I need a new VCR, this one has had enough miles of tape roll thru it recording the past 7 seasons of MADtv during last year's reruns on a local tv station, as well as season 8.
I know what you're talking about, I need another one before January myself- w/ c.c. airing them 6days a week!

Finally got around to seeing the episode...

The Olive Garden: Italian family and a black girlfriend. They make fun of how un-italian the food really is. I thought this was only ok and the lines were also ok.

Boy Meets Goy: Parodying Boy Meets Boy show. Anyways, the only thing remotely funny was Andra saying, "that's bull****" and running around and getting lost in the set. Seemed to drag to me.

Kobe Music Video: This is about the Kobe Bryant case. Too long and not really funny. Next...

Sean The Floor Leader: For some reason this reminds me of the male version of a Vancome Lady, but really messed up. I liked the one-liners that Sean would give. I'm kinda mixed about this character, b/c a lot of the name-calling was childish.

QVC: Plus Size Fashion: Mo yellow at the twigs were so funny, and I swear that both Gillian and Stephnie were holding their laughter. I like when they have sketches where they show a mess-up. The fat snaps are a bit outdated, but it was my favorite sketch of the night.

Romance Therapy: WHOA (you gotta see it to get what I mean)!!! That's all I can say. I don't think it was that funny, but actions spoke louder than words. Still a pretty good sketch.

MADtv at the Emmys: I'm starting to get tired of these red-carpet sketches. This is the 2nd one of this season and this is only the third episode. Although, there were some good moments, like most of the cast of Friends not talking to Mo and Paul.

Affleck Insurance: A play of words. Affleck vs. AFLAC. Felt like an AFLAC commercial. Just ok.

MADtv Encore: Hooked On Phonics: This sketch was out of place and was a bit outdated.

Closing: More at the Emmys: Another one of these red-carpet closings? Man...


I am going to disagree with most people about this episode. I think this was a mediocre episode compared to the first two of the season. I thought that there was a lack of sharp writing in most of these sketches.

The Olive Garden - The characters were funny, especially Mo. My only problem with it was that the food looked nothing like what the Olive Garden actually serves...Ritz Crackers? The stuff about the breadsticks being the best part of the meal was too true, though. It was a pretty funny parody.

Boy Meets Goy - This was hilarious. Michael was SO damn funny and Josh sounded and looked exactly like the real guy on the show. Thumbs WAY up on this one. This was the best sketch in this episode, by far.

Kobe Music Video - Blah. Just blah. This was the only really bad portion of the episode. Aries was bland.

Sean The Floor Leader - I really liked this new character. I thought this was supposed to be Ron Pederson's new recurring character, though. Michael was the funny one. I wouldn't mind seeing the character again. He was sharp with his insults and quite funny.

QVC: Plus Size Fashion - Funny stuff here. My favorite line was the one about how eating a cracker didn't count because she put laxatives on it. Mo was especially funny here.

Romance Therapy - This was reminiscent of something that could have easily been in one of the early seasons. It was good.

MADtv at the Emmys - This was much better than last week's red carpet segment with Aries and Ike. It always works better to have a male and a female. Not as good as Will & Alex or Debra doing these segments, but still very funny.

Affleck Insurance - Well, it was short. Wasn't too funny, but okay.

MADtv Encore: Hooked On Phonics - Blah. I liked this the first time I saw it, but it seemed too recent and it was dull as an encore. Oh well. I still wish that they would play older sketches as opposed to something from the end of the previous season.

Closing: More at the Emmys - They should have just included all of this in the segment itself, but it was okay.

OVERALL - It wasn't as good as last week's, but it was still pretty funny. So far this season has been an improvement from last year and I hope it stays that way. I don't know why everyone is making such a fuss over Gillian and Danielle though, I don't think that either of them have done anything too memorable as of yet. I don't have an opinion on them at this point, I'll have to see how they do as the season goes on. I thought that the stand out cast member in this episode was Michael. He was excellent in every one of his appearances. Good stuff, once again. Hopefully things will stay this good. The only sketch that bombed was the Kobe one, the rest was at least decent.

I agree.. Daniele and Gillian fit perfectly They remind me of Jill, which means only good things They're definitely the way to go versus Christina.
As for the other two, when they come.. here's hoping they're good. Aries Spears, even if the impressions are often generic (although not giving him any damn make-up doesn't help).. he's funny and I *WOULD* miss him if Jordan Peele replaced him. Hopefully, Jordan is just a second black guy.. Aries is good but he needs help with some of the black roles.

