this is black comedy at its greatest. the first disc of this second season DVD collection houses, quite possibly, the most creative, hysterical episodes of the entire series. "yes you can't", "the blank page", "the goodbye guy", and "the virgin jerri" are my personal favorites. the only weak episode on in this collection is "a price higher than riches," although that episode still manages to be ruthlessly hilarious (as a shoe salesman, jerry asks a man in a wheel-chair "how he wore the last pair out")
in an age where the vast majority of non-sitcom comedy shows are parody humor (i.e. SNL, MadTV) it's a breathe of fresh air to see something so inventive, creative, and politically incorrect; the central theme to this show is the satiring of the "after-school special" mentality; where in the end, the protagonist discovers some new enlightening, cathartic revelation about life and everything is okay again, but it's much more complex than that. the writers toss in some of the most bizarre dialogue, often laced with double negatives and contradictions (such as "must be great to hope for the things you wish you wanted", etc ...)
all in all, this show is certainly not for everyone. as amy sedaris (jerri blank) said herself in an interview: "I'm glad everyone doesn't like it, that would mean i was doing something wrong." amen.

Strangers With Candy is a brilliant black comedy featuring one of the most (intentionally) ugly characters on TV. One of the thrilling things about Stranger with Candy is that it shows and in some ways even celebrates our darkest, worst impulses. We both are horrified by and are deeply sympathetic to Jerri's various plights: taking drugs, being made fun of, smashing the glass of a store front and stealing, calling people racist/sexist/homophobic names, etc etc. As one of the writers says on the bonus interview, "Jerri is easily hurt for someone so cruel." As viewers we get to play both sides of the fence. We get to vicariously enjoy her cruelty by reassuring ourselves that this is satire, and also root for her to win when she finds herself as the underdog.
This second season is a marked improvement from the first season when the writers were still finding their footing and developing the characters. They now are blossoming into flowers that smell as good as mace, and are as powerful. I'm looking forward to the third season DVD when things get even better.

Strangers with Candy is such a wickedly funny show. I love the dark humor and the acting is incredible. Amy Sedaris is, of course, hilarious as Jerri Blank, everyone's favorite 46-year-old high school freshman, but Stephen Colbert and Paul Dinello are just as hilarious as her callous, unconcerned teachers harboring a secret of their own. And Deborah Rush is wonderfully evil as Jerri's stepmother.
Season Two has Jerri dealing with the death of her father, conquering her illiteracy, reclaiming her virginity (or trying to), and befriending a blind student, among other things, all in the show's shockingly hilarious style. Season One is just as good, but by Season Three the quality of the episodes was starting to diminish. Season Two also has a few lackluster episodes but there are more classics than duds. Fans of edgy, satirical comedy will not be disappointed.
I was a huge fan of the show when it was on Comedy Central and taped all of the episodes, but as my tapes are getting worn down I am so relieved that the show has come to DVD! I had worried that the show did not have a wide enough following to warrant a DVD release, but thank god it has been released. The special features are great too as it is always a pleasure to hear these very funny and creative minds talk about their work.
