A show mourns . . .
25 April 2016 | by Mr-FusionSee all my reviews

I can list at least ten episodes from TV shows in which a character is killed off - some more overwrought than others - but usually, the actor just wants another gig. Phil Hartman's tragic (senseless) death forced the "NewsRadio" producers to d4eal with that loss . . . somehow. Either mention it in passing or face it head-on. 'Bill Moves On' is the latter option, having the staff of WNYX returning from his funeral and actually grieve on camera. That was no easy task and you ca see the pain on every actor's face' but they muscle through it like consummate professionals. And yet it still feels like a "NewsRadio" episode, and even though I walked into this expecting something taxing, there were some good laughs here.

This deserves high marks for its understated approach. Nothing sentimental, just the characters reading notes left by their fallen colleague. And each one of them are in his voice; they sound like Bill McNeal. That's as close to hearing his last words as it gets.

To address such an imposing elephant in the room, this was a classy way to handle it.

9/10
