The Siegfried and Roy characters totally steal the show in this zany comedy.

"on the top of the case it says "THE COMPLETE SERIES" what it should say is the edited, censored, water downed version so we try not to offend anyone but white men cause they dont matter version. I wanted the complete series, not an edited series. what is it with these companies changing stuff to be politically correct?? the most obvious edit is they got rid of the cat cleaning off larrys whip cream. but they leave in the white men/lions cant dance joke. what else has been edited for my viewing safety?? this is why I wont buy the "in living color " series, they edited them. unfortunatly I pre ordered this but wouldnt have got it had I known I wasnt getting what they are advertising. the shows are funny but I hate when they do the PC thing so as not to offend anyone."
Father of the Pride rocks!

"Although FotP has been off the air for a couple of months, I continue to watch my recordings of it. Every Wednesday morning college students and I would sit in my office and laugh our butts off at this terrific show. NBC simply didn't get it. Even though the ratings were low in its terrible time slot, rather than cancel FotP, why not try another night & time? It seems that unless it's so-called "reality" or violence, there's no place for clever, adult television. I still love "The Simpsons", but there were way more laughs in FotP then Simpsons have shown in a long time. So another entertaining show goes the way of Family Guy, Futurama, Firefly, Enterprise...while pandering dreck is allowed to remain. (How many people really found the highly promoted "Joey" funny? God, what boring tripe!) Perhaps it will live again on dvd. Let us hope."
A hilarious show that doesn't get the respect it deserves

"While enticed by the fact that the show was totally CGI, after watching the pilot episode of FOTP I was leery on whether or not it could hold me after another epiosde. Thankfully I was proven that indeed it could! I actually found myself really enjoying each new episode that was released week after week. The comedy, while more adult in nature for the station, often had me rolling with laughter. Some of the lines are definitely quotable for a laugh among friends and fans. The guest voices that would appear were fun and fitting, as well as the random and strangeness of Seigfried and Roy. Father of the Pride probably wasn't as perfect as some other OH so wonderful Reality TV shows that're out there these days, but it's definitely worth checking out now that it'll be on DVD. The show deserved better than what some people were and are giving it. That much is certain."
