By M. Scagnelli on December 20, 2005
Format: DVD
It's a good time for NewsRadio fans. The release of the first and second seasons in May of 2005 was a dream come true (not associated with Dream Come True Garage Door Openers). As nice as it is to have just the episodes on DVD format, the set included a gag reel, a short featurette and best of all, around 20 commentary tracks from the likes of Paul Simms, Dave Foley, Stephen Root, Maura Tierney, Andy Dick, and the rest of the cast and writers that are still around (Phil Hartman and Drake Sather have both died since the show). Although some fans complained about the video quality (which wasn't great, but was more than acceptable to me), the DVD set was a truly incredible release.

Well, the news has come in, and season 3 is coming out at the end of February (and hopefully that date will not be changed). NewsRadio's third season was when one of, if not the greatest comedy show was at it's prime (which is really the first four seasons, but 3 and 4 are out of the park). I was worried due to the time lapse between DVD releases, which makes it even better news that there will be ten more commentaries, another gag reel, and multiple featurettes (that all sound a bit better than the one included on the first set).

Some of my all time favorite episodes are here...
President - Where Mr. James runs for President and Matthew grow a moustache.

Arcade - Star Gate Defender, SATs and moldy sandwiches.
Daydream - Heat induced hallucinations plague the office.

Movie Star - James Caan visits WNYX and finds out what make Bill McNeil tick.

The Trainer - Dave turns out to be Canadian and the office is shocked. Meanwhile, Bill enrolls at the Ted Chambers gym where he has to deal with the money grubbing antics of Ben Stiller.

I bought the third season of newsradio two days after it came out on DVD. I was excited when I got home thinking I will have about a day and half worth of episodes, and a great gag reel, and some great commentary. I wasnt wrong about the first part. I love Newsradio episodes, the outer space one was hysterical. The tie in to the older movies, and the whole spaz thing were great. The episodes never fail to amuse me.

I loved the gag reel, I always find that amusing.

The commentary I would give half of a star. I thought the commentary was going to be like Seasons 1 and 2, and I kept my expectations high, only to fall flat on my face after hearing the first two. They were horrible and completely unorganized. And I am a huge Maura Tierney fan, and I loved her commentary during season 1 and 2, and I was horribly dissapointed to hear her phone commentary. I was glad that I did get to hear her commentary, and the creative way of having her comment, but it was dissapointing that someone messed up her scheduling, and she couldnt be there. It was amusing and funny, but I wish there would have been more. so I guess I will have to wait until next season to see whether or not they can hold themselves together.

By the third season, the cast of Newsradio was in full throttle. The chemistry was working well, the timing was great, and the writing up to its usual excellence. This season features some of the best Newsradio episodes. Pure comedy based on character interactions; no frilly pranks.

I recommend everyone preorder this dvd to support the release of Season 4.

I am a big Newsradio fan. But in what you expect from a DVD in terms of extras, this third season DVD is far inferior to the DVD for the first two seasons. There are only commentaries for 10 of the 25 episodes; the first DVD had 20 commentaries for 29 episodes. But the quality of the commenatries has completely collapsed. Most are just rambling messes. Quite often, the commentators have no idea about which episode they're commenting on. In one case, Maura Tierney has to be contacted by phone for her contribution. Of course, she can't even see what she's commenting on so someone has to describe it to her. The first DVD's commentary sounded like the participants cared about the program. You don't get that sense of pride in this DVD. And that's a real shame because Newsradio deserves better than these throwaway commentaries.

The first two seasons were great, and I can't wait for the third. The writing is superb, and the characters work very well together. This is probably the best (and most underrated) cast ever assembled for a sitcom. Dave Foley is nominally the star, and does a good job, but Hartman steals the show. Maura Tierney, Stephen Root, etc. are all very talented as well. Andy Dick, who I find very annoying generally, is perfectly cast as Matthew, an equally annoying member of the radio station's staff.

If one sitcom is worth owning on DVD, this is the one.

I can hardly wait for the 3rd season to come out, in fact I can't wait to own the entire series. Dave Foley is excellent and is still underrated to this day. Stephen Root, who is gradually getting more and more roles, but not near as many as he should, shines as Jimmy James, the owner of WNYX. And who could ever forget Phil Hartman as Bill McNeil - maybe his most memorable character ever.

Also, what is quite possibly the great 30-minute sitcom episode of all time will be in this box set. This episode is the one with Bill and Dave stuck in the St. Louis Airport. Classic. You will want to watch it over and over. The episode where Jimmy James runs for president is another NewsRadio Classic as well.

If you are only going to buy one TV series, or even one DVD, then this is THE one to buy. In fact, it is a must own.
