Kids In The Hall Complete Season Four (1992 1993)

 

Picture: C+ Sound: C+ Extras: C+ Episodes: B-

 

 

Now that two of our other critics have taken on the follow-up seasons of Kids In The Hall, would I notice any changes or progress when jumping directly to the Complete Season Four? Not really. Dave Foley, Bruce McCullogh, Kevin McDonald, Mark McKinney and Scott Thompson were still cross-dressing their way through most of the skits and though the audience was laughing, that alone was never funny to me.

 

The 1992 1993 season offered 20 more shows, but they are not that much different from the first season and unless you really like this comedy, any box set should be sufficient to meet your Kids needs. Sure, the cast has talent, but doing the same thing over and over holds them back, but the show was a hit and Lorne Michaels just loves to hold on to a hit playing it out to the hilt. Fans will be happy this season has arrived.

 

The 1.33 X 1 full frame image originated on NTSC professional analog and shows its age even three seasons later, with the kind of softness expected from a production of its time. The show is colorful and creatively shot, which makes it easier to watch, so I will give it credit for some good form. The Dolby Digital 2.0 Stereo has no Pro Logic surround information, but is good for what it is. It is good for its time and considering it was from TV. Extras include text biographies of the cast on DVD 1, with DVD 4 offering the rest, including trailers, stills, audio commentary samples and a best of Seasons 2 4 compilation featurette.
