Michelle Gellar / Faith Hill
October 12, 2002
Bear with me, as this is my first
time doing this. But, I am sick of studying for my midterm and
I have some opinions on the show I'd like to share, so here goes...
COLD OPEN-Chris Parnell and
*Not Will Ferrell, but Parnell
does a decent job... even though he does appear to be doing an
impression of Ferrell's "Dubya." With a little more
practice, I am sure he'll make a fine George W....again, not
as good as Will, but then, who is?
Monologue-Sarah Michelle Geller,Chris
Kattan,Rachel Dratch,Amy Poehler
Never my favorite part of the
episode, they always seem so fake and rehearsed, I enjoy spontaneity
and cleverness. This had neither. Although, Poehler and Kattan
had great lines with biting the Jimmy Fallon, the vampire bit
Swiffer Sleepers-Amy Poehler,
cute little kids
OK, can I take these kids home
with me??? How cute were they? They turned a lame-o idea into
a cute parody. Amy Poehler was good, but the kids stole this
one...especially the little boy at the end.
DARE Parody-Amy Poehler,Fred
Armisen, SMG, various cast members, extras
Hmmm...not really my cup of tea.
Had some funny moments, but overall kinda bad. And too bad real
DARE presentations are equally ineffective and lame. Not sure
what I think of Armisen yet...Ferecito left a bad taste in my
Daydreaming Clerk-Chris Kattan,Chris
Didn't like the first one, liked
this one even less.
Humorous, but scary.
Corona #1-Jimmy Fallon, Amy
Poehler's voice (???)
Since I taped this because I
had a bachelorette party on Saturday night...I skipped over it
originally...just saw the second one...when I read about it,
I went back and watched it. Loved Jimmy Fallon...totally confused
as to who the woman was next to him, but think Poehler did the
voice over. "BEER HERE...PLEASE!"
Saddam's Palace-Darrell Hammond,
Jimmy Fallon, Jeff Richards, Chris Kattan, and Horatio Sanz
By far, the two most entertaining
parts of this sketch were the Tony Blair comments and Horatio
Sanz making Jimmy crack up...other than that, lame.
Corona #2-Jimmy Fallon
Almost died laughing at Jimmy
using the bottle as a phone...his lines were great, totally hysterical...."I
can't hear you dude!!! WHAT??!!! Piece of crap!!" I hate
those commercials, but SNL found a great way to make them funny.
Will have to remember to parody this the next time I drink a
Musical Guest-Faith Hill
Absolutely LOVE this song...love
Faith Hill...love Tim McGraw...he would've been the only thing
to make that any better.
All I have to say is THANK GOD
FOR W.U.!!!! Great jokes...Justin Guarini, Michael Jackson, Krispy
Kreme!! Why is Seth Myers still only a featured player...he
was too damn funny, he even made the annoying Dell guy funny...favorite
line: "DUDE! I'm getting thorazine!!" Classic. (by
the way...manic depression and bipolar disorder are the same
thing...I'm a social worker) Didn't like the Ramada sisters though...tsk
tsk Maya, you're better than that!!
Hate Christina Aguilera, loved
this sketch. That video is terrible and I am SO glad SNL ripped
on it. Fabulous!! Although, Dean Edwards seemed a little confused
at one part...SMG did a good job.
Don't know what the hell Arli$$
is, but I am never watching it now. Didn't care too much for
this one, however
Tracy Morgan-SMG-Faith Hill-Lorne
Ugh...lame-o. Only saving grace
was Tracy's line to Lorne about getting him a Pepsi. I hope this
was the last one. Tracy is better than this...give him some real
Maya and Tracy
Since I love both of them, this
was hilarious!!! I loved Tracy's interjections and Maya can do
the best voices...still waiting for another Wake Up Wakefield
though, that's my favorite Maya sketch.
Funny, but not as great as the
second one. Enjoyed watching Armisen ( I think) get whacked in
the head with the bottle and Jimmy grabbing the "brews."
Did anyone see him on Conan when he talked about "taking
Derek Jeter out for a night on the town?" Well, if you didn't,
I am not going to explain it...but I was reminded of it when
he grabbed the bottles.
Blame Saddam-various SNL members
Yawn...some good lines...but
yawn. We get it...we have other problems in this country and
no one really wants to go to war with Iraq...but enough already...this
is the THIRD Saddam sketch.
Merv the Perv-SMG,Chris Parnell,Maya
Rudolph,Rachel Dratch, etc...
I like Chris Parnell, but briefs??!!
Come on!! SMG did a good job with this one. All in all, I liked
it...Parnell plays a good creep.
Overall: Kind of a lame ass episode. I am still waiting
for it to get better. I must say that last weekend's was a little
better in my estimation because I actually laughed more than
five times. But, still, neither episode had my stomach hurting
from laughing too hard and I miss that feeling. Hopefully
this week will be better, but with Senator McCain hosting, I
somehow doubt that. WHITE STRIPES!!!! They rock and they're from
Detroit, so you can't go wrong...by the way...I go to Michigan
State for grad school, hence last week's Hannibal Lecter sketch
was funny to me when it probably sucked to everyone else.
