SNL (Season 42) - Page 5

post #201 of 230

Yeah, crushing on her for a while, so, that was... something.

 

Also, while the People's Court didn't really kill it, I enjoyed the return of Death Bannon, and the subtle bit with Alex Moffat's Eric not knowing how to fist bump Putin.  Not to mention they set that sketch up in the cold open.

Watched the Fatal Attraction sketch. Pretty good. Apparently, some progressives are railing against it calling it "sexist" and saying that it gives the Trump administration "ammunition" because it's attacking a wife and a mother. What fantasy land do these people live in and how do we nuke it?

Two minutes into the cold open, I got the same feeling I get every time SNL tries to replicate the magic of a great sketch. I turned it off and missed the rest of the show.

It wasn't quite as great as the first go-round but it was still worthwhile.  i'm not sure if they should keep beating this Spicer/McCarthy horse, though...the returns will continue to diminish.

The upgraded podium gag was worth sticking around for.

Exactly, and that's how you go back to the well.  So much of the Trump administration stuff has been so lazy.  Once the novelty wears off there's going to be no bite unless they step their game up.

Most of the show stunk. I am glad, however, that there was not Rosie O'Donnell Bannon. Also cracked up that they acknowledge the Leslie Jones as Trump idea. The Beyoncé twins skit was horrible, which was sad since it was a waste of Tracy Morgan. And I usually enjoy the last sketch of the night. Usually that's when the weird shit shows up. But the sit-ups fart thing was probably even more unfunny than the Beyoncé skit. And I forgot how Baldwin is like Christopher Walken. Just shows up and reads cue cards and calls it a day.

It framed the only hero we've got in a intellectually lazy way. An unfunny shot.

post #210 of 230

It wasn't even a shot, really, any more than McKinnon's RBG or Merkel are.  But it also wasn't even as funny as those (which I don't find to be very).

That cracked me up too. McKinnon as Sessions was 70 percent funny, 30 percent scary. She looked like the bad guy from Poltergeist 2.

 

I liked the People's Court sketch. Putin as a character witness was clever.

McKinnon's Sessions seemed like a pointless rehash of the weakest portion of the first Spicer sketch, but then s/he quickly got to "We all know there are two types of crime, regular and black...." and well, damn.

I dunno if we'll see a full Sessions again. Seemed like just a quick hit for the "two types of crime..." line.
post #214 of 230
And that line was good enough to justify it. They don't need to do it again (until Sessions hits us with a fresh outrage, so probably next week).

Kate McKinnon had dinner with Hillary Clinton yesterday:

Tonite was spectacularly awful.

 

One of the worst episodes I've ever seen.

post #218 of 230

Jesus that's a high bar to exceed.

post #219 of 230
It was really bad. I expected Spencer to be a pro, but she frankly sucked, and the cast was missing marks all over the place as well.
post #220 of 230

Seemed to be quite a few flubbed lines in the first twenty minutes.

post #221 of 230

The TBD trailer was good.

post #222 of 230
Cecily Strong getting hit on by male feminists was pretty good. But that's about all the kind words I can come up with for an hour of show.

It was all set up. They had no idea what to do with premise. And the twist 'oh the female feminist hits on her and calls her a bitch, too hardeehar' undercut the whole joke

post #224 of 230
McKinnon as Sessions as Gump was ok. TBD was solid. The rest was terrible, maybe not the worst I've ever seen. But really pretty bad.
post #225 of 230

I haven't laughed this hard at the show in forever like I did with back to back Telepathic Trump Supporter Dog + Olive Garden sketches.

post #226 of 230
Cold open was meh. Telepathic dog was meh. Olive Garden was pretty good. "Complicit" was solid.

The rest, woof.
post #227 of 230

The Day Without Women sketch was obvious, but effective.

post #228 of 230

The rerun with Bill Paxton from '99 was a stark reminder that holy shit, Colin Quinn was fucking awful on update.

post #229 of 230

Sometimes my local NBC channel really pisses me off. They broadcast local sports when the 10pm re-run comes on, so I miss it.

I tried finding a stream of NBC from someplace else that was showing the SNL re-run, but turned up nothing but 24/7 NBC News channels.

 

Now that I know it was a Bill Paxton hosted show, I'll find it and watch it.

post #230 of 230

 I was surprised how weak the cold open was. Trump's lie about being wire tapped should have given the writers plenty of material.
