That thing with Britney Spears and Will Ferrel last week was fucking genius. "ALL OF OUR ANIMALS ARE SICK!!!"

Revive, as I feel a bit left out.

Everyone keeps banging on about SNL and I've never seen it - indeed, living in the UK with no Sky means I probably never will. Is there like a SNL Best Of DVD around? Or should I not bother - is it over-hyped rubbish?

Johnney B (Johnney B), Wednesday, 14 April 2004 12:12 (twelve years ago) Permalink

You can buy best of dvds for a number of different castmembers throughout the years. Good ones would be Bill Murray, Chevy Chase, Chris Farley, Phil Hartman, Will Ferrell, and Tracy Morgan. Not sure if those last two actually exist.
Personally, though, I only think the show is fun to watch when it is live. Sounds silly, but it seems more exciting. Also Weekend Update is always my favorite part and I don't think they would be on the DVDs.

i've gotten back into "live from new york" (god i love oral histories) and man is it a great read. i reccomend it to everyone. also, best bathroom book EVER.

That book seemed a bit too "authorized". Everyone seemed to be saying the same thing: "Lorne Michaels is a bit obtuse and aloof, but he sho' know what he's doing!"

I liked the bit about Larry David. The part with him and Dick Ebersol standing by the elevator sounded just like something out of "Curb Your Enthusiasm".

make talk about the old snl. converse about the dim bulb sketch.

foolhardy, Wednesday, 25 May 2005 01:01 (eleven years ago) Permalink

It dipped to pretty serious levels of suckitude this spring -- mostly so-so premises that proceeded to go someplace even worse than nowhere -- but then the season finale was actually reliably funny. Will Forte seems to be the most enjoyable one, now that Maya Rudolph's started to seem less like an exciting newbie and more like she's trying to carry whole awful concepts on the shoulders of her talent.

but if we're doing s/d i'll still rep for that one sketch a few years ago where ana gasteyer (right?) played celine "i am de greatest seenger een allll ze worrrld!" dion.

I'm with the late Michael O'Donoghue: hasn't been edgy since 1976, consistently funny since '78-79, worth watching since Mike Myers left.

Dr Morbius (Dr Morbius), Wednesday, 25 May 2005 13:05 (eleven years ago) Permalink

wow did o'donoghue say that about myers really?

j blount (papa la bas), Wednesday, 25 May 2005 14:55 (eleven years ago) Permalink

oops... I meant NOT worth watching. And that one was mine.

The M'OD bio "Mr Mike" is worth a read. He bitched when the original cast started to do recurring characters, cuz he thought that was too much like Carol Burnett etc.

slightly more subdued (kenan), Wednesday, 25 May 2005 15:06 (eleven years ago) Permalink

OK I caught it last week. Most of it was totally unfunny but the "Chaotic" parody was bizarre and basically gave me giggles for days. "Oh HELL no. Hell...no."

Allyzay is not appropriate for freedom (allyzay), Wednesday, 25 May 2005 15:11 (eleven years ago) Permalink

I just read the Mr. Mike bio last week. He made a good point about the show having more than enough "wacky wacky" when the producers resisted his attempts to give William S. Burroughs a brief segment on one of the early 80s episodes.

herbert hebert (herbert hebert), Thursday, 26 May 2005 02:15 (eleven years ago) Permalink

sadly, i watch SNL alot. seth whatshisname seems like the obvious replacement for jimmy fallon - he smirks constantly, isn't very funny and is in far too many sketches.

the writers' terror of offending anyone makes most of the sketches heavily dependent on unfunny gimmicks and repetition, much like conan o'brien's show these days.

remy bean, Sunday, 24 February 2008 07:11 (nine years ago) Permalink

the hot air balloon was totally a rip-off of Tim and Eric style bad TV. Tonight wasn't so funny. Cold open was pretty weak and the game show too. Steve Martin and Tina were good in the intro. I also liked Tina's Hillary rant. What's the story on the new girl?

dan selzer, Sunday, 24 February 2008 07:33 (nine years ago) Permalink

i watched snl tonight for the first time in a while!! it was not that good but when is it ever. tina fey was only really good in the monologue.

I couldn't remember seeing new girl in the earlier episodes this season and then noticed half way through the show that maya hadn't shown up at all.

Mike Huckabee -- great timing!

Dimension 5ive, Sunday, 24 February 2008 13:00 (nine years ago) Permalink

xp: huckabee was pretty good. a shame about his beliefs and politics.

the fake ad was funny. the new girl did a hateful rachel ray, so she's ok with me. but overall should've been better with a couple months' vacation. i hear they're only doing eight more episodes for the season.

the hot air balloon was totally a rip-off of Tim and Eric style bad TV.

but kinda funny instead of not funny at all.

Yeah, no, I don't buy it, Perrin. How many previous SNL writers have been suspended for edgy tweets? This has everything to do with Trump.

Considering the direction their flag is flying, kinda starting to think an NBC boycott might be in order.

The recurring Steve Bannon bit is awful--can't see it surviving more than a few episodes. Even Baldwin seemed lost.

Kristen Stewert used to really bug me but I've grown to like her more after she started doing roles that seemed more suited to her laconic talents. She was good in this, I like that she seemed to demand that she wear the same eyeshadow in every skit regardless of who she was playing.

how did the episode hosted by Alec Baldwin end up being the most inconsequential and anodyne show of the season so far? unnecessary reprise of McCarthy as Spicer, a single dumb Trump sketch, and Baldwin didn't play Trump in every sketch like he should've. HMRPH
