review by Zach B.

Specs: 1.33:1 Full Screen, English Stereo, Chapter Selection (68 Chapters)

Released: December 4th, 2007

 

 

All the sketches are in 1.33:1 full screen. Given that it's 3 hours worth of sketches squeezed onto a single disc, some artifacting is apparent. I also noticed some shimmering, and a decent amount of mosquito noise and slight edge halos at times. Detail is decent I suppose, and the puppets and sets do look colorful and well-saturated. Things look sharp for the most part, but beware of the slight flaws. 

 

Just like on TV, all the sketches are in English Stereo. The dialogue sounds clear enough: those getting cranked sound more-than-audible (they are actually recorded through the phone), while the crankers themselves are also easy to hear. There isn't too much in way of sound effects, and the musical cues (or the occasional song, such as from the likes of Tenacious D) give a little more of a spark to these straightforward tracks.

English closed captions through your TV are also included. 

 

Nothing.

 

For those who didn't plunk down money for the season sets of "Crank Yankers" and are more casual fans, this set is a good value. There are no extras, but the episodes look and sound fine. Besides: you get three hours worth of amusing (and often crude and gross), hit-and-miss sketches starring puppets. What more could you want?
