This second DVD release is a bit of a big question. Why seasons 8, 9 and 10? They're not even the best seasons. In fact, season 7 was about the last of the funny seasons. They kinda started going down hill after that. I hope the rumour that MAD have decided to abandon complete season releases and release the so called "best bits" is not true.
I wouldn't have even minded if it was a so-called BEST OF Mad TV if they included sketches from the first 6 seasons as well. The best sketches and seasons where when Will Sasso, Alex Bornstien(Ms Swan), Nicole Sullivan(Vancomb Lady), Phil LaMarr(UPS Guy), Pat Kilbane(Mr Spock) Artie Lange(Slob), Bryan Callan(Kabana Boy), David Herman, Orlando Jones but they had all left by season 7 and are not on this DVD and sadly missed.
NOTE: Alex Bornstien does appear in one sketch of season 9 as Mrs Swan. I think that might have been a special guest appearance. But not enough to say she's in it.
This DVD is OK, but it shouldn't have been released like this. I'd much prefer to see them released as a full season OR the very best of MAD-TV which would require a few more discs then just the one 2 hours long one here. You really see the decline during season 8, its ok, but it's far from the best of what MAD TV has done in the past.
The bonus features are worthless. They're about 3 or 4 bloopers of Stewart with or without commentary that's almost as boring as listening to a Farrelly brother's commentary track. They're not great at all.Read more ›
Of course I'll still buy it because I love MADtv, but hopefully in time they'll go back to releasing complete seasons again. I can watch a better mix of sketches and episodes for free every day on Comedy Central.
This compilation definitely features MAD TV's take-no-prisoners style, and I am thrilled that the producers wisely decided to skip ahead a few seasons and give comedy fans a DVD showcasing the tremendous talents of the newer MAD TV cast members, especially Stephnie Weir, Michael McDonald, Alex Borstein, Mo Collins, Keegan Michael-Key, and Bobby Lee. Debra Wilson, one of the original cast members (and one of my person favorites) is also featured. Her "Oprah" is uncanny - it's as if she is channeling her, and the "Oprah Fat Camera" skit featured on the DVD is worth the price of the DVD alone.
MAD TV fans will be happy to see their favorite characters on the DVD - Ms. Swan, Stuart, Dot, Mrs. Campbell, Dr. Kylie, the snotty and sexually ambiguous Abercrombie & Fitch employees, Kim Jong Il, etc. I'm also glad to see that the producers have included several TV, film, and music video parodies for which they are famous. In the guilty-pleasure department, I'm looking forward to seeing the bloopers of "Stuart," one of the strangest and most hilarious characters ever created!
