    im under the impression that the show saturday night live never made it over the pond. im totally shocked about this since you get our garbage shows like cops and springer and shit like that.

    the shows not nearly as funny as it used ot be, but its always been known for some really good sketch commedy. actors like adam sandler, chris farley, john belishi, chris rock, and many more got their start there (and at second city in chicago).

    anyone over there happen to see any of these, or did it really never make it over there? if so, im kind of shocked:eek:

    thats the thing with snl... its been around so long and had so many different casts that you arent assured to find it funny through reruns. some seasons are absolutely hilarious and others are really annoying... but pretty much any funny commedic actor/actress comming out of the US was part of its cast at some point

    SNL is so crappy, every time I watch it (which isn't all that much) I wonder who actually thinks that kind of garbage is funny. Especially when people like Justin Timberlake are guests and try to act funny - it's really pathetic. Mad TV is funny sometimes, but I find the humour getting kind of stale. I'm actually not really a fan of the all-American type of humor at all, dunno, maybe I'm just jaded. Conan is funny some nights, but he's always got the same old shtick too....

    We need something new!

    again... not really talking about the current shows.. the older casts were way funnier... though the episode a couple years back with christopher walkin as the guese might be one of the funniest things ive ever seen on tv. :centaur::laughing: :cry: :laughing:

    the best was when they were showing all the re-runs on comedy central, now it seems like they replaced it with re-runs of mad tv which is :thumbdown

    No but we get The Worlds Wildest Police videos with Sherrif John P Burnell :laughing: :slayer: :laughing: :slayer: .

    As an English person it is fucking hilarious watching him pull up in his car with dick head mates and chat shite:laughing: :bgrin:


    Haste made a thread with some classic quotes from him, I'll try and find it. :thumbup:

    :bgrin: :slayer: :laughing: :cool: :pimp:

    world's wildest police videos is the baddest program on tv

    but as far as SNL goes i've seen loads of them and i've only ever seen a couple of funny sketches. pretty poor attempt at comedy if you ask me, but i would say that as the UK runs the comedy, our shows are much better :wink:

    I watched this last night, it would seem that according to this man cars have only 2 speeds 100mph and stop.

    in the british equivalents the message behind a show like that is "dont bother we will most probably catch you". In that show the message is "DONT DO IT EVAR US POLICE ARE INFALLABLE WE WILL CATCH YOU"

    And how come whenever he is doing his speil some actor is getting done over in the background.

    "now look at this stoopid criminal"

    it's been on every night for the past few months on paramount2. i was expecting it to be really funny but i think it's absolute shite. most of the sketches are just not funny at all. i love sienfeld and i watch it every night but even when jerry or elaine is on sat night live they are shite.
