In the past few weeks, NBC has been re-running episodes from the “classic” period - 1975-79 and you know, they suck! SNL has always followed the same pattern: the good sketches were great and the bad sketches suck so hard they left pucker marks on my TV screen. Take last week’s for example: the host was Bea Arthur (ooooohhhh, Maude) and the musical guest was The Roches (three annoying sisters who sing annoying songs). NONE of the sketches worked (granted, Dan and John were not on this season). I guess your memory tends to gloos over the bad in favor of the good.
BTW, anyone remember such sketches as “X-Police” in which Dan and John played cops who had lost their jobs, but continued to investigate crimes?
