EPISODE REVIEWS


Brendan Fraser / Busta Rhymes
February 13, 1999


PRESHOW THOUGHTS: I was smart enough to tape this episode and now I will cherish this as the best episode of the 98-99 season to date!

 

[OPENING] NBC Special Report: Tripp interview

Clinton: "I am Bulletproof!" and Goodman's Tripp mannerisms were a great way to start off the show. She should be a Patriot's linebacker. They need the help.

GRADE: A-

 

[MONOLOGUE] Brendan Fraser

Tom "Thought he died in 'Nam" was back!!!!! LOL! I was hoping they'd find Piscopo stoned under his bed. Just a reminder, there is a passage in the SNL Bar that leads to the 8H Fallout Shelter. Never cross Lorne on drug deals. Great mono!!!!

GRADE: A+

 

[COMMERCIAL] Bio Flex

Cute.....Ferrell's only "appearance". Just keep that ape outta my house (Not Ferrell, the other ape)

GRADE: B

 

[SKETCH] Judge Judy

Seemed a tad unfunny, but Brendan's "Howie Mandell" was great. If I sucked helium valves for 2 weeks, I could be a character on "Bobby's World" too.

GRADE: B

 

[SKETCH] "Just enjoy the Ozzie and keep your mouth shut"

Sanz was hilarious! This is the funniest he's ever been! Biting the chicken's head off sinched it: This was the best sketch since the Jingleheimer Junction!

GRADE: A+

 

[SKETCH] Zimmermans workout at Hard Bodies

Oteri is pretty sexy afterall. Fraser shoulda just let em go at it. I taped it and could pass it off as an XXX flick and make my friends pay $7.50 to see it. Too bad though.

GRADE: A-

 

[TV FUNHOUSE] Fun With Real Audio (Poetry of Jewel)

Someone should kill that woman. "Big Yellow Taxi" at the end was a refreshing change.

GRADE: B+

 

[SKETCH] You're a Champion Charlie Brown

Linus was freaking out, which make the sketch hysterical. The doctor with the adult's voice was kewl too.

GRADE: A+

 

[WEEKEND UPDATE] with Colin Quinn

::bows to the almighty Quinnmeister: This was the greatest WU of the year with Hammond, Morgan, and Fallon making it every bit better. Colin hit a bulls eye with almost every joke he told. YEAH COLIN!

GRADE: A+

 

[MUSICAL GUEST] Busta Rhymes

Didn't watch

GRADE: RP (Rating Pending)

 

[SKETCH] Two Fat Ladies

Pretty sick.....Fraser reminded me of.....of.....can't remember her name but she was a fat girl on the facts of life. Wait, that doesn't narrow it down!

GRADE: B+

 

[SKETCH] Old Navy lady abuses escort

Pretty weird....hate Old Navy so it's funny.

GRADE: A-

 

[MUSICAL GUEST] Busta Rhymes
