5.0 out of 5 stars A geek dream come true Feb. 22 2004
By E. A Solinas HALL OF FAME TOP 10 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
He is Dilbert. If you don't love him, at least you know him. He's the bespectacled potato-shaped Everyman, the alter ego of office workers frustrated by annoying coworkers and idiot bosses. The deliciously surreal tone of Scott Adams' comic strip is preserved (even amplified in places) in the TV adaptation.
In the strange adventures of Dilbert (Daniel Stern) and friends... er, coworkers, they travel to the muddy, backward country of Elbonia, search for Dilbert's long-lost dad in the mall, create anthrax throat drops ("My throat is moist... and the raspiness is gone... GACK!"), try to name a product that doesn't exist, deal with a black hole, and battle tiny people who are stealing the office supplies. Their souls are sucked out by their company, and a cat rules over Human Resources. And through it all, the megalomaniac Dogbert (Chris Elliot) somehow manages to arrange things so that the disasters aren't too outstanding.
Several supporting characters have enlarged roles. There's the violent, big-haired Alice (Kathy Griffin); lazy Wally; naive, dumb Asok, the idiot pointy-haired boss (Larry Miller), and Loud Howard (who can shatter glass with his booming voice). Other favorites like Catbert (played by "Seinfeld's" Jason Alexander) crop up from time to time, as well as other cameos by Jerry Seinfeld, Jeri Ryan, and others.
The animation is amusing and quite faithful to Adams' original animation (although Dilbert has a mouth here). And the humor is deliciously, delightfully twisted -- without losing the corporate edge, the scriptwriters kept in the sort of bizarre occurrances that make this so funny. Several scenarios are, however, included from the strip -- and sometimes even expanded (such as the Dadbert-in-the-mall episode).
Everyone's favorite bespectacled, pointy-tied, potato-shaped engineer is still funny on the small screen. "Dilbert: The Complete Series" is a must-have for cubicle serfs and technogeeks.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the great underrated sitcoms Feb. 19 2004
Format:DVD
Dilbert never got a fair chance on TV, being cancelled on a third rate network whose idea of great comedy usually involves bodily functions or broad you-go-girl bland tripe. For my part, I thought that this show happened to be one of the funniest sitcoms ever, and it stands along with the Simpsons as being one of the wryest and most perceptive satirical works on American Television.
The voice acting is excellent. The characters all sound just as they would be expected to when reading the comic strip. Daniel Stern as Dilbert, Larry Miller as the clueless boss (who had to have been based off of one of Scott Adams' bosses), Larry Charles as slacker engineer Wally, Kathy Griffin as Alice, the triangular-haired female engineer, and Chris Elliot as Dilbert's sidekick Dogbert, not to mention a parade of guest stars, including Tom Green, Andy Dick, Jerry Seinfeld, and Jason Alexander. Put simply, this show had talent to burn.
After occasional reruns on Comedy Central, I am jubliant to see this comedy jewel now available on DVD. The quirkiness and humor of the comic strip is definitely present here, as well as the savage skewering of workplace politics and procedures. The show's highlights include the first episode, the anthrax cough drops bit was inspired, a Y2K-themed episode (remember all that fuss about the end of the world?), frequent visits from evil Mr. Catbert (voiced by Jason Alexander), as well as a guest appearance by Jerry Seinfeld as an insane computer in charge of a computer-by-mail company, a la Dell. My favorite episode has got to be the merger episode, which has Dilbert's company merging with aliens from outer space (the funniest bit had to do with a mexican restaurant/corporate pickup bar).
I think very highly of this show and think that you should give it a shot. You owe it to yourself.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dilbert-isms Feb. 5 2004
Format:DVD
What made Dilbert so funny is that all the situations in it reminds people of things that go on in their normal lives. How many people groan at the decisions of the Pointy-Haired Boss, knowing that your own boss has done something just as boneheaded?
That is the beauty of Dilbert as a whole. Every working stiff in the world can relate to him. Sometimes it's your "cow-orkers" that always seem to be lacking in intelligence, or sometimes it's your Pointy-Haired Boss that comes up with some kind of half-baked idea. Sometimes, it's even both!
The cast was incredible with such stars as Chris Elliot, Larry David (the creator of Seinfeld), Kathy Griffin (late of the Brooke Shields' show, Suddenly Susan, and whose character, Alice allows Griffin to steal the show), and the overlooked Jason Alexander (Seinfeld's George) as evil Director of Human Resources, Catbert.
Overall, an excellent way to unwind when coming home from the office. Even better when enjoyed with some "adult beverages"!

3.0 out of 5 stars As a comic... great! As a TV show... meh. Jan. 31 2004
Format:DVD
Like most others, I stumbled on this show completely by accident. Flipping through the channels late at night, when low and behold, a friggin' Dilbert cartoon pops up! How interesting! As a fan of the comics (I can get them sent to my cell phone - how sad is that??) I enjoyed the few episodes I watched.
I bought the DVD set mainly to see what I missed. The answer: not a whole lot. The series does have a lot of hilarious moments, but as a whole, doesn't reach as high as I wanted. Seeing Dilbert, Dogber, Wally, Alice, the Pointy-Haired Boss and everyone else from the comics alive and moving was great, but most of the jokes and gags feel... recycled. I couldn't count the number of moments that seemed to be ripped right a specific strip or two in each episode. Which isn't to say that it's exactly a bad thing, just... old.
The set's features are great, with some behind-the-scenes stuff, and compilations of some cool moments in the show. Fans will get a kick out of seeing all of their favorite characters actually doing stuff instead of being stuck in a 2D drawing, but be prepared for some minor cases of deja-vu.

3.0 out of 5 stars Dilbert series DVD
The comic strip is way better than the series. I guess a good thing doesn't always translate well to TV. This is not one of those DVD's we can't wait to watch.

I bought this DVD because I had fond memories of the series. But there's a reason they only broadcast it once a week: it's bloody depressing. Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars A good show that has a fresh premise.
to bad it was on UPN where it was doomed from the get go. At least we got 30 very entertaining episodes.
