I said it for The Best of John Belushi and I'll say it again here. Warners needs to release the DVD! Dan Aykroyd, for my money, was funnier than Belushi on SNL (and even in some movies--The Blues Brothers and Neighbors--where he played deadpan and loon, respectively, against Belushi). His impersonations were dead-on (the only thing missing from this compilation is his Tom Snyder impression). Like The Best of John Belushi, I could do without some skits (I never cared much for the Coneheads, but I realize I'm in the minority). Also the "Wild and Crazy Guys" skit has lost some impact, maybe due to its legend and Steve Martin's career. But then you've got his take on Julia Child (the "goriest" skit in SNL history, maybe?), his "Deca-Bet" skit, Fred Garvin--Male Prostitute (the forerunner to Deuce Bigalow, and ten times funnier), E Buzz Miller's Wild Kingdom--the list goes on. Timeless humor. And worthy of a DVD. I will say this until I'm blue in the face.
