EPISODE REVIEWS


Drew Barrymore / Garbage
March 20, 1999


[OPENING] E! Oscar Pre-Show with Joan and Melissa Rivers
I missed this until the part where Jada threw the shoe at Melissa. I thought it was a good opening! The part where Joan flew up was cool!
MY GRADE: B+

 

[MONOLOGUE] Drew Barrymore
This monologue was perfect! The song was awful catchy, and at the part with,"...gave drugs the finger, then me and Adam made the Wedding Singer!" I thought the actul Adam would come out.... but Jimmy Fallon will do! one last thought: Where do they get those costumes?
MY GRADE: A-

 

[SKETCH] Celebrity Jeopardy
I love this sketch, but the last couple they did were a little better... a little. The Pen Is Mightier was clever, but I feel they didn't have to go on about the product Penis Mightier. It ruined it a little. Where was Nic's podium? (nodice the spelling on his podium, Nic) Calista didn't say much, but maybe she is that way. I liked when Sean called Alex all those names.
MY GRADE: A

 

[SKETCH] "How are you doing?" in Banana Republic
Uh...they could've done better with this. It was a little dumb, but that's the way comedy is...
MY GRADE: C

 

[COMMERCIAL] VH1 Behind the Music: Captain and Tenille
Why do they do so many of these. They only have a couple funny parts in them and they can be annoying. The whole time I was trying to figure out who that dude was. I was thinking, "Dana Carvey? No!!!!" But I think it was that Edward Norton Jr. dude..I think...
MY GRADE: C

 

[SKETCH] The How Do You Say? Ah Yes, Show
Antonia Bandaras! This skit is weird but funny. It made me quesay at times, with Melenie Grif-whatever. It's nice to see more of Chris Kattan...literaly...
MY GRADE: B

 

[TV FUNHOUSE] Fun With Real Audio: Oscar Highlights
I was laughing my ass off! With the cat slicing the dog's head off. It'll be sad to see these cartoons go...
MY GRADE: A

 

[WEEKEND UPDATE] with Colin Quinn
Some of Colin's jokes sucked, but you cant' have every week be a good one. Clinton again? Hmmm...advice, don't have Clinton on Weekend Update....and Chris Kattan gracing us with his presence was a pleasure once again! JUST TAKE MY HAND YOU BASTARD!
MY GRADE: B

 

[MUSICAL GUEST] Garbage
Garbage is really good. They deserve a better name though! I wish they would have played Temptation Waiting instead of Special.

 

[SKETCH] Dog Show
I was surprised to see this skit!! I was rolling of course! The cast doesn't realize how good they are, not to be laughing doing this, if I was up there I know I would have to be cracking up.
MY GRADE: A

 

[COMMERCIAL] VH1 Behind the Music: Def Leopard
Ok, this was good! Much better than the rest of the VH1 thingys. Bravo!
MY GRADE: A

 

[SKETCH] Terrance Maddox models for art class
Terrance Maddox is a hoot...I was wondering what Will is wearing to do this skit. The apearence of his "woman" made me laugh and at the same time feel ill.
MY GRADE: B

 

[MUSICAL GUEST] Garbage
hm...when we grow up is an awesome song! Viva la Garbage!
MY GRADE: A-

 

[COMMERCIAL] VH1 Behind the Music: Fred Schneider
was that makeup of Will? lol. this was good for the last skit!
MY GRADE: B-

 

[OVERALL]
This show kicked the mondo ass! For a couple weeks I though SNL was dying, but they pulled me back up like they usually do! Great job to the writers and cast this week! But one more thing, why don't they show the rerun of David Spade? It is making me sad because I NEED to see it!
MY GRADE: A+

 

[OUTLOOK FOR NEXT WEEK: Host: John Goodman | Musical Guest: Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers]
I should say NEXT TIME, but o well, you know what I mean! It's always a plesure to see John Goodman on SNL! It's always nice to have a host who you know loves being there, (not too put down anyone). Tom Petty rules! I love his music...coming from a teenage girl, that may sound funny but so what! I love him!
