Its easy to underestimate the importance of SCTV.After all for most of its run,it was overshadowed by Saturday Night Live,which had one of its best casts at the beginning.But I submit that SCTV has had more impact than even the best shows of SNL.The writing the acting,and the production values outweigh anything Lorne Michaels and his show has done.So many memorable characters from SCTV,so many great sketches.Satire has never been done better on TV,than it was on SCTV.Shows today like The Simpsons and Family Guy,which have many satirical references,owe a lot to SCTV,not to mention the plethora of sketch shows like MADTV,todays SNL,among others.And some of the SCTV are still around in movies and TV,like Eugene Levy,Harold Ramis,Dave Thomas,Catherine Ohara,and Andrea Martin.Sadly,John Candy left us way too soon.Its a word used too much,but I believe he was a comic genius.There has been no one else quite like him.I wish they would bring back the reruns,not in truncated form the way TV Land did a few years ago,but the way they were originally shown
