Back When Saturday Night Live Was Funny?

For those who love to repeat that tired ‘back when Saturday Night Live was funny” or similar statements, hear me out…

Peacock streaming has every episode of every season of SNL available for viewing. With that said, I’d advise you to watch the episodes from the original NSRFPTPs.

Yes, there were some memorable, side-splitting skits during that period. Heck, there were several that went on to be iconic in popular culture.

However, for every funny skit those shows had, you had two to three that were either bizarre, esoteric, or just plain not funny.

There were plenty of great episodes of SNL back then, but there were also some stinkers in the mix as well.

Before any of you make the claim that today’s SNL is too political, please note that Presidents Nixon, Ford, and Carter were lampooned on a semi-regular basis.

For those who claim to not have watched the show in years, how do you know it’s not funny if you’re not watching it?

That is called the illusory truth effect. That is the tendency to believe false information to be correct after repeated exposure.

Again, I suggest any of you to watch the classic SNL show and see it for yourselves.

I’m quite aware that this was a super long post, but I’ve been wanting to get this off of my chest for the longest time.

Thank you.
