Storyline

Agents Adair, Antoine, Colby and Trotter both monitor and create chaos across the universe. The sketches you see throughout most of the show are different subjects being monitored. At the end of each episode all the sketches and characters come together into one final sketch. Besides all the sketches, they have other segments where the UCB Agents venture out with hidden cameras, and try to incorporate the content of their bizarre sketches into the real world.

Trivia

Each Season of UCB thus far has a running joke that culminates in the season's final episode. The skits will make passing reference to the running joke in each episode of that season. For example: the first season's running joke was the Titte Brothers, a fictional pair of performers. They appear in the last episode of the first season when they perform a charity concert for the Little Donny Foundation. The second season's joke was Supercool, a highly addictive sugar candy. The second season finale focused on the Supercool smuggling ring headed by the UCB. The third season's running joke was Pro Thunderball, a hyper-violent sport that combines football and baseball. The third season finale is a mock-documentary of the evolution of Pro Thunderball. See more »

One word...HILARIOUS!
2 February 2004 | by (Seattle, WA USA) – See all my reviews

I loved it originally on comedy central, but I think it is even better sans commercials on the dvd. The fact that it is just the four of them, and that it is so well written, directed and acted, makes me enjoy it all the more. Shows like "KIDS IN THE HALL", "THE STATE", and "SNL" are ok, but seem silly by comparison. I have been turning my friends on to the show and my copy has become a hot commodity amongst them. Kudos to the UCB. I look forward to season 2, which I hope will be released soon.
