This weekend, Saturday Night Live will close out its 39th season with alumni Andy Samberg hosting and St. Vincent as the musical guest, ending a "rebuiliding year" (per guest host Tina Fey) that saw a lot of new faces, a couple of breakout stars, the loss of one veteran writer-performer (goodbye, Seth Meyers) and the usual grabbag of hit-and-miss skits.

The 50 Greatest 'SNL' Sketches

We're going to concentrate, however, on the hits: Before you settle in late Saturday night — or whenever you watch SNL in this, the Golden Age of the DVR — here's 10 sketches from the past season that are worth returning to. Some featured long-recurring characters, some featured attempts at new franchises favorites, other were simply really wonderful one-offs. All of them, however, reminded us that when Saturday Night Live hits its marks, it can still be one of the funniest, giddiest comedy shows on TV. Enjoy.
