At the end of each set, Benson and the featured comic engage in a "tweet off," tweets it seems are an essential element in the Benson arsenal. Each reads a tweet or two from what is supposed to be their Twitter feed in a kind of comic one upsmanship duel. Like the show itself the tweets are uneven. You can get a really witty remark; you can get something that falls flat. Benson has an HIV tweet that is quite effective, and I am not going to spoil the joke for those of you who haven't seen it. There is also some nice give and take with Tiq Notaro who reads her texts because she doesn't tweet.
Perhaps the biggest problem with the DVD is all the interruptions of the interruptions for the commercials. I understand that this is a TV show and they had to cut away for the advertisers, but the constant breaks are truly annoying. Annoying as well is the necessity to open every show with an explanation of the premise. If you are seeing it once a week, you probably don't mind the repetition, but if you're watching a DVD, it gets old very fast. Benson does try to handle the problem by using a different comic bit in the explanation each time, but it is still annoying.
