Big News!

MTV has finally gotten off its ass and is putting out one of the greatest sketch comedy show in the history of sketch comedy shows. They're also putting out "The State!"  When? July 14th, Bastille Day, which is a French holiday commemorating all the Bastilles. Here's the official announcement from MTV:

Is this exciting? I guess so. Here's my fear about it: people often remember things as being better than they were. The first Thanksgiving, for example. People think, "Oh it was so great." Guess what? There was too much corn, not enough turkey, and a lot of scarlet fever. I'm definitely not saying getting The State DVD is going to cause scarlet fever, but then again, who's to say? I mean, medical science has made a lot of advances over the past three hundred years, but they still have no idea what causes scarlet fever (except for the fact that they do know).

So yeah, the State is coming out on DVD. If you want to see the trailer for the DVD, I've posted it below.

Tiffany

Ah. . the State. Didn't someone give you guys Negative Two Stars which is two stars less than no stars at all?

I can't wait for all that delicious latent Peter Panism.

Oh frabjous day!

AxsDeny

It's about time!

Lisa

Hooray!

Awesome Robot

Will it include the CBS Halloween special? I taped over part of that.

I wanna take that DVD box....AND DIP MY BALLS IN IT! Can't wait for The State!

Ryan

Let's just say I'll believe it when it's in my DVD player.

Jeni

Best news EVER

Ariel

You're right. I hope I don't really hate the show now. That would be the worst Bastille Day yet.

Ryann

It's about damned time!!

smapte

hooray! one of my all time favorite shows.

I'll have my $240 worth of pudding at the ready. May even wear tape on my face until then in celebration. The Gods shine down upon Earth at last!

Dichtenstein

The trailer was glorious, and now I'm going to cry. For the entirety of the one-minute, nineteen-second video, I pounded my fists jubilantly through the air. During and possibly because of this groundbreaking news, I hit my mahogany dresser really hard. And now I'm going to cry.

Thanks a lot, Michael Ian Black. You made me cry.

tom

Awwww yeah, that's a lot of puddin'.

Cousin Chris

Exciting - why is half the text is cut off in the YT video?

Mr. Jay

THERE IS A GOD AND HE MAKES ME HAPPY IN MY PANTS.

TheJamesD

I'll dip my balls in it

Taylor

Awesome! I'll be there with bells on. Well, "there" meaning I'll eventually purchase it. And "bells" meaning pajama pants, as I'll probably order it online.

Regardless. Yay! Fantastic news.

Langor

Yes! MY CROTCH JUST ROCKETED INTO ORBIT! Great news! Literally my favorite show! Question though: is it new music or the original 90s soundtrack?

Jamie

Freakin' finally!

I hope my emotions aren't being played with again! I can't take any more teasing!

Red Cobblers

Oh joy, I think I came a little in my mouth! Wait. That doesn't sound right.

Joanie

Will I like the same things now at 30 that I liked at 16? Probably. I talk about the show ALL THE TIME. I don't even know if I remember it accurately! I have faith that the show will not disappoint.

Michael

Fishibar!

Joanie

Showalter is awesome. Maybe I can bring my cat and he can bring his cat, or if he has more, that's okay. We can meet up and play with our cats. See how things progress. Who knows?

Kris

This is the best day ever! I can't wait to give MTV my money.

Boy, that last sentence is something I'd never expected to type or say.
