  • These videos are so manufactured that they kept the subtext for each clip even though they're all of the same show. This is Saturday Night Live, next is Saturday Night Live, then it's Saturday Night Live.

  • While SNL has had some serious Ups and Downs in quality over a few years due to "Producer Conflicts", it has been and will continue to be one of, if not my favorite Of All Time Shows!! Even when most of the comedians were pretty bad, and the writing wasn't much better, there always seemed to be some aspect/skit of the show that saved it for that night. Whether it be Mess ups/Breaking Character like the one's in this video or skits like (The Always will be Classic) Weekend Update!! Even the worst choice of hosts for Weekend Update could get this skit to work, and if/when they messed it up, it still brought laughs. Maybe because I'm a Chef, but one of my favorite Old School Skits, was when Dan Aykroyd played Julia Childs. While preparing a chicken to cook, Julia Childs (Aykroyd) cut herself and what started out looking like a small cut with little blood, soon grew to Epic proportions with blood heavily squirting all over Aykroyd and the set itself!! LMAO!! Childs states while bleeding profusely, "I remember when I was a little girl" (trailing off while passing out from blood loss). Gotta love the REALLY Old School Stuff, just wish they would have shown some in this video, but Old School to me is the Mid-70's to the Mid-80"s, so there's that. LOL ;)

  • You know what always makes a series of clips ten times funnier? Editing it down and including a narrator to explain what you are not actually able to see. Describing how something is so hilarious...oh wait, no. That doesn't improve anything at all. WatchMojo? More like WatchEditedClipsTurnedIntoAbsoluteCrap.

  • it's fascinating, isn't it... how watchmojo can take some of the funniest sketches from SNL and suck all the joy out of them just by adding a narration that seems like it's talking to nearly brain dead people who for some reason have to be very gently introduced to the concept of "funny" without risking to make them actually laugh. also, someone explain to her what she's talking about? because I don't think she gets why things are funny either... I seriously don't know if I hate this or if I love it, just because it's pretty much the weirdest and most pointless thing. who is this for? this will keep me up at night...

  • On the Close Encounters sketch people highlight how funny Kate is, and rightly so, but Cecily Strong is the unsung hero there. She kept it straight on with her composure, working Goslings break into the sketch believably and at one point even feeds him a line he dropped to get him back into the scene. Really professional considering most on this list has the whole cast break and the narrative is lost.

After the laughter subsided, Caesar ad libbed: "I came here right from the costume party!"
