About 3/4 of the way through season 3 of INTO THE BADLANDS. Too bad there won't be a season 4.

NEWSRADIO is hard for me to watch without feeling a bit of rage, knowing that Andy Dick was partially responsible for Phil Hartman's death. 

Should finish INTO THE BADLANDS either today or tomorrow, then its probably on to season two of THE ORDER.

I didn’t get into NEWSRADIO until syndication. In first run I was kept away by Andy Dick and Phil Hartman, neither of whom I liked as actors. I eventually got to a point where I could “enjoy” Matthew as a character, but I couldn’t stand Bill McNeil.

NEWSRADIO was one of my favorite shows when it was originally on. I saw every episode, and a good chunk of them I saw at least twice. I was a fan of both Phil Hartman and Andy Dick. Hartman was one of the best performers on SNL when he was a cast member, and loved just about everything he did, aside from his "Anal Retentive Chef" character which should really have been a one-time only bit.

But I cannot watch anything with Andy Dick in it any more, because just like Jon Lovitz (who has actually physically beaten him up), I feel he's somewhat responsible for Hartman's death. 

And believe me, I get the Bill McNeil hate. Despite being a Hartman fan, I thought they made the character too much of a pompous jerk.

Dave and Jimmy were my two favorite characters.

I also watched NEWSRADIO, and stuck with it until the last season. I just love
the humor - one of my favorite elements is that Dave is a fan of GREEN ACRES,
a nod to a great show with a similar approach.

Besides Lovitz being weaker than any other character, I have no issues with
the cast. It's rare to get such a strong ensemble - the other shows that are in
this same league are 30 ROCK and PARKS AND RECREATION.

Been watching Kids in the Hall clips on Youtube. Brilliant show years ahead for
what most tv was airing at the time. Getting into The Doors record store is still
a favorite segment that holds up. I'm still looking for the one where I wanna
say Bruce decides not to go to school so his "Dad" calls off to teach him a
lesson about hard work then his boss then the whole world takes a day off I
think it ends w the Dad yelling even more at Bruce at what he started.
