    So far, I like the first half.
    It felt like Afterlife Experiences was a rehash of some UFO thing they did before. But I don't mind. I liked it the first time, and everyone still killed it in this one. And I kind of like it when they break.

    Actually, I'm drawing a blank - have there been any other recurring sketches this season? I can't remember any since "The Californians" and I think that was quite a while ago. I mean, I know there are recurring weekend update characters, but I can't remember any sketches/skits. Even the Wikipedia page for SNL recurring characters only goes to 2014-2015 at the time of this posting and a lot of those look like Weekend Update characters.

    Felt like Shaseer Zamata broke and was having a hard time getting through her WU segment. Though that kind of added to the awkwardness, which to me, kind of worked for that bit.

    I like Game of Thrones. I felt the same way watching the season premiere.

    And yet that wasn't the episode they were lampooning.

    So happy to see Dana back doing the Church Lady. That was my favorite sketch when I was in high school. I even had a Church Lady poster on my bedroom wall.

    It was formulaic, but I really like it. It's like the Stephon bits. It's just so bizarre, and even the players have trouble doing the lines. Kate McKinnon's demeanor makes the whole thing. I love that bit. :D
