So much talent...Chase, Belushi, Aykroyd, Morris, Curtin, Newman, Radner, Brooks, The Muppets!.... Who am I leaving out?

    I really loved Gilda Radner doing Roseanne Roseannadanna. I used to mimic her character when I was little. I stopped watching SNL after all of the old characters left. Thanks for the memories.

    "Mr. Lubner has no spine". Lots
    of funny characters back then.

    I also loved the Eddie Murphy era with Mr. Roger's
    Neighborhood.

    I like the 90s myself era. No one has topped Chris Farley. They use to have a lot of hot women on that show too at one time.

    I watch the reruns constantly. I love all of them prior to the last 2-3 years. Even that cast was really good - Will Ferrell, Cheri Oteri, Molly Shannon, Tracy Morgan, Anna Gast???, etc, etc.

    Recently, I've watched entire shows without cracking a smile. It's rare that there's an occasional good skit. The musical guests - well, it's not even music. And while I appreciate polical satire - it's now a political agenda.

    It's now so bad that Mad TV is a funnier show. I don't see how SNL can survive much longer.

    Yep. It sure ain't the same. The whole show had a better, more humorous, fun, atmosphere in the early days.

    Life, in general, has lost much of its easy going attitude and ability to laugh at society's foibles. Things are more uptight, tense, and commercially political now.

    Chris Kattan (sp?) was a pretty versatile guy. I've always wondered why he left. I always enjoyed his "washed up Las Vegas comedian" skits; those performances did a good job of exploring human emotions such as loneliness and the sense of abandonment in a funny/sad way.

    I also enjoyed the earlier years, but as jayflash said, my own tastes have changed as well as others', and I find that I'm not quite as entertained by their sillier skits as I used to be.

    My favorite segments still revolve around poilitical and topical satire, including Weekend Update.

    Bill Murray was the first "new guy" on SNL. I remember very well when he joined them and did a little tongue-in-cheek monologue about how concerned he was about living up to expectations and how he hoped to be entertaining. I didn't know it then, but it was already vintage Bill Murray. All syrupy sweetness while keeping you guessing if he was laughing at you behind your back. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

    When the original cast left I thought the show was dead. Since then it seems to me it has had its ups and downs and can survive the "laughless" times. Believe me IMHO this is not the first time we've gone through this.

    I agree though about the politicization. That is new. In that they seem to be simply following the trend of society. But that's a subject for another thread. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

    Darrell Hammond is my favorite current cast member. He is SO good at doing Clinton, Gore, Donald Trump, Dick Cheney, Doinald Rumsfeld... the list goes on. My absolute favorite is his Clinton impersonation.

    I still get a MAJOR hoot out of the old skits like Bellushi doing Samauri anything! Or Land Shark. Or Killer Bees.

    I'm just nowhere near as inclined to watch SNL these days. Cheri Oteri (sp?) gives decent Weekend Update though.

    Let's not forget Mr. Bill (Oh nooooo!) and later
    Toonsis the driving cat. Fine examples of humor by
    repetition.

    Cheesebuggah! Cheesebuggah!

    I also miss Billy Crystal and Martin Short; Fernando, Ed Grimley and the whiney "I hate when that happens" characters.

    I'm 45.

    I didn't always get to watch SNL in the early days. A lot of what I know is from re-runs, but not lately!

    I have good memories of the good people.

    Let's not forget the musical guests in te early years.

    Elvis Costello, Frank Zappa, and my favorite...

    ___________ and The Pips! No Gladys Knight, just The Pips doing the back up vocals and the dance moves. Very cool and very funny,
