[OPENING] A Glimpse of our Possible Future

Ostriches? Where did the writers come up with that? It was pretty good, tho.

QUOTACIOUS: "You killed him [Dick Cheney] in a hunting accident!"
--Chris Parnell as the camera man

Grade: A

 

[MONOLOGUE] Charlize Theron

Another chance for Tracy to shine. I loved it.

Grade: A+

 

[SKETCH] Total Request Live

A good sketch, and, in my opinion, the one where Charlize looked the hottest. The "Whack-Whack" song was great.

QUOTACIOUS: "I'm Carson Daly and I wear these glasses just to look smart."
--Jimmy Fallon as Carson Daly

Grade: A

 

[MISCELLANEOUS] A Glimpse of our Possible Future

Not as good as the Bush one, but it was still pretty funny. Bill Clinton in his robe and can of beer was great.

QUOTACIOUS: "I was very disapointed with your performances on last week's pop quiz. Idaho, I'm looking in your direction."
--Darrell Hammond as Al Gore

Grade: A-

 

[COMMERCIAL] Marla and Cody's Blair Witch Tour

This was too good. I've heard Chris Kattan do his Azrael Abyss voice hundreds of times, but for some reason, this time it was doubly hilarious. My favorite part was Azrael being to scared to pee in the woods, and Horatio as the "Blair Witch".

Grade: A+

 

[CARTOON] The All New Adventures of Mr. T

Better than the first. These are so dumb and pointless that I find them freakin' hilarious.

QUOTACIOUS: "If you believe in yourself, eat your school, stay in milk, drink your teeth, don't do sleep, and get 8 hours of drugs, you can get work.
--Tracy Morgan as the voice of Mr. T

Grade: A

 

[SKETCH] Married to Marilyn

This one was faaaaantastic also. Chris Kattan as the gay makeup guy had me in stitches, and Horatio as a guy off the street fondling Marilyn's chest made me laugh my arse off.

Grade: A

 

[MUSICAL GUEST] Paul Simon

I'm not really a fan of Paul Simon, but I've got to admit, it was a pretty catchy tune.

Grade: N/A

 

[WEEKEND UPDATE] with Jimmy Fallon and Tina Fey

It wasn't the best Weekend Update of the season, but I laughed. Rachel Dratch's commentary was kind of RETAHDED. I did like Hugh Fink's commentary, tho.

QUOTACIOUS: "I just got Playstation 2. It's very time consuming."

Grade: B [oooohh, and there was a good "A" streak going, too!]

 

[SKETCH] Bedtime Stories

Mr. Peepers is da sh----poo. He really enjoys spitting fruit in people's faces nowadays. I remember back in 1996-1998 when he didn't need to do that to be funny. He still rules, and the sketch was decent.

Grade: A-

 

[MISCELLANEOUS] A Glimpse of our Possible Future

Ha ha. Pigs flying and Hell freezing over... the sketch was funny, but Jimmy looks nothing like Ralph Nader.

Grade: B+

 

[SKETCH] DeMarco brothers

Not as good as the one with Britney Spears, but the slip-slidin' thing was funny.

Grade: B

 

[COMMERCIAL] The Coconut Bangers Ball: It's a Rap!

I loved it. Definitely one of Will Ferrell's best ever. The deal with the ram / mountain goat thing was hilarious.

Grade: A+

 

[MUSICAL GUEST] Paul Simon

It was alright...but I was kind of glad it was a short song.

Grade: N/A

 

[SKETCH] Buena Vista Social Club

Pretty good for a last sketch. That's all.

Grade: B

 

[OVERALL]
It's only show #4 of the season and already an A- show. I graded nothing below a B so that's how funny it was. I was hoping for A Glimpse of our Possible Future with Pat Buchanan, but, what're ya gonna do? Buh-bye for now.

Best sketches of the night: Charlize Theron's monologue, Marla and Cody's Blair Witch Tour, The Coconut Bangers Ball: It's a Rap! --- A+
Worst sketches of the night:
Weekend Update, DeMarco brothers, Buena Vista Social Club --- B

Overall grade: A-
