SNL (Season 42) - Page 5

post #201 of 284

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.

post #202 of 284

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?

post #203 of 284

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.

post #207 of 284
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 284

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.

post #212 of 284
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 284
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:

post #217 of 284

Tonite was spectacularly awful.

 

One of the worst episodes I've ever seen.

post #218 of 284

Jesus that's a high bar to exceed.

post #219 of 284
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 284

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

post #221 of 284

The TBD trailer was good.

post #222 of 284
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 284
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 284

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 284
Cold open was meh. Telepathic dog was meh. Olive Garden was pretty good. "Complicit" was solid.

The rest, woof.
post #227 of 284

The Day Without Women sketch was obvious, but effective.

post #228 of 284

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

post #229 of 284

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 284

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

post #231 of 284
They had a month and they came up with that...yeesh.

I mean the clown bit was kinda funny so was the Pepsi commercial and watching CK and Mackinnon crack each other up was smile worthy. But the rest...ugh.
post #232 of 284

I thought the soda-fountain and courtroom sketches were excellent, even though Leslie Jones blew her one line in both of them.

 

"You can't get out, we're in a tunnel!"

"There are no tunnels on the way to school."

"I don't think he's driving her to school."

post #233 of 284

Yeah, I don't know what you're on about. That was great.

SNL has now fucked with me.  Any time Jones fucks up a line, I'm going to think they are doing another one of those sketches where it is a review of a sketch, like they did a few weeks back.

I dunno, just really didn't like it that much.

And Fallon hosting again next week...why did he leave?
post #236 of 284

Noooooo!  Not Fallon!!!  It's going to be a BreakCharacteraPalooza!

post #237 of 284
Holy Jesus. The sectional bit was so absurd it should have been a Kids in the Hall skit.
post #238 of 284

Yeah, that sketch should have been dropped. Surely they had some others that were better.

post #239 of 284

The sectional commercial PSA was one of the best things they've done all year.  Cecily singing opera while activating the recliner was magnificent.

post #240 of 284

I also enjoyed the Pepsi commercial filmed bit.  It's a one-note joke, but Beck Bennett sells it multiple times older with just facial expressions.

post #241 of 284

Yeah, he was starting to look older through the course of the sketch :D

No way! It was fucking great. And the eyelashes skit has me crying. Full disclosure: I was pretty drunk.
post #243 of 284

The sectional PSA killed me. I was sitting on a sectional, which helped. Loved hearing Che's shout out to Rickles and Louis' tribute to him at the end, too.

post #244 of 284

Has anyone mentioned how brilliant the monologue was?

post #245 of 284

He sure did shock some people, LMAO!

post #246 of 284

The chicken/road joke deconstruction was genuinely impressive. I assume that's a bit from his new special?

post #247 of 284

Nope. And I do recommend the special, its solid. But the apparently main joke right in the middle of the thing, about the year 2017. Man, that did not work at all. But it led to some funny racist voices, which was great.

post #248 of 284

I saw him on his last tour, which was largely the material on the new special. He did the bit from the monologue about calling housekeeping to complain about not having his laundry when I saw him live, but it didn't make the special. But yes, thought the monologue was really strong and was impressed there was nothing repeated from Netflix.

post #249 of 284
Both political sketches were good. Family Feud seemed like it was there just to see how long it would take to make Fallon crack. Everything else seemed like music/singing was the main premise.

Not a terrible show but still not great.
post #250 of 284
If I find Fallon absolutely insufferable, should I bother?
