I never found this to be that funny. Largest problem is nobody finds men dressing in drag funny anymore and even when this show first aired it was unfunny. There's some humorous moments, but not enough to make this something worth viewing.

MUST buy (if you are a KITH fan)

"If this sells well they will release more seasons. Oh I HOPE they release more seasons!The first three discs contain all the episodes from the first season and the fourth disc is a special features disc. I won't spoil the fun but it does contain the pilot episode which is right on par with their regular stuff. I will say this much, remember the last KITH episode? Remember the sketch where Bruce is onstage and he watches part of a sketch with all the Kids sitting around a campfire? Well that sketch is from the pilot episode and this is probably the only way you will ever see it! (unless you could download it somehow... hmmm gives me an idea)From watching the episodes Comedy Central aired I was under the impression that 'The Kids' came up with their characters initially and kept them going throughout all of their seasons. Not true. After watching the first season this is abundantly clear. Here we get several sketches from Gordon and Fran, Bobby Terrance, The Headcrusher, Thirty Helens, and The-Nobody-Likes-Us-Guys but sadly have to do without Sid and Charisse, Simon and Heckubus, Chicken Lady, Gavin, Francesca Fiore and many other fan favorites. Mississippi Gary is merely introduced along with glimpses of Cathy and Kathy and of course Buddy Cole.Overall this was an AWESOME walk down memory lane. There are a few sketches that were never aired on comedy central (censored) and that alone makes it worth purchasing for any die-hard fan. Plus there are a few snippets that Comedy Central just cut out for no apparent reason at all. For example, when Mark stands outside of a house and keeps yelling for Lopez there is a brief segment I never even knew existed. (he makes up a little song about how Lopez is lazy) In conclusion, this is a wise purchase for the casual fan and a godsend to a diehard like me."
Yeah, F the bank!!

"Man, this is easily the best set of DVD`s I have in my house. My wife and I stay up late almost every night and watch them and find ourselves laughing out loud! We first started watching it back in the 80`s when it was on HBO and loved it. We would occasionally watch it on comedy central but it just wasn`t the same with all the editing. The best part is that you can watch any skit you like and skip the ones that you don`t.
It was interesting to get some history on the kids from the bonus material disc and hear how they got along with each other. It must`ve been a blast on that set.
All in all, this was the best money I`ve spent in quite a while and I can`t wait for season 2. Go buy it!"
