EPISODE REVIEWS


Brendan Fraser / Bjork
October 18, 1997


(OPENING) Janet Reno's Clinton Fantasy   I think Will Ferrell is great as Janet Reno but in my opinion, this isn't exactly one of the best Janet Reno sketches that "SNL" has done.  Janet Reno's best sketch was the "Janet Reno's Dance Party".   Rating: 7 out of 10

 

(MONOLOGUE) Brendan Fraser   Personally, I think that the monologues have gotten funnier and better in the last twenty years but this isn't one of my favorites.   Rating: 6 out of 10

 

(COMMERCIAL) Lemon Glow Glass Cleaner   This was hilariousI love the commercial parodies!  I think this is probably one of the greatest "SNL" commercial parodies of all-time.  I especially loved the part when she showed the tattoo on her arm.   Rating: 9 out of 10

 

(SKETCH) Xena: Warrior Princess   Man!  This sketch was hilarious.  I think it was probably the best parody of all time.  It was great.  I don't watch "Xena: Warrior Princess" in real life so that's why I think this sketch was so funny.  There was only one big mess up on it and that was when Brendan Fraser fell to the ground and his wig fell of.   Rating: 10 out of 10

 

(SKETCH) Issues   What was wrong with this sketch?  It really sucked.  I mean, how bad can a sketch get.  Sheesh.   Rating: 1 out of 10

 

(SKETCH) Delicious Dish   Classic bad sketch.  It was really unbelievably unfunny.  The only joke I found was the one about one question.  Man.   Rating: 3 out of 10

 

(MISCELLANEOUS) Go Lords   What was this.  It was just a very bad TV Playhouse.   Rating: 2 out of 10

 

(SKETCH) Monday Night Football   This sketch was worst than how worse the people thought Kathy Lee Gifford was.   Rating: 1 out of 10

 

(SKETCH) Crazy Lady gets Prescriptions Filled   I have one word for you.  Hilarious!  It was extremely hilarious.  Man, it was funny!   Rating: 10 out of 10

 

(WEEKEND UPDATE) with Norm Macdonald   Norm Macdonald was great at Weekend Update.  Why did they fire him!?!   Rating: 8 out of 10

 

(MUSICAL GUEST) Bjork   Bjork stinks.  Why did they pick her as a musical guest?   Rating: -10 out of 10

 

(SKETCH) A&E Biography: Courtney Love   This sketch was great.  It was hilarious!  That's all I have to say.   Rating: 10 out of 10

 

(SKETCH) Man at Male Strip Club   All I have to say is that I'm still laughing from this sketch.   Rating: 10 out of 10

 

(COMMERCIAL) Shark Channel   I loved the program ideas.  They were hilarious.   Rating: 9 out of 10

 

(MISCELLANEOUS) Brendan Fraser Buddy Songs   Who can't like this?   Rating: 10 out of 10

 

OVERALL   I think this episode had some great sketches and some not so great sketches but still it was extremely hilarious.   Rating: 9 out of 10
