SNL

Do we really not have an SNL thread?

Anyway, i thought this last week's show (Rosario Dawson) was the worst in recent memory. I don't recall a single funny moment.

Was pretty crappy but the Hip Hop Harry spoof was pretty good. I can't find the skit but here's the real one:

I actually laughed a few times at the Rosario Dawson episode and thought, "huh -- at least I'm actually laughing" (it's not good when such a low absolute is a relative high, though). Mostly crap, of course.
It's such a fine line between stupid and clever.

I managed to watch it yesterday, and it seems to be turning faster and faster in Kristen Wiig's show. I enjoy her, and her Update bit was fantastic, but I fear overexposure...

The week prior with Neil Patrick Harris was a much more solid show IMHO

i think Kristen Wiig has great comedic ability but I tend to hate all of her characters. When she can just be in a skit and be funny I think she's great. To me she's more like the Norv Turner of comedy. She fantastic in a support role but when the the whole thing revolves around her it just feels like wasted potential and nothing works very well.

We never really got it here, I do love the Natalie Portman rap though.

I'd be happy to kill her, she called me a fish.

While the execution wasn't all that great, I loved the idea of the skit with Johnny Lawrence, Jame Gumb & Hans Gruber together. It felt like Nunis, JJ & I were all in the same room.

One of the few highlights of a so-so episode... And yes, it feels like it could have been much better. Hader was doing a great Gumb, and Sudeikis was probably the best as John Kreese

I squealed like a Nunis when I saw Cooper dressed as Johnny. I agree that Hader and Sudekis did the best job.

You see, Hopsi, you don't know very much about girls. The best ones aren't as good as you probably think they are and the bad ones aren't as bad. Not nearly as bad.

"Barack Obama on Tuesday became the 10th American president to call on Helen Thomas at a White House press conference. And she asked the same first question she always does: 'How will you end slavery?'"


"How long does an autopsy take?"
"Generally four hours."

I think that Sir Mix-A-Lot Photo Shop was the first time Keenan has been the lead in a skit that i laughed at.

Some of the faces he pulled in the Cougar sketch were funny, too.

tho I think all my SM-A-L laughing was at the premise -- I got essentially all the enjoyment immediately.

Too bad his "Fix! It! Fix it!" character doesn't seem to want to die.

Sometimes the raunchy stuff that only barely makes it on as the last skit of the night ends up being the most memorable or funniest (Colonel Angus being the prime example)

I thought the segment with Justin Timberlake and Jessica Alba as Jessica Rabit was pretty funny. I love Andy Samberg and I think he is always funny. He portrayed "Cathy" very well!

Yea i like when Justin stops by, he's always pretty funny. That character had a pretty good voice, he played it well.
