SLYT: The Terminator comes to save Jesus.

No intention to offend. But I need cheering up. This helped.

This is old, but I hope it hasn't been seen by too many MeFites already.

This "YouTube"... is it new?

Oh, MadTV. Is there any played-out cliché idea you won't explore?

(not blaming you, litterateur)

Is the double, no? Or at least as old as Christ.

No offense intended, but I personally think this kind of SLYT, without much value beyond distraction, is better posted to digg or reddit, not metafilter.

I must admit I've always been more a fan of Old School SNL, but I saw this over the weekend for the first time, and it touched a funny bone. Not to mention that Terminator figured prominently in my childhood. Okay. Terminator and Jesus figured prominently in my childhood, both of which have followed me into adulthood.

You should get some sort of restraining order. Neither the Terminator nor Jesus has any business following you around.

I fucking hate MadTV and just about anything that's ever come out of that show. Except Kenny Rogers' Jackass, I love that shit.

Is anyone else reading the end of that footprints poem in an Arnold voice?

I thought so.

Oh well, that's 4:51 of my life I won't get back (one tired cliche deserves another).

To digress, are there any examples of shows with laugh tracks which are actually funny?

Not to mention Father Ted and Alan Partridge. It's when there's laughter and you're not laughing that you notice it.

Okay, the Kenny Rogers' Jackass was funny.

Litterateur, I LOL'd. Haters gonna hate.

I don't know about tired cliche, but MAN did they spread the funny out pretty thin. Does it really need to take a full minute from "December 25th 0000" to "Arnold" standing up? Telegraph, people!

I hate Mad TV. Except for Honeydipper Dan. I guess because as a kid I watched a show that was just like it.

The funniest part is how much they make it like the real Terminator movies, and then he comes out with that Kermit the Frog voice.

That was a whole lotta setup for not much funny.

This completely inane, unfunny skit acquired epic new meaning for me after I listened to Artie Lange's "Too Fat to Fish." Get the audiobook if you can find it - it adds a new layer of sadness and tragedy to the whole thing.
Artie was completely coked out of his brain, suffering from nearly constant suicidal thoughts and the makers of Mad TV stick him in a giant pig suit and roast him over a fire. I won't spoil the ending of that part of the book but it's incredibly sad.

What a horrible, stupid show that was.
