Product Description

Martin Lawrence (Bad Boys, Big Momma's House) plays Martin Payne, a brash radio personality who always speaks his mind, often to the frustration of Gina (Tisha Campbell), his feisty but eternally forgiving girlfriend. Always around are Martin's "hang out partners," Tommy, Cole, and Pam (Tichina Arnold), a co-worker of Gina's. Find out wazzup in the outrageous world of Martin.

It's a pleasure to be reminded, after years of increasingly lazy movie performances, that Martin Lawrence was once a hungry, crackling young comic. His 1990s sitcom Martin, in which Lawrence played a radio shock jock juggling the demands of his friends and his girlfriend, was nothing new--it's your basic "gee, men and women sure are different" setup with an African-American flavor. But Lawrence threw himself into the show with gusto. In addition to the central character of Martin Payne, Lawrence played Payne's mother, his trashy neighbor Sheneneh, pompous player Jerome, and numerous others, some of whom were integrated into the main stories, some of whom just appeared in stand-alone segments at the opening of the show. (Ironically, many of the show's fans are more enthusiastic about these side characters than about Martin Payne.) No one will ever accuse Lawrence of subtlety, but his reckless energy is undeniable. That, combined with a good supporting cast (including Trisha Campbell as Gina, his long-suffering girlfriend; Saturday Night Live's Garrett Morris as Stan, his penny-pinching boss; and Carl Anthony Payne II, Tomas Mikal Ford, and Tichina Arnold as Martin and Gina's friends), gave the show a solid dynamic that raised it above the often formulaic scripts. Martin: The Complete First Season includes all 27 episodes; the extras, unfortunately, are only a highlights feature and a standard blooper reel. --Bret Fetzer

Man! It's about time!! News of this one finally being released is great! This one is so anticipated, I'm sure folks will put aside some of their holiday shopping bucks to get this one! Everyone I know still enjoys the repeats of "Martin" on their local TV stations, or TV-One Cable network. One of those rare shows that even leave you laughing even after repeat viewings. Count me amongst the many who are glad it's finally getting its' due. Hopefully the successive season releases won't take nearly as long to be issued on DVD!

Looking over the Target ad on sunday I discovered Martin was out on dvd!! WOW! I've been waiting to long for this. I could'nt wait to get it. The sound and picture quality is excellent! With such a great show HBO should have had a better dvd release. This show was one of the last great TV sitcoms. When I look back at the characters Martin created I think how great a talent Martin Lawrence is. Do you see this type of charactor actor today? not much (Jim Carey?) I was a little disappointed in the special features. Martin with audio only talks about the show with very little enthusiasm. I'm hoping at some point most of the cast will get together and talk about what made the show so good.I hope they take the time with the next season and give more behind the scenes look at the show. Why are they afraid to put a little more money into
this? I can't wait till Season 2!!!!

What else can I say that others haven't? My favorite show of all time finally coming to DVD. I just hope the rest of the seasons don't take forever to come out.

Finally, the time has come!!!! This has got to be one of the funniest sitcoms of all time. I can finally retire my old VHS collection. You have no idea how long I've been waiting for this damn thing to come out! I used to get my fix early in the morning before I went to school, and then late at night on USA before I went to bed. After the show stopped playing in syndication, I was absolutely heart broken. Now my prayers have finally been answered. This is sure to be a hot item, and I'm sure all of the stores will have copies flying off of the shelves. I'm already anxiously waiting for the other 4 seasons to be released. My copy of season 1 is already reserved....you'd better get yours!

I couldn't left this review before the DVD even came out because I think we are all aware of how good 'Martin' is. This is one DVD you will not regret having in your collection. The bloopers are great, and of course the episodes are, too. This is $20 definitely worth spending. And get the second season too! - coming out in May

I along with my friends, have been waiting for this DVD for years.

Finally! Hilarious characters such as Dragon Fly Jones, Old Otis-the security guard, Jerome - the player, Che-Na-NAy, were too funny.

Thank you for finally releasing this.

Missing Scene?
no, that was the episode when Martin couldnt decide on a best man and was playing Cole and Tommy against each other. That was soooooo f'ing funny when that toe nail flew across the room and popped Gina on the forehead. Everytime i see that one, i fall out in tears.
