Commentaries, interviews, hidden treasure and other special features round out another stellar collection of programming from Guy Caballero’s experiment in television. SCTV is on the air...and you will be on the floor.
And loaded with over 90 minutes of special features including new & unreleased material:
*Larger Than Life: The Norman Seeff Photo Sessions
*SCTV Remembers, Pt. 2
*The SCTV Writers
*The Juul Haalmeyer Dancers
*Behind-The-Scenes Photo Gallery
*SCTV At The 1982 Emmy® Awards
THIS 5-DISC BOX SET INCLUDES:
*Nine 90-minute episodes from the NBC seasons with the comedic talent of Eugene Levy (New York Minute, American Pie, A Mighty Wind, Best In Show), Catherine O’ Hara (A Mighty Wind, Best In Show), Joe Flaherty (National Security), Andrea Martin (My Big Fat Greek Wedding), and Dave Thomas (Who’s Your Daddy? ), Rick Moranis (Honey, I Shrunk The Kids) and the late John Candy.
*Deluxe DVDigistak style package with graphics behind the clear trays in a sturdy slip-case.
*Performances by musical stars Al Jarreau, The Plasmatics, Natalie Cole, The Boomtown Rats, The Plastics and Talking Heads.
*Commentaries by Dave Thomas, Dick Blasucci, writer John McAndrew, Andrea Martin and Catherine O’Hara.
Other moments for the pantheon: Meryl Streep blowing up real good on the "Farm Film Report"; Bob and Doug McKenzie demonstrating how to stuff a mouse inside a beer bottle; the cross-parody "Benny Hill Street Blues," and the late Wendy O Williams and the Plasmatics really cutting it up (with a chainsaw!) on Gil Fisher's "The Fishin' Musician. Some of the more topical bits are understandably dated, and that canned laughter reeks of network Zontars imposing their will, but this second, equally indispensable volume rescues SCTV from mere cult object of obsession. Original cast member Harold Ramis is right: In Thomas's encyclopedic history, SCTV: Behind the Scenes, Ramis observes, "Everyone just got better and better. You would notice, if you had the time to sit and watch all the shows, the progression in excellence." --Donald Liebenson

Having seen most of the SCTV episodes when they first aired, I enjoyed watching them again. The paradies and subtle"digs" at television in general help you understand why... Read morePublished 20 months ago by Jake
This one has the Godfather, CCCP1, and other classics. I think SCTV was the best sketch comedies every produced in North America. Read morePublished 21 months ago by Gregg

I had originally become hooked with SCTV when its early Toronto years were in Rhodes Syndication, broadcast in the late 70's, usually around Midnight. Read morePublished on December 14, 2010 by L'escribe
This is a short review for a program that was long on brilliant comedy. SCTV was possibly the pinnacle of humor on TV since the invention of the medium. Read morePublished on February 23, 2010 by Sir Gerald Wordsmith
More laugh out loud comedy from SCTV. If you've never seen this parody of a TV Network you are in for a treat.Published on April 25, 2009 by Labrava
Well you've seen all the other reviews, here's my take. The material is awesome! The commentary with Martin and O'Hare is ridiculous, they were clearly drunk and often incoherent... Read morePublished on June 4, 2007 by Rude Boy 1979
