I am a fun fan of anything that comes out of the mind of the comedy duo Tim and Eric from “Tom Goes to the Mayor” to “Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!”. So I understand their rare brand of comedy and obviously this is not for everyone. John C. Reilly is total gold playing Dr. Steve Brule. “Check It Out with Dr. Steve Brule” is a fantastic spin-off from the madness that was created by Tim and Eric. The show itself is even more awkward that its predecessors but it works…oh so well. I recommend this show very highly…for your health! Where’s season three Adult Swim?
“Check It Out” Season 1 and 2 includes all 12 episodes from the series. It is a parody of a local market’s news magazine show starring Oscar-nominee John C. Reilly as Dr. Steve Brule. Each week our host Dr. Brule will introduce his audiences to local celebrities and interesting things around town as well as providing health and lifestyle tips. Produced by John C. Reilly ands Absolutely Productions.
I was hoping for some great special features here but they are most M.I.A. The only present extras are some deleted and extended scenes. They are a nice continuous of the show but I feel like they could have done so much more. I would have loved to seen some commentary tracks from Dr. Steve Brule and maybe even Jan and Wayne Skylar all in character. But nonetheless, this DVD is a must purchase for all fans of Tim and Eric’s work and those looking to see Reilly in one of his most zaniest and funniest performances.
