Black / John Mayer
October 4, 2003
Pre show thoughts: I love Jack
Black. I don't like John Mayer. Jack Black has made what would
be bad movies, like "Saving Silverman", into good movies.
John Mayer is someone who my mom listens to. This should be
a good episode. The new cast members are Kenan Thompson and
Finesse Mitchell. I only know Kenan from "Good Burger."
I have never heard of the other guy. Finally, Chris Kattan
is gone. He was good in the 90's, but he didn't do anything
in the 00's. I wish they would just cut down the cast. I think
Parnell, Dratch, Hammond, Armisen, and Meyers need to go. Hammond
was good, but he doesn't fit in. Besides, Richards is a good
A Message from Arnold Schwarzenegger:
Terrible. This could have been funny. They should have done
like an Arnold Ad or something. I can't stand these stale political
openings. Hammond's impression was terrible. I did not laugh
Opening Montage: Pretty tight.
Good enough. Jack Black is a funny guy. Sarcasm: Wow, we got
to see Ferrell!! Wow! End of sarcasm. That's all fine and
dandy. Why don't they put him in a sketch? What a waste. Expect
Ferrell to host this season. It is virtually a lock.
Huggies Thongs: C
Eh. Quite average. I remember when the commercials were funny.
The cookie dough Gatorade and the crying Jesus from the mid
90s were classics.
Queer Eye for the Straight Gal:
Very funny. Fey was funny. I wish I wrote down that line about
carpets or something. I laughed out loud. I knew that they
would have done a parody of this. I thought they would do a
Straight Eye for the Queer Guy or something. Whatever. This
was still funny.
The Wade Robeson Project: F
Stupid. I can't stand these lame sketches. Jack Black was pretty
funny with the donkey kicks. I didn't laugh once.
Italian Cooking Class: B
I laughed when Jack Black had his hair in the sauce. I laughed
when Jack Black was playing with his hair with the spoon. The
sketch was ok. I didn't laugh at the other people in this sketch.
Jack Black is saving the show so far just like Jack Black saved
Silverman if you know what I'm saying.
TV Funhouse: Yankee Super-Heros:
Funny. It wasn't great though.
I don't like his music.
Weekend Update: D
The news jokes were bad. I didn't laugh at any of the news stories.
Finesse, buddy, ummm.your movie references are a tad outdated.
How about writing new material. Kenan's Cosby impression was
great. Dean on. I think I remember Jimmy doing a joke on Arnold.
It was not funny. If I were doing the weekend update joke,
I would have said:
Arnold Schwarzenegger gave a
formal apology to the media and public last week for some past
mistakes. Arnold said that he was deeply sorry for the movie
Note: You could have also used
the movies: Jingle All The Way, Junior, Kindergarten Cop, The
Sixth Day, and others.
Anyways, the jokes sucked. Finesse's
material is outdated.
Father, Son, & Shelley Long:
I bet on paper this looked funny.
I don't like his music.
Wine Critic: B
Hilarious. Then it got old. I did laugh though.
Telemarketers Mourn: C
This sketch was ok. They could have done something funnier with
this idea though. The whole, "what are you going to do
at the dinner table when you want the phone to ring to avoid
the awkward pause" idea was funny.
Jack Black was the star. Where
was Jimmy Fallon? I am looking for him. I can't find him.
Where was Will Forte? I am looking for him too. Where was Darrell
Hammond after the opening? They should use Fallon for impressions.
They should get rid of those players I mentioned above so that
way we can see Forte or Fallon. I know a lot of people have
given Jimmy a hard time, but he really is a funny guy. I don't
mind the laughing at your own material that much really. It
is far better than Parnell making a skit boring with his monotonous
style. This season should be good. It is more lively at least
