Storyline

Dilbert is a cubicle dwelling employee for a large soulless corporation. Along with his cynical and under-motivated co-workers, he labors fruitlessly under the bone-headed leadership of the Pointy-Haired Boss. Occasionally Dogbert, Dilbert's super-intelligent dog, gets Dilbert caught up in another wild money-making scheme, to Dilbert's regret. Written by Mike Konczewski

Trivia

Dilbert and Dogbert don't have mouths in the comic strip, but the animators needed to give them mouths for their dialog. They compromised by giving them mouths only when they spoke. Since the show went off the air, a mouth has been drawn on Dilbert in the comics, usually to show either surprise, screaming, or anger. (Dogbert, however, continues to be drawn mouth-less.)

An under-rated, rare gem.
17 March 2006 | by jappo312See all my reviews

People this show must be the most overlooked, under-rated show ever. It had no exposure. It was on UPN! Think about it: no one watches UPN for intelligent comedy gems do they? or wait -- for anything.

Dilbert, the TV-series, stays almost *perfectly* true to the comic and the voice actors are superb. When you hear the voice for Dilbert and Dogbert on the first episode you'll go "Wow". Right on the button.

Dilbert only lasted two seasons, contained 30 episodes, and was cancelled in 2000. It features celebrity voice talent such as; Jerry Seinfeld, Andy Dick, Tom Green, etc.

DVD includes (some) special features (better than nothing). A "Makeing Dilbert Work" (which it does) featurette, and clip complimations. Also includes some trailers and interactive menus, and is closed captioned. Audio is English.

When you watch this DVD, I'll be honest, it will take about two episodes to get used to it's type of comedy. After that you'll enjoy about 94% of the rest.

I think you'll agree if "Comedy Central" or even "Fox" picked this up, it would probably go a lot longer than two years. IF marketed correctly.

However, some people simply hate this show. I don't know exactly why. Some say it's boring, but I counter with "maybe a short attention span finds it boring". Some say the comic is better. I personally think the TV-show is the same, maybe alittle better.

Overall this DVD is the favourite in *my* collection. I hope it is at least one of *your* favourites.

HUMOR: 8/10 stays true to Dilbert's "wacky" yet "relatable" feeling

PICTURE / SOUND: 8/10 animation and picture is pretty much the same as a coloured comic but much more detailed. Which is good. Dilbert's mouth only moves when he's talking (same as Dogbert's). Animation is better than shows such as "Family Guy" to give you an idea. Voice acting has simply no faults what-so-ever, and the music is very good (although it could have more). As for quality of sound, it's standard.

STORY: 10/10 Some shows really have bad story lines which ruin everything (family guy, anyone?). Dilbert however has good storyline for almost all the episodes and it runs smoothly throughout the length of the series. I'de say it's perfect in a humane way (EVERYTHING has little faults).

OVERALL: 9.5/10 (not an average) Overall it's almost perfect. Add commentary and more episodes (although that cant be helped) and it would be perfect.

WORTH IT? I can't possibly recommend a DVD more than I recommend this one.
