Summary of "The Best Of Seasons 8, 9 & 10 - Funny Show":
I had a lot of fun watching this release. While *I* may be fine with a "best of" release, I'm sure there are a number of people that want more season sets. Mad TV hasn't resulted in the success of Saturday Night Live, which has spun-off numerous movies, but it's a pretty good show. I had to laugh at some of the characters like "Stuart," "Tank," and "Bae Sung." The parodies of Lord of the Rings and Lost were great, and I loved some of the guests they had on the show.

This is a decent "best of" release. The bonus features are rather lame, especially the commentary by Michael McDonald, but the release delivers almost 3 hours of laughs. (read entire review)

Summary of "The Complete 1st Season - You are watching MadTV":
Okay, so this is probably one of my favorite sketch comedy shows now, sitting behind Kids in the Hall (of course). They had a number of memorable characters in the first season, but I liked that they don't overuse them, because that could get old very quickly. The show has a nice mix of animated shorts tossed into the live-action pieces. I used to love playing Spy vs. Spy games on my computer, and those were the first bits I read in the magazine, so it was nice to see animated shorts in the show. There were a few memorable people in season 1; Orlando Jones, Phil Lamarr and Bryan Callen are the standouts. I kept trying to remember where I had seen Callen before, and then I remembered; Oz. Jones has been in numerous movies, and LaMarr has done a lot of voice work (Futurama, Samurai Jack).

I think two of my favorite characters would have to be the Vancome lady, and the UBS driver. Man, oh man, I bet LaMarr was out of breath after playing the UBS guy!

If you're like me and ignored the show when it was first on, skip the reruns on Comedy Central and pick up the DVD set. Warner Bros has done a nice job, and it's a hilarious show. (read entire review)
