  • ugh....the channel is torture. they spend more time talking over the clips than just letting us watch them. see the scene and shut up...we don't need narration.

  • sorry to rain on this but the commentary is unbearable. Had to bail after the cats. Minimize the editorial and just let the material speak for itself. We're not all brain dead needing explanation of comedy. UGH!

  • I didn't even recognize Adam Driver! Good make up. "Cowbell" I saw "live" on TV on SNL and I was laughing through it. I could see Christopher Walken laughing behind the glass. If I see Christopher Walken on the street, I won't say "More cowbells!" to him. I'll quote a line from"Disney's The Jungle Book" instead. " Do you mean you CAN'T or you WON'T?!"

  • I don't know if it's breaking character but there was snl skit where a family was baby birding food into each others mouths. I believe the cameraman was supposed to pan away when it was the guests turn but it stayed on and he was giving the camera a death stare the entire time.(it was a Thanksgiving episode)

  • I had to quit watching SNL when the cue cards became more important than everything else. Give me Belushi with a katana any day. I hate watching people read. I wrote this before watching the whole thing. I love that Belushi was included. Sadly, what made that episode classic was not shown. As the show progressed, more and more of the actors started wearing bandages.
