Tried watching this after many years of not seeing it. Not sure if I matured or the show is just not funny anymore but wow I was disappointed and not how I remembered it. Tried several of the new episodes but just can't bare it anymore and there is a lot of other stuff to watch instead.

When are you gonna put the new Donald Trump episode here?

I'm noticing an odd trend where the really funny episodes of SNL are when the non-comedians are headlining, the humour in skits feels less forced, i.e. Seth Rogan's skits (39x18) felt really forced (and half of them seemed to be about weed, where as Anna Kendrick's (39x17) skits felt less forced and mostly genuinely funny.

So many hilarious moments through out the years

About Me

I am Sophie and this is my website.

A little about me 👋 I am a marketing student in Paris. I love spending afternoons with friends in a cafe or a park.

But more than anything else, I love watching (.. binging…) series on my computer on rainy Sundays or any sunny day for that matter 🙈

I must have watched hundreds of shows by now, from romance to science-fiction series. Often I like to go back to a show I enjoyed. But I don’t feel like watching it all over again…

I created this website so myself and others could find the best episodes of our favourite shows. As of today, I have about 1,000 shows on the website with votes and rating coming from fans.

Hopefully, you can join me from your sofa and enjoy some nice TV!
