Saturday Night Live Complete Season Reviews

I am checking out the reviews to the now three seasons available of the "Complete Saturday Night Live" and am amazed at how many reviewers are upset about the omission of the commercial break bumpers and more importantly of the video quality.

For people who "poo poo" the shows due to that have got to remember that video tape before 1980 on network television was considerably worse than in the 1970s. It's also more difficult (though not impossible) to make the video quality better.

It's a lot of complaining for nothing. Imagine if it was kinescopes.

The bumpers are an unfortunately loss, but at least they have the final one before the goodbyes.
