Join us as we explore vintage episodes of SNL, analyzing the show and the bizarre pop culture ephemera that surrounded it. Tangents are had. Jokes are made.

    Episode 52: Fred Savage/Technotronic (Feb. 24, 1990)

    Episode 52: Fred Savage/Technotronic (Feb. 24, 1990)

    This week, we're pumping up the jams with one of the youngest hosts the show has ever had: Fred Savage! Fresh from the highs of the cinematic masterpiece The Wizard, Fred anchors the show like a seasoned professional and delivers yet another strong outing for season 15. A small cameo from Rosie Perez is just icing on the cake.

    Episode 51: Robert Klein/Bonnie Raitt (January 28, 1978)

    Hoooo whee, this is a big one! This is one of the most fondly remembered episodes in the show's history, complete with the debuts of The Olympia Cafe, The Nerds and Nick The Lounge Singer's famous "Star Wars" song. But the real focal point is the beautiful chaos the show closes out on: The Atomic Lobsters, one of the most impressive sketches the show ever tried to pull off live.

    Episode 50: Peter Sarsgaard/The Strokes (Jan. 21, 2006)

    It's January so you know what that means: it's weird character actor time! Peter Sarsgaard drops by the show for a real strange one. Not only do we get TWO sketches based around his name, we also get one that nearly implodes live. It's a beautiful, horrible mess.

    Bonus Patreon Preview: Elliot Gould/Kid Creole & The Coconuts (Nov. 15, 1980)

    To fight back against the boredom from SNL's long winter holiday break, we've decided to let loose an episode from behind the ol' Patreon pay wall! It's the first episode from season 6 and we talk about the events that led up to Jean Doumanian getting the job, set the table for the rest of the season and dig into the horrors that await us!

    It's our big ol' honkin' Christmas extravaganza with John Murray of the SNL Afterparty podcast! This week, we're covering Eddie Murphy's first grand return to studio 8H with his 1984 episode (featuring the perennial classic, White Like Me). Elsewhere, we talk Paw Patrol, try to make sense of the dense layers in Lishman's Deli and more!

    Episode 48: Danny DeVito/R.E.M. (Dec. 11, 1999)

    Episode 48: Danny DeVito/R.E.M. (Dec. 11, 1999)

    It's the last show of the millennium and Danny DeVito is on hand to host what is quite possibly the horniest Christmas episode of SNL ever. Sex jokes! Body parts! Al Franken! Come party like it's 1999...because it is.
