EPISODE REVIEWS


Matthew Perry / Oasis
October 4, 1997


[OPENING] Spartan Cheerleader wanna-bees Craig & Arianna

I thought this was a funny sketch. They used it to open the show and all, but they need to realize that they're using it to death. It gets old after a while, but it was funny how they broke into the school to practice. I liked this overall as a show opener.

Rating: 8 out of 10

 

[MONOLOGUE] Matthew Perry

This was a pretty funny monologue. It kept my attention and didn't bore me to death like some in the past have. The end was funny, when he finally found someone to dance with in the fountain.

[COMMERCIAL] Cookie Dough Sport Drink

This was soooo funny. I was cracking up the whole time-even before I knew that cookie dough was involved, just because that was a great commercial to make fun of. The cookie dough made it even funnier.

Rating: 9 out of 10

 

[SKETCH] Celebrity Jeopardy

This is probably my second favorite recurring sketch. It wasn't as funny this time as it usually is, but it still made me crack up.

Rating: 8 out of 10

 

[SKETCH] Sarcasm 101

This was a hilarious sketch. The end was weak, but most sketch endings are weak. This was a great sketch. LOL.

" ... What was my response to that ... Oh yeah, I don't care!"

[SKETCH] The Ladies' Man

I think this was best sketch of the night in my personal opinion. I was laughing the whole time, and it was good from beginning to end.

Rating: 9 out of 10

 

[SKETCH] Space the Infinite Frontier with Harry Caray

This sketch was funny the first time it was done, but this time it was exactly like the other one. It did make me laugh, though.

Rating: 7 out of 10

 

[WEEKEND UPDATE] with Norm MacDonald

"Update" this week seemed weak. It wasn't very long, and there were only a few jokes worth laughing at.

Rating: 6 out of 10

 

[SKETCH] MTV News: Goat Boy press conference

This sketch was somewhat funny. I laughed a little. I still can't make up my mind on whether or not I like Goat Boy.

Rating: 7 out of 10

 

[COMMERCIAL] The Kevin Franklin Show promo

This was pretty funny. It was good at the end when you saw him 6 months later.

"It's going to be a partay!"

Rating: 8 out of 10

 

[SKETCH] "Friends"

This was hilarious ... right up until the end. What was up with that. It just sort of fizzled out. It was still funny as heck, and the impressions were dead on!

Rating: 8 out of 10

 

[MISCELLANEOUS] The Go Lords

I don't know, maybe I just don't get this sketch. I mean, it was funny and all, but I wasn't too crazy about it.

Rating: 6 out of 10

 

[SKETCH] Good Morning with Liza

This wasn't that great. Molly Shannon's characters are all too much alike. Tracy Morgan was the best part of the whole sketch.

Rating: 5 out of 10

 

OVERALL

This was a pretty average show in my opinion. However, I think there might of been more "9"s and "10"s had the sketches had better endings.
