Default Got to thinking...

after reading a post here about Mo...

When an actor/ actress on MO TV " breaks character " why doesnt the director do another take?

Just wondering...

1. To make it feel more live like


2. They probably do.......its just that THAT particular one was the best take they had and with the limited budget that Mad has, that it's impossible to keep doing take after take after take.....

That's what I think too. They probably can't afford enough film to retake every sketch so that it is perfect (shows how little FOX cares about one of its longest-running shows). While I think breaking character is unprofessional, it does give the sketches a feel that cast members laugh too.

I agree....it gives you the feeling that person under the character is real, just like us....

One of them was in a Miss Swan sketch..
Will (in his hyper yelling way): Well what do you want me to do huh?!?! Tell me what you want me to do!!!
Swan: Maybe not so biga acting, you know... maybe regular acting

HAHA, When I saw that I knew it was improv. so funny..
Yeah, I remember that, I love that line- great. LOL

heehee I love that one. And the Stuart when he's going to his dad's for the weekend,and Doreen called him hyper,and he goes "I am not hyper! Look what I can do" and does that crazy thing with his legs making noise,and Mo tries so hard not to erput into a laughing fit,and she says "That suits not gonna hold!",which is great improv right there. And when she goes "I am definatley gonna have you checked!" heehee. And the look of total satisfaction on Michael's face makes it all the better!

OoooO and the sketch with the O'Malley's,and Michael starts jiggling his stomach,and Nicole couldnt get her line out from trying not to laugh. I find it soo funny when that happens
