You know what I'm pretty sure he is a nice guy, and him sticking around--who knows maybe I'll change my mind if he's given the chance to prove himself the remainder of the season or for that matter A) however long the show lasts and B) however long he stays on the show.

At the same time I'm not going to sit here, sugarcoat my commentary and make it seem like I'm happy-go-lucky about the season. Obviously there isn't too much of a consensus that is 100% in favor of Johnny. Yeah all of us here at the forum understand that doing comedy is not an easy business. This is my main problem: the writing has gone so downhill that the roles given to Johnny make me dislike him plain and simple. But you have to realize, Bobby, that we as the audience to MADtv are not subject to tolerate material we don't find worthwhile; similar to that sense, you as a castmember (alongside the rest of your castmates) are not subject to tolerate the way the show is treating you.

Is anyone else getting the feeling that Bobby introduced Johnny to the casting director just to spite us?

Bobby's back!

Look, I think in all fairness to Johnny, Season 13's been awful. It's all, or mostly all because of the horrible writing. I think Nicole Parker's been bad, Arden's been bad, Jordan's been bad, Keegan's been bad.. the list goes on and on of cast members that were very funny in Season 12 and now extremely unfunny in Season 13.

So I think it's safe to say that the reason Nicole, Arden, Jordan, Keegan et al have been so bad is the writing.

Let's hold Johnny to the same standard as the other four cast members- until the writing improves, it's unfair to expect Johnny to produce A+ material. I'm still waiting out on my judgment of him- although to this point, admittedly, it's not a high one. But I'm certainly hoping he'll do better in the episodes to come.

I too call MADtv on making this move. I've been putting up with this show for 13 years and I don't like how MADtv treats any of its castmembers. The girl only had four episodes and she only appeared once in each one. Yet she proved more with something like Bon Qui Qui, compared to Johnny whose character shows up midseason and leaves people questioning why they still watch the show.

My point is that for the past couple of years, the show has been getting rid of underrated cast members such as Nicole RJ, Frank Caeti, Daniele (who vanished during S11), and the list goes on. MADtv is a mess right now, and apparently they lack one of the most important qualities of life: common sense. I say that because common sense would tell you to keep a strong performer over someone who uses racial humor and doesn't even do a stellar job at it.

5 was overrated but not that bad, 10 was atrocious. IMO, anyway.

5 was still decent even though a lot people accuse it as being the season where the writing started to slip. 10 had it's moments but it wasn't that great because it had like 85 cast members

Without even going back and checking, I can guarantee to almost a complete certainty that no, they weren't.

Looks like the others are waiting on me to dole out the customary "we have no idea" response here. That being the case, we have no idea.

This would be the prevailing logic. Just what are they seeing that we're not, though? Again, we have no idea.

Season 12 was good...but it wasn't the best season ever. It was one of the better ones though.

Side Note - Was Anjelah Johnson and Dan Oster Dancers in the Ipod Commercial with Nicole Parker? Because people in it looked like them.


And how do people get chosen to be either cast members or fp? Like Johnny, Arden, and Mo (wasn't she?) all were regulars right away, now people like Anjelah, Alex B, Nicole P, etc. all started as featured players. Is there a reason for this? Or do they just see more talent in the people that get lead spots right away?

Of course it is. I totally agree.

All right, all right, I'll back off.

Hey, I've since altered my opinion on Season 5 slightly. Now Season 12 is the most brilliant season ever.

And I will also retract my previous notion that you're always wrong, since I've found myself agreeing with you a lot lately. Like this post here--I agree with all your thoughts on Anjelah.

And I honestly don't have any real strong opinion on Johnny either way. I loved the bit with Carlos Mencia (I watched it earlier and laughed my ass off), but other than that, meh. Though, when I think about it, that's probably not a good thing considering he's gotten more airtime than anyone else thus far.

Oh, reeeeeeeeeally? Well, let's see what I can come up with here:
  • Season 5 is easily the most brilliant season ever. It is the standard by which all other seasons should be measured.
  • Season 1 is a rotting piece of dung on the sole of my tattered Birkenstock. Anyone who likes it is just a nostalgic wuss.
  • Ike and Josh -- you canNOT be serious. They were never funny, and their improv sketches are among the worst in the show's history.
  • Pablo Francisco contributed far more quality "MADtv" sketches than that overrated hack Nicole Sullivan, whose very presence tainted the show for years. (Uh-oh, there might be some overlap with the Season 5 theory. Now his head might literally explode. )
Well, that's a start.

Anyway, Anjelah really proved herself only once to me: with Bon Qui Qui. Granted, in nearly everything else that features her, she isn't really given much of a chance to stand out. Again, though, maybe that point just reinforces the idea that she didn't quite grab the powers-that-bleed right away. Are four episodes enough to stand out? Maybe, maybe not. Even though I ain't no Cristabelle fan, she did show early on that she had some creative ideas; so as inconceivable as the possibility may seem, I actually agree with blackwind here (but on this point only, TYWM.) Apparently, Anjelah needed to stand out and show a real ability to contribute creatively. I'm not saying that she would or wouldn't have done so for me personally if I were in the position to swing the axe (mizzimad with a sharp object to wield...not good); I'm just thinking in terms of what "MADtv" was looking for.

While I'm dealing out the shock therapy, I might as well let on that I too have not been too impressed with Johnny Boy thus far. He started out great; however, one standup routine, some potshots at Carlos Mencia, and a seeming willingness to ride Bobby's coattails (or naked booty or...whatever) do not a strong cast member make. Conversely, Anjelah definitely had potential; then again, so have a lot of other FPs who were cut prematurely. Oh well, shuck-ums.

Maybe Ms. Johnson should sue MADtv for how she being used in the series during her stint.

It might show a big flaw among the producers that has been growing since 1997.

Leena *does* look a LOT like Anj -- I almost fell for that myself -- but no, that's not her. Trust me.

(I'd also like to add that I think my thoughts on 1307 were the only time that I've taken an unpopular viewpoint)

THAT I agree with. I guess it makes sense that those would still count, but I still don't think they should since they weren't "real" episodes, just Frankensteined eps. I don't know, it just seems unfair to me, especially since she didn't get a real starring role in either ep.

Though, technically, she was in six episodes. She was the dancer in the Carlos Mencia bit in 1305, and she was in the Fanstastique sketch in 1309.
