Is this the best video game adaptation yet? If so, that isn't saying much for the genre! D.J.

Beavis & Butt-Head: The Mike Judge Collection, Vol. 1 Review

Brainless couch potatoes or cultural icons ahead of their time? D.J. Nock ponders the case for Beavis and Butt-Head; a classic show presented rather controversially in this 3-disc set from Paramount.
