Reality television shows are like crack.  Sure they’re fun and they keep you entertained, but at the cost of being completely abysmally stupid.  How interesting can real life be?  How voyeuristic can we be to really get that into the lives of others?  Of course there are some exceptions, none of which have ever been or will ever be found on a FOX network station.  And the shining star, the most interesting, the most awkward, the most gloriously hilarious, the most honest, and the most hip of these shows is on MTV.  That show is none other than Rob & Big.

Coming this New Years Day, January 1st 2008, Rob & Big – Complete Seasons 1 & 2 Uncensored will be available for the first time ever in this special four disc DVD boxed set.  Pick it up and ring in the New Year with some great laughs.

Rob & Big is the knock down, drag out hilarious reality show built around the lives of Rob Dyrdek and Christopher “Big Black” Boykin.  Rob is a pro skateboarder and CEO of his own company.  Big Black is his bodyguard, best friend, and roommate.  These are all their adventures.  The buy both a bulldog and a mini horse as pets.  They are constantly breaking into schools to go skateboarding and film it.  Big sees both a hypnotist and nutritionist to try and lose some weight.  They go on two trips to Canada for work and play.  They visit the Boykin reunion and meet Uncle Jerry.  They build a skate park in their back yard and then tear it down to make it into a barnyard for Mini, the mini horse.  And that’s just the beginning.  Everything gets far funnier than what was detailed above.  Much funnier.

The special features included in this four disc DVD boxed set are beyond belief.  There is optional audio commentary for each episode, 35-40 full length deleted scenes, a featurette on the history and friendship of Rob and Big, special footage of both Meaty as a puppy and of Mini Horse, several skate tutorials, special footage of Uncle Jerry, and the entire hilarious music video for “Dirty Girl.”  These special features are often more hilarious than the episodes, particularly the deleted scenes, and when it comes to Rob & Big, that’s saying something.

Rob & Big is the funniest show on television right now.  Make room in your heart for this lovable pair of friends, their friends, and, most importantly, their eclectic taste in animal companions.
