Aniston / Black Eyed Peas
January 10, 2004
Great stuff here. I say that
because it's basically an improvement of what Darrell has been
doing all season. Also, Jimmy as Zucker made it a little better.
I think the monologue would've
been better had they had the cast come out to sing the theme
song for Friends. Or better yet, the theme song to Cheers.
Jimmy as Seagal was about the
only good thing in this skit. Period
Normally I would have been wondering
why this is on again, but then I thought about it and realized
that this was one of the better things on this show today. Seriously!
Democrats versus Howard Dean
This was real good. With Jimmy
as Clark, I'm kind of hoping that Wesley passes up Dean, because
his impression was good, and Jeff's Dean sucks. Of course, barring
that Bush gets re-elected or not, After the first couple of times
Richards plays Dean, we'll probably end the 2004-2005 season
with a crap-ass Darrell Hammond as Howard Dean. Go figure.
This was a little lame, but thanks
to "retro" stuff AKA Al Franken's recurring bit, it
made up for everything.
Saddam and Osama
There's no way SNL was going
to pass this up. Also, there was no way these two were going
to go without laughing here.
Not very good!
Coco and Matsui
Thanks to Jennifer Aniston, this
wasn't as bad as it could have been. Thanks to Jennifer Aniston,
this was better than the one Fred and Maya did last year.
Very great bit! I wonder if
Franken had anything to do with this. Speaking of Franken, I
wonder if SNL is slowly going to go back to basis and get funny
people to write stuff that doesn't suck. Just think: only 31
more shows where Tina Fey is in charge of the writing. Unfortunately,
I might be gone from the SNL train by then, due to my every-so-often
why take a chance rule.
Thanks to this show, I'm actually
going to speculate that Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey's show
is off the hook next week. Well, it will probably suck, but
it'll look good thanks to this show.
Overall Grade: D, and I could
have given this an F, but the Cold Opening and Al Franken saved
