There's commentary on both episodes but O'Hara and Short together get a little annoying at times.
It's great to relive a time when Andrae Crouch was the biggest thing in gospel music and the video revolution was in it's early stages (Moranis as Gerry Todd). And speaking of Crouch, how many shows today would showcase a full blown gospel number like "Soon And Very Soon" with a banner on the wall behind the singers stating "He is thy Saviour"? And do it purely for the sake of good entertainment?
A great DVD that any SCTV fan will want to watch year after year.
forced to do his man on the street show "Street Beef" on Christmas eve. With the whole town closed for the holidays, Johnny is stuck wandering the empty snow filled streets looking for anyone to interview.To make it worse for himself Johnny is horribly drunk. But at the last hour Johnny finds there is a Santa Claus.(Candy really did film this at 4am in the freezing snow.)
The next Episode is from season 5 one year later. Martin Short joined the cast by then and Catherine O'Hara was guest starring. Episode #111 is a continuation of the Johnny LaRue story and a great Ed Grimly Christmas movie of the "The Fella who couldn't wait till Christmas." Martin Short is at his best with this character. But the real stand out segment is Count Floyd's Scary Little Christmas special and the dual televised live show of Bobby Bitman from New Jersey & Jackie Rogers Jr. from Las Vegas. This episode completes the Johnny La Rue story and probally the last of the SCTV box sets.
The SCTV box sets have come out not exactly in order. Box set one started at episode #79, the next two box sets continue up to the
4th season, then there is the 4th box set of the best of the early years. But there is no full 1st & 2nd seasons and there is no 5th season box sets.Read more ›
Particular classic bits include Martin Short's "The Fella Who Couldn't Wait For Christmas", a sketch featuring much of the regular cast (Short, Joe Flaherty, Andrea Martin, Catherine O'Hara, Eugene Levy, and the late great John Candy) called "Pre-Teen World" (truly the most terrible - and therefore hilarious - rendition of "Carol Of The Bells" I've ever seen), and my personal favourite: "Dusty Towne's Sexy Holiday Special". Catherine O'Hara's delivery of her very off-colour version of "The Night Before Christmas" never gets old, and the support she gets from her "guests" (Andrea Martin in a side-splitting turn as a Solid Gold dancer, John Candy as "Divine", a drag queen who rightly claims to be Dusty's "biggest" fan, and a background cameo by Rick Moranis as one of Dusty's musicians) all add to the timelessness of the laughs. It's not all limited to Christmas humour, either - Andrea Martin and Catherine O'Hara also perform an amusing faux talk show sketch centred around Hanukkah. And, naturally, we get to stop in for a Christmas visit with Bob and Doug "Take Off, Eh?" McKenzie (Dave Thomas and Rick Moranis).Read more ›
