Editorial Reviews

Nothing seems to divide a TV show's fan base more than its final season, and in the case of the fearless sketch comedy series In Living Color, there's no exception. Some feel that despite the departure of series creator Keenan Ivory Wayans, siblings/co-stars Damon, Kim, and Shawn, and standout castmate Kelly Coffield (as well as "Fly Girl" Jennifer Lopez) in the fourth season, the show still had some of its old fire, and that's evident from several of the sketches collected in this box, including several "Dirty Dozens" sketches, "The B.S. Brothers Talk Show," and "East Hollywood Squares" (with Hollywood Squares host Peter Marshall once again as host) The other side of the debate contends that the show had either suffered from too much intervention from the Fox Network (which had taken a more hands-on approach to the show shortly before the Wayans jumped ship), or had simply run out of gas by its 1993-94 season, and its once-fresh characters and concepts had turned from cutting-edge to offensive for offensive's sake. And that's evident on this set as well: Jim Carrey's Fire Marshall Bill seems more forced than ever, and spoofs of Ike Turner, Barney, and other pop culture piñatas seem like easy targets that would've been overlooked in earlier seasons. Still, there are laughs to be found in season 5, and when it works, the comedy contained here is brighter and more outrageous than most of what passes for sketch comedy on television today. No extras are included in the three double-sided-disc set, though a wealth of comedy and musical guest stars, including Chris Rock, Johnny Gill, Shaquille O'Neal, US3, and others add some sparkle to the episodes. --Paul Gaita

Product Description

The final season of In Living Color was as outrageous as the first four, having thrust its courageous cast into stardom, especially Jamie Foxx, David Alan Grier, Chris Rock and Jim Carrey. As usual, nothing was sacred and no public figure was safe, as the hilarious sketches challenged censors and viewers with piercing parody. So bid a fond farewell to one of the freshest, funniest sketch shows of all time with this this 3-disc Collector's Edition, featuring all 26 hilarious Season Five episodes.

A huge mistake!

I haven't bought this DVD set, and I have no plans to because I know exactly what to expect: edited episodes, no extras, and sub-par content.

Sketches are cut, most notably when they sing.

I just got season 5 yesterday and already watched the first side of disc 1. Looks like this season is edited just like 2-4. I did notice on the box it did say edited content for DVD release. I don't know what is missing but so far the episodes are ranging between 15-20 minutes. I HOPE sometime in the future FOX entertainment will find a way to release some of the missing stuff or at least the music video parodies. It's better that we got something than nothing.

Ok, this season had a few funny sketches such as Def Strawberry Jam commercial, Dirty Dozens, and some of the music video parodies such as Snow, Ike Turner, and Michael Jacksons' Billie Jean or Lil' Timmy's Not My Lover - Thats All You Get!!!! Any true In Livin' Color fan would agree with me knowing that season 5 was what really cancelled the series for good. It's bad enough that the series got butchered by many unfunny sketches, but the new actors were not funny at all (except for Anna Marie Johnson from Whats Happenin' Now), the entire Wayans clan dissappeared and Kelly Coffield (she was really funny -why she leave!?) and J Lo left too. Besdies the fine Deedra, you won't see any orginal fly girls and music guest attendance that come out at the end of each episode (Shaq, Eazy E, and Patra)

WARNING - The fly girl's hip hop music will be switched to the generic techno crap on this release. I will warn you that sketches will be removed, such as all of the music video parodies (like what was done for seasons 2-4)

These are really good reasons why NOT to get this because you will waste your hard earned money on a bad season and a half-ass dvd. Do not pay attention to other reviewers that think seasons 3 to 4 dvds plus this are good because they are not. If they want to waste their money on half-ass dvd releases, then let them!! As said before, you can tape the sketches that you want on BET at low low cost because at least you get the privilage to to filter out crap.

I haven't bought this DVD set, and I have no plans to because I know exactly what to expect: edited episodes, no extras, and sub-par content. This is the season where all of the Wayans siblings, along with the highly underrated Kelly Coffield, are gone from the show, and a bunch of minimally talented new cast members are brought in to replace them. Jamie Foxx, Jim Carrey, and David Alan Grier pretty much had to carry the show, and as a result they often came off as obnoxious caricatures of themselves (especially Jim). Granted, there were still some good sketches here and there, most notably the Dirty Dozens sketches, but these were overshadowed by a bunch of sophomoric material. There were also some pretty good music video parodies, but of course they're edited out of this set. So there's not much to recommend here - just record the episodes off BET (where the music video parodies are left in) if you want to see the handful of good sketches from this season, or if you want to get a general idea of what the show was like at that point.

24 minutes was NOT how long each episode was. FOX shows from that time generally range between 22:30 and 23:15, no longer than that. So if the total time you posted is right, we might finally have another uncut DVD set for In Living Color (season 1 being the other). If that's the case, I might just end up buying season 5. I bought 1 and 2, and skipped 3 and 4 due to the large amount of edits. I'll stick with recording those seasons from BET. The replacement music will be the only other issue, but I'd rather have replacement music than chopped up episodes.

This final season is just ridiculous...and not in a good way.

When the Wayans abandon a project, then you know it is unfunny and over. Just look at the Scary Movie films.

Kelly Coffield left because the producers wanted to use Alexandra Wentworth more. A huge mistake! Kelly was hilarious.

Save your money and avoid this stinker season.

I bought Season 5 to complete the series. I was hesitant to buy it after reading some of the reviews but I find this season just as funny as the others. There are new faces and missing faces but it is still worth a watch. It's been so long since I have seen this show that I really wouldn't know what was left out....

Sketches are cut, most notably when they sing. This is insulting to those of us who paid for what we didnt get!

Old Fare...the series had become tired by now. I bought it to round off the entire 5 seasons for my collection.