The Olive Garden--- This was excellent. It was great of them making fun of how ethnic restaurants never quite make the food the same as back in the foreign countries. Thumbs way up! 4/5

Boy Meets Goy--- At first i was annoyed to see another Bachelor TV show parody. But this was hilarious! It reminded me of earlier seasons. Thumbs way up! 4/5

Consensual--- This was actually a pretty good parody. I'm a little sick of music videos but this was alright. 3/5

Sean The Floor Leader- This character was pretty funny. I think after a while, it will get annoying but it was still good. 3/5

QVC--- This was awesome!!! Already, Gillian Vigman fits. The writing was fantastic and the chemistry betwen the women showed clearly. This was one of the best sketches so far this season. 5/5

Romance Therapy--- This was good. A good use of a guest star for once...reminded me of a season 1 or 2 sketch. 3.5/5

Red Carpet w/ Mo and Paul--- This was much better than The Fighting Temptations one. Although it would be nice if more people would talk to MADtv for once, Mo and Paul made up for it. Paul didn't annoy in this...a matter of fact, he should have tried to be MORE outgoing because I think he'd be great at this if he did.

Affleck Insurance--- THis was short and sweet and had a nice ending to it. The duck was great too! 3.5/5

Encore: Hooked On Phonics--- I don't understand why they're using encores so early into the season when good sketches have been getting cut...what's going on here? A good choice at least. 3/5

Closing--- This was alright. 3/5

OVERALL--- This was the best episode this season and probably better than most if even all from last season. Nothing bombed here and there were soe great master pieces as well. The QVC parody was the highlight of the evening. I look forward to having both Daniele and especially Gillian as perminants next season, hopefully. I think this episode deserves a 9/10. Congratulations.

This episode was pretty good. The Olive Garden sketch was really funny because the cast was trying to portray an Italian family and they were showing all these nasty foods. OMG the Boy Meets Goy sketch was sooooooo funny. It was HYSTERICAL!. Michael portraying a girl is just too funny. "This is Bull $hit!" As for Sean the Floor Leader, he's pretty funny and can pass for a recurring character. He spooks me out a little bit but it's better than annoying Rusty. The Love Therapy sketch was pretty good too. I was a little shocked at Michael's hair..it's sooo SHORT! Oh well he still looked good and he was funny.

Are you sure that was Frank? I thought it was an extra.

Thumbs Up

Oh my GOD, tonight's episode was funny. One of the best I've seen in a while I think!

Olive Garden - Funny. When PAUL was gonna' beat RON up and RON just started singing his head off - THAT was funny to me. I loved that so many cast members were in this sketch. It makes is extra funny to see EVERYONE working together. Danielle was a riot - she's fitting right in, I think. And IKE was great tonight, too.

Speaking of IKE, he was also pretty funny in...

Boy Meets Goy - This might have been my favorite of the night. ANDRA was so funny I had a stomach ache from laughing. Way to go Mike! He did something totally different and it paid off.

Kobe Byant Video - this kinda' bored me for some reason.

Shawn The Floor Leader - This was okay, I guess. The sketch just didn't seem to have any shape. It was just the same gag and the same line ("Sneaky Snake") over and over again. Not a highlight to me.

Plus Size Ladies Outfits - I wasn't sure what I thought of this until MO gave them what for. It turned out all right... and at times I couldn't help but laugh.

Therapy Session - Great. Another surprise! I thought I wasn't going to like this because it reminded me of an SNL sketch, but I ended up really liking it. DON sure had an interesting character going on. He was a very entertaining Guest Star.

At The Emmys - Yippee! PAUL and MO cracked me up. I think this is FINALLY the right team to send out for this kind of stuff. They were peppy and quick but they were also likable enough for the BIG STARS to stop and talk to them. Great work! The best team since ALEX and WILL. PAUL was so funny with Jeff Probst and Kim Catrell (when he said they dated for a while, I fell out) and especially that "thigh" thing with Dakota Fanning - BOY that made me laugh. And MO was the best she's ever been on the red carpet! She and PAUL work great together.

Speaking of PAUL...

Affleck - That duck WAS awesome. Was that PAUL, too? It sure sounded like him. A great way to use that stupid commercial and that stupid J Lo/Ben stuff. Smart.

