Product Description

Two snaps up for In living Color on DVD! This is the first season of the comedy that crossed every line with their raunchy, crude humor and introduced a new generation of talent including Jim Carrey, The Wayans and many more. See classic sketches Men on Film and Homey the Clown on this 3-disc set that is loaded with behind the scenes extras.

Unlike the original Saturday Night Live cast, the In Living Color ensemble was definitely ready for prime time. But, was prime time ready for In Living Color? This subversively funny 1990 sketch-comedy series boldly went where SNL feared to tread, particularly in matters of race relations and cultural stereotypes. Series creator Keenen Ivory Wayans was hot after his hilarious blaxploitation spoof, I'm Gonna Git Ya Sucka. But In Living Color was hotter. According to a "Looking Back" segment included in this three-disc set, it took him a year to sell the pilot. He fronted a young, gifted, and mostly black cast, including David Alan Grier, Tommy Davidson, Damon Wayans, Kim Wayans, and T'Keyah "Crystal" Keyman. "James" Carrey and Kelly Coffield were the white Garret Morrises.

Like the first season of SNL, In Living Color played provocateur, with such politically incorrect sketches as "Homeboy Shopping Network," "This Old Box," and "Ted Turner's Very Colorized Classics." Other sketches, such as "Riding Miss Daisy," have a stick-it-to-the-man brazenness. Don King, Mike Tyson, Milli Vanilli, and Arsenio Hall are easy targets, but In Living Color did not spare such icons as Richard Pryor. There is the inevitable Oprah roasting, but also a brilliant Star Trek spoof, "The Wrath of Farrakhan." Among the first season's breakout characters are Damon Wayans and David Alan Grier's finger-snapping "Men on Film," and Damon's Homey D. Clown. Carrey struts his stuff as "female" bodybuilder Vera DeMilo. Coffey is a scream as Samantha Kinison and Andrea Dice Clay. While much of the topical humor has dated, sketches such as "Michael Jackson Potato Head" are timeless. The fun of revisiting this groundbreaking series is watching these fearless and talented performers go for broke, and make the most of their unlikely opportunity. --Donald Liebenson

"In Living Color" was so fresh, energetic, and hilarious when it first hit the Fox airwaves that you wondered how it could possibly keep up that level of entertainment. Well, it couldn't, exactly, but those first few shows, and many moments during the rest of the season, were insanely funny and groundbreaking.
Like all good sketch comedy, "In Living Color" immediately set out to create its own collection of recurring crazies (rather than the current SNL-method of mostly relying on celeb impressions), and look at how many still resonate: Fire Marshal Bill, the Men on Film, Anton, Homey...and so on. The show's genius is that it went for laughs anywhere it could - it could be richly satirical or downright silly and scatalogical, often in the same sketch. It basically counted on the intelligence and variety of its audience in a way that we haven't seen since, except maybe with "The Daily Show." "In Living Color" was edgy to the point of discomfort sometimes, but we wanted that too - everything else felt saccharine and safe next to "ILC," and we were ready to push some boundaries.
Eventually "In Living Color" would degenerate into low-minded skits based on grotesque impressions, gross-outs, and cruelty. But for one brief shining moment - captured on this DVD set - we all wanted to live In Living Color.

Wow, after all these years, the first season of In Living Color is being released on DVD. I'm so excited to see Men on Film/Football/Vacation, Homey D. Clown, and the rest of one of the greatest comedy shows of all time. It's where Jim Carrey got famous, and we all learned the best ways to insult someone's Mama. For anyone who loves to laugh for long periods of time, this is definitely a buy for you. Am I going to miss out on this set? I don't think so... Homey don't play dat...

Alot of sketches have been edited or deleted, like the Tommy Davidson Mc Hammer sketch. If Fox is going to advertise that they are offering Season 1, you'd think that it would be as it was, in full. Don't get me wrong, what they do give is still one of the funniest shows that ever aired, just wish it was unedited. This is something they should state on the DVD jacket.

When I first bought this DVD, there were two types of people. Those who looked at it and said "What's this?" and those who looked at it and with a wild gleam in their eyes said "Where the hell did you find this?!" You either loved In Living Color or you'd never heard of it before.

ILC was so ahead of its time with humor, it's political incorrectness (now typical of famous comedians like Chris Rock, Dave Chapelle, etc.) and all around innovativeness. It also introduced us to some of the funniest men in TV/movies (Damon Wayans, who stole every skit he was in, David Alan Grier and James "Jim" Carrey). Later on it would also feature Jamiee Foxx and Chris Rock. But that was in the later post-Wayans years when the show sucked.

ILC was brillaint and for anyone who watched the show (and therefore loved the show) Seasons 1, and the even funnier Season 2 are a must-have. Oh, and there's a skit in Season 1 where a little black girl is talking about her wish-list for the future and one of the things on the list is hoping that Nelson Mandela is freed from jail. Wow. Yeah, this is old school and things have changed but good humor never goes out of style. The outfits of the flygirls though, that does. Yikes!

This is more like it!! Although this was only the begining, it was still a proper season for In Living Color Series. Like what was said in one of the reviews for season 4 (Keenan slowly coming out in an expensive suit, no hair, talking serious to the audience and you don't see him anymore for the series), this is the opposite. Keenan was always fired up with starting the show and introducing all the fine fly girls (each of 13 episodes) and in this season, they kept the music video parody sketches and the fly girls' dance music to original songs (3Rd Base and Kid N Play). For the begining, there were no Funky Finger Productions, no Frenchie, no Prison Cable Network, no Fire Marshall Bill, no Principle Macalfee, no Handi Man, no Head Detective, and only one Benita Butrell & Homey The Clown. The show still grew alone with the following sketches that had me screaming like a "White lady in church" when I first saw them in 1990 (and still screaming today):

1. Hey Mon Airlines

2. Cookin' With Salt N Pepa

3. Young Don King Sketch

4. Whitney Houston Rhythmless Nation

5. Benita Butrell (although one sketch)

6. The only Homey The Clown sketch on that season

7. Men On Film, Books, and Art (Hated It!!! The unheard of Zorro Snap in Z formation!!! - LOL - a total scream)

8. Lil' Miss Trouble

9. I Love Laquita

10. The Equity Card Commercial (Kiss My Butt Bitch!! Approve My Credit!! - I was dying on the floor)

11. Milli Vanilli sketch (DON"T FORGET OUR NUMBA!!!" - LMAO on the floor)

12. All Homeboy Shopping Network Sketches (MO MONEY, MO MONEY!)

13. Lil' Magic

14. MC Hammer sketch (too funny!!)

15. Oprah sketch

16.
