Brendan Fraser / Bjork
October 18, 1997
After coming off of a pretty weak episode with Matthew Perry, "SNL" needed a good pick-me-up. They found it with Fraser.
[OPENING] Janet Reno's Clinton Fantasy
Ferrell's Reno gets better and better. Hammond's Clinton was great. "Make me happy as magic dragon." The kiss topped it all off.
Did anyone notice the different music?
[MONOLOGUE] Brendan Fraser
Really good. Not much to say otherwise.
[COMMERCIAL] Lemon Glow Floor Cleaner
Not their best commercial. I bet they realized they can't just show the same commercial week in and week out. Not to bad.
[SKETCH] Xena: Warrior Princess
About time they made fun of this show. The interaction between Fraser and Shannon was superb.
Oh My God, what a great skit. Bake sale, I'll be there. This on could make the best of '97-'98 easily. Laughed my ass off. That's funny
[SKETCH] Delicious Dish
About time, damn it. The picture part was great, as was the part about hoping the censors weren't listening, or when Fraser said he didn't get the joke, or when ...
[MISCELLANEOUS] Go Lords

[SKETCH] Crazy Lady gets Prescriptions Filled

[MUSICAL GUEST] Bjork

[MISCELLANEOUS] Brendan Fraser sings Buddy Songs
This was dumb. Did anyone else see some sort of theme in this show?
With some of the greatest skits in latter "SNL" history, and one of the worst in all of "SNL's" history, this was a great show. If there had been no Mango, a perfect show. But I am forced to give it a
