"The Bryant's Prepare for Court"(9/10)
PLAYERS: Finesse Mitchel, Maya Rudolph & Chris Parnell
*Great cold open, solid start to the show tonight! Maya excelled
here this was hilarious! Laugh laugh and yes...laugh again!
PLAYERS: Halle Berry, Lourne Micheals(!!), Jimmy Fallon, TINA
FEY, & Britney Spears
*Best monologue of the season so far, and it's good to see Tina
out from the Update desk again! Tina and I are married... but
Jeff Richmond and her don't know it. Anyway this was a great
monologue, it had Lourne and a kiss between Halle and Britney
that was not meant to be! I loved how they shoved Tina aside
and how Lourne and Jimmy tried to get them kissing. HIGH-larious
PLAYERS: Fred Armisen, Chris Parnell & Finesse Mitchel
*Was this Fred's first commercial? Wait, I think he was in "Clappin'"
last year! Anyway, this is turning into the night of the featured
players! All three of them had multiple sketches and huge airtime!
This was a great commercial! A pill that keeps you gay! NICE!
"Don Zimmer's Sports Spectacular"(3/10)
PLAYERS: Horatio Sanz, Will Forte, Jeff Richards, Darrel Hammond
& Halle Berry
*and... BUZZKILL. Even New Yorkers need to admit this was way
too long and did not belong as the first sketch! It gets a three
for Darrel's Costas impression, but although it hurts me to say
it, this sucked.
PLAYERS: Maya Rudolph, Horatio Sanz & Halle Berry
*Ah, soothing redemption after the last bomb. This was so funny,
I love the Versace sketches. maya has a great impression. This
was really good with the little trick-or-treaters and Elton John.
So many good one liners ("You can't beat a bat flying out
of my cootch!") I was dying!
PLAYERS: Jeff Richards, Seth Myers, Maya Rudolph & Rachel
*This wasn't too bad, short and sweet with a good ending.
PLAYERS: Amy Poehler, Will Forte, Seth Myers & Halle Berry
*This was good stuff, loved the talking quickly through an orgasm!
Great last line too, "We're cumming!"
PLAYERS: Finesse Mitchel, Maya Rudolph, Chris Parnel, Amy Poehler,
Fred Armisen, Keenan Thompson & Halle Berry
*Wow featured players galore! This is the second time Fred has
done his Japanese character, it's awesome! He can do so much!
The three ghetto girls were funny, and thsi was a good sketch,
but it had a really bad ending.
"Sunday National Enquirer"(4/10)
PLAYERS: Amy Poehler, Chris Parnell & Halle Berry
*Third commercial tonight? Is this a record? Well this one wasn't
as good as the other ones, but it had one or two chuckles.
*She is beautiful, great cleavage here! Never really a fan of
her music, I'm more rock and roll you know? But this wasn't like
awful, just not for me.
Weekend Update with Jimmy Fallon
and Tina Fey (9/10)
PLAYERS: Tina Fey, Jimmy Fallon, Fred Armisen, Horatio Sanz,
& George Wendt
* WU is usually a highlight of the show, and tonight is the same!
Horatio was bad though... all night he was off. I've seen him
live at Chicago's Second City when he was on the ETC stage and
he is so much better than what he is doing. But other than him
everything was great! Fred's Native American stand up comic is
great! Does he have a new stand up comedian for Update every
year? I must say I was hoping for Fericito though! He is great
and they better bring back the AAAYYYY, los mios! But the Native
American is awesome too, just no Fericito! =)~ Tina and Jimmy
were on fire tonight and it was good to see George Wendt! I was
hoping a REAL super fan would come get Horatio the hell out of
there, sweet LORD! But yeah, in summary Tina Fey is BB! Brilliant
"Best of Klymaxx"(6.5/10)
PLAYERS: Fred Armisen, Seth Myers, Rachel Dratch, Maya Rudolph,
Finesee Mitchel, Keenan Thompson & Halle Berry
*First of all Mike Myers' Joey Laurence impression is better
than Seth's, but Seth's was good! It was funny how excited Fred
was for the best of the 80's CD, and all he got was Klymaxx.
It dragged on too long though.
"Dan Rather Answering Machine"(5/10)
PLAYERS: Chris Parnell, Halle Berry
*Well the only two good parts was Chris's impression and when
her finally gets mad. Bad premise and worse ending.
* She's a sweetheart aww! Anyway hey LOURNE!! Did you not once
say that this show was part comedy and part rock and roll? Is
Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake and John Mayer rock and
roll? Or are you selling out to the teeny boppers? Please enough
of the pop, book a REAL BAND!!!!! Keyword: BAND!!!!!!
"Ashford & Simpson"(6/10)
PLAYERS: Finesse Mitchel, Maya Rudoplh, Keenan Thompson &
*Mildly amusing, but it's been done methinks.
"Speed Reader Looks for Love"(8.5/10)
PLAYERS: Will Forte, Halle Berry
* The second week in a row with a solid ending. They need to
let Will do more stuff like this he is so funny! I loved this
whole sketch, every bit of it. The best part is how confident
Will's character was that his reading ability would lead to getting
Main Players: Fred Armisen, Finesse Mitchel & Maya Rudolph
Favorite Sketches/Moments: Weekend Update, Tina & Lourne
in the monologue, Versace Halloween and the great cold opening!
Worst Moments: That POS Don Zimmer Sports Show
All in All: Not nearly as good as the first two shows of the
season! If you guys haven't noticed I am one of the nicest and
highest grading reviewer on this site, and if I am giving it
these ratings, I am afraid of the bashing SNL is going to get
form everyone else. Don't get me wrong it was a good show, but
not as good as this great cast and writing staff can do. Please
take it up a notch guys! Thanks for reading and keep sending
me your emails I love getting them and reply to all of them!
Now in the words of Donatella Versace:
GET OUT!!!!!!!! =)
