"I've been anticipating this since the release of the first season, as some of the finest episodes of Sarah Silverman's show to date are in this collection. The "volume 1" on the box signifies the hault in production the show underwent during the Writer's Guild of America strike during late '07 to early '08. Comedy Central has begun airing commercials for new episodes on 10/16/08, and this dvd's cover suggests they will be considered part of season 2 aswell.
I don't see the episodes listed, so for those curious, this should contain:
1."Bored of the Rings" - Sarah joins a pro-life group and Brian plays dungeon master in a 20 year long D&D campaign.
2."Joan of Arf" - Sarah tries to regain custody of Doug after she is seen licking his hind-quarters in a public park while Steve confronts Brian's fear of marriage.
3."Face Wars" - Responding to her prohibitance from entering a private tennis club, Sarah switches races with a black man to see who struggles more.
4."Doodie" - In an attempt to replace their mother's tombstone, the Silverman sisters compete with the Mustangs on their favorite show: Cooke Party.
5."Ah, Men" - After seeing him around the neighborhood, Sarah decides to give God a serious shot at a relationship and takes him to her high school reunion.
6."Maid to Border aka Brian's Song" - Steve learns his metal junkie boyfriend's ipod holds one song: "Two Princes". Sarah treks to Mexico to rehire her maid and Laura discovers her boyfriend's goofy one man show."
1st Season Hard To Duplicate...

"The 1st season of the SSS was so characteristically Sarah, so self centered, so irreverent, so funny, AND had great rhythm and character development. The 2nd season failed to live up to expectations, emphasizing more generalized juvenile bodily fluid and function humour, and less tangential Sarah-ness. As well, the 1st season was more A line focused, while the 2nd season offers a weaker, more diluted balance between A and B story. I still love the characters, but the writing is not as effective, the use of song almost disappeared. The 1st season is a great, shared in-joke. The 2nd season is different: more of a voyeuristic view into Valley Village: it's less personal, less witty, less funny. The SSS is still very sarah, and this is what we love about the show in the first place, but season 2 may have too many writers, too many contributors, or may have lost the feel of creating greatness on a small comedy budget...."

"It takes awhile to get use to Sarah's comedy,but she is different.Just when you think no comic can get anymore darring,this girl sure does.Giving birth to a allien, doing a comedy show about 9/11,enjoying becoming a homeless person...etc.
I think in a couple of more seasons,this show could really become something special."
