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.
