I'm on a Mac, so streaming was my only option.

I purchase this SNL episode mainly because I very much enjoyed Joseph Gordon-Levitt's opening song and dance number. It's the highlight of the show. And yet after I downloaded it, I noticed it wasn't included. This episode is only 49 minutes instead of the normal 57 minutes. It is missing the first 8 minutes. Why is Amazon selling incomplete episodes of SNL without stating that there are portions missing? If you are expected a full episode for your money, you will be disappointed. You have been warned.

I loved Betty White as Sue Anne Nivens on the Mary Tyler Moore show. Her timing was impeccable on delivering those smiling zingers as the Happy Homemaker on WJM. And her advances on Lou Grant always sent him diving into the booze bottle. She gave her Happy Homemaker a twist in a sketch with a batch of muffins on SNL, which was hilarious, all of her retorts delivered absolutely deadpan. She also still did innuendo with the SNL male cast members like only she can do it. She can still do comedy and what a feat that is to do live comedy at 88 years of age. I watched Kathy Griffin use her last season on her D List show to good effect and now I hear Betty may be approached for Oscar hosting. It was her night all the way.

Gerard Butler's monologue has been cut out of this vid. I purchased it specifically for the monologue (because it was cut out of the vid on Hulu also) and was extremely disappointed that I wasted my $1.99. Otherwise a good episode.

So I have to wonder...what happened to the monologue? That is kind of an important part of an snl episode, and yet here Amazon has EDITED it. ITunes, as well. So...wtf?

I wish I had checked the customer reviews before I made this purchase, but I foolishly assumed that in paying for this episode I would be getting the whole thing. I also bought it solely because I wanted to see Joseph Gordon-Levitt's reenactment of "Make 'Em Laugh." Why this is not included I cannot understand. Very disappointing.

As stated in other reviews, the monologue was cut out and this was not made clear up front. What is an SNL episode without the monologue?

But the biggest frustration was trying to watch the streaming episode - the quality was horrible. I'm on a Mac, so streaming was my only option. I have a 20mbps connection, and watch streaming content from other sites a lot without any problems.

Amazon needs to work on their streaming quality. The stuttering audio connection was hard on my ears and very annoying. There were skips in the audio and the video, and sometimes the audio was lost altogether. I could not find any control allowing me to increase the buffer, so there was nothing to do but try to rewind on the spots where the stuttering was so bad that I could not understand what the actors were saying. Sometimes that helped, sometimes it didn't.

Too bad - it looked like a fun episode. I'm just glad I didn't really have to pay for it because it was covered by a promotional credit from another purchase. Otherwise, I'd be asking for my money back.

PS: I'm not generally this disgruntled - this is my first bad review for Amazon. I love their mail-order and mp3 download services. They just need to work on this new feature so the quality is on a par with their other services.

Alec Baldwin's ability to be comedic continues to amaze. He does sketch after sketch on this episode and they are all hilarious. My favorite was probably as a washed up swim coach who has to give trophies to all the "losers" on his team. But that is closely followed by his do-it=yourself sex videotape, his recounting his past which turns out to be another's past, his white sox and sandals "Dad" slaving over the grill, and his opening monologue. He wears whatever outrageous costume, wig or makeup which is necessary for his role too. The only thing that is a shame is that all those years ago when he was starting out that he didn't immediately go to comedy instead of to drama. He was very good in drama but he has a true comedic gift. Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers gave a surprisingly good musical performance. I am not a fan but I enjoyed their numbers.

Betty White is one of the funniest people I know. Her comedy in this episode is absolutely hysterical, and I love that most of her jokes are sexual. A true comedian, everyone needs to watch this episode. One of the greatest, and I love that many of the old cast members come back just for Betty White.
