I was watching this Saturday Night Live special last night, and got to thinking how many great skits they did overt the years. Sure, SNL has really not produced anything funny in a while but some times they come out with a real gem.

It was also sad to remember the loss of some great comedic geniuses. (Farley, Hartman, Belushi).

Some of my favoiurites:
Farley auditioning for a Chip N Dales dancer.
The sketch with Alec Baldwin as the greatest actor who cannot pronounce certain words properly (esophagus pronounced eso *** us)
The many weekend updates. Especially with Dennis Miller.
And of course the Cowbell sketch.

Doug beat me to the punch. Having grown up with the original late-night ads like this when TV was live, this was a great skit ............... except for the bass. Being a New Yorker, who never fished, I nearly died when Dan A. popped one into the blender. A Great Skit.

A heretic here:

* Martin Short and Harry Shearer as the two pathetic guys doing a synchronized swimming routine to the theme from "Raiders of the Lost Ark."
* For sheer squirminess: Harvey Keitel being "assisted" on the toilet by Kevin Nealon.
* The Conitnental, as pointed out by The Doug.
* Commercials: Robot Insurance with Sam Waterston; "Big Red" (He's big, big, big and he's red, red, red...."

The Doug, that's one of my favourites! Cheezeborger! :D

Sadly, watching SNL last night (I caught the Borat opening sketch and decided to give SNL one more chance), my thought was: How is this program still on the air? I haven't seen a consistently good show since Robin Williams in 1988 - did the "Classically Trained Shakespearean Porn Star" bit.

SNL is little more than filler on a Saturday night. Hasn't been truly funny in a looooooooooong time. :(

That reminds me of Murray as Hercules.

MF: Men's Synchronised swimming, how could I forget!

I saw the Best of 06/07 and it is quite sad that they could not even string together one good episode from many others (13-26?).

Beej: Murray's dubbed Hercules was extremely funny as well. "I shall undertake a rigorous exercise regimen and come back to destroy you!"

I got a fever ...

I'm surprised that no one has yet mentioned this Walken/Ferrell skit. (Hmmm, maybe trying to avoid it, pardon me for my lack of discretion. ;) )

"Wearing my gold-plated diapers ..." :D



(Edit: D'uuuuh! Of course MaxPower mentioned it right off the bat. That's what I get for skimming, instead of reading. :eek: )
