Black / John Mayer
October 4, 2003
This is The Dirty Centaur. And SNL had their 29th season premiere.
No grading for me I have to say Stooge has a very good format.
So I'm stealing it. Or showing how good it is by using it.
01 Arnold's 5 Points And Things Of That Nature
Good: Darrell has the facial features down, writers did their
Bad: Darrell doesn't have the voice down, no Gray Davis,
Arianna, Cruz or Tom McC
Misc: He's got Richard Gere's and John Travolta's vote.
02 Opening Credits
Good: Forte, Seth and Jeff bumped to RP, seems more
Bad: Armisen stuck in Featured Player label, Lenny was
Misc: Where were these three new featured players that
everyone said would join the cast?
03 Not This Jack!
Good: New set is okay. Kyle Glass, Will Ferrell, Jack's family
backstage was amusing. Didn't fall apart the farther it went
Bad: No Lorne
Misc: Hey it's Seth Meyers! No it's WILL! Did Darrell
just go home after the cold opening?
04 Huggies Thongs
Good: Nice idea
Bad: Thong song, one joke commerical
Misc: Already 12 year olds wear thongs so babies are next?
05 Queer Eye For Straight Gal
Good: Carpet joke, other typical lesbian stuff
Bad: The critics comments kinda killed it.
Misc: Paula Pell cameos, I wouldn't be suprised if this
ever happens...Tina probably wrote this
06 The Wade Robson Project
Good: Jack's dance moves,
Bad: Everything else, another sign SNL's audience are those
Misc: I never heard of this show, have you?
07 Cooking Class
Good: Gabe, Vasquez and his garlic, Gerald's hair and his
Bad: Starting to get predictable with Gabe + Ruth,
Misc: Watery stools disgust the audience, Pete didn't
click but potential as Tracy's replacement, they should use Cutco
08 Yankee Superhereos
Good: Got the Yankees and what they do down, mentioning
of Booya!, Jeter's powers
Bad: Made their point very quick, Robert can do better,
Misc: where are The X-Presidents? Recall in Calli? Maybe
if I was a New Yorker...
09 Weekend Update
Good: Jeff's Rush Limbaugh impression, top notch. What Bush
Can't Find. Keenan's Bill Cosby
Bad: Finesse's movie comment on Denzel's new movie was
a tad long. Emmy clip shoud've ended after Cosby mentioned his
Misc: CTHD is a few years old, probably something from
FM's standup. Larry David was the 'while guy' behing Cosby at
the Emmys and the actor they had play him was okay. Larry was
a writer for SNL back in the 80s and only got about a few sketches
on air. The ones that didn't make it, ended up as Seinfeld episodes.
No new opening or WU set. Black people aren't that great in hockey.
Insert Chris Rock's comments here.
10 I Was On Cheers
Good: Amy's dead on Shelly Long impression, Cheers song
Bad: Banter wasn't really funny
Misc: Bring back Long in future
11 Wine Tasting
Good: Managed to continue be funny after countless wine
tastes. Salvaged show.
Misc: Dratch as her usual old lady
12 Last Telemarketing Call Ever
Good: Forte's line, drinking fountain line, the axe
Bad: Just Jack, no cast really, cut at the end due to
Misc: Just watch TV while you eat dinner. Great bumper
to end sketch.
Misc: Quick thankyous to John, Kyle... Will the writers and
cast. Then NBC cut to something that anybody who watches SNL
ain't watching and would rather see the credits.
In summary and in conclusion... Jeff has another great
impression. Darrell will make atleast one appearence next week
since Arnold will either win/lose. Will and Kyle could've been
used since the show was weak at times. Pull out the Celebrity
Jeopardy! set and let's bagel! Rudolph was everywhere. The new
guys were good and for some reason looks like they'll appear
more often than Tracy and Dean. Of course this was the first
epiosde.When the Tenacious D Movie is out, Kyle and Jack should
host together. Looking forward to the show, and disapointed.
Could've watched Centaur porn while: Wade Robson Project,
Yankee Superheroes, John Mayer performing aired.
Stud of the Night: Jack Black
Trip to Solyent Green Factory: Forte could've done 1.5
tours between the mono and the last sketch
