Chappelle's Show - The Series Collection DVD Cover Art
SRP $49.99 1.33:1 DOLBY 2.0 PARAMOUNT

PARAMOUNT has released a boxed set, featuring the previously available season 1 and two, as well as the "Lost Episodes" release.  They're all in the same original individual boxed sets, within a bigger one to encase them. 

For fans of the series, it's a great way to get all three at a discount. More importantly, each collection is hilarious! While season one offers such great routines as the black/white supremacist, season 2 offers arguably even funnier moments, including plenty of side-splitting vignettes featuring Charlie Murphy. That's right, Eddie's brother! Who knew he could be this funny? This guy's fantastic, and it takes a genius like Chappelle to provide an atmosphere for this guy's humor to resonate. A particular story revolving around Prince may be one of the funniest moments in cable history, as presented here!

The "LOST EPISODES" can't live up to what's expected upon watching the first two seasons, but there are still enough funny moments to enjoy and recommend it.

All three sets are presented in the correct full-frame aspect ratio.  Colors are always solid and the grain that pops up sporadically is never intrusive enough to distract from the laughs appearing on screen.

The Dolby 2.0 mix perfectly captures the mix originally provided on cable. Dynamic range is fine, and while separation effects are adequate, being a comedy mix, it's center-channel emphasized without any distortion.

There are plenty of extras for each disc, and while some are disappointing, most are terrific, including stand-up scenes, deleted scenes, and, of course, more of Charlie Murphy!!!
