The Daily Show With Jon Stewart: Indecision 2004

"The Daily Show's" "Indecision 2004" DVD set seems at once inevitable and peculiar. For all the praise heaped on the Comedy Central fake news skein, its election coverage was highly topical by design. As Jon Stewart says in the intro, the content is "completely unfettered by context or relevance."

“The Daily Show’s” “Indecision 2004” DVD set seems at once inevitable and peculiar. For all the praise heaped on the Comedy Central fake news skein, its election coverage was highly topical by design. As Jon Stewart says in the intro, the content is “completely unfettered by context or relevance.”

The five-hour box set devotes one disc to each convention and a third disc to everything else, including election night and debate coverage. “The Daily Show” team predictably plays around with DVD conventions, interrupting commentaries for food deliveries and cell phone calls.

Stewart’s quips about the day’s TV clips, though soothing to jaded news junkies at the time, don’t hold up as well as the segments that could apply to any election, such as when post-debate spin sends Ed Helms into hysterics, or when candidates trumpeting their humble upbringings prompt Stephen Colbert to declare himself the son of a “turd miner.” Such bits are prime examples of the show’s strength: comedy that emerges organically from critiques of American politics, which, it turns out, are often quite timeless after all.
