"This is the last Kids in the Hall DVD to come out, unless they provide their fans with another movie in the future. Oh, how we can hope.
The Pilot itself is a wonderful look back at Dave, Bruce, Kevin, Mark, and Scott's first chance on cable television. Being born the same year this episode appeared, I can be one to shed light on how well this episode has held up. It has held up.
The Bonus Features on this DVD are few, but great. A commentary, both listened to and viewable. Kevin and Scott in LA. Mark and Dave in Toronto. A trivia session that seems more for the Kids themselves than for the audience. And, a Q&A session that has some questions we've all heard answered before (in which the Kids mumble through) and some that they have way too much fun answering.
I would love to give this a 5/5 but I just can't. I blame you, Bruce McCulloch. He is absent from this DVD in all special feature capacity. What's so great about the Kids in the Hall is that they all bring something different to the mix. If you're missing just one, it doesn't quite taste the same. Plus, there really could be a couple more special features to make this DVD a must, must have. The fact that we had to buy this because the 1st Season DVD has only a shortened version with already done commentary is rather annoying. What was Broadway Video thinking? Oh yeah, get more money.
But it's still a fantastically funny DVD. I give it a

"While it is true that you can see half of the pilot in the season one DVD, and while it is true that the special features do have some information that KITH fans have heard a million times before, there can be no question that buying the DVD of the pilot episode is worth your time, money, and whatever tears gather in your eyes from missing Bruce McCulloch's presence in the bonus features. The pilot contains many sketches you just cannot see anywhere else--including "Naked for Jesus," featuring a delightful expanse of bare Kids' bums--and, happily, a visual commentary, where the guys talk about how sketches were written, how young they look, how much they look like their mothers when in drag and other priceless musings. Long live the Kids."
