This DVD just begins to fill in many of the gaps that the VHS left out.
If you love Gilda --this DVD is a must--but SNL better have a Volume 2 ready to go soon!--There are many LOVED sketches and performances missing!!!!!!!!
Well, to be honest, I was a little disappointed in this dvd. It's no secret that Gilda did some of the most hilarious sketches in "SNL" history, most of the time portraying her own original characters. However, I felt this dvd doesn't do her justice. It is apparent that the compilers aimed this dvd at younger "SNL" fans as a sampler of some of Gilda's best work, so a newer generation might embrace her legacy. Great idea, but I honestly think that they should have also kept the hardcore fans who've longed for her best stuff in mind as well when this dvd was made.
To get diehards to buy it, the compilers put most of Gilda's most famous popular recurring characters on the dvd, such as Emily Litella, Roseanne Rosanndanna, Baba Wawa and Lisa Loopner. However, for the most part, I wouldn't say they picked the best editions of these sketches for the dvd. They are all indeed very funny, but I can't help but feeling that they're better appearances of these characters. Other sketches, such as "Slumber Party" and "Candy Slice", do indeed have many amusing moments, but sooner or later the viewer loses interest.Read more ›
There are some skits involving "Emily Litella" and "Rosanne Rosannadanna" that are different. The performance of "Gimme Mick" by "Candie Slice" is much better on the older VHS release, however the DVD version shows more of her character and why she is the way she is and it's quite funny. Overall, I am very pleased with the DVD and am happy it is released. The only thing missing was the classic "Harley's Bristol Cream" commercial.
Now as soon as they come out with the Best of Cheri Oteri, I will be even happier.
