If you haven't picked up on Serial yet, you're missing out.

We're planning on blasting through the whole series over the Christmas break, but some in the office have already got through it and say it's required listening.

Since it's become a cultural phenomenon, sure enough SNL needed to do a parody of it.

SNL's Cecily Strong takes on the role of Sarah Koenig and, we're told, does it pretty convincingly.

Some of the jokes may fly over your head if you're not a long-term fan of Serial, but come back to this after you've listened through.
