EPISODE REVIEWS


Drew Barrymore / Garbage
March 20, 1999


[OPENING] E! Oscar Pre-Show with Joan and Melissa Rivers:
This was pretty funny, then it got a little scary, i love O'Teri as Melissa, very funny. Gastire didn't make a wonderful Joan Rivers, but she did her best.
Three stars ***

 

[MONOLOGUE] Drew Barrymore:
The song was good. I loved seeing Kattan, even if he was a wiskey bottle. And I liked seeing little Drew, because I saw that ep. and it was pretty good.
Four stars ****

 

[SKETCH] Celebrity Jeopardy:
This is always funny. Darrle and Will really make the show. It's usually not wonderful if Sean isn't in it. I love how he mixes up the catagories (i.e.~The pen is mightier....The penis mightier)
Three stars ***

 

[SKETCH] "How are you doing?" in Banana Republic:
This was okay. Not fantastic. Liked seeing Kattan. Ferelle was funny.
Three stars ***

 

[COMMERCIAL] VH1 Behind the Music: Captain and Tenille:
Well, originally I couldn't figure out who the hell Captain was, but i came here and found out. These are okay...i'm getting a bit tierd of them though, i miss the regualar fake commercials.
Two and a half stars **1/2

 

[SKETCH] The How Do You Say? Ah Yes, Show:
Well, I think we all realize by now I love Kattan. But, usually I don't like this sketch because they're the same thing. But with Mel. Grifinth (sp?), the was a twist thrown in. Plus I like the Zorro undies (hehehehe)
Four stars ****

 

[TV FUNHOUSE] Fun With Real Audio: Oscar Highlights:
I was dissapointed. I though this was extremely stupid...although i did enjoy trying to pick out the stars in the audience, the "plot" was kinda stupid.
Two stars **

 

[WEEKEND UPDATE] with Colin Quinn:
They're too long. Takes up too much of the show, but it was okay last night. Clinton was funny...but, in my opinion....Chris made the show...he really did. It was hilarious when he started yelling at Colin. "You stupid fool...rub ur nipple" And i loved it when he jumped on Colin....very Mr. Peepers-ish.
Clinton~Four stars ****
Chris Kattan~Four stars****
Altogether, including Colin~Four stars****

 

[MUSICAL GUEST] Garbage:
i'm not really a big fan, but I listend...they were okay
Three stars ***

 

[SKETCH] Dog Show:
This is the stupidest, yet, one of the funniest sketches. I love mr. bojangles.
Four stars ****

 

[COMMERCIAL] VH1 Behind the Music: Def Leopard:
Vaugly funny, like I said, i'm a bit tired of it.
Two stars **

 

[SKETCH] Terrance Maddox models for art class:
This is just horrible. once was okay, but it's the same exact thing every time. I didn't like it.
One star *



[MUSICAL GUEST] Garbage:
Same as above

 

[COMMERCIAL] VH1 Behind the Music: Fred Schneider:
This one was a little better, but I still don't like em.
Two stars **

 

Overall: I liked the show. I loved seeing Chris in more sketches. Jimmy was really on tonight..his Sandler is dead on. Hopefully we'll get just as good of a show next live one.
