Nicknamed the "Not Ready For Primetime Players", the original cast of
'Saturday Night Live' ignited a comedy revolution with their mix of irreverent
characters and satirical impressions of political figures and pop culture icons.
From the premiere of this groundbreaking sketch comedy show on October 1, 1975, live from historical Studio 8H in New York City's Rockefeller Center, Dan Aykroyd, John Belushi, Jane Curtin, Chevy Chase, Garrett Morris, Laraine Newman and Gilda Radner launched themselves into instant stardom and were often referred to as "The Beatles of Comedy."

I used to watch The Best of Saturday Night, which was hilarious, and the very best of the sketches done by this same crew. I wanted to share the experience with my bf, who hadn't seen any of those skits with Chevy Chase or Belushi or Ackroyd, but this collection is just so disappointing. There are some gems, but they are much too far and few between. There's a lot of repeat skits, horrible musical guests, some sadly lame sketches with Jim Hensen's Muppets, jokes that go on too long, bad delivery by special guest stars, and characters that didn't come into their own until much later. The first 2 shows left him so bored, I couldn't get him to watch any of the others, even when I pre-viewed them to find the best ones. This set is for die-hard fans and theatre students only.
