A Wonderful Tribute for a Wonderful Show!
22 March 2000 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I was in awe when I watched the Saturday Night Live 25th Anniversary. As a die-hard fan of the show since 1989 (I wish to note that I'm 14) it was so nice to see all the cast members that I haven't seen in a while! It seemed like everybody who was involved with the show put their all into this one. It was absolutly wonderful. A must see if you ask me!
