    Pat Sajak is a fairly decent guy, I must say.

    Without a doubt, Ed is wearing the most vile / unsightly shirt ever seen on Earth !

    Ed Grimley was Martin Short's best character, ever!

    The best part was when Christopher Guest hits the boom microphone with his head.

    From back in the days when SNL had writers that actually wrote comedy. Back when SNL was trying to be funny and more than just a political platform for the extreme left.

    After I first saw this, I couldn't keep a straight face even looking at Sajak. Pretty decent guy.

    I can hardly believe Pat Sajak and Vanna White are still doing WHEEL OF FORTUNE!

    See? Now this was a good SNL skit. This is the SNL I remember and love. Just funny, quirky comedy. Nothing political about it. No disgusting subversive social commentary. No thoroughly unfunny relentless leftist bullshit/propaganda like the current scumbag incarnation of SNL. πŸ‘ŒπŸ»

    I videotaped this episode (on Beta!) and watched this skit many, many times. Ed Grimley even made my parents laugh, which was nice since we didn't agree on much in those days.

    This season (1984-85) was by far the best. Too bad most most of the cast members left at the end of the year

    Lorne Michaels returned the next season to replace Dick Ebersol after 5 years producing Saturday Night Live and the show was completely revamped, which ended up being one of the worst seasons in SNL History.

    Okay so like...I'm autistic, and honestly, I relate to Ed Grimley so much. I mean, his passion is Wheel of Fortune and mine is music production and vocal synthesis, but GOD he mirrors my internal monologue really well whenever I get to do any sort of work with someone I admire. I get overcome by this like...manic energy, my mind races through all the possibilities in the future, I fantasize about things like befriending my inspirations, working on long-term collaborations... I'm not gonna lie, autistic characters played for laughs tend to suck REALLY bad (see: Sheldon Cooper), but Ed...doesn't? Like yes, he's an overeager socially awkward obsessive nerd, can't help but relate to him. He's just so clearly a well-meaning guy who's passionate about Wheel of Fortune and makes the effort to get to where he is. I'm almost entirely certain that many Jeopardy contestants are a similar type. Also, the awkward body motions. God, that is TOTALLY a thing. I've been in this very excitable state myself and then had to go "oh crap, what the hell are my arms doing?" And that elevator bit, OOF. Yeah, we autistics call that an "infodump". I've...done that more times than I'd like to admit. And...this comment is four paragraphs long already so CASE IN POINT...

    Chris Guest barely holding it together. Also, SNL never knew what to do with Julia Louis Dreyfus. That said, and most importantly, high ceilings truly can be effective.

    I don't know why but this just made me feel sad. It's a weird feeling being suicidal and seeing someone who finds happiness in the dumbest feel sorry for them in a way. It didn't really make me laugh. I'm trying to get into more Martin Short stuff because Bill Hader idolizes him, this didn't do it for me though :/

    This sketch wouldn't be made at all today. It was a different time for comedy back in the mid-80s.
