Alfred E. DVD: MadTV's Second Season DVD

I loved MadTV. Always would choose MadTV over Saturday Night Live, any day. I thought it was consistently funnier and more original than SNL from beginning to end. I also wondered why it never got any love. There were no movies with MadTV alumni. No one was walking around quoting or wearing T-shirts that said "He look-a like-a man." Bottom line? MadTV never got any respect. The absolute proof is that they released the first season of MadTV on DVD, and it sold so poorly that they cancelled plans to release any others. Well...I liked it.

I agree. MADTv consistently takes their humor to the next level because they can. I never saw the DVD, but I think it's a simple problem of being upstaged by SNL. If your going to stay up till 10 watching television you don't want Bobby Lee was talking about the show and said everyone has the attitude of killing time till they hit the big time.
Frankly, I can never stay up watching sketch comedy anymore nowadays anyway.
Guess I'm getting older. :)
