Walken / Foo Fighters
February 22, 2003
-When they first started doing "Hardball", I wasn't
a fan, but now that they've done it more, I think they have improved.
This was really good, probably the best cold opening this season.
A great way to start out the show. Walken was also good and of
course so was Darrell..
-Christopher Walken is one freaky dude, but a great actor. He
was really good in "Catch me if you can" and i'm glad
he's nominated for an oscar, even though chances are, he won't
win, but its cool that someone from C.M.I.Y.C. got nominated.
Anyways, this was a typical Walken Monologue with the singing
and dancing. They didn't let it drag, so that was cool
-Well, yeah this sketch was "owned" by Walken. No question
about it. Seth did a good job as the host of the tacky show,
Pranksters, but Walken made this skit work. I think they could
have done a little more with the material, but all in all, it
was a great way to start the show. Also, I like calling someone
a "Stifley Stifferson"..
This is the 3rd episode i've seen Walken host and this was my
least favorite "Continental". My favorite was when
Christina A. was MG, but this didn't seem that great. It wasn't
a waste of time or anything, but it wasn't one of the better
ones. Hearing Phil do the voice over is great.. Glad they didn't
I'm all for seeing Christopher Walken go crazy, but this sketch
was just so-so. It could have been better, but it wasn't the
worst skit of the night.. I'm surprised they showed this skit
so early and not in the later half of the show..

Great to see Dean getting more work. His Don Cheadle impression
is very good. This was great. It was short and to the point.
-This was a pretty raunchy skit. I'm surprised they got away
with what they got away with. It wasn't really funny, it just
seemed to be more *Shock Humor*, (Like the bird skit in the Julianna
Margulies ep; although it wasn't THAT bad..)
-They should have called it "CAMEO UPDATE", because
thats what really kept this update together. The jokes were definately
off this week, but I enjoyed the cameo by Steve Martin. Will's
was also pretty funny and Britney Spears was surprisingly really
good in her cameo as well. It was a very good update, but not
because of the jokes...
- I was never a fan of the "Lovas". I really wish they
could have used Will more effectively in a better skit. Hey how
about a "Blue Oyster Cult" part 2? Even that would
have been better than this.
-Wow Jim Carrey. What the hell was he doing there? Oh well, good
to have him there, but too bad he couldn't have been in a sketch..
-This was pretty weak. Fred is the ONLY good part of
the skit. Kattan is tollerable, but Fred is really what keeps
this skit going. I almost fell asleep.
I thought this show was
very weak. The cameos were great, but most of the skits were
in the C range. I was dissapointed with Will Ferrell, I wished
they could have used him better, like put him in a GOOD skit..
The show started out great, but it just fell apart.
Best Skit: Hardball, Pranksters
Worst Skit: The Luvas
Hope Queen Latifah will do a
good hosting job..
