"This season totally sucks. Damon Wayans was what really put fire into the show, but he left. He did make some comebacks on Men On Fitness and Handi Man, which were the classics. Keenan and Marlon were only on there for half of a season. This was truly the last season of In Livin' Color because after this, all the Wayans sibilings were gone. What really made this season suck were cutting off the original sketches that were funny : The Whitney Houston, Boys II Men, Joe and Latoya Jackson's parody to Michael's "In the Closet", The Jackson Bunch, Prince (WHY THEY DO THAT!?), and Michael Jacksons Black & White (BIG BIG MISTAKE!!!!!! - I'M MAD CUZ THAT WAS THE BEST AND FUNNIEST IN LIVING COLOR SKETCH!!!!!!). Total Ripoff! They don't edit these sketches when they play them on BET (they are on BET now) so for those that did'nt buy this DVD, DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY ON THIS PIECE OF TRASH THAT DOES NOT GIVE YOU THE COMPLETE EPISODES!!! Just tape them on BET! I'm really disgusted and I give this DVD a F-!!!!!"
Show itself is good but...

"Like I said, the show is good but Fox cut sketches which did parodies of music. Such as the Brady Bunch theme for a Michael Jackson/Jackson Family Sketch. And a funny send up of "Black and White" in which Jackson sings questioning if he is Black or White to that famous tune. Disappointing that Fox would do this. I would think most people would pay extra for the complete shows as they were originally aired."
I don't agree !

"i don't agree with anyone who thinks this season is awesome. most of the skits are only 15 minutes in length. once again cheap fox won't buy the music rights. there is sections (i think) that have been either doctored or just cut out. you'll be watching an episode and you'll see the screen mismatch up for a brief moment. you'll think it's your eyes but it's not. thank you fox for butchering all of the seasons of in living color. even though my review isn't that great i still believe that in living color was and is one of the best sketch comedy series on t.v. so they're all still worth buying."
The beginning of the end

"Kinda dissappointing after the first 3 seasons. But it's not so much the fault of the Wayans. Fox censors really started cracking down on them and the skits became more homoginized. This was Keenan's brainchild and he could no longer persue his vision of what the show could be. So, he and Damon basically jumped ship to persue bigger and better interests. Kim and Shawn stayed on a while as well as Jim Carrey and David Allen Grier. I think season 4 also had the last new "Men on...." with men on fitness, which was a scream. And a new Fire Marshall Bill handling the LA riots. Other than that, and the addition of the newest Fly Girl Lisa, the season is lackluster with no focus and no camaraderie. It's a shame that "The Man" had to kill this show."
Not as good as the last ones

"Honestly i was pretty dissapointed with this season. From the very beginning you can tell the show had sold it's soul. In the first episode Keenen Ivory comes out in an expensive suit and tries to talk seriously to the crowd. Where in the other seasons he would come out in jeans and a t-shirt eager to get the show rolling. It's like they wanted to take this season into the mainstream but they forgot that the comedy is what made it so popular. Sure there are still some good sketches. Carrey's fire marshal bill character is funnier then ever. However there is a serious lack of skits on each episode. The fly girls went from being an intro to and from commercials to having two solid 4-5 minute dance routines. That on top of 10 minute rap acts at the end of the show really cut into the sketch time(Some episodes have only 3 skits on them!). You just dont get the amount of pure comedy that you did with earlier ones. It's like they were trying to fit so much other stuff into the show, they forgot what it was originally all about. The lack of Damon Wayans really hurts this season as he had many of the better characters. If you have all the seasons, obviously pick this up. But if your just getting into this series, get season one or two, preferably both. As they are the golden years of this show."
