Summary of "Season 1 Uncensored - Dave Chappelle is in da house!":
I'm not sure why the authoring was so sloppy on this release. I've had bonus materials that didn't show the time remaining, but the main content allows this about 99% of the time (I think I recall 1 other release that didn't list the time remaining either).

While I found Dave Chappelle to be a really funny guy, I didn't like the racist tones in the show. Is it racism if it's a black man poking fun at other black people? He plays off stereotypes quite a lot: black people are poor, black people are druggies, black people are gangsters. Some of his non-racial sketches are really funny, like the realistic look at movies, "Popcopy," and "NY Boobs." Be on the lookout for some other stars that drop by for a sketch or two.
