"I remember watching Robert Townsend and His Partners In Crime back in the 80's on HBO. The Volume 1 DVD has some of the comedy items I remember, but it has unfortunately been edited or cut up and is not like the original was. One skit I recall in particular that was one of the funniest things I have seen to date was called "Farters Anonymous", where people confess that they are hooked and addicted, but the center helped them. As they continue, you realize they are talking about a rather large flatulance problem that they have overcome. At the end, several members of this group hold candles say their first name and admit they are a "farter" or they "poot", until one fellow admits that he just ate a "big old can of beans". The group immedately blows out the candles as a 1-800-555-POOT number flashes across the screen. This item is not in this DVD, which I found very dissapointing. However, I did enjoy watching the black version of "Dynasty" again and some of the stand up comedians were pretty funny. To sum it all up in a nutshell, I was not particularly thrilled with Volume 1 of Partners In Crime. It is rather blase. I have not watched Volumes 2 and 3 as yet, but hope that some of the missing comedy items I remember are included.

A must have for any true comedy fan

"So glad to find this on Amazon! As a teen, my friends and I watched the entire series. We still laugh about it and ocassionally repeat lines from the show. There is a lot of talent packed into this program. Many of his "Partners In Crime" were virtually unheard of when the special aired on HBO back in the 80's. An easy way to own footage of today's top sitcom and movie comedians before they made it big. Check out their style and see what they were like before blowing up. If you're a true fan of comedy, then this dvd is for you. This will no doubt become a classic (it already is in my book)."

"I taped (put a small stereo to the tv and made an AUDIO tape) of this routine when it aired on HBO when I was young because I loved it so much. The range and talent in this production is rarely seen all together. I've been searching for the DVD and I am so happy to have finally found it. Paul Mooney we love you!"
