The Series

[Rating:3/5]

In this second volume of Tosh.0, dubbed ‘Deep V’s (because Tosh is wearing a deep v-neck shirt in every episode), Tosh tackles topics, all from random Internet videos. No nothing on Tosh is original material (video-wise). Rather, Tosh shows us a series of clips, and then just comments on them, typically with the kind of humor that either A) makes us shake our heads or B) makes us laugh-out-loud. While I’m not as big a fan of his newer shows (I feel they’ve become a bit too gross-out), I can’t help but find myself laughing at Tosh’s comments. In somewhat of an odd move, Paramount has decided to not include the rest of the First Season here, but instead include the first 16 episodes of the 2nd Season:

  1. David After Dentist
  2. Crystal Light Dancers (Reunion)
  3. Risky Business Girls
  4. Football Player Tackles His Teammate
  5. The Above Average Homeboy
  6. Prom Girl
  7. Hoodrat Kid
  8. Make It Snow Girl
  9. Phillies Fan Daughter
  10. Lighting Bolt LARPer
  11. Look At That Horse Guy
  12. What What In The Butt (Remix)
  13. Stuck In An Elevator
  14. Cartwheeling Goalie
  15. Looking For A Girlfriend
  16. W.o.W. Freakout Kid (Imagination)

To be honest, if you haven’t seen any of Daniel Tosh’s comedy, I’d recommend seeing his Happy Thoughts stand-up first before diving into this. Yes, his stand-up is far more vulgar as he doesn’t have any restrictions; however, you don’t have to see his awkward responses to some of the videos viewers send in. If you have seen his stand-up and, most importantly, find his style of comedy funny, definitely check out this 2nd Volume.

Video Quality

[Rating:3.5/5]

Using a mix of footage of internet videos and Tosh in front of a green screen, the series’ 1:78:1 framed, AVC MPEG-4 encoded transfer, is mostly solid. Colors are spot on, whether the bright green screen or Daniel’s varying hoodies. Some of the live action moments, where Tosh visits former rejects, do result in a consistent image. Noise levels are kept in check while facial flesh tones are accurate. Contrast levels, as well, are spot on with no instance of overly pumped up whites or crushed blacks. All in all, considering this is a TV series, the image is just fine.

Audio Quality

[Rating:3.5/5]

The series arrives with a Dolby TrueHD 5.1 track, which suits the material well. With this being a dialogue driven series, I expected a rather front-heavy mix. Such is the case here, however, it’s really not that bad a thing. Dialogue is well reproduced throughout with no instance of drop out. The numerous track laughs, or audience laughs, do open up the mix a little bit. Atmosphere is mostly reserved for said laughs as they can occasionally be heard from either left rear or right rear. LFE is fairly absent with the exception of the varying hip-hop themed clips (or the show’s theme). All in all, this is a track that handles everything just fine.

Supplemental Materials

[Rating:2/5]

The provided supplements are shown in HD:

  • Extended Redemption Interviews – A total of 11 extended redemption interviews are shown, totaling 1:27:50 in length. Most of the funnier bits come from the extension of the ‘What What In The Butt’ guy.
  • “If Daniel Fought Celebrities” – Imagine a world where all the celebrities fought all the celebrities he ‘makes fun’ of.
  • Uncut Human Centipede – This uncut clip, which is uncut FOR A REASON, now runs 24 minutes – roughly the length of a full episode.

The Definitive Word

Overall:

[Rating:3.5/5]

Tosh.0 can certainly be hit-or-miss comedy. Sometimes over-the-top, yet other times downright hilarious. This set from Paramount includes a mostly solid collection of his skits, something of which fans will definitely want to add to their collections. Everyone else should stick with a rental.
