    • I don't get it... Why are these sketches considered "dark" or "disturbing"... When Comedy is purely Subjective and it's an Obvious Parody and Reflection of the society and the world at large? It's obviously a Parody/Satire and Comedy when YOU as the Viewer are IN on the joke?

  • Why do you have to have negative opinions of a lot the sketches? Just because they’re dark, doesn’t mean they’re bad. Some of them are hilarious (loved the family feud one). Seems like you were distancing yourselves from the backlash about the subject matter of some of the skits.

  • Thumbs Down, MOJO!! :( I don't get it... Why are these sketches considered "dark" "controversial" or "disturbing"... When Comedy is purely Subjective and it's an Obvious Parody and Reflection of the society and the world at large? It's obviously a Parody/Satire and Comedy when YOU as the Viewer are IN on the joke? Are you insinuating that Americans aren't smart enough to decide or get the joke? And that you HAVE to Decide what the tone is of the sketch?

  • If this was an HONEST countdown of 10 darkest SNL sketches ever, most of them would be TV funhouse sketches. Like the Wonderman one especially, where Wonderman kills the man to steal his wife. I honestly was expecting you to put the "most evil invention" sketch at #1. It IS #1 at one thing - it is the BEST SNL sketch ever, I'm not sure I'd call it the darkest though. I think you may want to revisit the OLD SNL sketches, from the 70s and 80s though, to make a fair list. Like there was one from that era, a "jeopardy in the future" sketch, where a bunch of drastic social changes had taken place and they got questions that had answers that revealed that. Like "this practice was legalized in 2010 to alleviate the overpopulation crisis" and the answer given was "what is babykilling", I think Steve Martin was in it, but I can't find it on youtube. Honestly I don't see why anyone has a problem with the evilest invention one, it highlights how silly comic book villains are compared to ACTUAL evil found in the real world, that seems to be the whole point, and it's a good point.

Can we please talk about the time snl in the 80s did a episode long segment(fake news headlines kept popping up during the episode) that culminated in the entire cast and crew getting fake slaughtered by giant lobsters? NO ONE talks about it but that shit was insane. Saw it on an snl dvd and was very caught off guard. My dad grew up in the 80s but he was shocked, too. Talk about dark.
