    There is a skit I really like I can’t find. There are several versions. The skit includes, I believe, Will Forte, Jason Sedeikis, another cast member and the host. Premise is they are all in a bar and a song comes on that reminds them all of past life experiences that gradually get worse than the last and they break between to sing the chorus of the song together. Amy by Pure Prairie League is one ex. If you happened upon this skit or one of the other versions please let us know what episode it’s in?

    The belushi samurai thing has to be understood in its relationship to Saturday Night Fever.

    Yes, the late 80s and into the 90s were the best years. The 70s were just too many drug jokes. BORING. Although I am a Dan Ackroyd and Bill Murray fan. I have the advantage to have seen all the seasons as they were originally broadcast until around the time Will Ferrell left and then I lost interest. On occasion I will check in and now I think it is just plain inane. But Adam Sandler has never been funny. Some of the things you do not like are running jokes, which work better if you do not just see one example.

    I don't think SNL has dropped in quality at all. I think it's telling that people say snl "got political". Its Republicans who don't like that a leftist show is popular. That's it.

    In regards to the John Belushi - Samurai sketch. If you don’t get it, it’s because you never saw - Saturday Night Fever. The whole sketch is making fun of John Travolta and that film. Which is a horrible film. The stuff about his family life are the only redeeming scenes in the movie, otherwise it’s pretty trash. The sketch does good coverage of the films reoccurring locations, and boils it down pretty well, and the samurai is metaphor for how Travolta was seen as the unicorn in his family. I’ve spent way too much time explaining this. Blame it on the Frosted Donuts I was just smoking in my bong. (Not actual donuts, just the strain name.)

    I agree on the nostalgia thing. So many people believe things are objectively good because they look back fondly on it, even if it was actually bad or the same as it always been. I'm not saying I'm not guilty of this, I used to play Fallout 3 all the fucking time and it's probably up there in my top best games I've ever played, if not the best (it also got me through some very tough times), and I'll admit the heavily rose-tinted glasses cloud my mind sometimes and make me forget how objectively flawed the game is compared to the rest of the series (still not a bad game, it's just flawed compared to the rest). Everybody is guilty of this, and that's usually not a bad thing, but it gets bad when people completely forget how objectively bad or good the thing is and just base an objective rating on nostalgia.

    I’m surprised you didn’t talk about Kristen Wiig. She and Andy Samberg carried the show for me. Theirs are the only skits from that era that I consistently go back to, and with Andy it’s really just the lonely island skits. Kristen was the best in actual sketches. Also the ICP Magnets parody was fuckin hilarious

    Of course snl hasn’t been good in forever. PC culture and liberal agendas have made everything political and only insulting to those who disagree with their agenda. You can get some random fun jokes here and there, but when they try to force in relevant topics while trying to seem woke, it’s soooooo embarrassing.
