THE REVIEW

Ahh Beavis and Butt-head. When these guys first appeared on screen, it was almost too perfect. A couple of idiots making fun of the same videos we all did. And they could seemingly get away with anything. They loved their Metallica and AC/DC and hated boy bands with a passion. All they really wanted to do was eat nachos and score with chicks. At least they got to each nachos.

As they became more and more popular, they started adding short episodes that had nothing to do with music, which turned out to be a good idea, since getting the rights to all that music would be impossible. And thus we have Beavis and Butt-head: The Mike Judge Collection Volume 3. It's 3 DVDs worth of episodes, a handful of music videos and a lot of extras.

The episodes are all fairly funny, but they do tend to become similar after a while. I wouldn't recommend sitting down and watching them all at once, because if you do, you'll start to laugh in their distinctive manner very quickly. Which is fine if you're sitting alone in your own apartment watching a rapping Granny, but when you start talking to other human beings, they'll look at you strangely.

I wonder if today's generation of kids would like Beavis and Butthead as much as I did. And to be honest, I really don't know if they would. The animation is crude, but so is South Park. B&B aren't as rude as Cartman and his gang but they do tend to like to try and do illegal things, like drink beer and take chainsaws to things. Back when the show was on, it had a warning label so kids wouldn't think hitting a frog with a baseball bat was a good idea. In this day and age, kids see a lot worse things on a daily basis, so B&B seem kind of tame.

There are about 60 episodes, all running around 5 minutes long. If you appreciate the humor, you'll like all of them. And if you don't, then why are you buying this in the first place? The videos aren't all from big named bands, likely due to the rights issue I mentioned earlier, but it's still fun to watch them love/hate their videos. And the behind the scenes material is fairly interesting.

THE BOTTOM LINE

So overall, it's fairly simple when it comes to Beavis and Butt-head: The Mike Judge Collection Volume 3. If you like 'em, you'll love the collection, and if you don't, I can't imagine how watching this will ever change your mind.
