Jennifer Garner / Beck
February 15, 2003

By GirlyAmy

Hey all! I know that I have not reviewed in quite a while, but I'm back!

PRE-SHOW THOUGHTS:
I am not an avid viewer of Alias, but from what I saw of Jennifer Garner on Conan O'Brien, she seems really cute and animated. I don't listen to Beck, so I wouldn't be able to make a valid opinion on his music.

COLD OPENING:
Finally some of Parnell's Bush! This was a bit boring.
SCORE: C

MONOLOGUE:
Aw! Look at all those sweet guys with Valentine's Day gifts! Tracey's cupid was totally the highpoint.
SCORE: C+

CLAPPIN':
Funny idea! I enjoyed this.
SCORE: B-

BAR DATE:
When Fred was appearing when the lights were turned on, that was hilarious. The ending with Maya and Seth was funny too.
SCORE: B-

WAKEUP WAKEFIELD:
Oh my gosh! That looks so much like the dances I had in middle school! Aw, that was so cute when Tara danced with Sheldon. I'm glad Megan moved on from Randy Goldman!
SCORE: B+

SADAM AND OSAMA:
Looks like when Horatio and Jimmy aren't face-to-face in a skit, they don't crack each other up! They make a good pair though.
SCORE: B-

NEXT WEEK: Christopher Walken & Foo Fighters
Hello! I'm totally excited! Christopher ROCKS! I hope they do "The Continental" sketch! Wow-ee-wow-wow!

RETURNED GAY LOVER:
Finally Chris is showing his true colors. What was with the ending?
SCORE: C

TWINS:
Dratch looked completely hilarious!
"Hey, you can make out with her six ways to Sunday, but I'm the one with the Vagina!"
SCORE: B+

WEEKEND UPDATE:
Oh! I love Jimmy's tie! The definite highpoints of WU was the Smart Bra, Chicken Came First, I Am Sam 2, and Atari jokes. Who is Burt Bacarack? I also loved Parnell's song! He gives Eminem a run for his money! Hee-hee :)
Jimmy, throw that damn pencil! I'm sick of those gay characters getting rid of the pencil some way themselves.
SCORE: B

MICHAEL JACKSON IN A TREE:
I honestly think Dean's impression of MJ is way better than Amy's. Adding Liz Taylor was also really great.
SCORE: B-

*BECK PERFORMANCE*

WAL-MART:
This was clever and funny.
SCORE: B

MY BIG THICK NOVEL:
What the hell? This is gay!
SCORE: D-

OVERALL OPINION:
I wasn't feeling the cast tonight; they seemed distant, like not much heart went into this episode. Jennifer did a great job hosting, probably being one of the better hosts this season. A lot of WU jokes are bombing, with the exception of 3-4 good ones. They need to let Will and Seth have a little more action; they both have so much talent to offer to SNL. Please let Chris Kattan go! He always plays the wimpy or gay characters and it's exhausting.
OVERALL SCORE: C+
