EPISODE REVIEWS


Nathan Lane / Metallica
December 6, 1997


Opening: This was hilarious. I nearly wet myself! I loved the whole "Keep Rivera away, Diane" thing and I loved Molly and Jim as the Mcough's. It was a great start for the show.

A+

 

Monologue: I really don't like Nathan Lane that much, but I liked the fact that they had just about everybody in it. I loved it when Will came stumbling out onto the stage.

Chess For Girls: Ummm, okay, it worked for about 2 seconds. I would have rather watched a commercial.

C-

 

Spartan Cheerleading Dream: I really liked the whole "birth mother" thing with the "Say what yo' gonna ask Santa fo'?" What's up with the Dallas cheerleaders?

B+

 

The Quiet Storm: I think this was pointless and stupid, nothing really funny about it. I mean, just another murder in New York.

D

 

Sister Wendy Beckett: I loved Nathan as a nun! It was really funny, because he reminded me of an old school counselor.

B

 

The History Of Vaudeville: This was just okay. It really wasn't that funny in my opinion.

C

 

Weekend Update: Okay, I hate Norm 'cause he called Kattan gay, but I must admit, it was funny. I liked the "Real World Thing" and their thing in common.

A-

 

Metallica: I really never liked them before, but after seeing this, I'm thinking about getting the Re-Load CD.

Songs That Ruined Everything: This was kinda out of my generation and I didn't know some of the songs, but the one's I knew were funny.

Vance and Miss Milo: Once again, Nathan played a great woman. (Is it just me, or am I picking up on something here?)

Metallica: Like I said before, they rock.

A
