Alternate Versions

The NBC syndication version of SCTV was edited and repackaged to fit in with the original half-hour shows in syndication. The original opening sequences do not air in the syndicated reruns, but rather a new composite using the cast photos from cycle 3 with the "malfunctioning equipment" from cycle one, as well as various clips from throughout the syndication, NBC and Cinemax shows for each actor. New syndication package: The version currently running on TV features quite a few music substitutions. See more »

A dream come true
11 June 2004 | by bucksixSee all my reviews

Finally SCTV on DVD. The first 5 DVD's released contain the first 9 episodes from the 90 minute series on NBC. Thirteen and one half hours.

There are more to come. HOORAY!!!!!!!!!!!!

Mine arrived today. Already I have watched the first three episodes. Talk about holding up. After 23 years, these shows are just as funny and refreshing as they were in 1981. In fact, I think I laughed harder today then I did a long time ago. SCTV never took cheap shots or the easy way. Their sketches had wit, charm, and intelligence. They never played down to the viewers. For example, I remember their version of T S Eliot's Murder in the Cathedral. Except they set it around a space shot at Cape Canaveral. One of my sons and I once tried to list all the characters each person played. Try it yourself. You may never get to the end. I could go on and on, but the time I spend writing this is keeping me away from the next episode.

PS

I'm glad my Spam blocker let the e-mail notice for these DVD's from Amazon come through. I bought 6 sets. One for me and one for each of my grown offspring. When they were little I let them stay up late on Friday nights for SCTV. Probably the best thing I ever did for them.