Encore: Hooked on Phonics Violent Video Game - Whatever. Bored with seeing the OLD stuff every week. I loved this sketch the first time... but now I fast-forwarded it. It kinda' is ruining all my favorite sketches for me. I just don't want to see them this way!!! It's awful.

Closing: Red Carpet - WANDA! I love her and she was so quick and funny w/ Paul (telling him she didn't have enough lap for him to give her a lap dance - cheap but funny! Especially for making it all up right on the spot!

I think this episode might be the dawn of a new funny day for MADtv. I hope the REST of this season is not only AS funny as tonight's show... but TOPS it! "Queer Eye" looks promising - it too seems to use almost the whole cast! Did I mention I REALLY like the whole cast working together thing?

THIS EPISODE WAS FREAKIN HELLA FUNNY! THE BEST EPISODE OF MAD I'VE EVER SEEN.

Olive Garden-Hilarious as hell, especially when they kept making fun of Paul's black girlfriend. The whole thing was freaking funny.

Kobe Bryant- Funny, predictable but funny.

Boy Meets Goy- OMG this was just too funny for words, the whole Michael throwing a fit thing was just too freakin funny.


QVC! THE BEST SKETCH OF THE NIGHT! I have never laughed so hard in my entire life, I even woke up my neice, OMG! Stephnie and Gillian were just hella freakin funny, and Mo was just hilarious, I loved that whole "junk in my trunk" deal at the end, the insults were just freaking funny, I actually had tears from laughing so much.

Sean- Very funny, he seems to be a sort of Rusty-ten years from now when he realizes how worthless he has become type of character, it was a bit long but I enjoyed it.

I didn't get the whole Affleck thing but it was short enough to make it funny.


Therapy session with Don Cheadle just freaking cracked me up, it was so great I can't even put it into words how funny it was, all three of them did a good job.

The one and only bad thing was the Encore. Ok first of all 2 encores in 2 weeks. MAD GET YOUR ACT TOGETHER, ENCORES IN MODERATION AND PRE SEASON 7 PREFERABLY. It wasn't funny the second time around

MAD AT THE EMMY'S- Mo and Paul didn't seem comfortable with each other and the jokes seemed really forced. It was still hella funny when they put Mo's name up on the screen like she was being interviewed and when Paul called her name she like did this thing with her finger......Hella Freaking Funny! Then them rolling on the ground at the end......I also loved it when Mo said she was gonna punch Paul if he mentioned his coat one more time.

STUPID FRIENDS CAST BASTARDS! at least have enough freaking courtesy to talk to them, although I have to admit Mo screaming seemed a tad bit creepy and had just a smidge of desperation.

BUT AT LEAST STOP TO TALK TO THEM.......I give Courteney Cox some credit for at least stopping for a few seconds seeing's how MAD had her freakish hubby on the show back in season 5.



Over all I give this episode a 9/10.

I'd like to see them try and top this one.


BTW, When are we gonna see Nicole Parker and Jordan Peele??????

Heres what I thought of Tonight;s Episode:

Olive Garden - This was hilarious...all the food looked nasty...lol

Boy Meets Goy - I frickin loved this...It was hilarious how Michael would get all upset all the time and run around with the boobs bobbin around...haha...that look that Josh kept on makin reminded me of Will's Lance Bass impression..."THIS IS BULL****!"

Kobe Byant Video - This was pretty good....LOL...Teen's Choice..haha

Shawn The Floor Leader - This guy is kinda annoying already...but I enjoyed it...very funny....It was funny how he kept rollina round and bumpin into things....and "After My daddy accidently shot himself in the anus" cracked me up!

Plus Size Ladies Outfits - This was very funny....all of the fat jokes that Gillian and Stephnie kept makin cracked me up

Therapy Session - This was pretty funny...when the guy was pretendin to be the wife and startin huggin and tryin to get on the husband..that was funny

At The Emmys - This was pretty good...

Affleck - This was short but sweet....that duck was awesome..haha

Encore: Hooked on Phonics Violent Video Game - This was funny...I enjoyed it the first time...enjoyed it this time too...wish they would have really old Encores though instead of ones that seemed like they just happened yesterday...

Closing: Red Carpet - Another waste of a closing...*sigh*

Overall this has been the best episode so far this season...that I have seen....Keep up the good work MADtv!
