    Sounds nice. I'd really like to see a compilation disc with all of the "Celebrity Jeopardy" skits on it.

    I think the Connery ripping on Trebek in the Celebrity Jeopardy skits were one of the funniest skits SNL has done in years.

    If only they would release the best of Gilda Radner!

    Given her popularity, I don't understand why this hasn't happened yet.

    I thought that music release was covered in this thread pretty well.

    I'm still waiting for a 90-minute compilation of the best mock-commercials.

    Hell yeah, man! I haven't bought any of the performer specific SNL DVD's yet....just keep waiting on the Phil Hartman title. I want to start my collection of this series with Hartman. If I only ended up with one...this is the one I'd want!

    Who's in charge of deciding who gets done when? Extremely irritating that Sandler would get TWO before Phil or Gilda got one. Ridiculous.

    Phil remains my fav all-time Saturday Night Live performer...but Will Ferrell is rapidly moving towards the number 2 slot....a very funny guy!

    C'mon...bring us the Hartman DVD already!!!!

    How are these "Best of" sets? I'm thinking about picking up at the very least the Will Ferrell one.

    By the way, you know what this thread needs?

    More cowbell!

    I have a few of the original BEST OF sets that
    were released to DVD a few years back.

    They are generally very good.

    Just wondering if these NEW releases have the
    same exact material as the BEST OF releases that
    have already been issued.

    I'm still wait for a Best of SNL Political Skits. I've never laughed as hard as those skits from the 2000 election. Maybe they'll get the idea and start releasing more of these. They'd be a HUGE seller if they started targeting topics, instead of the stars. I've bought a couple of the Best Of's that are currently out there, but if there was a Celebrity Jeopardy or political skits, I'd buy them in a minute.

    John, agreed completely. I would buy either of those in a New York minute.

    The Best Of John Belushi is gold-mine of whackiness!

    "THE THING THAT WOULDN'T LEAVE!"

    The legendary Joe Cocker 'With A Little Help From My Friends' bit.

    "Samurai Delicatessian"
