Blu-ray review: 'Key & Peele: Season 1'

Most of the eight episodes on “Key & Peele: Season 1” are tightly constructed, start strong and end stronger.

As those descriptions illustrate, Peele and Key do their best work on the uncomfortable edge of social satire. The quality falls off sharply on rare occasions, like a misguided rap video parody in episode four that looks and feels like a “MADtv” sketch that did not pass muster with Fox's Standards and Practices department. But “Key & Peele: Season 1” is mostly treading in daring territory, and because they have time to develop this material (they are not working on an “SNL”-like weekly treadmill), the quality control is strong.
