Let’s get one thing straight. Saturday Night Live has never been funny. At least not consistently. Chevy Chase based his comedy on falling down, John Belushi mainly yelled a lot, likely in an attempt to wake his cardiovascular system from a heroin nod, and Chris Farley was just John Belushi with an impending coronary. But thanks to nostalgia, biannual New York Times articles on the show’s fading social relevance, and brain damage caused by bong resin-clogged synapses, people seem to remember the show being hysterical 5, 10, 15 years ago. Don’t believe me? Watch Wayne’s World again. We did here at Sound on Sight, for our Saturday Night Live film special, along with this week’s much-hyped but little seen MacGruber, and forgotten Tim Meadows vehicle The Ladies Man.
