EPISODE REVIEWS


Drew Barrymore / Garbage
March 20, 1999


[PRESHOW THOUGHTS]
I don't expect this to be that good.

 

[OPENING] E! Oscar Preshow with Joan and Melissa Rivers
Hillarious! I couldn't stop laughing. I loved the part where Joan Rivers was
up on the wire with the wings. 5/5

 

[MONOLOGUE] Drew Barrymore
Wicked funny. Oterri flashed her bra. 4.5/5

 

[SKETCH] Celebrity Jeopardy
I only have one thing to say to this: BUCK FUTTER! Good line: I'll take the
penis mightier. 5/5

 

[SKETCH] "How are you doing?" in Banana Republic
They went a litlle on the psyco side in this sketch. It could have used some
trimming. 3/5

 

[COMMERCIAL] VH1 Behind the Music: Captain and Tenille
Stupid. Couldn't follow it. 1/5

 

[SKETCH] The How Do You Say Ah, Yes, Show
Disgusting. He actually pulled his pants down. 3/5

 

[TV FUNHOUSE] Oscar Highlights
Verry funny. I liked the part where the cat cut the dog's head off and then
it later threw up. 5/5

 

[WEEKEND UPDATE] w/ Colin Quinn
Best Update ever. I can't stop laughing. Notice I used present tense in the
last sentence. Kattan was excellent. 5/5

 

[MUSICAL GUEST] Garbage
I hate heavy metal. I'm only giving them credit points on this one. 2/5

 

[SKETCH] Dog Show
Good to see Meadows in the show (and Molly and Drew making out). I hope I
just didn't type that. 4/5

 

[COMMERCIAL] VH1 Behind the Music: Deaf Leopard
Parnell was great. I still dozed off a little. 3/5

 

[SKETCH] Terrance Maddox Models for art class
I always wondered if Ferrel was really naked in these sketches. Barrymore
was gross with the armpit hair. 3.5/5

 

[MUSICAL GUEST] Garbage
I didn't watch this because I hate heavy metal.

 

[COMMECIAL] VH1 Behind the Music: Fred Schneider
I can't watch these. 2/5

 

Performer of the night: Chris Kattan

Sketch of the Night: The opening

Most Underused Performer: Tracy Morgan

[OVERALL]
Best SNL ever, let alone the season. 5/5
