We used to see the odd one in the UK, and it sucked. The only comparison was the movies Belushi, Ackroyd etc were in, which were soooo much better than the show seemed to be. I assumed it was the cultural divide.

The only good thing I remember is one or maybe two blues brothers songs they did on it.

Watching entire episodes of old SNL, as opposed to carefully picked lists of good sketches, there was still tons of garbage every week. I also think that people are pretty incapable of assessing the suckiness of things they liked when they were kids. I can think of numerous things that I thought were awesome as a kid that would probably inspire an urge to kill in me were I to watch them fresh now. Exhibit A: Howard the Duck.

My suspicion is that most of it has to do with people watching the show when they are 12 and thinking it was awesome back then.

I fully admit that I am biased in this regard, as I started watching SNL in the Eddie Murphy era, and it was long enough ago that I've conveniently forgotten the crappy sketches.

I don't think that anyone is arguing that every sketch they did was uproariously funny. There was surely some garbage. But during certain "golden eras" you could count on a few gems just about every week. And the talent on the show was so good that even the poorly written material was usually entertaining to a degree.

"Call us Aaron Burr from the way we're dropping Hamiltons" classic.

Although I was disappointed in the christmas debbie downer sketch, the one where they went to disneyworld in the Lindsey Lohan episode a few years back was hilarious (as was the Harry Potter sketch). At least they didnt run that Merrill Lynch commercial again. They've run it like 6 episodes in a row before last night.

the taco town commercial is the [censored], though.

the last few episodes have been spot on because they're getting FUNNY PEOPLE TO HOST THE SHOW. Novel concept, right?

Samberg is part of a comedy trio that produced a lot of short movies. They worked with Parnell to produce the 'Narnia' video.

Here's their site. "Nintendo" and "The Bu, episode 8" are pretty funny.
