"Greg the Bunny returns in this two disc collection of his parody series on IFC> If you are a fan of the FOX series or just Greg in general, then you will want this collection. It has many many funny moments, but it definitely ISN'T for the young. It is nothing like the FOX series when it comes to content. Not only does it have drug use and nudity, it has a heaping helping of cusing. Overall, if you are a fan of the FOX series, this is a have to have only if you aren't offended by adult material. My favorite sketch is the Pulp Fiction parody. They are great!"
This *is* the original show

"Greg the Bunny might as well be nicknamed "Energizer" - he just keeps going and going. The Greg the Bunny show started on cable access, graduated to pay cable with a short interstitial show on IFC, then moved to network on Fox (the other DVD available on Amazon), and finally back to IFC with more shorts. This DVD is a compilation of some of the best of the pre- and post-Fox film parodies. If you like your puppets twisted with a pinch of pathos, this is a must-get. Just don't let your kids watch it."
Disappointing...and I actually bought this...argh!

"Since when did network constraints actually foster MORE creativity? I'm an enormous fan of the original Greg the Bunny series, and found this new set of pseudo-parodies sophomoric and inconsistent by comparison. Too bad... the thinking behind this new collection seems to have been, "It just gets funnier every time the F-bomb is dropped by a puppet, right?" Sorry. There are a few unexpected glimpses of comic brilliance, but honestly this is not what I had hoped for as a follow up to such an amazing, clever, and original show. "
I know this was said before...

"But this is not for children!Take this advice to heart this is not anything like the Fox series with the exception of some characters.
Now on the actual review:
It is a great compilation of some of the greatest film parodies my favorites being Martian Serum Seven From Mars (Ed Wood),The Godpappy (The Godfather),Ya Know For Kids! (Fargo), Daddyhood (Eraserhead), and Dead Puppet Storage (Pulp Fiction).
Despite what many people think and as one reviewer put it just a pale shadow of the "original tv show". Actually IFC first came up with GTB and sold it to Fox then Fox tanked it and IFC brought it back...This actually has episodes of the Original show from IFC like the 13th step Blah and so forth.
All in all great DVD great show...the only reason I gave it a 4 was because they should've really put the 30 min. special where they brought the show back...the vegas comeback as I call it."
Funniest Show Ever!!

"I have the Fox series as well, and this DVD is so much better. I really like unedited humor though, hence my added enjoyment. The best parts are the commentaries and interviews. I bought 5 of these to give out as Christmas presents. IFC has a winner with this, it is only too bad more people don't know about it.
I definitely recommend it and all other Greg The Bunny stuff. "
