"If South Park can be a little too tame for your taste, you might want to check out The Slim Shady Show.The characters (loosely based on various Eminem alter-egos) and humor are more sophisticated than you might expect, even though it runs on the cruder side. Tastelessness abounds, quite often to the detriment of celebrities--Kurt Cobain, Leonardo DiCaprio and Robert Downey Jr. are much abused--but always for the sake of comedy. And you don't have to be an Eminem fan to like it--his music never makes an appearance, though in the best episode, "Slimshank Redemption," Slim does some freestyling while in solitary confinement--a hilarious rant which sends up Eminem's style perfectly ("He's not even making sense anymore!" nerdy Marshall squeaks). My personal favorite of the posse, Ken Kaniff (voiced by Eminem) is fashion-concious and man-crazy, and clearly the most fun. His act of raising Gianni Versace from the dead is by turns touching, hilarious, and results in new outfits for the gang and a great party. Anyone who accuses Em of homophobia might think twice after watching Ken in action.This DVD loses a star for not having much in the way of extras. The "lost episode" should have stayed so and the picture gallery is pointless. The behind-the-scenes featurette is nice but basically fluff. I would like it to have been longer with more in-depth information. The D-12 video is well-conceived but musically listless. Buy this for the episodes alone, they are worth it."

"You totally have to be an open-minded person to see this - it is extremely funny, if you find crude to be funny! They poke fun at many famous hollywood stars and they say it like it is... no lies or politically correct attitudes here. The writers didn't hold back with this one... non-conforming, explicit cartoons at it's best! I loved it! Be sure to pay close attention as there are many little hidden jokes that will crack you up!"
Hilarious and Brilliant!

"Eminem's work on this is both smart and brilliant! the cartooning is sickly funny and he still finds time to make fun of everyone, just like he does in all of his songs. these are all shows that were originally aired on the internet... and during the anger management tour. it's a lot like the sick and twisted comedy of south park, and he even makes fun of south park in this dvd! along with mary kate & ashley olsen, mase, christina aguilera, robert downey jr, ben affleck, matt damon, his mother, leonardo dicaprio, the gouverment, and much, MUCH, more! it also includes a lot of extras that the vhs doesn't. like behind the scenes footage, picture gallery, music videos, plus a never before seen episode! it's worth it! buy it!"

"It has its moments but needs some polish, and I don't like how he did Everlast because 'Whitey Ford Sings the Blues' was off the chain. How the hell do you access 'the Ass and the Curious' bonus episode??"
