It was clear that NewsRadio was something special. Here was a show that, rather than expecting its audience to ignore the strangeness of a multicamera sitcom and instead played into it, crafting episodes with the breakneck absurdity of classic farce.
Still, NewsRadio boasts a rich setting, droll characters and some fine actors... Hartman's comic brilliance will remind you how sorely Saturday Night Live misses him.
The crispest, wittiest and most delightful new sitcom of the season making as self-assured, clever and distinctive a debut as Frasier did last season.
Always had a healthy appreciation for the eccentric and the absurd, which helped the show transcend its borrowed roots.
