Love Ellen's comedic observation of every day life. Though both DVD's were funny, the second one "Here & Now" is worth the price of the DVD. I already own a copy of "Here & Now" but it is usually loaned out to people that want to watch it. Now, I can have one at home to watch repeatedly -- which I have done. Enjoy!

"I recently got the chance to attend a taping of the Ellen Degeneres show (she danced with me, ha!) and I have to admit that I teared up when I actually got to see her in person. It has been a dream of mine for quite a while. Not only are these DVDs extremely funny and original, but they have some very touching moments, as well. The interpretive dance in "The Beginning" gave me chills, even as it made me laugh. And seeing Ellen tear up when she came out (ha) in "Here and Now" was beautiful. I admire this woman's strength and ability, and I strive to be like her. If you have a chance, buy this DVD set, you won't, can't possibly, be sorry. :)"

"For those of you living under a rock, Ellen Degeneres is the host of her own hit talk show. Of course, she wouldn't be where she is today if she hadn't gained national fame through her comedy.

The Beginning is extremely funny. Especially since it was taped only three years after she came out. She makes alot more references to her sexuality in it than in Here and Now. The topics range from losing attention during conversations, to her stops at a health food store and a sex store, to even God herself. Here and Now is alot more family friendly than The Beginning, but both will make you laugh at how accurate they are to the everyday world.

Whether you're a fan of her talk show, a fan of her in general, or just enjoy a good comedy set, this DVD will not disappoint."
