Over a month ago, Netflix promised that they were about to add every past season of Saturday Night Live to its Watch Instantly service, which sounded amazing. Unfortunately, they’ve been dragging their heels, as the only seasons available since then have been seasons 1-5 and 30-36. But they’re finally adding some more! As of this morning, seasons 6-12 are now available to watch. Finally, you can see that classic Bernadette Peters episode from seasons 7!
The episodes are all edited, mostly to have the musical guests removed, and their running times are as short as 25 minutes and as long as 51 minutes, which is pretty much a complete episode. It’s not clear what forced them to trim these episodes down so heavily, but the average looks to be close to 35 minutes, which is pretty good.
