Join us we explore old (and sometimes new) episodes of SNL, analyzing the show and the bizarre pop culture ephemera that surrounded it.




Episode 20: Jim Carrey/Soundgarden (May 18, 1996)

It's the big finale for season 21 with Jim Carrey and Soundgarden! This one is a well-remembered classic that saw many repeats on Comedy Central back in the day but does it hold up all these years later? Mostly, yes. Tangents include more talk about the mid-90's Batman films than you ever wanted.


Episode 19: Christine Baranski/The Cure (May 11, 1996)

It's bizarre times with Christine Baranski and The Cure! Experience the last sputtering moments of unique season 21 favorites and a barrage of other weirdness! Tangents are kept to a minimum because we respect your time.


Off Week 5: S43 Catch Up (Barkley, Brown, Hader, Boseman, Mulaney), Doctor Detroit and other nonsense!)

It's another boozy Off Week as we again catch up on the season 43 episodes we’ve missed from the last few months! We also ramble about where to take the show next season, the corrupting force of Migos, further appreciation of Luke Null and more!


Episode 18: Teri Hatcher/Dave Matthews Band (April 20, 1996)

This week Lois Lane herself, Teri Hatcher, joins musical guest Dave Matthews Band for a pretty fun little episode. Tangents include theories on the downfall of Dave Matthews and more!


Episode 17: Steve Forbes/Rage Against The Machine (April 13, 1996)

This week, Presidential also-ran Steve Forbes and fun loving provocateurs Rage Against The Machine deliver one of the more strangely memorable episodes of season 21. Tangents include rioting with Rage, the joys of solid roofing work and more!


Episode 16: Phil Hartman/Gin Blossoms (March 23, 1996)

We return from our brief hiatus with a trip down memory lane with SNL legend, Phil Hartman. We get some old favorites like Charlton Heston, Sinatra and Frankenstein amidst the debut of some new favorites (?) like the Roxbury Guys and acting workshop teacher Bobby Coultsman. Tangents include listener response about Chris Kattan, Phil's effect on our lives and more!


Off Week 3 (Season 43 Nov/Dec Catch Up, Questions From The Audience And More!)

This week, we kick back before the holidays with another free flowing Off Week! We answer some questions from the audience and run down some the highlights/lowlights from the November and December episodes of season 43 before branching off into some other things. Care to hear what we think about Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Return, Stranger Things season 2 and the documentary Jim and Andy? I certainly hope so because we done talked about 'em for your amusement.


Episode 9: Madeline Kahn/Bush (Dec. 16, 1995)

This week, we steel ourselves with eggnog to do battle against the Christmas episode from 1995 with Madeline Kahn and musical guest Bush. We discuss the two previous times Madeline hosted the show back in the 70's before diving headlong into the dour reality of the episode before us. Tangents include eggnog, David Spade's short lived animated show Sammy and eggnog related tangents.


Episode 8: David Alan Grier/Silverchair (Dec. 9, 1995)

Fresh from his run on In Living Color, it's David Alan Grier and musical guest Silverchair! Includes an Adam McKay classic, JACKO ON HIS BACKO and a Weekend Update that damn near breaks us. Tangents include In Living Color (of course), random boxing memories and more!


Episode 7: Anthony Edwards/Foo Fighters (Dec. 2, 1995)

SNL kicks off it's three episode December '95 run with ER's Anthony Edwards and the Foo Fighters. We get the first (and last) appearance of Swabby, Anthony does a shockingly good Princess Di, and the debut of both the Joe Pesci show and Gary MacDonald! Tangents include holiday cheer in non-holiday times, Goodfellas V.S. Casino, and more! Join us, won't you?


Episode 6: Laura Leighton/Rancid (Nov.18, 1995)

Melrose Place star Laura Leighton and punk band Rancid stop by for a strange one. Includes an all-time classic sketch and a whole lot of Fred Wolf. Tangents include the history of the Dandy Fops, theories on Norm MacDonald and more!


Episode 5: Quentin Tarantino/The Smashing Pumpkins (Nov.11, 1995)

This time around, Pulp Fiction director Quentin Tarantino stops by the show to infuse it with his own special brand of awkward energy. Includes the debuts of both the Spartan Cheerleaders and the Dandy Fops! Side Note: This episode was recorded a week or two before the Harvey Weinstein incident blew up so don't expect any references to it here. It certainly does put some sketches in a different light, though...especially "Directors On Directing". Did you jam her, indeed.


Off Week 02 (Kumail Nanjiani, The David S. Pumpkins special, Too Funny To Fail)

This week, we get a little loose and utilize the Kumail Nanjiani episode to discuss the critical perception of season 43 as it stands now. We also talk a bit about the David S. Pumpkins Halloween Special and the recent documentary, Too Funny To Fail.
