With the sudden passing of James Gandolfini, I felt that I needed to post this segment from the 2004 season of Saturday Night Live. Here, James Gandolfini makes an appearance on Weekend Update to do an editorial on the New Jersey Governor situation. RIP James, we’ll all miss you.
You know, I really like this “KCF Shredders” commercial parody. It’s from the 1998-99 SNL season. If you’re like me and you grew up in the 1990s, this commercial parody was pretty accurate as to how they made fun of companies at the time at how they were marketing to the youth. It could be anything that seemed sort of bland or disgusting like shredded lettuce served with mayonnaise (which is even more funnier nowadays that we know that Jimmy Fallon hates Mayo) like in this commercial and all you have to do is put in guys skateboarding, old people trying the product and feeling young again or people just being a little too excited. Probably around the time this commercial first aired on SNL, it may have been overlooked. Nowadays, you go back and watch it and you enjoy it much more than you originally did when you first watched it.

Some advice if you ever plan on watching early 1980s episodes of Saturday Night Live. You should try watching “The Best of Eddie Murphy” first as that compiles pretty much all the more memorable moments from that era. If you’re still curious and want to watch more, then you definitely should try it out all episodes. Also, Season 6 might turn you away but I do recommend watching it just to watch Eddie grow from a person who stands in the background of a sketch to being a huge deal in a matter of months. The early 1980s were a very different time for the show, if you look closely, you’ll find some hidden gems in that era that barely get talked about at all
I’m sorry if I’m ruining your date but I’m actually a really rational person.
Great 2012-13 cast photo.

I love how during the summer, some of the men of SNL will grow out beards because it’s the only time of the year when they don’t have to shave lol
That Dance Class sketch from the Christina Applegate episode reminded me of this sketch from the season 28 Adrien Brody episode
