I was a little uncomfortable at the Barry Gibb sketch, given that it featured "Robin Gibb" even though the real Robin Gibb died. I know that given that the real Barry Gibb appeared that he was apparently OK with it, but it still made me uncomfortable.
I agree. I thought it was in very poor taste even with Barry showing up at the end.
Also, I detest Fallon so the whole show was a lot of fast forwarding for me.
I found virtually everything to be very good this ep. I won't be surprised to see most of the sketches here show up in Christmas specials in the future. I even liked the Celebrity Family Feud (loved JT's imitation of Jimmy) and Christmas Carol. I think Jimmy is always so happy and cheerful to be making an ass out of himself that you can't help but laugh with him. Also glad to see he lived up to his rep of not being able to keep a straight face during sketches.
To me the only dud was the Kimye sketch; as before it was awful. I wish they would drop those characters and pretend it never happened. I think Nasim is fantastic and like just about everything she's in... except this. I guess maybe it might be funny if I had any idea about anything any Kardashian does (I didn't even know Kim and Kanye are a couple and I have no idea what is going on here). The only even remotely amusing part was the Kardashian singers.
I do also wish I had any idea what the Madonna grills thing was about. So bizarre.
