    Yes to all of this! Especially to the part about rooting for your favourite cast members and being proud of them when they move on and become successful. I used to watch Kate McKinnon on The Big Gay Sketch Show and thought man she should be on SNL because she's going to be a star. Now she is not only one of the best cast members in SNL history, she's made several major successful movies. And I love that for her 😊

    I was sort of remembering watching some SNL in the 80s, because there wasn't much else on. But couldn't remember much of anything about it. But I saw the change bank and immediately said out loud, "We won't give you 2,000 nickels." So that's a piece of writing that stuck for over thirty years.

    The issue that Norm Macdonald found with the modern snl impersonations skits of trump and stuff is that they don’t even like who they are portraying so they can’t accurately portray and make funny who they are impersonating.

Then proceeds talking shit about SNL which had actually gotten better and better, alot of what came out in the past 5 years was better than the first few years. But some of the best did come from the first years, including episodes with people like George Carlin.

    It’s definitely really bad now, maybe not the worst ever but it would make sense for it to be soo bad. Comedy is scrutinized and comedians aren’t given the freedom to try jokes that might offend someone, All comics are afraid of getting canceled, SNL recruits cast members not because they’re funny but because they fill a gender or race role, it’s bad, and the pandemic isn’t helping

    so....pretty much SNL has ALWAYS been a comedy troupe's youtube channel, but like 30yrs before youtube was a thing, and every time a different social media platform usurps public attention, comments on new videos are always "youtube hasn't been funny since i stopped watching it" and it's mostly cuz the 1 dude behind the scenes running the channel is too old and doesn't care enough to try and adapt to anything more relevant, but on occasion when they come out with something more relevant, it's ALWAYS cringey pandering.
