NewsRadio The Complete Series — Review

Tune into NewsRadio for a hilarious look behind-the-scenes at WNYX, the #2 news radio station in New York City. Starring Dave Foley (Kids in the Hall), Stephen Root (Office Space), Andy Dick (Less Than Perfect), Maura Tierney (ER), Vicki Lewis (Three Sisters), Joe Rogan (Fear Factor), Khandi Alexander (ER), Phil Hartman (Saturday Night Live) and Jon Lovitz (Saturday Night Live), NewsRadio delivers tons of laughs in this 12-disc set featuring all 97 episodes of the series. Bonus material includes hilarious commentary tracks (some of the best I've ever heard), blooper reels, filmographies, featurettes, and more. The only downside is the packaging; the discs are on a plastic hub. but on the bright side it's only $59.95 (SRP) for the complete series. There's no reason to buy this if you already have the season sets, but it offers fans an opportunity to buy the entire series for a cheap price if you don't already have it in your collection.
