Trivia

Director Peter Atencio was planning to quit before the second season was complete because Comedy Central wanted the audience reactions to be part of the sound in the (pre-taped) sketches. Atencio and his team resisted throughout and eventually stayed on after the network changed their minds. The director wrote about his experience on his Tumblr page. See more »

Key and Peele make SNL look like the worst episode on Sesame Street
4 March 2017 | by TopDawgCriticSee all my reviews

Key and Peele make SNL look like the worst episode on Sesame Street.

If these two where put on earth to do this series and that's it, we've been blessed.

This is top shelf comedic brilliance in every aspect. The quality of the skits is outstanding. I'm shocked how they fit so much entertainment in 30 min. Yet it leaves me smiling all day. Even the extra actors in the skits have better acting skills than most of the hosts on SNL.

Good days or bad days, these guys make me laugh.

My only complaint is that I wish each episode was at least 60 min.

And very sad this legendary series is over.
