Garner / Beck
February 15, 2003
Hello out there, you SNL-ers.
My name is Joe Morgan, and this is my first episode review. But,
before the review, let me tell you about myself.
I am from the great state of Wisconsin. Well, Wisconsin Rapids
to be exact. The town is located in the central part of Wisconsin,
if you read a map. Anyway, I am 22 years old, and work at the
local Pizza Hut.
I've always loved SNL, because it's the only show that still
dares to be funny, even close to 30 years from now. Alright,
enough babbling. Time for the review!
Tonight's host is "Alias" super-spy/chick and star
of the movie "Daredevil", Jennifer Garner. The musical
guest is Beck. So, in the immortal words of Jackie Gleason, "awaaaaay
Bush Address starring Chris Parnell as President bush
There wasn't much audience laughter during this, but Parnell's
Bush is alright. Sure, it's only the third time he's done this,
but I like his impression.
Score(from 0 to 50):40
Jennifer looked stunning, and she has a hell of a singing voice.
All the men were used for this, and they all did pretty well.
This was so fun, I wish it was real. Nonetheless, some very good
Lights On starring Seth, Jimmy, Fred, Maya, and Jennifer
Pretty good start. It was a little awkward seeing Jennifer turn
into Fred, but that was a quibble. Jimmy did indeed say G.D.
during the sketch. That's a no-no.
Wake Up, Wakefield starring Rachel, Maya, Horatio, and Jennifer
This was good. I've liked this sketch from the beginning. Rachel
and Jennifer's lip-lock was suprising. Horatio as the principal
was funny, especially when he sang Missy E.
Saddam Calling Osama starring Jimmy, Horatio, and Fred
It was O.K. I did like all the guy's impressions. Jimmy
and Horatio cracking up again was funny.
Soap Opera starring Jennifer, Chris K., Seth, and Chris P.
Again, just O.K. Everyone was alright. The last line with
Chris K.'s voice spoken deeply was good.
Twins At Pad starring Jennifer, Jimmy, Chris K. and Rachel
Very funny sketch with everyone, especially Rachel with that
arm sticking out of his head, doing well. The last line is a
Weekend Update with Jimmy, Tina, Jeff, Tracy, Chris P, and
Very good Update this week, with several good jokes. My favorite
was the Atari joke. It was amazing how they timed the effects
with Jimmy's mouth. Burt Bacharach impression was good. If he
comes back, I wonder how many more words he can come up with
that rhyme with Iraq. Tracy was seen too briefly, and Chris P.'s
rap was alright. I also like the bits at the end where some person
makes off with Jimmy's pencil. By the way, about Jimmy's joke
for Screech, I think he said the f-word instead of funky.
That's probably why the audience gasped there.
Music I don't comment on, unless it's a country act. So, let
me say that the Chicks were great last week.
Michael Jackson in a Tree starring Amy, Rachel, Jennifer and
Pretty weird sketch, with Amy's Jackson alright, but not high
itself. Rachel's Elizabeth Taylor was good, but Jennifer has
the Elvis accent down pretty good. Dean's Jackson was good, too.
Wal-Mart starring Jennifer, Amy, Rachel, Seth, Maya, and Fred
This was a funny last sketch, because this was from personal
experience. You see, I used to work at a Super Wal-Mart for a
few months. I liked all the comparisons as to how big this store
was. The I know's did get a little annoying, but, again, it was
Total score(out of 550):481, or 87%.
Overall, I liked this show. There were some quibbles, but it
was an enjoyable show. Next week, it's Oscar nominee( for "Catch
Me If You Can") Christopher Walken, and musical guests Foo
Fighters, fightin' foo. Until then, Mind where you step! SO LONG!
