The State (a sketch show that aired on MTV in the early 1990s) had a rabid following in its day, but its unavailability has inspired an even more intense devotion in the years since the show went to CBS to die. Its creators and cast members graduated to many other successes in film and television, but this DVD set of the complete series is something to celebrate, as it represents the starting point for the creative forces behind Stella,Reno 911!, Wet Hot American Summer, Role Models, etc.

That the set (to be released on July 14) exists at all is noteworthy. But if the MTV show site is to be believed, the five-disc release will be “jam-packed” with special features. If the set really is as impressive as advertised, perhaps fans will someday admit that this was almost worth the decade-plus wait.
