Goodwill Find - The Best of Saturday Night Live - 1985-1991 - VHS


These tapes had been hanging around the local Goodwills for a few months. I'd picked them up at least twice and put them back.  But using the same logic that brought the Telstar home I said last week "if they'r still here next time..."  And of course they were.  So now they here with me, where they should be (I mean, the Retro Gods willed it, right?).

So starting next Saturday and for the next seven we'll have "Retro Scrod's Saturday Night Live" reviews of each tape.  I'm sure you wouldn't expect any less, right?
