DVD review

By Amy Steele

Sarah Silverman Show I find the intentional coyness of Sarah Silverman's comedic delivery unbelievable.

On the first season of The Sarah Silverman Show, she's contrary and "shocking" by being a cutesy girl and acting all "Aw, shucks!" about everything. She's a pretty, baby voiced girl with a potty mouth and penchant toward adolescent humor [mostly teenage boy humor though]. Is that supposed to turn the comedy world upside down or be impressive in some way?

At turns tomboyish, with her crude jokes and numerous "outrageous" scenarios-getting loopy on cough syrup and crashing into a playground, mistaking community activists for lesbians or inadvertently becoming an AIDS activist [actually the one episode I found clever and winning] -- she handles most of it with such precociousness it's challenging to watch.

There are only six episodes but I could not bring myself to watch them all.
