Just look at the cast? 90% of them went on to become major box office stars. Though its over 25 years old its still funny.
Its definitely better than SNL these days - I actually stopped watching SNL 15 years ago when the casts became sub par and the shows were putting me to sleep. Is it still on the air?
Definitely one of the better sketch comedy shows of the late 70s/early 80s. The episode where the networks go to war with each other using actual guns was hilarious. Count Floyd (Joe Flaherty) as a parody of Floyd the Barber from Andy Griffith was excellent. Bob and Doug McKenzie as the clueless Canadians obsesses with beer. So many memories.
