Ladies and Gentlemen I'm Jim and the Ravens are going to win the Super Bowl. Since there is no live SNL next week I thought I'd comment on it now. The Ravens win because of there D and I hate NY. In less important news we have a new selected president of the US. I'm sure SNL could do great stuff with the outcoming president and the incoming one. OK yea this is a week intro, I'm sorry I just got back from my B-ball game and we lost by like thirty so I'm not in the greatest mood. But I have the only high school in America that has off tommorow so that is something to look forward to. Now with no further Adieu here is my review.
JIM'S PRE-SHOW THOUGHTS- I expected a decent show this week. A lot better than last weeks. Was I the only one who hated that show all the reviews I read people thought it was great? The keys to this show is less Molly Shannon and more of the rest of the cast. Where has Kris Kattan been all year he hasn't done that much? Now for the host. I haven't seen any movies with Mena Suvari so I don't really know her except she's pretty good looking. Kenny Kravits is pretty cool. I like his new song so this show should be pretty good.
BILL CLINTON- AH Bill opening up the show for the last time. I have a feeling that we haven't seen the last of him. He wasn't that bad of a president except he couldn't keep his kicker in his kniker. Ever comedy show will miss him Especially Leno, but enough with that to the review. Bill Clinton's opening was OK he had some funny comments like comparing his future civilian life to when he was president and suck on it comments. Even though Clinton is leaving I'm sure writers will have no problem with Bush. They didn't in this sketch. Bush was funny with his comments like being President for a whole year. This was a very decent sketch. B
MONOLOGUE- MENA SUVARI- Man how many times am I gonna have to see parts of Molly Shannon. God will someone staple her clothes on. For the sketch I didn't see American Beauty so I didn't get all of this Monologue but there were some funny parts that u didn't need to see the movie to get, like Lorne and Tracy. This was the first monologue in a while that Tracy didn't buy some type of drug. Since I didn't see the movie I'll only give it a B-
GATORADE LOVE BUCKET- This was a great idea. My grandparents 50th anniversary is coming up so I think I'll do this to them. A
ANOTHER ANNOYING SNL FLIGHT ATTENDANTS SKETCH- SNL needs to
come up with new ideas. There have been too many annoying Flight
attendants sketches. What makes them different is the other ones
were funny like The Bu-Bye attendants. Mya said "If you
putting up a fight your not getting on the flight" to many
times it got really old. This sketch should have been saved towards
the end. It totally sucked.
JANET RENO'S DANCE PARTY- This is one of my favorite sketches. It was good to see Clinton in this one it was pretty funny. Darrell Hammond and Will Ferrel are always funny together. I was so surprised to see the real Janet Reno on the show. She is a real good sport to go on SNL because they have been pretty mean to her through out the years. I thought her entrance was really funny I was laughing so hard. It was good to see stuff from the past and Clinton. Could the real Clinton go on the show later???? A+
RAP STREET- This is my least favorite non Molly Shannon recurring sketch. I don't see what is so funny about them. Are they real rappers to or just made up ones? The only reason this was funny was because Horatio's mustache was falling off and he was really trying to get it back on. That was very funny. If that didn't happen I don't think that the sketch would have been that good. Because besides that I didn't really laugh that much. B+
X-PRESIDENTS- I had a feeling they were going to do a X-president sketch. Reagan hating Clinton is really funny. Bush's real speech wasn't really that bad like it was in the cartoon. I'm sure his dad worked real hard. All the things Bush said was funny. Clinton humping the robot was sort of funny-sick but it made me laugh and that is what matters most. The giant chad being a bad guy was a good idea, and it backed up my theory that Katherine Harris really is a man. Barbara Bush being Horny is really nasty but making Clinton sleeping with her was a pretty funny idea. I didn't get the song at the end so I guess that was the only bad part of the cartoon. This is the best one this year. Both of the best have been X-President ones. A+
WAKE UP LITTLE SUZY- This was a stupid idea. I knew as soon as the girl fell off the horse she was going to be in a coma. It wasn't really that bad of a sketch but it wasn't as good as the three before it. C
WEEKEND UPDATE- I'm starting to like the combination of Tina Fey and Jimmy Fallon. I still like Colin better though. The jokes were just average this time none of them really stand out except the Texas 7 one. I like the sensitive one too. Jacob Silj was very funny. I thought the comment about whispering to his friend "You have to go to the board for me because I have and erection" was very funny. Not because of personal experience of course. The relationship between Silj and Tina Fey wasn't as funny as the one between Silj and Colin, but it wasn't too bad. Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton- This wasn't as funny as the first time but some of there Rhymes were funny. My dad would have really liked this. This was one of the better Weekend Updates of the year but the jokes weren't that strong so I won't give it an A. B+
LENNY KRAVITZ- This is a pretty cool song but like always I don't grade musical guests. N/A
VERONICA + COMPANY- Why do I even bother watching a Molly Shannon Sketch. She annoys the piss out of me. She gets to many recurring characters. The only funny part about this sketch was when Will Ferrel was Crying. Molly Shannon do me a favor and leave. D
THE DiMARCOS- I wonder if there will ever be another funny recurring character on SNL again. I don't think there will ever be another Church Lady or Wane's World again. Hopefully some writer can change that. For the sketch I think they were trying to emotional touchy feely thing with Mena and Lenny Kravitz. It didn't work. The DiMarcos dancing together was just nasty not funny. D
Lenny Kravitz- I didn't get to see the credits because they played the song too long. I wanted to see Janet Reno I still couldn't believe that it was really her oh well for the song It sounded pretty cool N/A
JIM'S FINAL THOUGH AND GRADE- This was a lot better than last week. This was a pretty good show. The cast was really great but Mena didn't really do that much. Its been like that all year with the Female hosts. The only bad thing was there was a little too much Molly Shannon. I really enjoyed this episode though. I only failed one sketch and that is the first time that happened all year.
JIM'S FINAL GRADE- B
BEST SKETCH- Janet Reno's Dance Party
WORST SKETCH- The Flight Attendants one
BEST CAST MEMBER- Will Ferrel
WORST CAST MEMBER- Rachel Dratch
The only reason I didn't fail Molly Shannon was because she actually was in the show. Rachel hasn't done anything this year. She was really funny last year but has barley been in any this year. It seems Will Ferrel wins best cast member every week. Well, there is no SNL for two weeks I think. I haven't checked out Saturday-night-live yet but I'm guessing two weeks. So until next time this is Jim M signing off.
