Major Spoilers Question Of The Day: Live From New York Edition


One of the things I enjoy about my current work schedule is having my Saturdays off for family time, wrapping things up with some old-school comic book Retro Review goodness and Saturday Night Live.  Cynics will tell you that the show isn’t funny anymore, but as we approach the 40th anniversary, I still find a lot of entertainment in the last remnants of live television broadcasting.  Having been a regular viewer since the days of Gilbert Gottfried and Denny Dillon (not a season you ever want to seek out, by the way), I still remember Gumby, Dennis Miller, Wayne’s world, even that halcyon time when every successful sketch was turned into a movie, regardless of whether it made any sense.  These days, my favorite sketch is probably the “former porn starlets trying to get free stuff” series, which has the advantage of not being beaten entirely into the ground yet, and being really pretty funny, which leads us into today’s query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) still misses the days when Smigel would do ‘Saturday TV Funhouse’, some of the best superhero parodies of all time, asking: What’s YOUR favorite Saturday Night Live bit, past or present?
