I doubt it will happen, but I hope that since it’s the 40th anniversary of Saturday Night Live, they might finally release seasons 6-39 on DVD. I know there’s not even a chance in hell that it will happen, but seriously, they can’t just take SNL off of Netflix and Hulu, split the whole series up into clips and put it on Yahoo, and expect everybody to be happy about it. For gods sake, I just discovered SNL last year, as I live in Australia, and if you don’t have Foxtel, you probably won’t be exposed to SNL, unless you’ve got me on social media. I had just started to venture back through the seasons. I had watched seasons 26-37, and was starting on season 25 when SNL was taken off of Hulu and Netflix. I’ve only just managed to find torrent downloads that actually work, only to start playing episodes, and the quality is that of a VHS recording from the actual date the episode aired. Which is really bad quality, when you consider the episodes I want to watch, aired before digital TV was common in every American household. It’s not the same buying “Best Of” DVD’s because once you have watched the, twice, there’s no point in watching the, again, because 2 times is enough to cement every sketch in your brain.
Sorry, this post really got away from me.
But seriously, I would legitimately buy seasons 1-39 on DVD, if they were all available, because that would look sick on my DVD display.
Fingers crossed they at least do a “Best Of” DVD for Rachel Dratch, Ana Gasteyer, Kristen Wiig, Maya Rudolph, Darrell Hammond, Horatio Sanz, Fred Armisen and/or Andy Samberg.
