Finally: The State Is Coming to DVD July 14!

Many folks know Thomas Lennon, Keri Kenney, and Robert Ben Garant as members of the bumbling police force on Reno! 911, and Ken Marino as any number of characters on TV (Professor Wilder on Dawson's Creek, Vinnie Van Lowe on Veronica Mars, currently Shep on In the Motherhood and a sweet, gay demon on Reaper). David Wain is now known largely as writer and director of movies like Wet Hot American Summer, The Ten, and Role Models, while actor Michael Ian Black starred as Phil Stubbs on Ed, among many other stints on various TV shows and movies.

But to me, all of these people will forever and always remind me of The State, the MTV sketch show they created and starred in for a precious few seasons. Though the series has been off the air since 1995, DVDs of the cult hit still weren't available to its enthusiastic fans — until now! The complete series will be on DVD as of July 14.

Finally, I can retire the VHS tapes on which I recorded the show (yup, I kept them and watched them regularly) and proudly replace them with a shiny new set of DVDs. Also, whole new generations can be introduced to the fun and weirdness that is Doug, Louie, Barry, and Levon, not to mention sketches like "Monkey Torture," "Porcupine Racetrack," and "Tenement."

If you know what I'm talking about, you may be as psyched as I am. And if so, what's your favorite State sketch? To see a video announcement about the DVD (complete with a rapid-fire montage of classic scenes),
