Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble
Eddie Murphy began his brief but rich tenure on NBC's Saturday Night Live in 1980, the year widely regarded by fans as marking the venerable program's nadir, following the departure of series creator Lorne Michaels and any remaining members of the original Not Ready for Prime Time Players. Amid the disasters of that desperate season, the 19-year-old comic from Roosevelt, Long Island, quickly stood out, advancing from featured performer to star status by year's end. In three seasons, he created a stable of characters that remain among the series' all-time favorites. He was Gumby (dammit!), Buckwheat, Little Richard Simmons, and the host of Mr. Robinson's Neighborhood. As James Brown, he invited you into his hot tub. And as convict Tyrone Green, he promised to "Kill my landlord. C-I-L my land lord." The DVD edition of Murphy's best SNL bits includes these and more, plus outtakes and bloopers that are not included in the original VHS release.

    I loved Eddie Murphy on Saturday Night Live but this video does not capture those magical performances. Or else he just wasn't as good as I remembered. Either way, this was a huge disappointment and will be going in my next garage sale!
