Summary of "Season 4 - Hey mom, I'm on the radio": I loved watching these episodes again, but it was a bit sad watching "Sinking Ship," knowing that it was the last time Phil Hartman played Bill McNeal. I've been impressed with the speed that Sony has released these sets; I think NewsRadio is coming out faster than most of their other sitcoms, though we had quite the delay at the start (of course that was so we could have bonus material, so I'm not complaining).
I saw something in "Super Karate Monkey Death Car" that made me laugh; Rom Jeremey. That's right, the famous porn star was sitting in the seats at Jimmy's book reading. He didn't say anything, and wasn't credited, but there he was sitting in a chair. It was one of those weird, "whaaaat?" moments that sometimes pops up.
Summary of "Season 1 & 2 - Turn on the radio": Yes, this set was worth the wait. I would rather have the set I'm holding in my hands now than the set which would have been released in early 2004. This would have been an average set without the commentary tracks. It should have been a 4 disc set, and I'm never going to back down from thinking that. Add another $2 to the SRP for the extra disc and everyone can be happy. I wanted to see some of this deleted material they mentioned on the commentary tracks, but the footage could have been lost.
