I reflect on Stevie Nicks' Fajita Roundup the way most people reflect on their wedding day.

Watching this sketch is going to be the most idiotic decision ever, and will keep paying negative dividends long after I think it's behind me?  Jesus, no thanks

Meh, it's only 3 minutes long

Like most of SNL from 1998, I'll rate as "mildly amusing".

Is it better than Derek Jeter's Taco Hole?

It's what opened the door for that sketch to be made, FTFA.

I can't believe I read that whole article. I need to reevaluate my life.

I remember watching that when it ran. I laughed my ass off. I was probably drunk. Lawless nailed it, and I am glad to read that Nicks though it was great too.

Interesting read subby, thanks. I love "behind the scenes" stuff, even its behind the scenes of a 3 minute comedy sketch close to 20 years old.

I watched part of that all the way through.

I first saw it back when Comedy Central still showed SNL reruns, glad I'm not the only one who still remembers this sketch.

It is close to 20 years old. It's 22 years old.

I watched SNL in 1998 and must've missed that sketch.  But, I saw it on a Stevie Nicks fan site not long after it aired.  Being in the days of RealPlayer, and video bogging down a home PC, I didn't get to watch it all the way through back then.  But yeah, that was pretty funny, and pretty damn spot on!

Article says most famous skit. Never heard of it and I'm old.

Ok. I watched it and cried. That was funny as hell.

"Fink says, the goal is to write it in a way that's not linear. It's not telling a traditional story; there's no need to move the narrative along from point A to point B to point C, because there's not really anywhere to go. Instead, Fink wanted to pile up jokes, to build them on top of each other until the audience was thinking less about why they were watching this specific thing at this specific moment and more about what each joke and each song was saying about the nonsense premise being executed."

Aaaaaaaand that's how you ruin a joke.

Anyhoo, the sketch works because Lawless nailed just how far her own ass Nicks can come across.
