Wood / Jet
December 13, 2003
Hey everyone. Im so proud of
myself, I've finally managed to write a review for two straight
shows!!! Anyways, Elijah Wood is a great actor, but he's rarely
seen in comedic roles so this will be a true test of how funny
he really is. Jet is a relatively unknown rock band, who in my
opinion is one of the best new artists out there. Im looking
forward to their performance(s). Anyways on with the review.
Grading system- 1_horrid, 2_couldve been worse, 3_good, 4_great,
5_couldn't have been better
Cold Opening- Hardball sketches
always get good reviews. Did anyone else notice that if Hammond
comes back next season he'll pass Kevin Nealon for the most seasons
on SNL as a cast member? anyways, this was funny as hardballs
usually are.. ok that sounded bad, but you know what I meant.
Monologue- Chris Kattan makes
his second appearance of the young season. Anyone else think
he's desperate for employment? It's odd, towards the end of
last season, everyone couldn't wait for him to leave the show,
now whenever he makes cameos, everyone loves it.. hmm... Rating_3
Choir- wow. Theyre singings so
bad it rivals mine. But this was without a doubt the funniest
sketch of the night. They really need to make this a recurring
sketch, because I could not stop laughign. Rating_5
Queer Eye- The idea of giving
Santa and Mrs Clause makeovers is pretty funny. I just knew SNL
was gonna make fun of htis show sooner or later. But why didnt
they get Kattan to paly one of the gay guys, he's so good at
it lol. Rating_4
Smigel's cartoon- we havent seen
one of these in a long while. This was really good, but it was
too short. Rating_4
Wake up Wakefield- another sketch
we haven't seen in a long time. I like the joke about fountains
of wayne beign a flash in teh pan. so Megan likes Gay Aiken now?
Jet- its too bad I dont rate
musical guests, cuz these guys rocked.
Weekend Update- The John Meyer
joke was absolutely hysterical. Jimmy Fallon explains what you
did was funyn as well. The rest of update pretty much sucked.
and Maya looks more like Wanda Sykes than Whiteney HOuston. Rating_3
Versace- Ive never seen a Versace
sketch I liked. I am doubtful I ever will. Rating_1
Rialto Grande- omg I can not
believe they brought this back. This was one of hte funnier
Jet- THIS SONG KICKED ASS! IF
ANYONE KNOWS THE NAME OF THIS SONG PLEASE LET ME KNOW SOMEHOW
(aka email)! JET RULES.
Overall Rating(all ratings added
up)- 31, losing to Al Sharptons 35 last week. since those are
the only two episodes ive reviewed. I dont have the score for
any others. If anyone has anything at all to say about my review
feedback is greatly appreciated, or if anyone knows the name
of the second Jet song let me know. Until Jan 10, later all.
