series “Death Comes to Town.”

Review: The Kids In the Hall was a classic sketch-comedy show that came out of Canada back in 1989 to 1994.  The comedy was absolutely original and a fantastic watch, especially for the younger crowds.  If you don't own this series yet, this is your chance.  This set is very similar to the previous release, but this one has slim cases and includes the Death Comes to Town Mini-Series from IFC (see below).   This is an amazing set and a must-have for any fan!

The special features include: An Oral History-Season 1: 45 Minutes of Interviews with the Kids and Lorne Michaels, An Oral History-Season 2: 15 minutes with the Kids, Paul Bellini, and Lorne Michaels, Audio Commentary by The Kids, 10 Best-of Compilations Featuring Fan-Favorite Sketches, Over 90 Minutes of Original Performances from the Rivoli Theater, Archival Footage Never-Before-Seen-on-TV and Full sketch listing, poster gallery, cast bios, slideshows, and more…


For those died-in-the-wool-dress KiTH fans, this May, A&E will release THE KIDS IN THE HALL: DEATH COMES TO TOWN a must-own, all-new 8-episode comedy series that originally ran on IFC in 2010.  It will be available individually, as a 2-DVD set,  as well as part of the KiTH MegaSet. 

When Death gets off the Greyhound bus in small town Shuckton, Ontario, everyone in town is implicated when one of its most distinguished citizens is found murdered. As a suspect is arrested and the trial plays out, the entire town is affected and its dark secrets are unraveled and exposed.  Featuring the Kids playing all the characters, this uproarious mini-series showcases Canada’s most irreverent exports in a must-see production that marks the return of the audacious comedy troupe to U.S. television for the first time since their cult series ended in the mid-1990s.  Extras include audio commentaries with Dave Foley and Bruce McCulloch; deleted and extended scenes and bloopers
