Any older SNL fans here? I'm trying to find out the air-date of the first show I saw(original cast), and all I can remember about it is giant lobsters attacking the studio audience!

I wanna say September 1975? Just a guess though.

[QUOTE=FireStorm]That's too bad he's leaving..he was the only cute guy on SNL. Now there's none.
I think that guy Will Forte is strangely attractive. What do I know, I usually go for the nerdy types..

I'm not 100% sure which one Will Forte is....is he real thin with brown hair?
What characters does he do?

What does SNL usually air during the summer?
I know this week is the best of Christopher Walken...is that what to expect all summer? "The Best of ...."

Billy Crystal was supposed to be an original 'Not Ready For Prime Time Player' but walked off the set moments before air-time when Lorne Michaels cut a monologue he was supposed to do from the show.
Richard Belzer (a close friend of John Belushi) was used as an background extra in several scenes.

He's got brown hair and kind of a strange forehead. He's done a character who's a raspy-voiced senator.

Oh, that's not the guy i'm thinking of then.
I'll have to find out his name..he's real thin, brown hair, eh I'll have to look it up.

OMG - I can't believe you mentioned the 'Jesus Horses' line. Not only was that the best of the Update AND of the year, but it's up there in the top ones of all time. I still laugh my ass off when I think of it...even months and months later.
