Some of this season's most memorable episodes subvert these singularly weird characters. In "Flowers for Matthew," a new "smart drink" transforms Matthew, the office's "silly little monkey," into "Smart Matthew" (or "Smathhew"). In "Noise," high-strung Dave mellows out after Joe (Joe Rogan) builds him a white-noise machine. A story arc that will reverberate throughout the season finds Jimmy James on the lam after the FBI accuses him of being the legendary hijacker D.B. Cooper. Patrick Warburton, who like Lovitz simply sounds funny, guest stars as James' arch nemesis, Johnny Johnson, who has designs on his business empire, and later, on reporter Lisa (Maura Tierney). Another memorable guest star is Tiffani-Amber Thiessen as Lisa's bombshell new assistant, who devastates brainy Dave and brawny Joe. NewsRadio deftly melded physical comedy, out-of-left-field situations, sparkling dialogue, and bizarre grace notes (the wacky outfits of Vicki Lewis's "red-haired temptress," Beth). What makes this set especially News-worthy are the extras, including 10 entertaining commentaries with cast and crew members and a generous gag reel. To quote Bill McNeal: "Salut!" --Donald Liebenson

Sad start to Season 5, but a great tribute to one of the best comedic actors, Phil Hartman. Even in a sad episode, the writers still capture Bill McNeil's character perfectly with... Read morePublished 8 days ago by Mark M.

It skips and sticks and is a horrible quality. I didn't watch it until it was too late to return.Published 13 months ago by J. Craft
I think after Phil Hartman died. He took all the comedy with him. The Fifth season was bad. The actors just gave up and didn't know what to do. They were still in mourning.Published 16 months ago by K. J. Moore
