SNL (Season 42) - Page 5

post #201 of 216

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.

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.

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).
