Has anyone watched the older seasons on Netflix? I was so excited to see the '70s, '80s and '90s episodes on Instant Streaming. However, I was disappointed that many of the sketches are missing from the episodes, and although the musical guests are introduced, they are never shown! I know this has to do with getting rights to the songs and whatnot, but I was still a bit bummed.
I love watching the old sketches though. It's fun to see which hosts and cast members have made it big since the show first aired. I also read "Live From New York," which is an oral history of "SNL," and I highly recommend it. It gives the reader a lot of insight to the show, cast and behind-the-scened action from the very beginning to the present time when the book was published.
