Don't you be mistaking Suddenly Susan for the greatness that was Newsradio.

re: Newsradio is woefully underappreciated. Any other fans?
Can't believe no one has mentioned the Season 3 finale episode yet.

Entitled "Space", I'll let our friends at IMDB describe it for you:
quote:

The gang shows us what a space episode would be like. Matthew dates a porn star robot. Bill goes for a space walk and gets locked outside. Joe accidentally sets off the self destruct system and everybody is forced into hypersleep. Matthew accidentally kicks the cord and shuts down their life support. Bill and Matthew repopulate humanity in the lab.
We didn't deserve this show. It even made Andy Dick seem amusing.

I would love to watch this show. I tried several different ways to stream (both legal & illegal) and couldn't find it.

I was a stoner college student at the time and was way into a lot of those "undergound" type comedy sketch shows - Kids In the Hall, Mr Show(Foley was in at least one episode of it), Ben Stiller Show, SCTV


i was a big 'kids in the hall' fan back in the day and i remember there was a tie-in to newsradio; like they poached part of the cast or it was seen as a 'spinoff'? am i misremembering that?

also the GOAT episode was this one:

Kevin MacDonald appeared on Newsradio for one episode. He was the only Kid to appear with Foley. No other ties to Kids other than that.

So many to choose from...

Smart Matthew (Smatthew)
Bill sabotages Matthew after he's promoted to a meaningless title
Bill quits smoking

This show is one of my all time favorites.

When Matthew puts on the padded suit and they hit him as a stress reliever. So funny

That and the “Big bonus & the shaft” bonus system

The African American woman in the pic is Khandi Alexander, of ER, CSI:Miami, Treme, and Scandal.
Would have never remembered that she was in Newsradio without seeing that.
Dave Foley, who was supposed to be the lead character on the show, is probably one of the 2 least famous people in that photo now.

She was on Newsradio and ER simultaneously, which was pretty impressive in the 90's.

Wasn't Maura Tierney as well, or did her ER stint happen after Newsradio? I wasn't a regular ER viewer, so not sure.

When Newsradio shut down she immediately transitioned to ER for a ten year run there.

re: Newsradio is woefully underappreciated. Any other fans?
Just a great show. The first four seasons are some of my favorite things to re-watch when the itch strikes.

If anyone is searching for a few gem check out any of the following:"Rat Funeral," "Xmas Story," "Coda," "Complaint Box," "The Real Deal," "The Public Domain," "Super Karate Monkey Death Car," or "Security Door."

Talk about a cast that just fit together perfectly. I never much cared for Lauren Graham or Wharburton when they came in; but the show still put out some of its funniest stuff during that time.

If you can located the DVDs, I highly recommend purchasing. There are a bunch of different cast commentaries that just show how well the cast still kind of meshes together.

According to Rogan, Dave Foley deserves even more credit than he gets for his role on the show. He would often just rewrite entire scenes prior to filming.

Great, great show.

Still a damn good show with Warburton around.

And Graham and Tierny on the same screen was a good thing.

It just wasn't the same without Phil. Not much memorable in Season 5 besides Bill Moves On

I've always thought that Maura Tierney was hot as hell and severely underrated.
