Great to see the complete season 5. I wish they did more seasons on DVD or Blu-Ray for the latest seasons.
But I'm happy that the first 5 seasons are available.
I had forgotten how talented these cast members, as well as the guest host, really were. This was a real live performance that was well written and performed. Read morePublished 16 days ago by Gary G.
i like SNL from the start until 97 after Chris Farley and the rest left the show. I wanted the rest of the dvd from 1979+97 the later ones suck.Published 19 days ago by Leigh

The old SNL can not compare with the new ones. The old one make me laugh so much and I hardly laugh at the current ones. Sorry buy the old ones! Thank you!Published 1 month ago by Kerry Skieff
