  1. A great book, certainly the early sections are the most compelling (because that was when it *mattered* most, and could be greatly idiosyncratic) and periodically revisiting the lives of the original Not-Ready-for-Prime-Time-Players (and Bill Murray) and seeing how they fared and reacted to their time on the show is really affecting, particularly considering the needless death of John Belushi and the sad fate of Gilda Radner. However, even the weakest periods at SNL make for fascinating reading. And you are right about Dan Aykroyd, even taking into account Nothing but Trouble and some of the latter-day horrors he’s been involved with.
