Must List Live!: An exclusive clip from MTV's long-awaited 'The State' DVD

Posted on

Have you noticed that the comedy geek in your life has an extra spring in his or her step? It’s because today sees the long-long-awaited DVD release of MTV’s early-90s sketch show, The State. Members of the comedy troupe went on to make some of my favorite comedies: Reno 911!, Wet Hot American Summer, Role Models, Viva Variety, Stella, the new Michael and Michael Have Issues…the list goes on and on. Must List Live! has an exclusive clip from the DVD, so check it out: The mark of a great sketch series is when even the old topical clips hold up, and this one does: It may be a takeoff of Footloose, but the teen-movie cliches it mocks are just mockably delicious today.
