"I remember renting the VHS tapes in the 80's of gallager and laughing my head off. They had been more expensive before the advent of the internet and hard to find, but now they can be picked up for $[...] a piece. But, when I saw this DVD collection, it was almost to good to be true, but this is one that is true. It contains 14 shows of gallagher, and all of the ones I remember renting or seeing on the early days of comedy central. Definitly for the gallagher fan. Their is also the melon crazy collection available, which is the same as the first three disc of this collection, minus totally new,smashing cheeseheads, and sledg-o-[...].
GALLAGHER: THE SLEDGE-O-MATIC COLLECTION contains the following programs: "Mad As Hell," "Two Real," "Stuck In The '60s," "The Maddest," "Melon Crazy," "Over Your Head," "The Bookkeeper," "Overboard," "We Need A Hero," "Messing Up Texas," "An Uncensored Evening," "Totally New," "Smashing Cheeseheads," and "Sledge-O-[...]"
Gallagher strikes again!

"Ok, I know the obvious reaction to this set is: "first Anchor bay releases the Smashing Watermellon collection last year, and now they put this out, with 3 more shows. They're just out to make money". Well, I countered this by trading in my Smashing Watermellon set, along with a few other DVD's and a CD to buy this. It now finally gives me a full version of "Totally New" on DVD. A couple of things I noticed: the show "We need a hero" was initially 90 minutes on VHS, on this set it has been reduced to an hour, I'm not sure why. Also considering he lets everything fly on all the other shows, the language editing of "Smashing cheeseheads" was odd. Overall I was happy with the set, and now have all his shows on DVD."
Lots of Gallagher for the money.

"It's no-frills. No extras, no notes, nothing. But I would have paid two-thirds as much for "The Bookkeeper" alone.
Sound and video are certainly good enough. They're comedy concerts -- not music videos or home-theater demo disks.
A little doco on the whens and wheres would have been nice, but I'm certainly statisfied."
Excellent collection for a fan

"This is a very no-nonsense(?) collection: all of Gallagher's shows, placed in one convenient, animated box. As a fan of his work and his style, I'm perfectly pleased with it, expecially for the price. Some might be disappointed with the lack of extra features on the discs, but with Gallagher working live, what outtakes would there be anyway? The animated box is also a pretty cool little bonus in itself."
