this show is a work of comedic and creative genius.
Mtv is NOTORIOUS for producing short lived works of genius (austin stories, the state, scratch and burn); while leaving terrible shows on schedule (any and all, including the mostly boring punk'd, and the deplorable jackass shows and spins off).
this show is much like the afformentioned show THE STATE, however what makes this show stand apart and is subsequently more creative than the State is that most of their skits are spoken in rhyme...yes, they rap and do so very well, not so much ghetto bling this and that like Snoop dog did in his awful show Doggy Shizzle Televizzle. Rather, SCratch and Burn's skits were more like music videos, and the style of their rap, thematically even, are not too far off from the rap of the late 80s: slick rick, fresh prince, biz markee...and that is a HUGE compliment to this show. it would be a shame if these genius' produced something in the style of 50 cent and his g-unit with their monotonous droning.
i would LOVE to have this show on DVD. but MTV doesn't often believe in it's good shows. M does not stand for Music for MTV, rather it stands for Mediocrity...it's a shame too because SCRATCH and BURN was for a very short time was what kept me watching that channel. and i'm all that matters, right?
