I might have missed this if they've shown it before, but if this was new, it was *LONG* overdue.

The 5 Times Club (w/a pre-fame Conan O'Brien appearance!!)
Jew, Not a Jew
Big Outtakes
Wayne's (World w/Aerosmith)
Socially Inept Guys
Mr. Short-Term Memory
Sabra Price Is Right (w/Robert Smigel doing an early vesion of Triumph's accent!!)
Observational Comics (w/ a rare Damon Wayans appearance)

Classics, and a few new surprises to boot.

The biggest omission in my opinion was the White Gut rap with Jim Belushi, but the SNL braintrust seems to ignore that brilliant season

If I'm not mistaken, Belushi's run was from 83-85, when Lorne Michaels had absolutely nothing to do with the show (from 80 to 85, I think, he wasn't with the show). I rarely, if ever, see those episodes rerun on E!, and they weren't ever rerun on Comedy Central, either. I'm not sure Lorne has the rights to them, and if he does, maybe he just wants to forget about them. The only exception that I've seen is the "Best of Eddie Murphy" DVDs and special, and I think that's just because you can't ignore Eddie Murphy.

I love watching the old episodes with Smigel, if only because you know that 9 times out of 10, he's doing the Triumph voice. He also did the early Triumph accent in the "Hub's Gyro's" skit (skits?) that took place in the Greek restaurant (you like-a da juice?).

Yeah, that was a brand new one...they just started doing the Best-Of hosts with Walken earlier this year.

I was disappointed there was no "Brocktoon"/Mr. Belvedere Fan Club skit, one of the most bizarre skits that my friends and I love.

However, they are run a few hours later on your local NBC channel. The 1984 George Carlin episode was on this week.

Damn...I had forgotten how funny "Sabra Price is Right" was. Dig that crazy Canadian mullet on Mike Myers.

They did a Steve Martin one very early in the "Best Of" run.



"Four more years of American soldiers being used as cannon fodder. Four more years of scientific decisions being made by people who believe in a ghost in the clouds. Four more years of debt that our children and grandchildren will have to pay off. Four more years of racists and lunatics for judicial appointments. Four more years of looting the treasury and squandering it on corporate cronies. Four more years of making enemies faster than we can kill them. Four more years of fear and darkness and racism and hatred and stupidity and guns and bad country music.

I look at the big map and all of the red in flyover country and I feel like I've been locked in a room with the slow learners. We have become the country that pulls a dry cleaning bag over its head to play astronaut."
