Movie Reviews

Nowhere near his best work
N. Brown | 02/09/2010
(1 out of 5 stars)

"I don't have to reiterate the comic genius of Richard Pryor, but it is also a reality that the material of gifted talented artists cannot be manipulated or edited because it destroys the very essence of the talent, and whats left is only a very poor representation of the gift itself. Thats what NBC did in this case. Clearly Richard was too "raw" for TV in the 1970s, and so this should have never been attempted. The failure of the show, when Richard himself cancelled it out of frustration, only confirmed this. The only good episode was the "Richard Pryor Special" which is not included with Vol 1 or 2. True Pryor fans will only be disappointed with these DVDs...I know I was, and I have been a fan his entire career. Better off buying his "Live" concerts which are classics!"
