Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job! Season Cinco (DVD Review)15 May, 2011 By: Ashley Ratcliff
Stars Tim Heidecker, Eric Wareheim, Richard Dunn, James Quall, Harry Elmayan, Rainn Wilson, LeVar Burton, Zach Galifianakis.
Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim are back with another delightfully awkward batch of comedy sketches in Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job! Season Cinco.
Indeed, it takes a special kind of person to appreciate pubic hair milkshakes and bare-bottomed brothers singing about the joys of spanking. If you’re a fan of the show, you’ll especially enjoy this final season, which has 10 episodes rife with more of the same offbeat humor that Heidecker and Wareheim effortlessly accomplish.
Joining them in their zany antics are Zach Galifianakis (The Hangover), Ben Stiller (Little Fockers), Danny Trejo (Machete), Jack McBrayer (“30 Rock”), Rainn Wilson (“The Office”), Will Forte (“Saturday Night Live”) and more. A faux-bearded, cane-wielding Will Ferrell hawks child clowns, while Paul Rudd shakes his moneymaker in unimaginable ways for himself on a computer screen in two of the most memorable sketches.
The show wouldn’t be complete without commercials for inane Cinco-brand products, and this season offers them in abundance, with the “Diarreheaphragm” and the “i-Jammer” kid’s toy.
Tim and Eric go all out for the season-ending holiday special. Words cannot convey the ridiculousness of it all. You just have to watch for yourself. I must warn, however, that lactating man nips aren’t for those with weak stomachs.
Season Cinco is bursting with extras, including deleted and extended scenes, a blooper reel, and a tribute to the late Richard Dunn, who appeared in some of the show’s most bizarre sketches. A pleasant surprise is the karaoke video section, offering sing-alongs to season favorites such as “Gonna Be a Mommy,” “Insect Woman” and “Little Danson Man.”
“Tim and Eric Awesome Show” ended at its peak, but with the comedic genius of Heidecker and Wareheim, fans undoubtedly will have plenty to laugh about with the pair’s future ventures.
