  • So while Robot Chicken is definitely a good show, I don't know what to say about the DVD
  • These include some rather extensive deleted scenes, some behind the scenes footage (which is quite interesting), commentary on every single episode, including guest commentaries by many of the special guest stars (including Mark Hammil, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Rachael Leigh Cook and more)
  • The show itself, however, is one that unfortunately doesn't do well in the large dose episode after episode DVD format

      I fell in love with Robot Chicken the first instant I saw it. If you’ve never seen the show, here it is in a nutshell: Action figures combined with claymation used in stop-motion animation to make fun of anything and everything pop culture, most commonly the pop-culture of the 1980’s.

      Having grown up in the 80’s, it sure is fun watching all the action figures and tv shows I used to play with and watch parodied so exquisitely on Robot


      Chicken.

      When the DVD came out, I went out and immediately bought it.

      Watching it all again (including episodes I missed) sure was a treat.

      But then I realized something: there is such a thing as too much of a good thing.

      Unlike some television shows, Robot Chicken doesn’t work well in large doses (at least not for me).

      I am not sure what the reason for it is, but when you sit down and watch it ...


      • episode after episode, it starts to get tiring.

        So while Robot Chicken is definitely a good show, I don’t know what to say about the DVD.

        Thankfully, unlike most Adult Swim DVDs (from where Robot Chicken originates), Robot Chicken has quite a few special features.

        These include some rather extensive deleted scenes, some behind the scenes footage (which is quite interesting), commentary on every single episode, including guest commentaries by many of the special guest stars (including Mark Hammil,

        Sarah Michelle Gellar, Rachael Leigh Cook and more).

        There is also some nice stuff detailing the evolution of Robot Chicken with archival footage of its precursor, Sweet J presents.

        The special features are a real treat if you are a fan of special features.

        The show itself, however, is one that unfortunately doesn’t do well in the large dose episode after episode DVD format.

        If you are bored and want to see some classic stop-motion animation every now and again, it is a good buy.
