A nice addition to the 1991 special
planktonrules from Bradenton, Florida
16 June 2007
In 1991 there was a Saturday Night Live special featuring some of the
best commercial parodies the show has made over the years. It was
exceptionally enjoyable and I recommend it strongly. In 2005, a new
special was created, though it tended to focus a lot more on the newer
ads made by the less funny new cast (hey, I call it like I see it).
Despite the show taking a nosedive qualitatively over the years, the
new content is generally exceptional--though the commercials
occasionally were a bit too graphic for some audiences and they tended
to be a bit disgusting at times (such as talking about menstruation).
Also, I have no idea why the producers insisted on including a rather
annoying narration and new content featuring Will Farrell instead of
just giving us a few more parodies. His intermittent bits just aren't
funny and tend to disrupt the flow of the show. My advice is just try
to look beyond this and ignore or fast-forward through these segments
so you can see the great and super-funny segments.
FYI--On the DVD in the "Extras" category are about eight more
