Overview

When it comes to the daunting task of hosting Saturday Night Live, no one gets the job done quite like like actor Christopher Walken. From his delightfully sleazy turn, "The Continental," to his insistence that "Don't Fear the Reaper" "gotta have more cowbell, baby," Walken quickly became a fan favorite. Now SNL fans can revisit some of their favorite moments with Walken thanks to this laugh-a-minute release from Lions Gate Home Entertainment. Presented in 1.33:1 full-frame, the image as presented on this release looks just as good as when it originally aired on NBC. Audio is presented in closed-captioned English Dolby Digital Stereo. In addition to everyone's favorite sketches, Lions Gate has also included a trio of intriguing extras. After viewing "The Continental" from an entirely new perspective in "Making Continental," viewers also have the option of accessing a pair of dress-rehearsal sketches that never aired including a scene in which Walken plays the angel of death, and another in which he dons the familiar coat of everyone's favorite Happy Days greaser, the Fonz.

    Christopher Walken is the Best!

    As a rabid SNL fan, particularly the early years, this collection rates right up there. The "Continental" is a scream and there are two skits with this character. And of course, "more cow bell" is a classic. If you are an SNL fan, this is a must have!
