The 1990s were a notoriously bad decade for sitcoms. Hundreds of Seinfeld- and Wayans-wannabes flooded the airwaves and, in general, aside from Seinfeld and Sports Night, few had any originality or staying power. NewsRadio is a glorious exception, a bright and occasionally very biting comedy about the workplace which is kindred to Mary Tyler Moore and Newhart more so than to Just Shoot Me. NewsRadio's laughs came from brilliant observations, recurring gags, well-defined characters and logical but wacky plotlines. It was close in vein to Seinfeld's unsentimentality, but far more vicious: one example is in season 3's Daydream episode, for those who saw it, has all the characters experiencing revealing daydreams. It features a vendor whose dream is to be one of the "gang" at WNYX, but as it turns out is hardly known and barely tolerated. NewsRadio invests more in its characters than do most dramas, and never settles for the half-assed laugh-track banality of its contemporaries. This is why it developed such a following, even if it was a very small percentage of the population.

The fourth season of NewsRadio is once again a triumph. With every season, the show kept building upon itself and getting better. There were notable guest appearances: Jon Lovitz has another guest appearance, this time as a suicide jumper exactly one year before joining the cast. Additionally, a pre-Gilmore Girls Lauren Graham begins a stint in this season as an efficiency expert. There were some departures as well: first, Khandi Alexander left the show, despite the fact that her initially poorly-written character had improved a great deal; and, of course, Phil Hartman was murdered by his wife after this season. The knowledge of this invariably tints the experience of watching this season.

Newsradio is a prime example of a great cast having a great time on a great show.

In a word?

Great.

Its also a fitting tribute to the genius of Phil Hartman, an

amazing actor, comedian & allround good guy who met a tragic end.

Buy them for the memories, remember how funny every cast member was & pay your respects to the unforgettable Phil.

Just my favorite show of all time. Unfortunately overlooked by audiences, but it's comedic genious is in every episode which is just so rare in today's comedy arena. Sometimes you miss jokes because you are still laughing from the last joke, which means the episodes have multiple watches. I hope you enjoy!

I just wanted to add to the one's review who did not have information on episode 63.

Episode 63. Look Who's Talking. Dave and Lisa are surprised to learn that Bill is looking into adopting a baby.

I got the complete series, but after reading reviews decided to get them individually. One season had goo on the DVDs, but this one is okay. Sad to think that I just saw the last thing Phil Hartman ever did. There's a video interview of Phil on with Howard Stern on youTube you might like if you're a big fan. You can see his wife that killed him after the show went on break before season 5. Sad. Great show, good quality DVD and there are better extras on this one. This is when the extra materials were getting more popular, unlike in earlier seasons. Also sad to see Katherine leave early on. She had some great lines.

This was Phil Hartman's last season with Newsradio before he was murdered by his own wife, Brynn, who later committed suicide. Phil Hartman was perhaps one of the most talented comedians ever and well-remembered for his impersonations on Saturday Night Live. He was truly a gifted comic and actor. I still sorely miss Phil Hartman more than 17 years later. His tragic death was a great loss to everybody in the entertainment industry and to his fans. He was finally awarded a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame posthumously for television.

The fourth season featured the cast in memorable episodes like the Titanic episode; Phil's Bill adopting a baby; Jimmy James in the balloon; and others. This season begins with Andy Dick's character, Matthew, fired from the radio show and the efficiency expert (played by Lauren Graham) in a few episodes. The cast was always first rate and worked as an ensemble with Phil leading the way. Everybody in the cast was able to shine. Kandi Alexander left the show midseason but they send her off on a high note. She returned for Bill's funeral in the next season. Vicki Lewis was a Broadway musical actress before she came on Newsradio. I always thought she and Kathy Griffin (who was playing Vicki on Suddenly Susan) could have played sisters. The other cast members include Maura Tierney,Stephen Root, Dave Foley, and Joe Rogan who rounded up the cast.

Newsradio never recovered from the loss of Phil Hartman. His friend and former Saturday Night Live co-star Jon Lovitz joined the series. Lovitz also appears in the fourth season opener as the man on the ledge. You can see how Hartman and Lovitz got along in the gag reels. The show would sadly end eventually.
