I got a fever....
26 November 2004 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

And the only prescription...is more cowbell! This DVD contains some of the funniest moments in SNL history. Walken is...well Walken! He made sketches like "The Continental" and "The Trivial Psychic" memorable that would have faded into oblivion if done by any other host. The "Colonel Angus" sketch still makes me laugh out loud every time I see it and you have to wonder if Walken even got the joke. The best sketch on this DVD has to be the "Blue Oyster Cult- Don't fear the reaper" sketch. Walken and Farrell's performance in this made it an instant classic and produced one of the most well-known lines in SNL history. If you are a fan of Walken then you should definitely check this DVD out.

4/5 cowbells
