Strangers With Candy - Comedy Central - Season 1 DVD

Post by fnordboy » May 30th 2003, 1:59 am

Finally!!!

I don't know if anyone here is a fan or not of the show Strangers With Candy, but it will be coming out on DVD in about 2 weeks. Well, Season 1 will be coming out then, hopefully with seasons 2 and 3 to follow soon.

If you don't know this was a series that aired on Comedy Central a few years back that starred Amy Sedaris as Jerri Blank a 47 year old "former user, boozer, and loser" who moves back in with her father, stemother and stepbrother and returns to High School.

It was very odd show, but was friggin hilarious, see for yourself there are some clips at the website:

Fnordboy,

Nope never heard of the show. I am glad though for fans of the show that it is finally coming to DVD. Ever show that comes to DVD helps out the rest of us who are waiting for other series to come out.

Enjoy.

:D

Best,

Lance Man

I saw the first few episodes. It was a weird show. It fell off of my radar though.

Best Buy has it for a really good price, I think it was 24.99, which is not bad at all for a season (10 eps).

I just got a ton of DVDs in from the UK today (about 7) so I am torn as to what to watch :D , but I will atleast watch on ep. of SWC tonight at some point :::looks at clock and notices the time running out before sleep :shock: :::

Thanks much Fnordboy!!!! This is great news (to me). I love this dark, filthy, dimented show! :twisted: I had no idea it was even close to being released on DVD. I am very happy. As Krakolano once quipped here in the forum...."Strangers With Candy was the dirtiest, most hysterical show ever!". I concur. Thanks again! :D :D :D :D Now if you'll just tell us Parker Lewis Can't Lose is available at Best Buy. :wink:

No problemo :) I forgot just how funny some of these episodes were...like the Pleasure Island episode...one fo the best eps they made.

I wish I could tell you PLCL is available...one day hopefully. It is looking brighter with some of the more obscure stuff coming out like Strangers With Candy, Space Ghost Coast to Coast, and Sealab 2021 coming out soon. It is a good time for us TV Show geeks.. :D

Has anyone been catching the re-runs on Comedy Central in the afternoons of this show? I love it!!!!!! They are also running eps of Upright Citizens Brigade. I am so glad I am an unemployed bum with a satellite dish right now! :lol:
