Michael Wren Gucciardo,
Ahhh... Saturday Night Live. This is a pretty good documentary about
the heyday of SNL (the first five years 1975-1980) that was originally
made for broadcast by NBC.
It includes many great interviews with the cast and writers (including
Chevy Chase, Dan Akroyd, Laraine Newman, Garrett Morris and others),
mixed with lots of quick flashes of classic sketches and musical
guests. The interviews are fairly candid and I learned a few things
about the cast that I didn't know.
Watching this special made me yearn for the days when SNL was edgy and
funny. Viewing the show now most of the time is a chore. Do yourself a
favor and pick up this DVD. It's money well spent for fans of classic
Saturday Night Live.
