Great for fans!
6 February 2016 | by (Virginia) – See all my reviews

One of the great advantages of being on as long as "Saturday Night Live" has is that it's pretty easy for SNL producers to put together 'best of' and themed specials without much effort. Over the past few years, these compilation specials have become increasingly common, although the quality of these compilations often varies. Out of all of the themed specials, SNL Sports Spectacular is among the best ones. It's made up of mostly great football sketches, though there also a few sketches about basketball, baseball, and other sports thrown into the mix.

SNL Sports Spectacular is a bit longer than it needed to be with Seth Myers' hosting padding out the running time. That said, there are very few sketches that are outright flops with the exception of the "Outside the Lines" sketch with Melissa McCarthy which just goes on far too long. However, for the most part, this contains some of the best sports-related sketches the show has ever aired, including Locker Room with Jason Sudekis as Jesus, the Peyton Manning United Way sketch, and Chris Farley doing Olympic Figure skating with Nancy Kerrigan (one of the more underrated Chris Farley sketches). Some of the other highlights are sketches that are only vaguely related to sports but are great to see here like Charles Barkley's MacGruber clips and the Schmitts Gay Beer commercial. Even though the the majority of the material contained here is from the past ten seasons or so, there is just enough from the 1990s and earlier to keep fans from any decade of the show happy. The only strange and extremely disappointing absence is that there are no clips of Tim Meadows as O.J. Simpson, something that seems like it would be mandatory in an SNL compilation with sports in the title.

SNL Sports Spectacular is unlikely to be released on DVD, as there aren't many new SNL DVDs put out anymore, which is a shame. This is the best SNL special to be produced in quite some time, and definitely worth watching for fans of the show. Even people who aren't sports fans will probably find a lot to laugh at here. Recommended. 8/10
