Streaming Saturday: Saturday Night Live (1975-Present)

snl

Last week my PS3 died a hero’s death. In the end, it went out doing what it did best, streaming Netflix so I wouldn’t have to eat my Honey Bunches of Oats in silence. As a result, I streamed Netflix on my laptop set up on a TV tray at the foot of my bed.

With this set up, I found myself watching some things I don’t normally stream, namely some episodes of Saturday Night Live from the middle of the 1990s. When I was a kid, I used to love watching SNL. I hadn’t noticed just how much of SNL was on Netflix.

So for this week’s Streaming Saturday, I decided to do something a little different. Below I’ve compiled a list of all the SNL-related titles available for streaming. It’s worth noting that the decade collections don’t have the full episodes. The musical performances are missing and many episodes have sketches cut out.

Check out the list below and don’t forget to follow me on Twitter @ObsessiveViewer, like the blog on Facebook and check out The Obsessive Viewer Podcast. Continue reading

Streaming Sunday: Tommy Boy (1995)

I lost track of time yesterday and didn’t get a chance to post my Streaming Saturday recommendation. Honestly, the reason is because I’ve been so consumed with the new season of Arrested Development to stream anything new. Okay, that’s not the full truth. I’ve also been watching Dawson’s Creek. That’s beside the point, though.

This week I picked Tommy Boy. It’s really hard to believe this movie is almost 20 years old now. I caught most of it a few weekend’s ago and, like the millions of times I’ve seen it before, it holds up very well. Chris Farley and David Spade made such a strong comedy duo in the 90s. The less popular semi follow-up, Black Sheep was also a great display of comedic chemistry.

Tommy Boy is a great road trip movie. If you haven’t seen it yet, you can correct this injustice by streaming it on Netflix or buying it on DVD or Blu-Ray.
