I am proud to announce that I am one of those 18-35 year-olds who (nearly) exclusively gets his news from The Daily Show. Jon Stewart and company's critiques of the way the media has slumped into a 24/7 spin machine are both heartbreaking and hysterical.
On to the DVD - I must agree with the other reviewers in that this seems a bit slapped-together. The Comedy Central previews that open up Disc 1 are rather obnoxious, as is the fact that Discs 1 & 2 both have long intro segments (though funny long intro segments) that must be skipped past in order to get to the main menus. Speaking of the menus - the third disc is horribly laid out, with the two live shows buried at the bottom of the screen.
The studio portions of the show are uncensored, meaning that every time Jon Stewart drops the F-bomb you actually get to hear it. Somehow, actually hearing the word instead of the bleep takes something away from the comedy. Most of the pre-taped segments are still censored, however.
While it is nice to have 10 uncut episodes of the show all in one place, I wish that they had removed some of Stewart's more uninteresting interview bits and loaded on more of their election coverage instead.
It has also been noted that the bonus content is rather sparse, and this is true. There are a few commentaries on segments from the third disc - the commentaries heavily feature Samantha Bee, though the other three correspondents drop by as well (including Colbert, even though this is not advertised). Unfortunately, Stewart is not featured in any of the commentaries - though just as well, since they're all fake anyway.
Colbert's studio tour DVD extra is enlightening in that it appears that The Daily Show is produced in the basement of a crack house somewhere - though the Daily Show has moved to a bigger studio, so the segment has become even more irrelevant than it was to begin with.
To sum up - if you're a fan of the show and don't already have these episodes illegally downloaded on your computer, this is worth the purchase just for the historical value. Also, if you don't have cable and have been wondering what all the fuss is about, this is definitely worth a purchase (though if you're at all conservative, prepare to be offended).
So while this is a good first effort at repackaging The Daily Show, I hope that they'll produce a "best of" clip DVD in the future.
