"The second season of Comedy Central's Chappelle's Show not only shined light years beyond the first season, it outdid it in every way. Comedian/host Dave Chappelle took his penchant for satiring race relations and pop culture to new heights, with memorable skits that will leave the viewer laughing hysterically, no matter who they are. Skits include Dave portraying the black president if Bush were black, various moments in the life of rapper Lil' Jon, Paul Mooney assuming the guise of Negrodamus, and of course, the infamous episode where Chappelle's Show cast member Charlie Murphy (brother of Eddie) recalls an incident with the late Rick James. What will have you laughing even more are Dave and rappers Q-Tip and Snoop Dogg, with the assist of some puppets, enlightening the children of the dangers of sexually transmitted diseases, and a guest spot by Wayne Brady that will change the way you look at the former daytime TV host. With guest stars like Brady, Jamie Foxx, Lil' Jon, Nick Cannon, and so on, Chappelle's Show came into it's own in it's second season. The DVD release is mostly uncensored (most of the nudity is still blurred) and the special features are mostly better than those featured on the scant first season release, including unaired Charlie Murphy stories, an extended interview with Rick James, and a hilarious blooper reel/deleted scenes that features a commentary from Dave himself."
Censored vs. Uncensored

"For all of those complainers out there whining about the so-called censorship on this "uncensored" Chappelle Season Two DVD set, read on...it seems the biggest tirade is about the pixilated breasts during the Rick James sequence at the China Club. Well, there is good reason for that pixelation...the pixelation is to give the viewer the idea that there were bare breasts there when there really was not...they were really covered up! If you watch the "outtakes/blooper" reel, you'll see clearly (and UN-pixelated) that the women at the bar have dark covers over their breasts, but the pixelation made them look bare.
Had they not had these covers on, this DVD would NOT have censored it. And ask yourself why they pixelated that when, during the Oprah sequence, Dave was painting a VERY NAKED woman who was NOT pixelated at all...and was 100% in the buff. Think about it!
It's really a shame when reviews have to resort to something like this, but I felt I owed it to Dave, Neal and their genius comedic talents to let everyone know what they were complaining about was really absolutely nothing! So, instead of WRONGLY complaining about pixelated breasts (which you were wrong about anyway), spend your time watching this hilarious set for the sole reason it was created for - making us laugh!"
Great sketches, just plain excellent collection.

"Although I enjoyed the Chappelle Show Season 1 set, I was a bit dissapointed and thought that they could have included more in terms of extra bits, behind the scenes footage, etc. Its become common since DVDs became more common, and these kind of extra features have almost become expected of filmmakers and TV broadcasting companies. With that said it was refreshing to get my hands on Season 2 of the Chappelle Show and see a few extra goodies that totally made the purchase that much more worth it.
Highlights on this set for me included Dave's 'Training Day' ride with Wayne Brady, Charlie Murphy's Rick James segments, and the Charlie Murphy bit about playing ball with Prince. Included in the extras are several great segments, including more Charlie Murphy interviews, an extended Rick James interview, and some behind the scenes standup of Dave's that is not included during the show. On the negative side and worth note is the fact that Comedy Central felt it necessary to throw a plethora of ads at the viewer on this DVD set, and I personally was able to overlook this small issue because the rest of the total package is just fantastic.
Pros- Extra content beyond the basic episodes, and the episodes themselves.
Cons- Lots of annoying Comedy Central ads.
Overall- Despite the ads, this is a great purchase and will have you laughing yourself silly over and over."
