NewsRadio was a quick, fast-paced sitcom on NBC in the late 90s. While it is sometimes forgotten in the midst of other smash sitcoms of the time -- Seinfeld, Friends, Fraser -- it has a star-studded cast who really pack a punch.
Dave Foley, Joe Rogan, Stephen Root, Phil Hartman, Andy Dick, and Maura Tierney all are regulars on this comedy based in a radio station owned by Jimmy James (Stephen Root). Dave Foley stars as the news director who tries to get the station to run optimally but faces resistance from his co-workers, and even station owner James himself.
This DVD has the entire 3rd season of the show (of 5 seasons), where some of the best really starts to shine. Included on the DVD are extras such as character commentary and the gag reel, which features hilarious outtakes that didn't make it to the actual episode.
The video and audio quality on this season are quite high quality with crisp picture and easy to hear audio. For those who are fans of sitcoms, this is a must own DVD since NewsRadio was one of the best and most unique comedies of the 90s. Fans of Foley's other hit, Kids in the Hall, will find him just as hilarious in this third season alongside the late great Phil Hartman who is always at his best.
All the characters are really developed in this season and the jokes are better than ever. If you're a fan of the show, or looking for a new series to get into, check out this DVD!
