Only funny part was Drew Barrymore showing up on Weekend Update...
First, let me smugly say: I called it!!
I thought it was a halfway decent episode.
I like the "Carol" character. Horatio Sans looks so ridiculous in drag that the script for the sketch can be a total dud and just looking at him still makes me laugh. Also, I guess I'm mentally 12 but an ugly fat girl graphically announcing that she's off to make a bowel movement cracks me up for some reason.
Maybe because I'm mentally 12 I thought the "pirate convention" was sort of funny. "What's your favorite fast food restaurant featuring roast beef sandwiches?" "Oh, I dunno... Arby's?" "ARRRRRRRRRRRRBY'S!!!!!"
That made me laugh too!
Not a great episode, but not too bad. I was laughing really hard during the Pirate Convention. I thought the Sarsgaard's SARS gaurds was funny. The digital short of a "Young Chuck Norris" was hysterical. Andy Sanberg(sp?) is awesome.
I totally agree, Mister Sparkle. It was funny seeing Rachel Dratch having to hold back to keep from losing it after the TV came back up. In fact, that was the only thing really enjoyable for me this week. Even Weekend Update felt cobbled together with bad jokes, and WU is usually the one part of the show where I know I'll be laughing.
Steve Martin hosts in two weeks, though, which ought to be good for a few chuckles.
I completely missed this. I must have gotten too liberal with the FF button.
I read elsewhere that because of the technical problems in the hotel room sketch, they replaced it with the dress rehearsal version for the West Coast feed. (And apparently, they also had Don Pardo re-record the opening, which he had flubbed live.)
Something else I forgot to comment on: the "baby toupees" fake commercial sketch started with a voiceover, and I was surprised they'd gotten Andy Richter to do it -- but then it turned out to be featured player Bill Hader. I'm not sure if there's ever going to be a call for an Andy Richter impression on "SNL," but I guess it's nice to know he's got the voice down pat, although he doesn't really come close to resembling Andy physically.
I'm pretty sure this was a send up of the movie The Shattered Glass where he played an editor who discovers that his star investigative reporter is a fraud. Loved the cats....
I don;t think the SNL producers can do anything about a guest who comes to NYC for the week and spends his/her time partying rather than learning lines and preparing for the show.
That was the only bit that got a laugh from my wife & I. The rest sucked bad!
Well, it came directly after the "Carol" sketch, so it's entirely possible that a great many people accidently FF'd right past it.
I agree. I was laughing at the Motel sketch-probably because we were sitting in a hotel at the time. Plus, the technical difficulties just made it that much funnier.
Can't WAIT for Steve Martin.
Here're some screenshots of when someone must have been playing with the "input" button on the TV monitor.
One of the interesting things about the Hotel sketch is that mentioned Hazelwood in St.Louis. Since thats were I'm from. I just kick out of that.
Just rewatched "Young Chuck Norris." Holy crap. If you missed it FF'ing through "Carol," (which I'd understand), you have to give it another shot. Minute 30-31ish.
Yeah I actually enjoyed the Pirate bit. I still chuckle about AAARRRRBY'S. But whatshisname the host added absolutely nothing to the skit, or the show overall.
Carol has GOT to go. Good grief what a waste of disk space on my Tivo! They've done a Carol script almost every week lately.
They're really trying to force feed us "Carol" aren't they? Memo to SNL: Drop the character..."Carol" isnt working at all.
I'll take Debbie Downer over this cr@p.
