  • A very enjoyable season premiere of Mad TV with some very funny sketches

    With my only experience of Mad TV before now being Series 1 (which I thought was pretty decent), I was very impressed by this episode. The Rod Roddy sketch was incredibly well done, and I got all the jokes despite having not seen his show, The Price Is Right, before. Another big highlight was the Governers Debate sketch, some big highlights in this one including Gary Coleman, Arnie and loads more colourful characters. I also quite enjoyed the Bible Dude sketch, it was interesting and highlighted the over-exagerration of music piracy (i.e. making it out as worse than murder). That joke about the Pope was so wrong but so funny at the same time. Fake TV was a funny parody of the over exposure of reality TV. The rest was solid, although there's one or two sketches you can afford to skip. Overall, a good episode, and refreshing to see in a time with little good sketch shows left on TV.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (2)

    • In the Tikvah sketch, at the end, the one of the 2 girls (Weir and the other woman) tell Marvin "We can't drive. We're only 14". But the newer girl earlier says, "Since I moved here" & Weir goes "... she's my roommate." You can live with another 14-year-old girl without a parent ... in L.A.?

    • Ron Pederson can't hold himself from laughing in the Marvin Tikvah sketch when Marvin continues his laugh longer than usual.

  • QUOTES (0)

  • NOTES (2)

    • Bobby Lee, while playing Connie Chung in the second Governor Debate sketch, says "He looka like a man", obviously a nod to Ms. Swan.

    • The FOX network censored the line "If it's good enough for the Pope it's good enough for me" during the Bible Dude sketch in which a high school football coach admitted to being a pedophile.
