EPISODE REVIEWS


Brendan Fraser / Busta Rhymes
February 13, 1999


[OPENING] NBC Special Report: Tripp interview- Darrell Hammond is bullet proof, and John Goodman as Linda Tripp is always brilliant. I didn't think King Ralph was that bad.

Grade: B+

 

[MONOLOGUE] Brendan Fraser- As far as monologues go it was funny. The rats playing the bees was pure genious. An apperance by Lorne Micheals is always a plus. I know Al Franken but, who is Tom Davis?

Grade: A-

 

[COMMERCIAL] Bio Flex- Yet another wonderful commercial parody. Will Ferrel in any skit is always appriciated.

Grade: B+

 

[SKETCH] Judge Judy- Cheri Oteri as Judge Judy is good, but Tracy Morgan as the baliff is great. "Up High!"

Grade: A

 

[SKETCH] "Just enjoy the Ozzie and keep your mouth shut"- Every show has to have a skit where the viewer can get a sandwich and this was it. The only plus was it reminded me of the skit where Kirste Alley and Kevin Nealon went to the resaturant and the waiters were making out with her.

Grade: D+

 

[SKETCH] Zimmermans workout at Hard Bodies- One of the best reccuring skits this cast has ever produced. What else can I say but "I did not go to the Fitness Institute for 3 weeks for this."

Grade: A

 

[TV FUNHOUSE] Fun With Real Audio (Poetry of Jewel)- Please.....No more Fun with Real Audio. Never have I seen a remotly funny one and this was no different. The only semi-comical part was the excessive Jewel bashing. Robert Smilgel needs to revert back to his Bears Fan days.

Grade: D-

 

[SKETCH] You're a Champion Charlie Brown- HA HA HA. I am still laughing. Maybe the best skit of the year.

Grade: A+

 

[WEEKEND UPDATE] with Colin Quinn- The dope smoking Tracy Morgan was funny, and Jimmy Fallon is the next Adam Sandler. This was hilarious, that's my story and I'm sticking to it.

Grade: A

 

[MUSICAL GUEST] Busta Rhymes- You people had enough? No? OK. Gimme some mo'! Holy Sh*t he talks fast.

Grade: B+

 

[SKETCH] Two Fat Ladies- Like Lorne Michaels says, "There's just something about fat people that makes them funnier than normal people."

Grade: B+

 

[SKETCH] Old Navy lady abuses escort- The Old Navy commercials really aggrevate me, but this skit was funny.

Grade: A-

 

[MUSICAL GUEST] Busta Rhymes- Why didn't he sing "Put Your Hands Where My Eyes Can See"?

Grade: C-
