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 (11 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 (10 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 (10 years ago) Permalink

wow did o'donoghue say that about myers really?

j blount (papa la bas), Wednesday, 25 May 2005 14:55 (10 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 (10 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."

Allyzay is not appropriate for freedom (allyzay), Wednesday, 25 May 2005 15:11 (10 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 (10 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 (7 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 (7 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 rally liked adam driver in this ep! he went for it i thought the aladdin skwtch started a little lame but all of the weird twists at the end made up for it. undercover boss, golden globes, america's funniest cats, porn doctor all made me laugh.

nerd shit (Will M.), Monday, 18 January 2016 14:41 (3 weeks ago) Permalink

I thought the first half was a little week and didn't think undercover boss really brought the laughs but the episode got better as it went on. Funniest Cats was great on many levels. Golden Globes was probably the best. Bummed there was no Girls spoof though, as predictable as that would've been.

dan selzer, Monday, 18 January 2016 16:45 (3 weeks ago) Permalink

Van Der Beek's masterpiece (rip van wanko), Monday, 18 January 2016 17:19 (3 weeks ago) Permalink

Saw the Porn Doctor and French Cats skit. Driver was good in both, but both basically ended in lame deus ex cast member fashion. Hey, the skit is over now!

the oscars diversity skit would have been hilarious had they not beat you over the head with the point at the very end of the sketch. the fake movie clips were very funny.

knew the oscar sketch was abt diversity approx .4 seconds into it

johnny crunch, Sunday, 24 January 2016 23:05 (2 weeks ago) Permalink

well it built up really well but then the end is the presenter going "the winner is... all the white guys!" and it's like "right. yeah. we got it. thank you."

J0rdan S., Sunday, 24 January 2016 23:06 (2 weeks ago) Permalink

yeah a lot of their sketches suffer from trying to put a bow on it at the end. the one w/ the two guys who didn't understand parties ended pretty badly with the quick jump forward to them actually showing up at the house.

apple bottom steen, HOOS with the fur (some dude), Sunday, 24 January 2016 23:36 (2 weeks ago) Permalink

you know, the shitty endsings of sketches don't really bother me that much? it doesn't really ruin a fun sketch before the end. it just makes it clear the sketch & laughs are over. like, the party guys are funny, even if the last line isn't. ditto "knowing" what the sketch is about re: oscar diversity, the joke isn't "getting" it? the increasingly pointless white roles (and the increasingly angry co-star glares) are what made it funny!

why do i always feel the need to defend this show :/

Will v. Maim (Will M.), Monday, 25 January 2016 05:09 (2 weeks ago) Permalink

The Oscars thing seemed like they couldn't hold back so the second fake movie clip gives the joke away as obviously as possible. A little more buildup would've worked better.

i like kenan's old man bit on weekend update.

I love that bit. "It's like the asbestos removal men said, 'Good God, there's someone alive in here!'"
