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 (10 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 (9 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 (9 years ago) Permalink

wow did o'donoghue say that about myers really?

j blount (papa la bas), Wednesday, 25 May 2005 14:55 (9 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 (9 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 (9 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 (9 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 (6 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 (6 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.

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.

I'd be surprised if he comes back, and I thought that even before the TMZ report yesterday. It just seems like it's his time to move on (I still love him, tho).

Johnny Fever, Tuesday, 23 September 2014 21:15 (1 week ago) Permalink

I'll be sad if he goes, for sure. 2016 season will feature a "reunion" Scared Straight sketch with returning Hader, Samberg & Thompson still trying to make each other break.

For someone who'd been on the show for 40 years, you'd think they'd give Pardo more of a tribute than a title card after Update.

most of the other stuff was pretty eh but the marvel taped sketch was really funny. also thought the "Weird" Kyle Mooney Sketch from was actually kinda great.

well on top of that, Seth is out as head writer and the jokes mostly blow

bozack horseman (Whiney G. Weingarten), Monday, 29 September 2014 03:30 (2 days ago) Permalink

I dunno, if Seth is that good, Late Night wouldn't be such a monumental snoozefest.

Montgomery Burns' Jazz (Tarfumes The Escape Goat), Monday, 29 September 2014 03:33 (2 days ago) Permalink

btw Darrell Hammond is not as good an announcer as I somehow imagined he might be. Sounded like the guy reading small print at the end of an investment commercial.

Johnny Fever, Monday, 29 September 2014 03:40 (2 days ago) Permalink

Yeah Hammond sounded like he was just reading it through in preparation. Weird.

I dunno, if Seth is that good, Late Night wouldn't be such a monumental snoozefest.

It has its moments, but unless it really improves in quality I'd be perfectly happy if they fired him and sent him back to write at SNL. Hell, anchor even, I didn't think he was that bad.

sink floyd (GOTT PUNCH II HAWKWINDZ), Monday, 29 September 2014 03:48 (2 days ago) Permalink

Yeah, I really had no problems with Seth on Update (but maybe some as head writer). As far as I can tell, the only thing Colin Jost was put on earth to do is help Bobby Moynihan create "Drunk Uncle".

Johnny Fever, Monday, 29 September 2014 03:58 (2 days ago) Permalink

Mooney's Tim and Eric skit was only good part

GhostTunes on my Pono (Sufjan Grafton), Monday, 29 September 2014 04:04 (2 days ago) Permalink

Hammond surprisingly flat and personality-less as an announcer. Maybe it was just opening day jitters. Che seemed pretty nervous, and even Aidy flubbed some lines in the cold open.

I didn't dislike the Leslie Jones and Pete Davidson bits, but it felt awkward to me that they were there as "weekend update characters" when it really felt like they were doing their stand up act.

Michael F Gill, Tuesday, 30 September 2014 23:43 (Yesterday) Permalink

were they? i don't recall this, although i'll admit that i tune out when jost is speaking.

Leslie Jones did a bit on Update last season too, and it was the highlight of that episode as well iirc.
