SNL

Is it me?

I get that I may not agree it even understand all the humor. I certainly knew Kavenaugh would be a target.


But this isn't a funny show anymore

As always, SNL is hit or miss. They occasionally roll out something that is hilarious. The bit they did a while back that was set in Tampa was fantastic.

SNL hasn't been funny or entertaining in almost two decades.

SNL has been **** since the early 2000’s. When the last good cast (Ferrell era) left.

They had a great run from the 80’s to 2002.

I'm still baffled by this Pete Davidson thing. He's not funny, at all. Now he's a daft prick and is banging Ariana Grande.

Jesus, that crazy FatFuck with the sweet cut in N. Korea can't push the button fast enough.

I thought the Will Ferrell era was still good, but I don't know anyone that watches regularly anymore. The same goes for late night talk shows.

Two rules of life I've learned:

- Whatever Pizza you had in your hometown is always the only "real" pizza.
- Whatever era of SNL was on when you were 12-18 or so was always the last funny era of SNL.

For me that was Mike Myers, Dana Carvey, Phil Hartmann (RIP), Chris Rock, Victoria Jackson, etc, etc, etc.

I think they need a great host nowadays for it to be a great episode. Last episode I watched was prolly a year ago with James Franco and it was DAMN funny.

One rule of Buczone I’ve learned:

- When MJW makes up stupid rules, she’s wrong.


I loved the 80’s era , the early 90’s era, and the late 90’s/early 2000’s Ferrell era. That was a great run.

Don't forget Jim Carry. Fire Marshall Bill is a classic or Wayans as Wanda. Also, The Homeboy Shopping Network.

FMB was comic genius. I'm surprised they never tried a movie.


I think that's the other difference. Lorne Michael's made some really really bad movies





And then hit pay dirt with Wayne's World

I agree SNL has had several good troups. Lately its drug for me, but I heard the Franco episode was good.

Late night has changed, and tuning into a an old SNL, MadTV, In Living Color, etc is fun. It's almost like skit comedy should make a comeback .... almost

There are two problems with SNL- one is new, one isn't.

1. Coming up with original comedy on a weekly basis is hard. Stand-ups take years to perfect one show. Sitcom writers write 12 episodes over a year or whatever. Having something happen on Tuesday, and then making up skits around it for Saturday, is not easy.

2. It's a liberal circle jerk now. They do a bad Trump impression and it gets cheers, not laughs (I just read this somewhere). And then they do Pence. And then they do Giuliani. Repeat. Repeat. Repeat.

1. No argument whatsoever. Writing sketch comedy on a weekly basis has got to be brutal, and because of this, the show quality tends to ebb and flow over the years.

2. It's ALWAYS been a left leaning show. From Chevy Chase doing Gerald Ford to Alec Baldwin doing Trump. But they will pick on Democrats too, Kate Mckinnon's Hillary Clinton is hysterical, and Larry David as Bernie Sanders couldn't have been done better.

Since its LIVE IN NEW YORK, a very liberal city, politics is what's hot now so its hard to ignore.

No way can they take a conservative approach with that live crowd. Booing would not provide a good audio for their comedy sketches. And the liberal media play it over and over. Any free press is appreciated. Bill Clinton took a terrible beating in the mid-90's. Sadly, things are too divided now. So this show, like the late night talk shows are not everyone's cup of tea. Just the way it goes in 2018.
