<i>Saturday Night Live</i>: Bad or Superbad?

You wouldn't know it based on that terrible episode of Saturday Night Live that aired over the weekend, but Jonah Hill is a pretty funny guy. Superbad? Hysterical. Get Him to the Greek? Not a great movie, but he's amusing in it. The Sitter? Ditto. 21 Jump Street? You'll have to wait until Friday to get our verdict on that one. Anyway, the point is that Hill is usually on his game, even when the material around him is sub-par. But that wasn't the case on Saturday night -- not only did most of the skits themselves fail to click, but Hill also seemed distracted and disinterested much of the time. Here are our picks for which sketches were merely bad... and which were superbad.

Spaced: The Complete Series

Finally! Unless you're one of the initiated, you don't know how long we've been waiting for this. Available on DVD in its native U.K. for years, this 14-episode TV series was directed by Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz helmer Edgar Wright, starred both films' comedy team of Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, and was co-penned by Pegg as well. Also, it makes a lot of references to Star Wars, hence the Drew Struzan-esque painting of the cast on the cover of the box. Is it any wonder that American fans have been dying to get their hands on it? I mean, literally, through the black market? What a senseless waste of human life. The first Region 1 set ever would be worth it for the show alone, but the set is so packed with extras, you're really getting a bargain.
