I recognize the importance and the skills of the original cast, but to be honest, only Bill Murray makes me laugh, now, when I watch it. I think they were amazing, and very brave/intrepid, and obviously funny.....but right now, it feels dated to me. Just to me. I know this is subjective and not a widely agreed with opinion.

Phil Hartman was amazing, be it on SNL, Simpsons, etc. That was such a sad thing, his death.

That line fucking kills me every time.

Bill Murray and Jane Curtin were alright together, never as good as Dan Aykroyd was though.
At work, daily, for like a year, one of us would say "I wouldn't have done this.....this looks like you took a crap or a dump in the printer". That skit, good lord.

I completely agree with that, about being dated, and not as funny as it once was. The one thing I notice about that era when watching reruns now is that they were a hell of a lot edgier in what they covered comedically back then than they have been in any other era.

I've never seen that Pierce Brosnan sketch, and I am much sadder for it.

That is true....there was no political correctness then. I have mixed feelings about that, actually. On the one hand, it freed them up to really go for the kill at times, but on the other hand, it could be really insulting. Eh, fine line, I guess.

Someone find Cori a link or whatnot to that Brosnan sketch. It has to be out there somewhere.

I love funnyordie.com

It's great, but I still love Harry Carey more.

HEY!

I know exactly what you mean, and I suppose that can only come from people from our age group, knowing how things used to be back then. Sometimes I cringe at the shit they did, but the way I view it is, comedy was probably the one arena where they could tackle the issues that they did, in order to display prejudices and mindsets, and hold them out there to be mocked, till it was safe to view them in other contexts.

Also, see - All In The Family.

Am I even making sense? I don't think so.

HEY!
I like how it starts off like a normal sketch, then takes a clear and funnier turn later on.

Of course you're making sense. All in the Family is a great example, too.

Hey, I watched Eddie Murphy Delirious a few weeks ago and was blown away at some of the material. I had forgotten how many gay jokes were in there. And everyone ate it up. I wonder how that would go over today. Not that Eddie was holding a mirror up, and I'm not comparing his act to All in the Family, but still.

I have no idea how I missed that because I swear I saw that episode. I definitely have never seen that before, but it was great. Thanks!

That and Raw could be called Eddie Murphy Thoroughly Hates Gay People... and Bill Cosby.

Why can I never find any Church Chat skits anywhere online? That's still my favorite SNL sketch ever.

Isn't NBC pretty vigilant about taking down any SNL clips from YouTube?
